Inexpensive And Creative Tips To Dress Up Your Second Hand Caravan

January 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 151

One of the main reasons that second hand caravans can be so off putting to some people is that they can appear quite old and outdated. There is nothing wrong with buying a second hand van, and with these inexpensive and creative tips to dress yours up, you'll have it looking as good as new in no time.


It really is true that a coat of paint can breathe new life into a space. For a second hand caravan, why not paint the inside walls and cupboards? Timeless colours, such as creams and browns, can work nicely, or why not use some bold shades to bring out your personality? It is also possible to paint the exterior of your used caravan, but you will need to get this professionally done in most cases (like you would a car).


More often than not, the curtains in second hand caravans are dull, lacy or look as if they've come straight out of a time machine. Go to a fabric shop and find some material that you love and that matches your new paint job. If you have access to a sewing machine, or know someone who does, you can easily make your own curtains. For a more modern look, you may want to look at installing blinds or shutters over your caravan windows.


Whilst you're buying fabric for your brand new curtains, why not grab some extra reams to recover the seat cushions of your caravan? Again, this can be a fairly easy project, especially if you use the original covers as a guide for sewing the new ones. If you would like, it is also possible to entirely replace the cushions, covers and all. Why not add some couch pillows to the seating area or your caravan? Not only will this make your caravan feel more lived in, it will add an element of comfort for your family.


One of the final ways to dress up your second hand caravan is to add some accessories that make the space more 'you'. Buy some attractive kitchen utensils and crockery, perhaps in designs that match the rest of your colour scheme, and add some placemats and table runners. Update the electronics, such as the television, microwave and toaster, so that you can still have your creature comforts. Hang a piece of artwork on a wall, or add a creative clock. The accessory possibilities are endless.

Don't let the appearance of a second hand caravan deter you from having the holiday home of your dreams - using the above inexpensive and creative tips, you can turn your second hand van into a chic and comfortable space.
