5 Top Tips to Modernise your Static Caravan or Holiday Home

Most static caravans come pre-styled and furnished, which can save on initial costs, but may not always match your individual taste or style. However, there are lots of things that you can do to modernise your holiday home – and it’s easier than you might think! Here are our top 5 tips;

Upgrade tatty flooring – In older caravans, or those that have been well-used, the flooring is often the area that starts to age first. Replacing tired carpets with fresh lino or laminate flooring will instantly transform your interior. Or why not introduce a splash of colour with a new rug!

Update your seating – You have two options when it comes to updating your soft seating; re-upholstering or replacing.

Any good upholsterer should be able to remove and re-cover your fixed-seating with relative ease, and there are literally thousands of fabrics available to choose from. So, whether you’re looking for a subtle two-tone or a pink flamingo print, you will find something to suit your style! However, you should keep in mind that re-upholstering may not always be the cheapest option, with upholstery fabrics starting at around £20.00 per meter (plus labour).

Or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, why not remove your fixed-seating completely and replace it with free-standing sofas or armchairs. Re-invent your living space with maximum flexibility for the future!

Replace your curtains with blinds – Most older static caravans come with curtains. For a more contemporary feel, why not replace them with blinds? Made-to-measure blinds are easy to find online and will transform the look of your holiday home.

Refurbish your kitchen or bathroom – If you don’t have the budget for a brand-new kitchen or bathroom suite, replacing or painting cabinet doors is a great way to give your kitchen or bathroom a facelift without breaking the bank.

You can also immediately transform any space for very little cost by replacing tired tiles or splashbacks.

Re-cover your exterior – Over the years the exterior of your static caravan may begin to show signs of wear and tear, but this can quickly be transformed by covering the unit with vinyl cladding. Not only will this give your holiday home a modern new look, it will help with insulation and weather proofing.
