Summer is on its way and with all the talk of a long hot summer now is the ideal time to spruce up your van before you hit the road and explore the great outdoors. Vanlife provides a unique opportunity to travel and connect with nature in so many different ways. But before you take off, you must ensure that your campervan is upgraded and ready for the journey. One of the most important aspects of your camper is the decor, whether it’s the walls, the surfaces or the floor - vinyl provides the perfect affordable DIY solution.
What’s a good product for your camper renovation?
There are lots of products out in the marketplace for renovating your campervan but one of the best (in our opinion) is Vinyl. Why? Because it’s known for its durability, longevity, and versatility, but more than that it is lightweight and flexible. Meaning that it won’t have an impact on the weight of the van and as your van moves so does the vinyl meaning that you can travel knowing that it will look the same as it did when you started your journey!
It's also simple to clean, moisture-resistant, and can handle wear and tear from the elements. Additionally, there's a range of options when it comes to colours, patterns, and designs, allowing you to choose a look that suits your style. Whether you prefer a classic and timeless look or a funky and modern vibe, vinyl can elevate your camper's interior design.
Upgrading your walls with vinyl
When it comes to upgrading your campervan walls, self adhesive vinyl tiles are an affordable and easy DIY option especially if you are just looking to add a new colour or freshen up the splash back. The tiles are also a great way to hide dents, scratches, or blemishes as the thickness of the tiles will cover these up seamlessly. At Vinyl Home we have a huge range of vinyl wall tiles from the classic Subway tiles to more modern designs, so there is bound to be one to suit your style. The tiles are lightweight and come with a self adhesive backing making it easy to install yourself - simply clean the surface and peel and stick! They also look very realistic, especially the tiles with the 3D gel, making it hard to tell the difference from real ceramic tiles. These wall tiles make great splash backs and are a really cost effective way to decorate your van.

Refreshing your surfaces with vinyl
Another area of your camper that's perfect for a bit of vinyl renovation are your surfaces, such as your kitchen counter or tabletops. These surfaces can look tired over time and bring the whole look of the van down. Adhesive vinyl wraps offer the perfect solution for countertops, drawer and cupboard surfaces and tabletops. It is easy to apply and it can add a new lease of life into a van without breaking the bank. They are also easy to clean and can add a layer of protection against scratches, stains, and heat.
Updating your floors with vinyl
Flooring in your campervan is something that often gets overlooked but our vinyl tiles are the perfect product. Not only are they easy to install with the adhesive glue on the back of each tile they can also be placed on top of existing tiles so you can avoid the whole mess of taking up the old flooring. The vinyl tiles are also easy to cut so you can get a professional look and cut around any furniture in your van. These also feel great underfoot and they are affordable. Take a look at our range.
Another fun idea to integrate vinyl into your camper renovation is to create a personalised mural or inscription with a simple cut-out vinyl adhesive sheet. Campervan-renovations are supposed to represent you, and using vinyl and your imagination can bring it to life.
The summer season is an excellent opportunity to hit the road and explore new places. And with a campervan renovation, your travel experience can be even more comfortable and convenient. Using vinyl for campervan renovations is a quick, easy, and budget-friendly way to upgrade your walls, surfaces, and enhance your overall decor.
