Our Campervan Conversion Guide: Designing Your Interior

In part two of our campervan conversion series, we’ll cover the design and layout of your campervan’s interior. This aspect is the most important part of any conversion process, as it creates the van you’ll be living and travelling in for the foreseeable future. Read on to find out more.

What Are Your Priorities?

The most important factor to consider when designing the interior of your campervan conversion is your lifestyle. For example, if you’re living in a van then you’ll want lots of space and storage. Alternatively, if it’s just for weekends, maybe you prioritise comfort and luxury.

You need to look at this before any work begins to plan out where things will go. Before you get to the fun stuff, elements such as plumbing and circuitry will need to be mapped, which leads us onto our next step.

Layout Planning

your layout ahead of time regardless of whether you’re building it yourself, or with a contractor. Components such as:

  • Plumbing
  • Circuitry
  • Sink Placement
  • Lighting

All these need to be laid out ahead of time so you can run wiring and pipework to the appropriate places before it’s too late. Even aspects such as bed positioning and storage should be thought about so you can choose the best lighting positions for efficiency and aesthetic.

Ventilation & Campervan Conversion Insulation

Ventilation is an aspect of campervan conversion that is often overlooked. Condensation can cause health problems and mould issues. Therefore, it’s important to have air flow through your vehicle to ensure nothing stagnates or gets wet.

However, you also need to insulate a van to mitigate this and retain warmth. There’s a fine balance between ventilated and cold, and quality insulation techniques are at the heart of this balance. You’ll want to consider these aspects along with plumbing and electrical work before any major features are installed.

If you’re unsure of how to do this yourself, then get in touch with a professional campervan conversion expert to get the ball rolling.

Storage & Multipurpose Features

When working with limited space, one of the major issues is storage. Finding a balance between the two is integral. There’s no use in a comfortable, good looking interior if you have nowhere to store belongings.

Additionally, there’s no use having lots of storage and no room to move. This is where multipurpose features come in. Clever position of fold out beds, shelving, and tables can help utilise space for storage and movement without compromising on comfort.

Ultimately you’ll want to map this all out on paper or look for a premade design online. If you really want to make sure everything is perfect, then we advise consulting a campervan conversion specialist to help you make the very best of your van’s space.
