Whether for work or pleasure, RV’s, enclosed trailers and toy haulers usually wind up getting extra mileage during the fall/winter season. During the holidays, extra time on the road—away from home—may inspire RV owners to make their space seem a little warmer and more welcoming. Here are a few rules of thumb for making your RV feel like a home away from home:
Colors have been proven to strongly affect emotions and moods. By choosing the right colors for your space—from the wall colors to window treatments to bed coverings—you can change the way you feel while spending time in your RV.
Here are some of the various moods associated with certain colors:
- Blues: contemplation, amazement, calm
- Greens: virility, admiration, trust
- Yellows: friendliness, optimism, serenity
Add Personal Touches
Although it may be tempting to spruce up your RV with some cute knickknacks from Crate & Barrel, one thing that really makes small spaces feel like home is the inclusion of personal items. For example: family photos, favorite books and mementos from previous travels. And don’t forget that your style should also come into play; don’t just add keepsakes because they’re personal, include items that show your personality as well. Perhaps a print from your favorite artist is more appropriate than a photo of grandma.
Remember Less is More
Adding items to your small space won’t necessarily make your RV cozier during your travels. Sometimes, bringing too much can make you feel more crowded and stressed than taking things away. Be sure to keep your space organized, clean and sparing in order to really relax. After all, a sense of peace and comfort is the ultimate sense of feeling like you’re at home.
