            A Campervan Makeover With Sharon

            Inspired by the vast landscapes on her doorstep, Sharon Snowden decided to channel her passion for adventure into a campervan kitchen makeover. With staycations becoming the new norm, finding a solution that offers flexible and fun trips is key. From creating a stylish space to functional pointers that will make life on the road simple, discover how Sharon planned a compact camper space with the help of Howdens and North Bound Campervans.

            Sharon sat down on the edge of the campervan door, with her fluffy white dog. Showing the interior and side of the campervan.

            About Sharon

            Sharon and her husband, Michael, have always been lovers of the great outdoors, so when their children fled the nest, they thought it would be the prime time for a new adventure. Accompanied by their dog, Luka, Sharon wanted to design a sociable space in her campervan that had ample storage and encompassed her love of copper features.

            "Going into a renovation with an open mind is key, as a layout might not work in the way you had originally planned. We changed the position of the sink and gas cooker to make the space streamlined and easy to navigate."

            Ceramic sink

            Sharon wanted to draw on her Irish roots by including a ceramic sink-bowl in her renovation, which North Bound Campervans made possible despite the heavy load. The traditional design sits right at home alongside shaker doors, while the deep bowl offers ample room for washing up.

            Copper handles

            After opting for a dark green scheme, Sharon added warm accents through the use of copper features. The trend-led cup handles bring the van right up-to-date and are practical, as the metal will wear well with use. The copper tone also adds a luxe touch for a lavish getaway space.

            Laminate counters

            Mirroring the natural landscapes that Sharon and her husband explore, the wood-effect laminate surfaces add an organic feature to the van. Combining the look of wood with the many benefits of this manmade material meant that Sharon's space was practical, hardwearing, and lightweight.

            Plinth lights

            Little touches of luxury complete a design, so Sharon wanted to include additional features, such as lighting, that would make her travels feel indulgent. These circular lights sit below cupboards and will add ambience to evenings spent relaxing, as well as valuable illumination.
