It’s a new year – time to give your home a whole new look? If you’re selling your home, or planning to, here are some great styling accessories for 2021 which may help you give your home a mini-makeover without breaking the bank.
And, now that we are ‘locked down’, you may have more time than usual to get new home accessories ordered online.
Home styling accessories can make even the most stale and tired rooms look new and on-trend again, so take a look at these top styling tips which won’t break the bank:
A large rug can transform a room, adding warmth and accentuating the room’s style. Rug trends in 2021 take a vintage turn. A simple flat pile with neutral tones echoing the room is on trend rather than thicker pile.
You don’t have to spend a fortune either; decide on a budget and stick to it.
Cushions are a really easy way to provide an instant update to a room whilst adding colour, texture and interest. Again, the trends point towards a simple style.
2021 has an altogether cleaner look for accessories.
The finishing touch for viewings, adding scent and a sense of homeliness. Make sure arrangements are in keeping with the overall style of the house and the room.
If in doubt, keep the colours pale and the style simple with a vintage, minimal or Scandi twist.
Toiletries for photos and viewings should be modern, elegant and the best you can find. Keeping them eco-friendly and high-end are great options. Similarly, small, independent brands which are local to you are a nice touch.
Remember, keep these for viewings only – hide them after each one to keep them in pristine condition.
New bedding for all rooms, especially the master bedroom, is a great way to show off each space to the best of its advantage. Environmentally-friendly fabrics with natural tones are growing in popularity – keep a look out for a brand with an eco-friendly ethos.
Don’t forget vintage accents either – another key trend for styling a bedroom.
Two cushions and a throw on a bed will add that elegant touch of style without over complication.
Buy some new ones and make sure no one uses them – they’re just for show! Pop them away with the toiletries after each viewing to keep them crisp and fresh.
White or neutral shades are best, a staple style for a bathroom. They should be in keeping with the bathroom itself to ensure it looks simple and clean.
Mirrors have a real Scandi feel to them in 2021, alongside other wall hangings like art. Mirrors especially add a feeling of coordination and harmony to a room, along with reflecting light, making rooms feel more spacious.
Keep things clean and clear
We’ve noticed that buyers prefer a clean palette of neutral tones. This gives them more opportunities to let their imaginations run wild with ideas for their new dream home.
Create an atmosphere to aspire to
The more you show the incredible lifestyle your home offers, the more prospective buyers see themselves living there – whether that’s done by leaving a large glass bowl full of vibrant fruit in the kitchen, an elegant vase of delightful flowers in the hallway or a delectable cake which might tempt them to stay a bit longer for another slice.
Some relaxing, ambient music playing in the background and a cosy room lit by the soft glow of a lamp in the corner also adds a feeling of wonder to a viewing.
Keep a critical eye
Remember to look at each room with an objective viewpoint; remove or replace accessories that don’t add to the aesthetic of the area.
First impressions are everything.
We also recommend staying up-to-date on constantly evolving home styling trends.
Take a look on Instagram or Pinterest for some fantastic ideas and latest trends. There are some great home improvement communities to be found on Facebook such as House Talk all offering fantastic recommendations, reviews and independent suppliers.
