A home speaks volumes about the owner. Nothing is more satisfying than having a beautiful house, yet some people have no idea how to make it truly dazzling. It’s sad when you look at your neighbor’s home and wish it was yours. The good news is most of the things you love are simple do-it-yourself projects, except for a few accessories that you can easily purchase.
So do this, spare some dollars, and add these fantastic details to your little paradise.
Be a cut above your entire neighborhood!
Shades are Great Home Accessories
There are many different types of shades available. We are fond of traditional fabric and cellular shades that have advanced technology. These shades are motorized, have modified opacity, and can be styled as top-down or bottom-up.
However, the one you choose for your home depends on your needs. If you are after privacy, go for blackout shades. If you want to save some energy, cellular and blackout shade accessories are great for that too!
The secret to all stylish living rooms is the art on the wall; think of a six-piece of canvas wall art arranged to tell a story of a beautiful sunset.
Or, a grouping of your family members right opposite your living room entrance. Nothing makes a house feel more like a home than this!
A Wired/Wireless Doorbell
Get yourself one of these super-popular doorbells and always know who’s at the door.
Most people choose between Skybell vs. ring video doorbells. These doorbells allow the homeowner to keep track of all activity going in and near the door of the home. You can monitor everything from a distance and even receive live monitoring from some security companies.
So whether you’re treating yourself to a spa day, or going shopping out of town, you don’t need to worry about the security of your home.
Doorbells like these often feature:
- A sleek design
- Motion sensors
- Customizable tunes
- Extended operating range
- Night vision
- Two-way audio
- Different power options
Black And White Accessories
When asked to name two of the cleanest and dramatic colors, black and white always come to mind. Arrange white vases, candle holders, bowls, shells, and treasure boxes against a black background, or the opposite (in black) against a white background.
It’s a classic color scheme you can’t go wrong with!
Let’s face it—small children and pets spend most of their time on the floor. You wouldn’t want them to pick up germs from dirty old rugs, so replace them with some nice new ones. If you don’t have any, it’s time to get some!
For a home with children or pets, I’d stay away from light-colored rugs as they can stain easily. This is just a suggestion, though; the color of your rugs is your own choice and must go hand in hand with the rest of your decor.
Flowers are simple, but they bring a sense of life and nature to your interior.
Are you a book lover? Right on the shelf where you display your favorite books, place a vase of real or faux flowers.
They are the perfect accessory to style any bookcase or shelf!
