Not loving the look of your RV’s fridge? Try one of these ideas for a fresh look.
If the front of your refrigerator is made of wood, you can paint it just like you might paint wood cabinets.
Although her fridge was a more modern style, RV owner Debi didn’t like how the stainless steel constantly showed fingerprints, so she added some decorative decals to disguise the fingerprints. You can find the dandelion decal she used here.
3. Removable peel-and-stick paper
The great thing about this option is that it can be temporary.
Metallic contact paper was used on this RV fridge to create the look of stainless steel.
This RV owner used blue and white chevron contact paper on the front of the fridge.
Peel-and-stick wallpaper was used on this fridge.
Another RV owner used contact paper to give her fridge and cabinet panels a matching look.
For a removable and less messy alternative, you can use peel-and-stick vinyl chalkboard paper.
Another option is to just purchase a magnetic chalkboard and hang it on the front of your refrigerator.
5. Dry erase board
Similar to the idea above, but the white look might be preferable for some decor, and the material can be purchased quite cheaply. In this video, the Fummins Family demonstrates the simple process.
6. Magnetic panels
Not only is this refrigerator now magnetic, it also doubles as a dry erase board. You can see step-by-step photos detailing how the wood grain panel was replaced with steel here.
Magnetic steel inserts can be spray painted whatever color you like!
7. Factory made replacement panels
You can also purchase replacement refrigerator panels that are designed to fit your exact refrigerator model, like the owner of this RV did.
These shiny black panels can be written on using neon dry-erase markers.
