It’s about that time. It’s the part of the year when all your new year resolutions start to fizzle out – old habits die hard. I get it, and it’s okay! Don’t feel bad. It happens to the best of us. How about a solution to lift the spirits? Instead of a “new year, new me” mantra, let’s scream out “new year, new RV” instead.
I’m not talking about purchasing a brand new RV, although that’s always an option if you’re in the market for one. There are ways to make your existing RV feel brand new – starting with furniture. Here are a few new RV furniture pieces that will revive an old RV.
Flip-Top Sofa Table
When it comes to the RV lifestyle, nothing speaks the language more than a piece of furniture that’s versatile. With the flip-top sofa table, you not only get something versatile, but you get a piece of furniture that’s perfect for dining, crafts, games, laptops, and more. Two flip-up side panels give you extra space when you need it and fold down, out of the way, when you don’t. The best part? The extended base is designed to slip under your sofa or chair, making it perfect for tight spaces.
Quilted Reversible Furniture Cover Protector
It’s not a new piece of furniture, no, but it does have the power of making your furniture feel like it’s new. Perfect for those times when a new sofa, loveseat, or chair isn’t in the budget, the quilted reversible furniture cover protector breathes new life into your existing furniture. Guarding against spills, stains, and pets that shed, this cover is reversible and covers your furniture from top to bottom. It’s also machine washable! Stretch a few more years out of your current furniture and save up for an extensive renovation down the road.
Kathy Ireland Easy Out Sofa
If a new sofa is in the budget, let me introduce you to the Kathy Ireland Easy Out Sofa. It’s a space-saving solution for any room. Have a surprise guest that needs to stay the night? No worries. This sleeper sofa transitions quickly and conveniently by removing the back cushions and expanding the sofa into a bed. It’s so easy, you can do it with one hand. Designed to match any décor-style, you’ll fall in love with its clean lines and versatility – and the fact it will take your RV from old to new in an instant.
Kathy Ireland Euro Recliner
Sofas aren’t the only furniture that can transform a space from dated to current. Try out the Kathy Ireland Euro Recliner. Designed to allow easy configuration within your RV without sacrificing comfort or style. Reclining backrest? Check. Pop-out footrest? Check. Swivel motion? Padded headrest and armrests? Contoured backrest? Check. Check. Check. It’s the perfect addition to any RV. Warning though, it has been known to start fights among friends and family as it’s the one seat everyone wants to sit in. Call dibs immediately.
Kathy Ireland Ottoman
If you get the sofa and the recliner, it only makes sense that you round out the collection with the Kathy Ireland Ottoman too. Designed with the same timeless look as the other pieces, this ottoman marries style and storage to create the ideal piece of furniture to last happily ever after. Perfect for supporting your feet while watching television or relaxing, it’s also convenient for storing extra pillows or blankets, games, or other accessories out of sight. Long-lasting construction. Easy-to-clean fabric. What’s not to like?
Enchanted Home Pet 3-Piece Ottoman Set
Sometimes less is more, but sometimes more is more. If one ottoman just doesn’t do it for you, try three. The Enchanted Home Pet 3-Piece Ottoman Set includes a large bench and two smaller ottomans. All three come with lids that lift off, revealing much-needed storage inside. They provide additional storage, but they can be used as additional seating. If you decide three is simply too many to have out at once, the two smaller ottomans can be stored inside the larger bench. They’re the perfect update to make an old RV feel like new again.
This dinette/desk combination is a gamechanger for those who work while on the road. Designed to fit into most existing RV dining booths by simply replacing the table, it also works for RVs with stand-alone tables and chairs. This workstation remedies the problem of where to use your computer and where to store it when you’re not using it. With the touch of a button, the center portion of the table rises to reveal your monitor for working, then lowers again when you’re done to function as any standard table does. You no longer have to disconnect and pack away components because they’re securely mounted and out of the way for travel. It’s the best of both worlds!
Resistance Chair Exercise Station
Not all new year resolutions have to fade. If you’re still committed to becoming a better you, and we all should be focused on that, to be honest, then the Resistance Chair Exercise Station is an excellent addition to your RV. Not a piece of furniture to leave out, but not to worry. It folds up easily for storage and travel, so you can tuck it away while on the road then pull it out again once you’ve reached your destination. It literally sets up and tears down in seconds. There’s no reason exercise and health can’t be a new addition to your RV travels this year. Try out hundreds of exercises from the comfort of a sturdy, camp-friendly chair. Who needs a gym anyway?
Whether you’re sticking to your resolutions this year or not, I think we should all make “new year, new RV” a thing. When your space feels new, you feel new. SO, refresh the areas of your RV that feel old or outdated and watch your outlook change as well.
