Accessories are an excellent way to add more style to your home especially as you are preparing to sell it. We’ve gathered a few home style accessories that make it easy to elevate your home’s overall look. Adding these accessories can instantly make your home more welcoming and appealing to potential buyers.

Throw Pillows and Blankets

Throw pillows and blankets are the perfect accessories to place on your furniture, especially in the living room. Place a few throw pillows on your sofa and add a throw blanket. You can place throw pillows on some of your chairs, too. They can even elevate bedrooms when you place rows of them on the beds. You can find a great selection of throw pillows online at Magnolia Market or Pottery Barn.

Throw pillows and blankets will make the room look cozy and inviting. It makes it easier for potential buyers to visualize themselves relaxing in the space. It’s a quick way to add visual interest and make the room appear more stylish.

Books

Books are another easy accessory that adds more style and character to your home. It’s likely you already have a few books you can use. If not, it’s easy to find inexpensive ones at thrift stores. They come in many colors and sizes. To make them really fit into your space, choose books with spines and covers in colors that coordinate with your decor. 

Books are also wonderful additions to vignettes. You can add them to a vignette on a console table in the entryway or on a coffee table. One way to add them to a vignette is by stacking them and placing something on top like a knick-knack or vase of flowers. You can also use books to create a statement on your coffee table. Fashion and decor related books are perfect for this. Other ways to style books on your coffee table is by creating a grid or placing a few on a decorative tray.

When styling books on bookshelves, create a nice display by mixing vertical and horizontal stacks of books. In the bedrooms, style books on the bedside tables. You may even consider placing a cookbook in the kitchen. Anything to make the home feel lived in is a smart idea.

Candles

Candles can help create the right ambiance in your home. They make a home feel warmer and more inviting. Not only can they set the right mood, but they can also make your home smell great. When you’re selling your home, you want to make sure it’s free of any odors. The wrong odor can be distracting and make potential buyers question the maintenance of your home. 

When choosing a scent, stick to something more subtle like linen or vanilla. Make sure to test the candles before showing your home. This way you can see how far the scents travel and place them accordingly.

Faux Plants

Plants are always a good idea. They can make any space feel more lively. Faux plants are preferred for staging because they are easier to care for. You won’t have to worry about whether or not somebody is allergic. Another benefit is that they can be reused.

In the main areas of your home, you may want to add floor plants. They are perfect for filling empty corners or adding height to a space. For bathrooms, tall and slender plants work best. When choosing a plant for the lanai, a low and full centerpiece would be ideal for the outdoor table. A succulent bowl is an excellent option. Another faux plant we love adding when staging homes are faux orchids. They are timeless and classy. We love that they don’t compete with home features and allow them to shine.
