9 Vintage Caravan Design Tips to Bring Your Unique Style to Life

Love the vintage look? Consider a vintage caravan project to let your creative side out.

Interested in how you can do this? Keep reading for nine tips to help you bring your unique style to life:

1. Look at the Big Picture

Give everything a thorough once-over before you make any drastic changes. Your focus should be on restoration instead of replacement. Think outside the box and use the design elements that can be restored to inspire your design. If something draws your eye (even in a bad way), ask a restoration expert for more information.

2. Think Outside The Box

Use your imagination and create a design scheme that goes beyond vintage florals. If you’re having trouble coming up with an idea, find a photo, a roll of wallpaper, a chandelier, etc. to act as your muse.

3. Stay True To Yourself

Have faith in your ideas and don’t let other dissuade you from your path. Vintage 1950’s style accents are in style right now, but that’s not the only option available. Let your heart guide your imagination — it will always lead you in the right direction.

4. Start with Cleaning & Repairs

Create a foundation for your design by cleaning your caravan from top to bottom. Fix any leaks and make necessary repairs to both the inside and outside of the caravan. Then track down and install any missing bits like indicator light covers, hub caps, etc.

5. The Floor is the Foundation

No matter how you design your caravan, make sure that the flooring is able to withstand regular use. Also, the floor should be easy to clean. Take things one step further by turning the flooring into a design feature. A good option is the black and white checkered flooring — it’s a simple design that makes a bold statement.

6. Stock Up On Your favorite Books

All those books that you’ve been meaning to read will come in handy during lazy days in your caravan.

7. Add Some Music!

Buy a radio or iPod for your caravan. These devices will come in handy during rainy evenings and lazy days. Nothing says relaxation more than listening to your favorites artists.

8. Show Off Your Crafty Side by Making a Sunshade

They are simple and quick to make, plus they allow you to enjoy your caravan without an awning. As an added bonus, the money that you will save by making your own can be put to use on more fun items.

9. Enjoy Yourself

Vintage caravan projects can be rewarding and fun. Plus, this little makeover will give you the chance to explore the rules of style.
