I love renovations. It’s an ‘I draw floor plans for a hobby’ kind of love. Although I’ve yet to do an RV reno, I’ve done my share of house renovations. One of my favourite things about reno’s (besides making a home or space completely, uniquely yours) is the environmentally friendly, recycling aspect to them.
Everyday, more people are realizing that we can’t, and don’t want to, maintain the consumption rate of our throw-away culture. We’re investing in sustainable design and making use of reclaimed, salvaged materials in our lives. We’re more thoughtful about what we need and what we don’t, we’re being drawn to minimalism and more and more older and vintage items, including RV trailers (yay!), are being renovated, repurposed and having new life breathed into them.
Whether you are a renovation aficionado, a vintage RV lover or you just don’t have the budget for a new RV…here are 30 sublime ideas to make you long for a project of your own.
#1 – Cozy, bright, this is nicer than some condo’s I’ve been in!
#2 – Light and airy with a new office view whenever you choose!
#3 – I love the luxe feel to this trailer.
#4 – Add a huge pop of personality with a patterned wall or two!
#5 – With lots of windows and changing scenery, going clean and simple is a great option!
#6 – This reminds me a bit of a cabin…and I love that!
#7 – I feel like I could hang out here with a cigar and a brandy.
#8 – You can’t go wrong with wood ceiling and white kitchen and walls. And then a pop of colour with plants and accessories.
#9 – Striking contrast…mix darker (floor, sink and backsplash) with lighter (upper cabinets, ceiling, walls).
#10 – Great before and afters at this site! I love the fireplace…this reminds me of a family TV room.
#11 – Check out this sofa re-do/how-to. This site is great for RV renovation ideas, too!
#12 – Adorable bunk idea with lower storage.
#13 – This site is a full tutorial on all the DIY that went into this little beauty. It’s so tiny!!
