Across the UK, its estimated that more than 51 million nights* are spent in caravans each year. Whether your caravan, motor home or canal boat provides a leisurely ‘home from home’ during the warmer, summer months or is, in fact, your dream ‘forever home’ to enjoy during your hard-earned retirement, there has never been a simpler time to upscale your space. With more of us now choosing to reside in smaller spaces, these transitional areas must work hard to fulfil our differing needs. Wouldn’t it be great if function could sit alongside style? The designers at TREND Transformations have been helping customers turn that wish into reality.

Joan and Jim Thames, who now live permanently on their beloved canal boat, ‘Two Jays’, recently renovated their small galley kitchen, after finding the exterior of their home far outweighed the interior, “We bought our canal boat from new five years ago, after selling our family home. Everything was built to our exact specifications because, as were planning on living on it full time, we knew the space needed to be functional. When it came to designing the galley, I made the mistake of assuming ‘functional’ meant boring – we ended up with a drab, tired kitchen. So, I worked with TREND Transformations who came up with a stunning option for our kitchen worktops.”

TREND Transformations innovative ‘top that fits on top’ replacement worktops are available in a range of finishes, including quartz, granite and recycled materials. The TREND Transformations design team can talk you through design options to suit all spaces and, in most cases, can be fitted in a matter of hours.

“Canal boats are famously awkward to decorate, which is why I think so many boat owners don’t bother, but the team at TREND Transformations knew exactly how to make the most of the space. I couldn’t fault the professionalism of the fitter; he was in and out within a few hours, leaving no mess behind him. Now, the space is just as beautiful as the rest of our home,” said Joan.

Only 2.2 square metres of TREND Transformations Bianco Modena was needed to create this stylish look and from initial enquiry to installation, the entire process took only a few weeks to complete.

It isn’t just canal boats which can benefit from an injection of quality, stylish design in a smaller space. With room so limited, it’s crucial that all workspace is utilised. If your motorhome or caravan is well used during the warmer months, renovation plans could be completed before the end of next spring, leaving you with a full summer season to enjoy your updated kitchen or bathroom space. TREND Transformations’ no obligation design consultations can provide you with numerous options for your small space and, with limited upheaval and demolition involved, work can be completed around those all-important family breaks.
