The downfall of RVs is that they come already decorated, so essentially what you see is what you get. Some models stay pretty true to modern decor, while others sacrifice style in order to keep prices lower. And when it comes to some storage products, well, let's just say they don't do a lot to help with the decor, especially in an RV. Forget drab RVs; it's time for a DIY makeover! Check out these easy DIY ideas to boost the aesthetics of RV storage to take your space from blah to beautiful!
Looking for something both stylish and functional? Add an ottoman to your living area setup! It's especially great if you have a sofa that doesn't come with footrests, which most do not. You can kick your feet up and relax, and also store extra items easily!
To store more, add a decorative trunk to your living space! They can be super stylish and eclectic, ranging in styles from vintage to modern! You could even use one as a coffee table of sorts, if you have the extra room in your living area! Just one thing to be careful of is to avoid trunks that are extremely heavy. You don't want to overburden your RV, which can cause some serious damage.
A quick, easy, and aesthetically-pleasing way to add some storage space to your RV is by adding some decorative canisters to countertop spaces. This works well for the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and other places with a flat surface! They're perfect for loose food items, things like cotton balls and Q-tips, or even loose change! Get canisters that go with your decorating style for a unified look. Can't find the style you want? Decoupage plain canisters for the exact patterns you were looking for!
Funky Spice Storage
Tired of your spices getting jumbled around inside the cupboards? This is the perfect DIY solution! Decorate a cookie sheet with paint, fabric, or whatever covering you'd like. Add magnets to the bottom of spice jars and voila! Easy, decorative storage!
Eclectic Shelf Storage
One of the most fun and functional ways to make storage easier in your RV is to add some neat, unique shelving! Hit up your local antiques mall, Goodwill, or even your local craft store. If you want to stay true to your DIY theme, repurpose these shelves, or purchase one that you can decorate yourself! If you're super crafty, build your own shelves for a one-of-a-kind look!
Shoe and Boot Station
For a modern way to keep your RV clean while adding some sophistication to your space, make your own pebble shoe and boot station! Just take a new or used boot tray, fill it with rocks or pebbles from the dollar or craft store, and there you have it! This will help to keep your shoes and boots organized while looking effortlessly elegant!
Plastic Silverware Holder
If you're sick and tired of trying to keep plastic utensils organized and want to keep them accessible to make them easy to take outside, make your own utensil holder! Use an empty six-pack box and cover it with scrapbook paper or whatever you'd like. Done! Wasn't that SO incredibly easy? Now you have something to easily transport utensils and condiments outside! If you're feeling particularly colorful, choose colored plastic silverware to match your utensil holder!
Colored Totes and Shelves
Who says exterior storage has to be drab? Liven up the aesthetics of your exterior RV storage with fun colored totes and boxes! Sure, you won't be able to see these all the time, but it'll be a nice splash of color when you go to unload your RV, and they'll also help to keep your storage compartments from getting chaotic and cluttered. Use colored drawer carts, like this Seville Classics cart, to keep items organized both inside and out!
