Painting the RV’s interior in one color is a great idea that delivers impressive results. It doesn’t matter if you apply the same paint on the cabinets or the walls. It will still make your RV incredible, giving it a premium and homely feel like these examples.

Undoubtedly, the dark green interior has given this RV a simple yet appealing look. The color blends perfectly with the white ceiling, the stool adjacent to the wall, and the mirror, which also acts as an accessory.

Wall Paper and Paint

A combination of paint and wallpaper can magically transform your motorhome’s interior, making it visually appealing and unique. I have also witnessed how painted wallpapers make the RV interiors stylish. Let’s check out some examples of this painting idea.

The amazing RV transformation was created by Liz Kamarul (@liz_kamarul), a New Orleans interior stylist. She hand-painted the wallpaper flamingoes in her camper’s wallpaper to create a distinctive pattern, which adds classy beauty.

If you’re looking for a truly unique aesthetic, don’t be afraid to experiment with patterns and textures. Stenciled designs, geometric shapes, or even a playful mural can add character and visual interest to your RV walls. Remember, your RV is your home on wheels, so make it reflect your personal style!

I applaud the efforts of Emily and her family members in transforming this camper van using wallpaper and paint. In the kitchen pictured above, she painted bright teal colors on the cabinets and complimented them with black, bold, and white floral wallpaper. This mix of colors, wallpaper, and wooden floors gives this RV a rich look.

I love the idea of painting my motorhome with a cultural theme in mind. Interior décor rooted in culture is always intriguing and beautiful. There is nearly zero chance that someone else would’ve thought of your idea. Let’s take a look at these examples.

RV Interiors with Bold Accent Colors

Another way to add pomp and color is to paint the RV interior with an accent color on either one wall and some cabinets and the rest with trim-white. Having one or two accent walls will make your RV colorful and bright. Let’s look at some examples.

Don’t shy away from bold accents! A pop of color on a backsplash, accent wall, or even just a throw pillow can inject personality and vibrancy into your RV interior. Think jewel tones like emerald green, sapphire blue, or burnt orange for a touch of adventure. Sarah Tucker, Interior Designer specializing in small spaces

RVs with Black Interiors

Black never disappoints when it comes to bringing out the elegance of an RV’s interior. The richness of this color makes it my default choice whenever I think of giving my recreational vehicle a worthwhile makeover. If you are confused about what color suits your RV, I advise you to always go for a black interior.

3 Types of Paint For an RV Interior And Why You Need the Primer

Before commencing the adventure of repainting your RV, seeking more info about the available paint options is essential. This will help in guiding your purchase. In this section, I discuss three main RV paints that are suitable for your RV renovation project.

1. Latex Paints AT

This paint is budget-friendly, easy to maintain, and clean after drying. However, this paint will require more prep and a high-quality coat to enhance its durability before applying it. Additionally, it can also peel. Some of the best brands are RECOLOR, Contego, and Glidden, renowned for their durability

2. Oil-Based Paints

Most RVers love this paint due to its longevity. During painting, it doesn’t leave brush strokes and is easier to clean once applied. It also needs a few coats to make your RV walls appealing compared to latex paints. The best brands offering beautiful and durable coats include Trade Paints, NEROLAC, and Rust-Oleum.

Important! However, the oil-based paints come with a very strong odor. So, you will need to wear a mask and open the RV windows and doors while painting.

3. Water-Based Paints

This paint is ideal for most users as it needs minimal prep work before use. However, it is costlier than oil-based paint, and its durability is low. Brands like Rust-Oleum, Metallic Paint Collection, and Ecotex offer the best quality as they offer better results with a few coats.

Note: Besides the paint, using the right primer to actualize your RV interior paint ideas is equally important as it affects the quality and durability of the results. So, without the right primer, the paint won’t stick on the interior walls.

Tips for Picking Your RV Paint Color Scheme

How can you create a distinctive color combination for your RV interior painting idea?

  1. Consider pieces of décor with your favorite colors, such as a painting, throw pillows and rugs. This will guide you in picking the best color.
  2. Google can also provide a variety of color ideas for your RV painting project. All you need to do is search and see the painting jobs of other people.
  3. Use this free tool to get matching colors that appeal to your tastes from images online.
When choosing colors for your RV, consider the size and layout. Light and airy shades like sky blue, pale sage green, or creamy white can open up the space and make it feel bigger, while darker accents can add depth and definition.Ashley Jenks, Blogger at The Wandering Weekends
