RV Bedroom Makeover
Our cozy RV bedroom remodel complete with a wood plank accent wall and open shelving. See how we turned our small RV bedroom into a cozy oasis with lots of storage!
It’s reveal day!! I hope you’ve been enjoying all of our RV remodel reveals so far. Today we’re showing off our tiny, yet oh so cozy, bedroom reveal!
Note: all sources are listed at the bottom of the post!
To give you some perspective of how far this room has come, here’s what it looked like the day we purchased it:

DIY Wood Accent Wall
Alright, let’s talk about my favorite part of this bedroom first. Ever since we installed our first DIY wood plank accent wall in our old house, I’ve been addicted. So it only made sense to add one to the back wall in our RV bedroom remodel!
Instead of the classic horizontal planks, this time we went with a fun geometric design. (Don’t worry, a full step-by-step tutorial is coming! 😉 )
I love how the wood instantly makes the entire space feel cozy and warm.
We replaced the original wall sconces with vintage style brass sconces. The modern light fixtures add a pop of interest against the rustic wood wall.
DIY RV Bed Frame
Unlike most RVs, ours didn’t come with a built-in bed frame. Since our RV-Queen size mattress takes up the majority of the room, we built a DIY version of the classic RV bed frame that lifts up for easy access to storage space under the bed. (I plan to write a post detailing all of the storage solutions in the RV, so I won’t go into much more detail here.)
To keep the space feeling light and airy, Mike designed the bed frame to have an overhang which ended up being the perfect space for some extra baskets and bins.
These are great for things like shoes, extra sweatshirts, and linens.

Speaking of linens, I’m so excited about our RV bedding. Since our mattress touches all 3 walls of the pop-out, making the bed was nearly impossible. Until I discovered Beddy’s bedding.
It’s a 2-piece set: the bottom piece wraps around the bottom of the mattress like a fitted-sheet and zips to the top comforter/top sheet piece. Making the bed is as easy as zipping up the sides!
And I love that the zipper is hidden with a small fabric flap.
No more wrestling with the mattress corners trying to tuck the sheets in while sitting on top of the bed!
I picked the Oh-So-Boho style that is a light tan oatmeal color. I love that it’s still soft and neutral, but doesn’t get dirty as quickly as our old white linen duvet.
To dress up the bedding and add some extra coziness, I added a few throw pillows.
RV Bedroom Decor & Accessories
On the opposite side of the pop-out is where we mounted our TV.
Because of the location of the wall stud, the TV had to be off-center. At first I didn’t love that idea, but ultimately this was the only space for a TV.
The closet is to the right of our TV wall.
This is the only closet in the RV so I had to get creative when it came to fitting all of mine and Mike’s clothing in there. (More on that in a future post.)
Just below the closet doors are 2 drawers that we also use for clothing. We were able to utilize the space in between the bed frame and the closet for a laundry bin.
After taking precise measurements and searching on Amazon for the better part of a day, I was SO excited when I found this cute laundry tote. Not only did it fit perfectly in our space, but it has handles which makes it easy to carry across the lawn to our neighbors’ laundry room where we do all of our laundry.
It’s like this laundry bin was made for this RV bedroom remodel! 🙂
On the other side of the room, we added 2 small open shelves.
These are actually the same shelves that used to be above the coffee bar in our old house. I’m so glad I hung onto them!
They were a great spot for me to incorporate some cute decor and a little greenery.
Next to the shelves I used command strips to hang up my wide-brimmed hats.
I came up with this decorative way to store my hats in our old master bedroom and love how this wall decor idea has dual function!
There you have it! Our completed RV bedroom remodel!
There wasn’t a lot of room for extras in this space, but I’m happy with how we were able to make it our own with a fun accent wall and open shelving.
