Heartland Gateway Kitchen Renovation

One of the best things, in my opinion, about renovating an RV is that it's a great opportunity to add some COLOR that you may be afraid to in your home. An RV is meant to be fun and cozy, and adding pops of color is a great way to do just that!

When renovating this rig, my clients asked for a navy kitchen. Navy can be really hard to pull off. There are really dark navys that almost pull black, and really violet navys that pull purple. We found the perfect navy color (linked below) and that was the jumping point for this amazing RV kitchen!


I started by taking all the appliances and doors out of the kitchen and prepping it for paint. I sanded all the cabinets, inside as well, with 80 grit sand paper and then cleaned EVERYTHING (walls, ceiling, cabinets) with a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water. Then I primed the entire kitchen (ceiling included) with STIX primer. This is my FAVORITE primer and sticks so well, as per it's name!! No chipping at all with this primer!


Then I painted the cabinet boxed with Benjamin Moore's New York State of Mind in Scuff X Satin finish. This is the perfect and most durable paint and works great for cabinets.

Next up was flooring. I have been using Shaw Matrix line in the last few renovation and I love this flooring so much. It's only 3.2mm thick (meaning it works great with slides and is lighter in weight than a thicker flooring) and is very easy to install. This flooring is in their style Dockside Hickory.

We installed all new stainless steel appliances and even got them a dishwasher! This dishwasher was hardwired into the existing outlet in the island. We fed the supply and drain lines right under the sink cabinet so they are discreet and tie right into the sink drain.

I installed my favorite laminate countertops from IKEA, which are modern and sleek, and easy to clean. I used pine to trim the slide, painted the sides and stained the top board to mimic a beam. I added new hardware and two island pendants to make the space look more residential.

Added a little decor, and this kitchen is totally transformed!!
