Tips to Make your Static Caravan Feel Like Home

4 July 2024 On the park

Are you an existing holiday home owner, or considering buying a static caravan? Read our tips to make your static caravan your own!

Caravan holiday homes typically come fully furnished, but it’s nice to put your own unique stamp on the property. Here we list some of our top tips to help you create a tranquil retreat that will feel like a home away from home.

Add photos and paintings

The first tip to make your static caravan feel like home is to add photos and paintings. Bring a copy of your favourite family photo to put on your bedside table, or consider framing your favourite Lake District view on the living room walls! Adding artwork is a simple and cost effective way to personalise the space.

Lamps and lighting

We suggest purchasing some lamps to create a cosy atmosphere within your holiday home – no one likes relaxing with the big light on! You can also enhance the ambience by replacing existing light bulbs with ones that emit warmer or cooler light, depending on your preference.

Soft furnishings and essentials

Don’t forget to add some soft furnishings and decorations to make your caravan holiday home feel like home! Pack your favourite cushions for the sofa or armchair, as well as blankets and throws to keep warm in winter. Consider purchasing towels, shower mats, toothbrush holders, toilet brushes, and shower shelves to personalise your static caravan. Make sure to stock up on kitchen utensils, cookware, glasses, and plates.

Having these items in your static caravan means you won’t have to worry about packing lots when you visit. Travel with peace of mind, knowing that all the essentials are ready and waiting for you.

Personalise your outside space

Many of our caravan holiday homes for sale come with a private verandah, where you can sit back and take in the views. There’s plenty of scope to make this area your own too – we recommend investing in quality furniture that stands up to being left outside.

Some of our existing owners have purchased outdoor dining sets, so they can dine alfresco or enjoy their morning coffee in the sunshine. Deckchairs or recliners are a great option too!

You can also add a splash of colour with hanging baskets or potted plants! We love nature here at Park Cliffe and encourage our holiday home owners to attract butterflies, birds and bees!

Decor pieces

Consider adding plants to bring some greenery into your space. If you’re not into high-maintenance options or are worried about plants dying while you’re away, artificial ones can be a great alternative. You can also personalise the space adding books, candles and new curtains. We recommend having a look at Pinterest for inspiration!

These tips and tricks will give your static caravan a unique touch that makes it feel like your own! If you’re interested in purchasing a holiday home in the Lake District, Park Cliffe offers both new and pre-owned options.
