Choosing The Right Accessories For Your Home

By on April 10, 2013

For a homeowner, having a home that looks great is a priority. The good news is that there are numerous ways in which you can achieve a great looking home without eating yourself out of house and home in the process – pun intended. Below are tips on how to select the right home accessories to get your house looking like a dream home.


Rule Of Thumb

The rule of thumb for choosing the right home accessories is getting furniture, appliances and furnishings that make you happy. As such, if you like it, buy it. If what you pick doesn’t quite fit in the place that you intended it for, then you should place the item somewhere else. Experiment with various areas in the home as an ideal location for placing a particular piece of home décor. You may be surprised to find that the area rug you chose for your bedroom actually does make a statement and gives your dining room that final touch it was missing to complete its look.

Adding Value

A good way to enhance the value of your home is by decorating it with home accessories such as candles, candle holders, wall hangings and sculptures. To achieve this, you will need to select these accessories in the right sizes, designs, colours, and shapes, as well as know exactly where to place them so as to make them stand out in your home. Curtains, draperies, bed-covers and duvets should similarly be selected in the right colours and prints in order to further enhance the overall look of the room.

Before you purchase home accessories such as sculptures, take into account the colours in your existing décor. Will it be a great match? If yes, then go for it. The texture and size of the sculpture should compliment your other décor, even while being the main attraction in the area that you have positioned it. If you have young children in the home, it may be wise to avoid glass home accessories such as sculptures as these may break or be damaged easily during rough play. Go for safer and more durable options such as wood and stone for your sculptures. How you distribute and display the accessories around the home is also important. Avoid overcrowding décor items in one area as you will end up with a dull-looking room.

Your safest bet when selecting the right accessories for homes is to go for those items that will complement your existing décor style or theme. If your home has a shabby chic feel to it, invest in older looking items to complete your look. On the other hand, homeowners with a contemporary looking theme to their house would be better off with modern stylish art deco home accessories for their living spaces.
