Efficient and Beautiful RV Bathrooms

Living in an RV is very small.  Everything is smaller, from the kitchen oven to the bed.  The bathroom is one of the places where you notice the lack of space the most.  There are several things that you can do to maximize the available space, while still adding some beauty and upgraded fixtures to your motorhome.  The first thing that you need to think about is exactly what you would change about your RV bathroom if you could.

Most people would add a solid door as the very first improvement.  The bathroom and bedroom should have a real door with a lock, especially if you are traveling with a full family.  You can visit an RV supply company to look at all of the available doors for motorhomes and ask a sales agent to help you choose one that will fit in your particular RV model.  As with any products, there are base models that are functional and inexpensive.  You can also choose a more elaborately decorated door, though you might need to prepare to spend a bit more money.

A separate vanity is also an important consideration.  If you and your family have more than one bathroom in your home, then you are probably not familiar with the frustration of sharing only one.  By adding a separate sink and vanity in another part of the RV, you might cut down on many of the arguments that can take place on the road.  RV supplies warehouses will have the necessary equipment for your addition, including sinks, bathroom faucets, and mirrors.  Once you have the new vanity installed, the bathroom will already seem much larger, because no one has to share it.

Most RV bathrooms have doors on the showers.  You might consider replacing the shower door with a curtain.  The door can seriously hamper movement, especially if the shower is very small.  By replacing the shower faucet, you may be able to cut down on the spray, as well, which will keep your floors dry and safe.  RV parts are not hard to find, if you know where to look.  Your local RV parts and accessories store will be able to supply your every need. 

Any furniture that you add to your bathroom should be stable, for the sake of safety.  Be sure that any tables or cabinets that you add can be bolted to the floor so that they don’t move during transit.
