6 ways to decorate your motorhome

Whether you’re renting one of our motorhomes for a family road trip or have invested in your own vehicle, decorating the interior can make a world of difference.

Adding your own touch can make you feel more comfortable and relaxed in the space, enhancing your holiday experience. A well-decorated and maintained motorhome can also increase the resale value of your vehicle.

Read on for 7 great decoration ideas for your motorhome to positively impact your trip. If you’d prefer to rent instead of buy, our vehicles are ready to go whenever you are.

1. Create a cosy ambience with lighting

Creating a cosy lighting setup in your motorhome involves a combination of light sources, positioning, and control over the intensity and colour.

You could add fairy lights or strip lights around the top of your ceilings or over your bed, or add a small bedside lamp for late-night reading and writing. Opt for warm bulbs (3000k) for a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Task lighting, such as under cabinet lights or spotlights, are ideal for kitchen and bathroom areas. Pair this with a pendant light for overall illumination to enhance visibility and safety during dark hours.

2. Smart use of textiles

Fabrics, cushions, curtains, and rugs… the keys to a comfortable motorhome.

Add a decorative throw and matching cushion to your bed and seating areas for a cohesive and stylish look. For a maximalist interior, add some matching curtains and a soft rug.

Invest in good quality, compact bedding that is both comfortable and space-efficient. This will ensure a good night’s sleep after a long day of driving.

3. Eco-friendly decorations

Indoor plants are a great way to uplift your motorhome’s interior and improve air quality.

These can be hung from hanging baskets or placed in beautiful pots for a bohemian touch. If you want to go a step further, an indoor wall trellis is perfect for plant lovers. Snake plants and succulents are great for surviving indoors.

Choose recycled furniture or create your own DIY decor for an eco-friendly approach. This could include antique ornaments or repurposing tin cans into plant holders.

4. Personal touches

To bring a piece of home on the road with you, add your favourite photographs and artwork to the walls. Use magnetic or lightweight frames and command strips for easy and damage-free hanging.

You could adorn your bed with blankets or your childrens favourite stuffed animals, or bring a stash of books to keep you occupied during the night.

If you’re a frequent traveller, decorate your motorhome with souvenirs or keepsakes from the places you’ve visited.

5. Colour scheme and wall patterns

Choosing the right colour scheme for your motorhome is crucial for a harmonious space.

Pick one or two of your favourite colours which work well together and use them as the main theme for your interior. Blues, greens, and yellows are a great choice for a calming and earthy atmosphere.

Lighter colours can make small spaces feel larger and more open, whilst darker colours can make the motorhome feel more confined.

To add depth and character, you can also decorate the walls with patterned wallpaper or decals.

6. Functional decor

When you have limited space to work with, functional furniture is a must!

Use magnetic spice racks and utensil holders for your kitchen to keep all your essentials organised and accessible.

Multi-functional alternatives such as sofa beds and ottomans are great for hidden storage. This provides more floor space and makes the vehicle less cluttered.

For days out in nature, store foldable chairs and tables. This is ideal for when you have guests over or host bbq’s in the summer.
