Your RV dining booth is often a central design feature in your RV.
Like having a dining booth in your camper or motorhome, but don’t love the way it looks? Let these photos inspire you to give your eating space a facelift.
1. Reupholster or Cover Your RV Dining Booth Cushions
Recovering your cushions is an easy way to brighten your dining space and make it feel new.
All white cabinets can give a bright, clean look to your RV, letting you play with fun colors on your fabrics.
For help with re-covering cushions, check out this article where you’ll find links to sewing patterns as well as no-sew cushion cover tutorials!
Reupholstering cushions may sound complex or expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. These RV owners used canvas painter’s drop clothes to refresh the look of their RV dinette cushions:
2. Remove the cushions altogether!
The lack of cushions may make your dinette a little less comfortable, but it’s also an easy way to keep your dining room looking fresh. Fabric patterns are an easy way to date an RV and laundering them could be a hassle. By eliminating the cushions altogether, you have one less piece of laundry.
We recommend add throw pillows for extra comfort and style!
- Premium Fabric: Extra long faux fur creates elegant look, reversible design offers you extra softness, is ideal for your couch, sofa, bed, home, office chair and car.
3. Update or Replace the Dining Table
Giving your tabletop a makeover is an easy way to update your dining room!
I love the vintage table in this tiny trailer!
This is the original table with a few cosmetic upgrades to keep it looking good over fifty years later, but you don’t have to keep your original table.
Replacing your table is a great way to makeover your dining booth, but it might require a few power tools. You’ll need to entirely remove your old table, which may be bolted to the ground and/or the wall. Then you’ll need to find a table that fits!
The biggest potential con to this makeover idea is that RV tables are generally custom-fit for the RV booth and will make into a bed. Like this massive Airstream dining booth that turns into a king-sized bed:
If you want to use your dinette as a sleeping space, I wouldn’t recommend this swap.
But if you don’t need the extra bed, a pretty table top goes a long way!
4. Remove the backs of your dinette booth.
If you want to keep your dining booth, but make your space feel more open, remove the backs for bench seating.
This makeover will definitely take a few power tools and some DIY skills, but the result is a more spacious living and dining room.
By keeping the bottom of your booth but removing the top, you don’t lose any storage while still creating the desired open floor plan.
Don’t forget to add some throw pillows for comfort and color!

5. Turn your booth into a half-booth.
One of the most popular RV renovations is to completely remove the dinette booth. But these renovators decided to keep half.
Keeping half of your booth ensures you keep much-needed storage. (Not to mention it cuts your renovation work in half!) Don’t worry—it’s not hard to remove your booth! Check it out:
Adding chairs or a bench to other side of the table is an easy way to add to your RV’s style. I personally love the sleek, refined look of this half dinette:
The extra tall ottomans double as seating and storage too.
