5 Tips for Making your Static Caravan feel like Home

19/9/18

If you’ve recently purchased a static caravan, or are thinking of doing so, you may be wondering how you can create a comfortable and relaxed home away from home. We’ve put together our top tips on how to add the finishing touches to make your static caravan feel like home.

Add Mirrors

Static caravans are small, and whilst this creates a cosy atmosphere, it’s often the contrary to what our homes are like. Adding mirrors throughout the static caravan can help to make the space feel bigger, as well as bring in extra light to create an airy feel to an otherwise cramped caravan.

Curtains

Even if your static caravan is located on the seafront and you can’t tear your eyes away from the view, you need to add curtains for your own privacy. Aside from that, curtains can add a pop of colour to the interior of a static caravan, whilst opting for blackout curtains are a great way to ensure you get a good night’s sleep, just like you would back in your own bed at home.

Decoration

If you have built a second-hand caravan home, it may not be decorated to your tastes. Luckily, they can be easily decorated with a fresh lick of paint or wallpaper of your choice to easily create a static caravan that feels like your home. Static caravans aren’t big, so it shouldn’t be a huge expense to redecorate yours.

Beds

The thing you love most about your home is probably your bed, which is why it’s so important for the bed in your static caravan to be just as comfortable. Keep costs to a minimum by opting for a memory-foam mattress topper and some luxury pillows and sheets. A good night’s sleep will help you to make the most of your holiday!

Personal Touches

Add smaller, personal touches around your static caravan for it to really feel like a home away from home. This can be done by dotting artwork, ornaments and photos of your family and friends around the place. As static caravans are quite small spaces, ensure you don’t create too much clutter with random bits and bobs, instead choose a few statement pieces.

The more often you visit your static caravan, the quicker it will begin to feel like a real safe haven and home away from home. If you’re looking for the perfect static caravan suited to you and your family, we can help.
