RV Renovation Tour | A Rustic Bohemian Home on Wheels with @Our.Own.Beat

I’m so excited to highlight this family’s RV renovation.

Whit and Gui with their 2 kids and 2 dogs live and travel full-time in their remodeled 5th wheel.

Their RV story begins December of 2019 when they decided to rent out their home, sell their belongings, buy an RV, and travel full-time.

Before purchasing their RV, Whit and Gui already decided they wanted to renovate it and make it home.

Looking through their Instagram and pictures of their RV, I like to describe their style as Rustic Bohemian.

The warm earthy tones, the rustic wood trim, and the play with color, textures, and patterns give this RV the perfect combination of Rustic Bohemian.

I think they definitely accomplished their goal by making their RV a cozy and inviting home on wheels!

So check out their RV Renovation and get inspired!

Now that you’ve seen what Whit and Gui’s RV looked like before, check out the amazing after pictures.

It is totally transformed from the basic factory decor.

By painting their walls and cabinets, changing out the hardware, and getting creative by building a fold-down island, they made this 5th wheel their own.

Every detail of this home on wheels flows and provides a comfortable feeling of home.

I also love how they’ve created play space for their little ones. So, even when they’re on the road, the kids can still play dress up and more.

Dark and moody RV renovation tour

About Jordan | @bowenwiththeflow

Jordan is living the tiny RV life with her little dudes.

She describes her style as Hygge, Dark, and Moody!

If you don’t know what Hygge means, I didn’t either but I’m so glad I do now.

Hygge – A quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feel of contentment or wellbeing. (Danish Culture) Pronounced “huh-guh”

Her RV definitely embodies the very definition of “Hygge” perfectly!

Scrolling through her Instagram feed makes me want to cozy up next to a fire with a cup of hot coffee and a good movie or book.

Before we reveal the amazing after renovation makeover, check out what her RV looked like before.

Now that you’ve seen the before of Jordan’s RV, it’s time to take a look at her cozy RV renovation.

It truly gives you the Hygge feeling as described before.

She has transformed the area by painting her walls white and added a sharpie line for a ship-lap illusion. So creative!

Jordan has also painted her cabinets black and added Tic Tac Tile to her kitchen walls.

The tile was originally white with grey grout, but to stay true to her dark and moody feel she painted those a dark emerald green.

So, check out her RV renovation and GET INSPIRED!!!

Tips for Making Your RV Bedroom Cozy & Comfy + Lucid Mattress Review

Tips for Making Your RV Bedroom Cozy & Comfy + Lucid Mattress Review

RV Bedroom | If you’re reading this, you’re wondering how you can make your RV Bed a place that you enjoy laying down and falling asleep in.

After all, camping doesn’t always have to be roughing it. RV camping adds a special touch of luxury while enjoying the great outdoors.

So, let’s imagine for a moment that you’ve been hiking all day and all you want to do is lay down in a nice comfortable, and cozy bed. However, you lay down in your RV bed and it’s like you’re lying on a flat rock?

That doesn’t sound enjoyable to me and that’s what RV mattresses are like.

RV mattress review

We know firsthand that the mattresses that come standard in RV’s (unless you have it custom ordered) are far from being comfortable.

For us, the Mattress that came in our RV was the most uncomfortable mattress I’ve ever slept on. So, since we were going to be living full-time in our RV, getting a new mattress and making our bed comfy was a necessity.

Whether you plan on living full-time or enjoying your RV during the RV season, being able to relax comfortable is a necessity.

So here are some tips to get your RV bedroom ready for a comfortable night’s sleep.

1. Buy a Comfortable RV Mattress (LUCID RV Mattress Review)

The first thing you want to do in making your RV’s bed comfy and cozy is to check the quality of your mattress.

As I mention, RV mattresses are usually horrible to sleep on and made with cheap material. We slept on our mattress the first night we got our RV. It was the worst sleep I have ever had. Therefore, purchasing a new mattress was at the top of our list.

Side Note: At the beginning, we tried memory foam mattress toppers, but with the quality of the mattress, it began to sink in the middle and made it so uncomfortable.

So, we searched throughout the internet because we had to one that was an RV Short Queen to fit. These are hard to find at a good price and there are not many options to choose from.

We also didn’t want a spring mattress and always enjoyed memory foam.

After some research and finding different options, we decided to purchase the Lucid Mattress from Amazon.

We chose the Lucid Memory Foam Mattress in a box because of its reviews and availability in the size we needed. Plus, it was Free Shipping with Amazon Prime. This helped make our decision easier.

Another positive about purchasing this bed is how easy it was to set up. It’s just like any other bed in a box.

This mattress came with an envelope cutter/opener to cut the plastic wrap around the bed and protect the mattress from getting cut. That was a nice surprise when opening the box.

Once the mattress was removed from the plastic, we unrolled it and laid it flat on the bed platform. We allowed about an hour for it to inflate before placing our sheets and blankets on top.

The Lucid Mattress has been one of our favorite and best purchases we have made for our RV Bedroom. Getting a good night’s sleep is so important to us and the Lucid Mattress is so comforting.

The memory foam works perfectly in adhering to our bodies for a comfortable night’s sleep. It’s like sleeping a cloud that forms for your body!

I honestly have yet to have any negatives with our purchase. So far, the bed has held up and is still as comfortable as the day we got it.

Also, the price is unbeatable. Other RV beds cost hundreds of dollars more than the Lucid Mattress.

2. Buy Quality Soft Sheets

In all honesty, I have wasted so much money trying to cut corners when it came to buying sheets.

There are so many options out there! It can become a bit overwhelming to purchase the perfect sheets when you don’t know any of the sheet lingo.

