When you’re on the road, the only things you should be yearning for are your next adventures. Don’t hold yourself back from enjoying your trip by longing for the little comforts of home that you had to leave behind. Instead, bring them with you!
Here, we’ve outlined a list of simple things you can do to make your RV bedroom feel like the most cozy place in the world. In fact, after you make these changes, we can’t guarantee you’ll ever want to leave it.
Add cozy lighting When you’re at home, chances are you don’t sit in bed with the overhead light on. The same should go for your RV. Invest in table-side lamps that have soft, diffusing lighting. This will help you wind down after a long day of driving or exciting adventures.
Freshen up the room with plants Having plants in the bedroom not only helps clean and circulate the air, it makes you feel rooted. Lavender is a great choice because it doesn’t need to be watered a lot and it’s going to fill your room with a wonderfully aromatic smell. If you’re looking for a plant that can really filter the air, though, go for a spider plant. They absorb odors and fumes you’ll pick up on the road, and release oxygen that promotes better sleep.
Spring for a custom mattress Many RV owners settle for the mattress that came with their camper. Assuming it will be too difficult and expensive to find a custom-sized mattress, they sleep uncomfortably during a time when proper sleep is needed most. Not only will a good night’s sleep prepare you for the exciting adventures that lie ahead, the alertness from a full night’s rest will make you a safer driver. Today, investing in a tailor-made mattress is easier and more affordable than ever. In just a matter of days, you can have your mattress sized and customized -- ensuring it fits in your built-in bed and provides you with the best night sleep. Choose from a variety of sizes and materials -- from Custom Foam for those who want more support, Memory Foam with cooling technology for those who like the cold side of the pillow and Pocket Coil for a traditionally-firm feel without the sagging.
Treat yourself luxury bedding Don’t just take the old sheets and comforters from home and throw them in the RV. At the end of a long day, your bedroom is the place where you’ll recharge and relax, and your bedding goes a long way in helping you do so. We suggest investing in high thread count cotton sheets that will feel luxurious but allow breathability. You should also opt for a cotton quilt for those warmer months and a down blanket with a pretty-patterned duvet for the cooler months. The down might cost you a little more, but it will ensure you’re always the right temperature -- never too hot or cold. And if you’re worried about the sheets not fitting your custom mattress, go one size bigger than you need and bring them to a tailor to have them fitted. It will be well worth the investment.
Repaint the room and make it yours The color of your bedroom can greatly affect your mood and change the entire feeling of a space. And since you’re dealing with such a confined area, color is even more important. Many times, people want their smaller RV bedrooms to feel big, so they paint them white. But the problem with white is that it can feel sterile, and sometimes it actually makes the room feel smaller. We suggest opting for neutrals or lighter colors. For example, a blue-gray is soothing and will make white cabinets pop. And a sandy color with cool undertones can counteract warm, wooden shelving and make the space feel more modern.
