5 Easy RV Decor Ideas

Here at Alpin Haus, we may be biased, but we believe your RV is meant to be your home away from home. With that being said, we’ve come up with five easy and affordable ways to decorate your camper to make it feel homier. Hopefully our list will spark some inspiration for this coming camping season! 

1. Indoor Plants (The more, the better!) 

Plants are an excellent home decor option because of their aesthetic and health benefits. Did you know that certain houseplants can improve air quality and alleviate stress? Ignite your inner green thumb by adding some greenery to your space!

There are several plants that thrive in low to medium indirect light. When making selections for your RV, it is important to find plant types that fit a light profile that matches your camper’s interior. A favorite amongst horticulturists is the Snake Plant because of its resilient nature and minimal upkeep. It is also known to be an indoor air purifier, so all the better if it is placed where you sleep! 

The addition of hanging plants adds an aesthetic flair that can make your camper feel more like home. Trailing plants are great space-savers that help enhance overall coziness. English ivy is an excellent choice because it is pleasant to look at, thrives on low to medium indirect light, and improves air quality. Consider incorporating some draped foliage into your RV this season!

Looking for a smaller option? Succulents are also a great choice as they are versatile, hearty, and require little attention. Small succulents can be placed anywhere from a windowsill in the kitchen to a coffee table in your living area. An added decorative element is selecting fun pots which will contribute to making your RV feel cozier and more personalized. 

2. Rugs 

Rugs are an easy way to liven up a space. There are several textures, types, colors, and styles to choose from so it is easy and fun to find one that suits you and your family’s style preferences. Decorative rugs are a great way to incorporate a unique personal touch into your RV and allow you to add fun colors and patterns to your camper’s interior and exterior.

Rug runners are inexpensive and can make your space feel cozier. An outdoor camping rug is also an excellent way to enhance your camping experience. RV outdoor rugs help track in less dirt, offer children a clean place to play outside comfortably, and allow you to add a personal touch to your campsite.

3. Blankets 

Like rugs, blankets are essential in making your camping experience as comfortable and cozy as possible. What sounds better than cozying up with your family and a chunky knit blanket after a long day spent soaking up the great outdoors? Blankets add an element of warmth to your space that help make your RV feel like a home away from home. Selecting fun blankets is a great way to get creative with design and not break the bank.

 The next time you pack up your RV for a family camping trip, consider bringing some favorite blankets from your house. This is a great way to make your camper feel like home, especially for the kids. The added familiarity that comes with bringing along well-loved blankets will add another layer of coziness to your camping experience.

4. Wax Melts and Diffusers 

Did you know that your sense of smell has the strongest connection to emotion and memory than any other sense? For example, the scent of a crackling campfire can reignite vivid memories of camping during childhood with such clarity that it conjures more detail than old family photos or videos. 

The addition of your favorite wax melts could be the perfect way to make your RV feel more like home. Consider using the same scents that are regularly used in your house in your camper as well. This will subconsciously make your camping experience homier due to our olfactory bulb. An easy way to make your space feel more homey is to bring familiar wax melt scents that you and your family already love. 

Scents are a huge contributor to the overall ambiance of a space. In addition to having strong ties to memory, scents can also impact mood and well-being. An essential oil diffuser is an aesthetically pleasing decorative addition as well as a way to uplift the moods of the whole family! Essential oils are great because they are all-natural and provide a range of health benefits. For example, essential oils offer therapeutic benefits that can help with conditions such as insomnia, nausea, anxiety, and depression. 

Some people find lemon essential oil to be a mood booster. Adding lemon oil to your diffuser could be great on those groggier camping days when energy is low. Citrus scents are often used in cleaning products. Using lemon essential oil in your diffuser gives you the added benefit of making your RV feel fresh and clean. Lavender essential oil is another fantastic option as it is known to promote sleep, increase relaxation, and alleviate stress.

Adding an aromatic element to your camper is a great way to improve moods, promote relaxation, and make your RV feel more like home. 

5. Wall Decor 

Last but certainly not least, adding wall d├ęcor is a great way to decorate and conserve interior real estate. Decorating the RV walls presents a great opportunity to incorporate your family into the space. You could include beloved photos of family, friends, and pets. Covering your walls with family photos is a great way to personalize your camper and make it feel like home. 

Additionally, incorporating a tiled backsplash with an accent color into your kitchen area could take your RV’s interior to the next level. If you are more attracted to the rustic feel, wood paneling is another way to make your space feel more homelike. 

We at Alpin Haus believe your RV is your home away from home. Making your camping experience homier needn’t be pricey or difficult. In fact, it can be fun! With creativity and personal flair, you can transform your camper into a comfortable home for your whole family!
