What I Learned While Remodeling My Home

Me and my wife bought a fixer-upper a few years ago with every intention on converting it into our dream home. The problem was, we were not nearly as skilled in home construction and remodeling as we thought we were. After a few failed projects, we needed to really take a step back and reevaluate our plan. We knew there was no money in the budget to hire a contractor to do everything, so there were some skills we were going to have to learn on our own. After several months of actively seeking out the information we needed to get the job done, we were finally able to successfully remodel the kitchen in our new house. While the house is still a work in progress, we are successfully accomplishing new tasks every day. In this blog, I hope to bring together all of the information we learned along the way.

Styles to Consider When Renovating Your Airstream

An airstream renovation may include mechanical repairs and adding systems such as solar power, but it also includes designing and styling the living spaces inside. Here are some styles you can garner inspiration from when planning the interior of your renovated airstream.

Minimalist

Minimalistic decor is highly popular among modern folk who don't want a cluttered space cluttering up their mind. And minimalism can be especially useful in an airstream since its sleek styling can help make the most of a cozy interior space. Often, a minimalistic style will include almost no wall decorations, which can be ideal if you're decorating a small space. In addition, minimalism can often use mostly or only neutral colors.

Mid-century modern

Inspired by the design and style trends of the middle of the 20th century, a mid-century modern look can be especially fitting if you're renovating an older airstream. You can reimagine how the airstream would have looked if outfitted with top-of-the-line decor back when it was brand new. Some examples of iconic decor components you can incorporate for this style include bright solid colors such as orange, furniture with tapered legs or peg legs, and geometric shapes.

Steampunk

While it's a more niche style, steampunk decor can provide a fascinating and unique way to furnish your airstream. You can let your wild side reign since the airstream is less a main living space and more a vacation getaway. Leather, old maps, antique Victorian styled pieces, and clockwork can all help to give a steampunk appearance. Don't forget to add a touch of luxury with decor such as sepia-toned photos, leather combined with lace, and tufted leather furniture.

Cottage chic

Cottage-style or cottage chic style can help the interior of your airstream look both welcoming and airy. The typical colors used, such as pastel pale colors and neutrals, help to keep the space light and bright. And an emphasis on textures such as distressed wood or over-stuffed furniture surfaces can help you to achieve this look without adding clutter to your space.

These are just a few decor styles to choose from as you brainstorm and plan your airstream renovation. If you're looking to make the interior look larger, a minimalistic or cottage chic look might suit you well, whereas a steampunk look with a darker color scheme could help you turn the airstream into a cozy, luxurious living space.

Of course, the interior decor style is just one thing to think about when renovating your airstream. Contact a local airstream renovation company to learn more about the options and renovation possibilities.
