No matter how long you have owned your touring caravan – there will always be something you want to add or update. Your touring caravan is a home away from home for you and your loved ones. Updating it can make it feel more loved and more homely. So, before jumping in at the deep end, what practical tips can you use to get started? What projects should you begin tackling first, and what is going to have the biggest impact?
Add New Blinds or Drapes
To add an instant lift to the windows in your touring caravan, you may wish to update the blinds or drapes that you have. Dated drapes and bland blinds can really drag down the interior aesthetics of a caravan. Adding light and bright window dressings can instantly lift a space and make it feel fresh and as good as new.
Update the Color Scheme
If your touring caravan is more than a few years old, it may be time to give the interior walls a lick of paint. There are special paints you can get that will adhere to the walls and make them both hard-wearing and washable too. If your touring caravan is more than a few years old, it may have a full cream or off-white tinge to the walls, leaving the whole interior feeling old and dated. A new coat of paint will brighten the entire space and make it smell fresh and as good as new.
Upgrade the Entertainment System
Older caravans are rarely equipped with entertainment systems. Some don’t even have working radios. Whether you are spending a few days in your caravan or you are traveling across the country, entertainment is essential. You will want to be sure that you have the best entertainment and the latest news at your fingertips. When you start looking at adding and upgrading, you will find that getting Sky in your caravan is not as difficult as you originally anticipated. Upgrading the entertainment system and ensuring you have a solid internet connection will help you feel connected at all times.
Don’t Forget the Exterior
It can be difficult not to get caught up in simply updating the interior of your caravan. Focusing on the exterior as well will ensure that your touring caravan looks good from the inside and from the outside too. Upgrading the exterior may require a good cleaning and a fresh coat of paint. Windows and finishings may also need upgrading as these can perish over time.
Focus on the Soft Furnishings
Back on the inside of the touring caravan, you may find that the soft furnishings are not to your liking, even on newer models. Upgrading the fold-out sofa or adding some new throws and cushions can make all the difference. When you are upgrading any soft furnishings, always be sure that you are updating with fabrics and materials that conform to the latest safety standards. If they don’t, you may find you could void any insurance policies you may have.
