5 Ways A Campervan Conversion Can Provide Luxury & Comfort
For most, camping is less about the facilities and more about the adventure, getting out on the road for a few days to relax and take in the scenic views. However, just because you won’t be staying in plush hotels or eating at fancy restaurants, that’s not to say you can’t enjoy luxury and comfort in your campervan.
In fact, one of the main reasons many choose campervans over traditional camping is the level of comfort. With beds, proper cooking facilities and not to mention flushing toilets all part of the campervan experience, it’s little wonder more and more families are ditching tents in favour of motorhomes.
In this blog post, we'll explore five key ways a campervan conversion can add some style, luxury and comfort to your camping, transforming your van into a home away from home.
The foundation of any cosy campervan interior is its flooring. So when it comes to comfort, adding a luxurious carpet can make all the difference.
High-quality, soft carpets in particular will provide comfort underfoot. Likewise, carpets with thermal insulation properties can help regulate the temperature inside the campervan, making it nice and warm all year-round.
Your carpet will experience a lot of foot traffic and chances are you and your family will be picking up mud and other debris on your shoes while you’re out on your adventures. So choose one that’s easy to clean and maintain, ensuring a long-lasting luxurious look.
Your level of comfort while you’re out on the road can make or break your trip – and your back! So when it comes to kitting out your campervan, you’ll want the most comfortable sitting and sleeping arrangements possible.
This is why furniture plays such a pivotal role in a campervan's interior, so to create a comfortable haven where you and your family can spend a relaxing weekend, pay special attention to your choice of furnishings.
Let’s face it, the British weather is unpredictable at the best of times, so chances are you’ll be spending at least some of your time in your van. Therefore, comfortable, ergonomic seating is essential.
Premium-quality convertible beds contribute to comfort in multiple ways. Not only will they help you get a great night’s sleep, but they’ll save space during the day which should help you feel less cramped.
Finally, a well-designed dining area can enhance your campervan's functionality and luxury, allowing you to enjoy your meals together just like you would at home. For visual purposes, you can choose a table and seating that match your style.
Windows And Sunroofs
Maximising natural light and allowing proper ventilation are essential aspects of comfort in a campervan. Large windows will flood the interior with light, as well as providing stunning scenic views.
Or if scenic views are less of a priority and you’d prefer privacy, you could opt for tinted windows instead. Tinted windows may be the most comfortable option as they shield you from the sun’s glare on particularly hot days. Ultimately, it all boils down to your personal preferences.
If your campervan allows, adding a sunroof or two can create a bright and airy atmosphere which is perfect in the sweltering summer months. It can also allow for a spot of stargazing at night, so the benefits are aplenty!
Gourmet Kitchen Facilities
A well-equipped kitchen is every luxury camper's dream and it can help take your comfort levels to the next level! For those looking for the perfect kitchen to help them knock up some culinary delights in their campervan, there are many features you can add to help you achieve your aim.
Start by choosing high-quality, compact kitchen appliances such as a convection oven, refrigerator and induction cooktop.
Space is at a premium in any campervan, so consider storage with well-organised cabinets and drawers to keep your kitchen essentials handy.
For some, one of the most daunting things about camping is the toilet arrangements. However, investing in a well-designed bathroom, complete with a flushing toilet, can be a real game-changer.
Likewise, a compact wet room with a shower and toilet can provide all the comfort of home, while heated floors can add an extra layer of snugness, especially if you’re using your van in the colder months.
So that’s how to turn a campervan into a relaxing retreat you can enjoy all year round. If you’re looking for a campervan conversion, this is how we can assist in making your van as homely as possible.
