Finding a Good Pop-Up
You can't do a good pop-up renovation without a decent pop-up! Renovating should only be done on a used pop-up, or one that you don't care about having a warranty on. Most of these projects will definitely void manufacturer's and extended warranties on new pop-ups, so keep that in mind! We always have used pop-ups coming in here at Gillette's Interstate RV, so be sure to check in often if you're in the market for a fantastic used model! If you find an older one, don't let the age of it deter you from considering it. We have had some pop-up models as old as 1996 that have been in nearly pristine condition! Used pop-ups are kind of like a diamond in the rough, so keep your eyes peeled for roadside sales, or for the best deals and the highest quality, just keep checking in-store or at gillettesintertaterv.com!
Fabrics—The Easiest Pop-Up Makeover
Pop-ups that are just 5-10 years old can look super dated, and don't even get me started on the crazy-hideous styles you find in pop-ups from the 90s (sorry to all those who love 90s pop-ups)! The easiest way to transform your pop-up's interior is to redo all the fabric surfaces! Head down to your local craft or fabric store and start your search in the clearance section! Find something that fits your family's style, or pick a certain theme or color scheme to decorate around. If you find a fabric outside of the clearance section, wait until a sale comes up, or keep your eyes peeled for coupons! The beauty is that you can choose literally whatever pattern you like to make your pop-up totally unique to your style! Take that, uninspired RV interior designers!
Give Your Cabinets New Life With a Paint Job
Though it's more of an undertaking, a new paint job can take those cabinets from "90s hot mess" to "modern Pinterest dream" without too much work. Choose a paint color that strikes your fancy. It seems that the trend right now is lighter-colored cabinets, from stark white to a pleasant eggshell color. The lighter colors seem to blend nicely with colorful linens and can adapt to new renovations in the future.
Make It Your Own With Unique Decor
Another fun component to renovating your pop-up is finding awesome coordinating decor to take your camper to the next level! I can't be the only one here who gets an absolute thrill from finding the perfect piece of decor that fits a theme! Any excuse to visit the craft store/home decor store/secondhand store, am I right? Hit up places like TJ Maxx, Home Goods, Marshall's, Hobby Lobby, and even your local Goodwill for awesome and unique decor and to save money! Or if you're like me, troll around Amazon and other online retailers to score some good deals! It'll be easy to go over your renovation budget by splurging on decor, but have some self restraint and hunt around for the best possible deals!
