“There’s no place like home” Let’s start from there. Indeed, there’s no other place like home. There are no comfortable places as comfortable as our home. At home, we feel safe. It’s our comfort zone. In other words, our home is connected to us. And it’s where we spend most of our time.
Of course, we want a home that will give us the rest we need after working all day. But who wants a messy and unorganized home? Achieving the inner peace that we all deserve is impossible with a messy home. That’s why tidying up, and a little bit of organizing and styling is what you need.
In styling and organizing your home, choosing the best accessories plays a big role in providing the best outcome. In this article, we will show you the best accessories that will blend well with the accent of your styling and your way of organizing things.
Things to Consider
First off, there are things that you need to consider when choosing the best accessories for your home. Take a look at the following:
1. Size Limit
Ask yourself first, “will this accessory perfectly fit in my home?” In this case, only buy accessories that will not take up too much of your space. Remember, there are other accessories or designs that you will use. If you have a gigantic home then go for huge accessories. But if you think your home is not that huge then you might want to consider size limits, it’s very important.
When you just bought a house, the first thing you need to do is budget. Don’t go overboard. Only buy accessories that you really need. It’s ok to fancy them but restrain yourself from spending too much. But if you have a thick wallet then please yourself. But if you think a specific item is too much for your budget, wait a little longer until you are able enough to buy your favorite items.
3. Choose Meaningful Items
When you choose an item, make sure it has a meaning or make sure that it will manifest deep values that you will carry until you age. Hanging a frame with no value or meaning at all is futile. I mean, what’s the point though? Sure, it does add to the beauty of your home, but valuable things are more important.
4. Quality over Quantity
It’s true “the more the merrier” but do you really need that many items? High-quality items are more important as they stay longer.
Know your color combination. Items with blast color will eventually turn out messy. If possible, go for one color or choose a “family color”. If your walls have a touch of grey then buy a shelf or frames with a touch of grey color as well.
Now that we’re done with the considerations, let’s proceed in finding the best accessories to style and organize your home.
1. Doormats and Rugs
Do you know what’s expensive? Flooring and floor maintenance. Not only will it make your plain floors look good, but rugs and doormats will provide protection as they can reduce the instances of slipping especially in hazardous conditions like ice and snow. Rugs also warm up the room so consider buying some.
2. Hanging Decors for Walls
Spice up your walls a little by hanging some accessories such as a personalized frame or your own canvas, tapestry, or blanket. There are so many to choose from.
Not only do they organize your belongings but they also addss to the beauty of your home. If you look at it from a different perspective, shelves such as hanging or floating shelves are not just decorative but very useful, especially when minding the space of your home.
Baskets are flexible. You can use baskets as decoration by hanging them on your wall and you can also use them in organizing your clothes or other things. Baskets help you in tidying up your room.
5. Magazines and Books
A classic way of styling your home is by adding a shelf for your favorite books and magazine.
6. Pillows and Cushions
If you own a sofa, you want to decorate it by adding some pillows and cushions.
7. Flower vase
You can put a flower vase in every corner of your home. That’s the beauty of flower vases. What more if you use real flowers? It will surely beautify your home and not only that, your home will look and feel fresh.
Here’s the catch. When choosing accessories to style and organize your home, ask for help. You can hire a decorator; they know what they are doing. It’s a bit expensive, but it’s a good investment especially if you don’t know how to work your ideas. Just tell them what you like and you’re done.