You have terms like; thread count, material, and woven pattern.

But what are the best and most comfortable sheets?

Well, just like mattresses have different comfort levels, so do sheets.

Now, when you search for sheets, the thread count is usually what many get hung upon. If you stay above 500 to 600 thread count, you’ll be good with softness, durability, and affordability.

In my opinion, however, it’s more about the quality of the material and woven pattern.

Also, you don’t have to spend a fortune on Egyptian cotton sheets, unless you want too, to get a good quality comfortable sheet set.

After many purchases, I know I will NEVER buy microfiber sheets again. The synthetic material is not comfortable or soft.

I found that 100% cotton sheets are the best. Also, a sateen woven pattern with more threads going vertical than horizontal is what we enjoy.

We recently purchased the Hotel Style, 600 Thread Count, in Grey from Walmart for like $50. It’s a set of one fitted sheet, one flat sheet, and two pillowcases. These sheets have been great for our RV Bedroom and didn’t break the bank!

Here is a set on Amazon that is like our purchase – > 600 Thread Count 100% Cotton Sheets – Soft and Silky Sateen Weave https://amzn.to/2PDGUzR

3. Down Comforter or Duvet

Grab a comfortable comforter set with matching decorative pillow-cases.

If you enjoy a lightweight quilt or duvet cover then go with what you enjoy sleeping with. The point is that you’re comfy!

We purchased this pretty and neutral crisp white comforter set for our RV Bedroom. It’s the perfect amount of warmth and comfort for a good night’s sleep.

When it comes to the perfect comforter set, search for your style! Whether it’s cabin plaid, black and white boho, or full of colors and patterns.

RV Bedroom Made up

4. Extra throw blanket

I love the look of an extra throw blanket on the bed.

They keep you warm and gives you something to take a quick nap with, without messing up the perfectly made RV bed. And, we all know how difficult those RV beds are to make up.

For us, we have a weighted blanket that we place at the end of our bed as our extra throw blanket. I love it because it stays in place and is super comfy to cover up with for nap time.

5. Comfy Pillows & A Throw Pillow 

You can decide if you want to add a nice throw pillow for character or not.

I would advise that if you do like decorative throw pillows, to keep them at a minimum in an RV bedroom.

There is not much room, to begin with, and trying to find a place to put decorative pillows when you sleep isn’t easy.

Plus, less is more!

We have 4 pillows, and 1 throw pillow to add extra coziness.

Also, make sure the standard pillows you choose are what you enjoy sleeping with. Whether that’s a flat pillow, a fluffy pillow, or a memory foam pillow.

Final Thoughts

Now that you know how to make your RV’s bed comfy and cozy to have a good night’s rest while you’re camping, get out there and camp!

Enjoy your RVing journey with restful nights. We absolutely love our Lucid Mattress, our budget-friendly soft sheets, and cozy pillows.

They make all the difference and I’m sure they will make the difference in your RV bedroom as well. If you found this article helpful, please feel free to share!

24 RV Bathroom Remodels for Inspiration | Before and After Pictures

RV Bathroom Remodels are inspiring to say the least. Creating a little Spa in your Home on Wheels is to be desired by many. Being able to shower in a full-size shower or take a hot bath while you’re camping is a luxury.

RV Wallpaper | How to use peel & stick wallpaper to transform your Camper

RV Wallpaper | How to use peel & stick wallpaper to transform your Camper

RV Wallpaper | So many RVer’s and even home interior designers are embracing a new style and bringing back wallpaper.

For years the idea of wallpaper was a tacky way to decorate because the patterns available were not pleasing.

Well, that was then! Now, it’s become a great way to add texture, patterns, and character to any space.

Wallpaper has also come a long way with availability to patterns. Here is some ways you can add wallpaper in your camper to spruce up your campers interior.

Can you use Peel and Stick wallpaper in an RV?

Absolutely, YES!

We used a shiplap peel and stick wallpaper in our RV Bathroom.

Now, the wallpaper we used was white, so we decided to paint the wall ‘white’ before adding the wallpaper.

Just so you know, our walls were beige vinyl before painting them. I noticed when I tried to add the white shiplap wallpaper, the color of the wallpaper become faded. So by painting the wall first, allowing it to dry, then adding the wallpaper allowed the colors to be true.

Tip: Clean your walls before adding the peel and stick wallpaper to ensure the paper sticks and there is no dust.

Can you wallpaper over the RV wallpaper?

This depends on if your wallpaper is a strip or covers the whole wall. If you have a wallpaper strip, it is best to remove that strip from the wall first. The reason being is so you don’t have any uneven lines in your new wallpaper.

Tip: Make sure your walls are smooth before application of new wallpaper

Does Peel And Stick Wallpaper come off easily?

The simple answer is YES! Compared to traditional wallpaper or paint; peel and stick wallpaper is easy to remove and leaves little to no residue.
 
Peel and Stick Wallpaper is also a better option because it’s quick and easy to install. Plus, the application and clean up are super easy compared to traditional wallpaper. There is no sticky glue or messy paint to deal with.

How to use Peel and Stick Wallpaper

I feel like using the peel and stick wallpaper is super easy. You just have to make sure you have the right tools in order to keep air bubbles from accumulating under the paper.

You’ll want to get a wallpaper tool kit to help you measure, cut, and smooth it out once you apply it to the walls.

I love using the peel and stick wallpaper because you don’t have to deal with the sticky and messy glue.

Applying the peel and stick wallpaper is easy!

  1. Measure the piece of wall
  2. Measure the paper
  3. Cut accordingly
  4. Peel off the backing
  5. Stick on the wall slowly while applying pressure from the smoothing tool to release the air bubbles.
