If the cabinetry in your RV is real wood, you could strip it and stain it a lighter color. It might be quicker, however, to paint it (with the proper prepartaion, of course). The walls can also be repapered or painted.

As for the rug (I assume you're talking about carpet), it can be changed, although that might be an expensive proposition not to mention a lot of work. How about some throw rugs?

Yes I meant carpet.I was thinking of some combo of a light color Pergo and carpet.It is tuff to decide between tile flooring to the entry door and carpet where the passenger seat the turns around to seat for a chair to watch TV.I am thinking I want to protect the rest of the flooring from the normal RV park stuff that gets tracked into a RV and wanting to have plush living space.Here is the floor plan for my RV.



As you are looking at the floor plan to the right is the bed space where I was thinking I wanted carpet that I would sink up to my ankles,in the bathroom in the rear tile flooring,by the entry on the side tile and Pergo between the entry and carpet by the bed.LOl-when I say all that sure seems kind of busy doesn't it??.I can't decide how to make all that transision look sharp.Sure wish somehow I could get someone here lay it out with photoshop to get a idea what is would look like.

We have just replaced the fabric sofa and chairs and put down new lino in the kitchen area and new carpet up front - it's really transformed the motorhome. Maybe the dark interior would look better if you had more modern coloured upholstery and carpet/tiles and window treatments. We have had both a dark interior and a light oak in our two motorhomes and do like the darker wood and the lighter flooring and upholstry do look good with it. Go for a good quality nylon carpet if you can as they are easy to keep clean and it you have some over have some rugs overlocked.

Good luck.
