It is the dream of most women to decorate their house to their liking and make it a home. Home decor accessories set the mood in a room and a house in general but they also add style and warmth when done properly.

It can also get very expensive to decorate your house if you don’t really know what to go for. This article will give you some tips on the do’s and don’ts when it comes to choosing home decor accessories which will give your house a great look without having to spend a fortune.

There are so many home decor accessories that are available that it can also be difficult to choose which ones are the most important ones which should take priority especially when you are on a limited budget. The list we have come up with below are the essential accessories that you will need at a minimum to improve the interior design of your house.

Vases – You can have a vase in the living room or drawing room. You can also put a vase in the garden to enhance its look. A good quality glass vase is recommended for the inside of the house and you can go for a terracotta vase for the garden. Glass vases give a sophisticated look to a room. It is a matter of personal choice whether you want to put artificial flowers or fresh ones in your vases. They can look just as good without flowers.

Pictures and Paintings – Drawings and paintings add a certain elegance to a room or space. The size of the drawing or painting you choose needs to match the size of the room it is for. In other words, you can have a small painting in a corridor of your house and have a larger painting in the living room. If you are very family oriented, get some family pictures taken, enlarge them and put those up on the walls in photo frames. They will add a really warm look to common spaces such as living rooms.

Curtains – Curtains for the sole purpose of keeping the light out of a room is now a thing of the past. Curtains give the room its character. The best curtains to go for are prairie curtains made of cotton. Also make sure that you choose curtains that are easy to maintain. This will save you money in the long run. It is also best to go to an actual store to choose your curtains so you can have a good look at the color instead of buying online. If you have tables in the room, make sure to buy matching table runners so that they enhance the whole theme of the room. Another great addition to the curtains would be to have contrasting cushions in the room. This will liven up the room a great deal.

Rugs – A good quality rug can be quite pricey but it is well worth the investment. As well as giving a warm and cosy look to a room, a rug tends to be the finest and most comfortable thing you can have beneath your feet. They are available in various sizes, patterns and colors these days so there is plenty to choose from. However, make sure that the color blends well with your furniture and other accessories in the room.

Decorative Mirrors – There are so many looks you can go for here. A jumbo gold framed mirror will fit well in a living room or dining room to give it that elegant look. If you wanted a completely different style for a particular room, get a mughal painting mirror in your dressing room for example and that will give it a traditional indian touch and make that room stand out from the rest of the house.

Lighting Fixtures – The type of lighting in a room is very important in setting the mood and atmosphere of that room. Choose appropriate light fittings for the different rooms of your house that fits in with the overall theme of that room and it will really enhance the look and feel of the room.

There are other home decor accessories that will greatly enhance the look and feel of your home such as decorative teapots, wall organizers, wall clocks, wall hangings, metal figurines, religious symbols and furnishings. However, we recommend focusing on the list above first and then when time and money allows, add other decorative accessories to your house.

There are so many home decorative boutiques and stores now open that have a wide range of accessories available. It is also an idea to check online stores for certain items because you might get it cheaper.

I hope that this article has been valuable in providing you with ideas with regards to decorating your house.
