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. 

Quick note: You can also use an extra spray adhesive for an extra stick (if you don’t plan on removing it). Sometimes if you store your RV, the heat could cause the paper to peel. Although this has not happened to me, I have heard of it happening. 

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.

7 Adorable RV Nursery Makeovers You Will LOVE

RV Nursery Makeovers are so inspirational, especially if you’re expecting a child or have children already.

Who doesn’t love a great before and after with gorgeous decor?

During my journey in deciding how we were going to rearrange our RV to add in all the baby stuff, I found myself searching to see what others had done.

You see, when you live in an RV and bring a baby on board, you have to get creative in ways you may not have been before.

Through my search, I fell in love with these gorgeous RV Nursery Makeovers and I am positive you will too!

This first RV Nursery Makeover is by Alexis Walls. Her and her husband have two adorable little boys that share their remodeled space. They were able to fit a toddler bed, crib, and dresser which holds all the boys clothes, blankets, and more.

What a great renovation and use of space. You can check out their full remodeled RV on their Instagram @thetinywallsfamily 

This gorgeous second RV Nursery Makeover is by Victoria Kepley. Her Instagram handle is @joyinthej0urney. They live fulltime in their fifth wheel with their baby boy and 2 pups.

I love the use of the space, and choice of the mini furniture like the crib called the Babyletto Origami Mini Portable crib. You can check out more useful baby furniture that is great for RV living here on my post “Must Have Baby Items for Your RV”

I love this next remodel! It is such a creative way to add space for your little one if you don’t have a bunkhouse or extra room in your RV. As you can see in the Before, they took out the chairs and replaced it with the beautiful dresser, baby bassinet, and bouncer.

This remodel is by Dee and Nate who live with their 2 dogs, 2 cats, and their baby girl. You can see more of their RV remodel by following them on Instagram @thejollyrogercrew.

This Beautiful nursery remodel was done by Sydney with a little help from @theflippingnomad. They actually took the doors off their closet in their bedroom, and converted it into their tiny nursery.

What a genius idea and great use of space. Sydney lives full time in her RV with her husband, 2 dogs, and baby boy. You can follow her on Instagram @swannofakind. 

This next nursery remodel is actually not in an RV but in a Bus that was renovated by Ian and Hannah. They live in Florida with their little girl and baby boy (on the way).

During their conversion, they made sure to add a nook for their daughter, and what a beautiful little nook it is!

RV Remodel : How To Use TIC TAC TILE To Upgrade Your RV Kitchen

RV Remodel : How To Use TIC TAC TILE To Upgrade Your RV Kitchen

Are you looking to do an RV Remodel to your home on wheels?

Are you checking out all the Instagram and Pinterest boards with beautiful remodels and dreaming about creating your own amazing space in your RV?

Well, you’re in the right place!

Before we even purchased our RV I knew I wanted to make my own modifications and do a little remodeling to make it fit our style. The main reason is that a lot of the RV’s are very “brown” and out of date.

If you’re like me you probably loved seeing all the amazing RVer’s that have transformed their kitchens on social media. Seeing these kitchens fueled my desire to transform ours and I hope it’s fueled your desire as well!

During my dreaming stage of an RV remodel, I noticed one modification many were completing in their kitchens was adding tile for a backsplash.

This is the first thing we did to add our own style into the space, and we have absolutley no regrets! It brings an incredible feeling of uniqueness and character to our kitchen.

After I decided that tile was what I wanted to do first, I began my search for the perfect lightweight stick on option that didn’t require all the fancy grout and plaster. I needed something quick and easy, something that would make a nice design statement. I also didn’t want to spend too much money because I was on a budget.

I searched through Home Depot, Lowes, and online. Through my research, I found a company and a product called TIC TAC TILE. Of course, I am a review type of buyer. If the reviews are not good, then I continue looking for another product. I always make sure I look at the negative and positive reviews.

What I found was that the reviews were mostly positive. The bad reviews couldn’t outweigh the good ones in my opinion. Plus the price was reasonable, compared to other brands that I found.

I was overwhelmingly excited to start the remodel on our kitchen! Something I had been dreaming of before we even purchased the RV. These tiles seemed like the perfect place to start.

Therefore, I decided to go forward with the TIC TAC TILE and ordered them directly off Amazon. They had the best price and fast shipping with Amazon Prime.

How to apply?

To start the RV remodel with TIC TAC TILE, let me be the first to say that the application is pretty easy. However, having patience and precision is key to making it look amazing. Here is a step by step on exactly what I did to apply my TIC TAC TILE.

  1. Clean —-> Cleaned the wall surface with a plain disinfectant wipe. You can also use white vinegar, TSP, or whatever kind of cleaning product that is multi-surface and has a degreaser.
  2. Dry —-> Make sure the wall is completely dry!! This is important. The sticky adhesive does not stick to any wet surfaces.
  3. Measure —-> Now when starting out you can get away with just adding an entire page of the tile, however, once you start to get around edges and windows, measuring is important.
  4. Cut —-> Once you’ve measured, now is time to trim the pieces to the desired/needed size. For cutting, I found after using scissors, that a box cutter and cutting board made the perfect tool. The box cutter is more precise and sharper when getting through the tile, adhesive, and the adhesive protectant.
  5. Stick —-> Now, remove the backing of the TIC TAC TILE that protects the adhesive. Then stick the tile on the wall to the desired position. It’s might take a few tries to get the hang of it and get it perfectly lined up.
  6. Repeat —-> Just go ahead and repeat steps 1 through 5 until the job is completed to your satisfaction.

Positives:

This product adds character to your RV with minimal prep. The product is heat and mold resistant, lightweight, and perfect for the kitchens and bathrooms in any recreational vehicle.

TIC TAC TILE is also very affordable and Eco-friendly! The material is very easy to clean after oil or splattered food from cooking gets on the tile.

Negatives:

Many have complained about the adhesive not sticking all the way and corners coming off the walls. However, there are steps to take to prevent this. Such as cleaning the area properly and adding your own additional adhesive to the edges.

I would also avoid applying the product while in extreme heat or humidity to allow the adhesive to stick properly. It is tedious work, so having patience while applying the product is important.

Where to buy?

As I mentioned, Amazon is the place I purchased our TIC TAC TILE. You can choose from a variety of colors and styles. We chose the classic white Subway tile look with the grey grout.

There are available as 12 x 12 sheets and you can either purchase 1 sheet, 5 sheets, or 10 sheets. I purchased the 3 of the 10 sheet packs to complete the kitchen and bathroom. I do have leftover tile, which I am okay with because I would rather have too much than not enough.

If you are thinking about changing things up a bit in your home on wheels with a little RV remodel then TIC TAC TILE is a great place to start!

We absolutely love the look and feel in our Kitchen now! It adds our own touch and flair to the space. Plus, our RV is no longer the cookie-cutter décor with the brown boring interior. 

The TIC TAC TILE also made the kitchen area feel like its own little corner by separating it from the rest of the RV’s décor. It almost feels like you get a new kitchen by adding the simple tile.

So, if you’re looking for a budget friendly way to add some flair and personality to your home on wheels then I definitely recommend TIC TAC TILE!
