Affordable Home Accessories To Bring Your House New Life

There are thousands of things you can do to amp up your home interior game. You can try bold colors or get unique furniture. But if you’re looking for more specific ideas then you’ve come to the right place.

While most people are still trying to figure out how to save space, that doesn’t mean you can’t decorate in the process. 

These home accessories are affordable for anyone and are guaranteed to make a big difference in any room. All it takes is a little shopping and a few bucks and you’re good to go. The best part is that you can put your own spin on them. 

Chrome Decor

Chrome is just about as unique as you can get. It’s flashy enough to impress a crowd but if you tone the amount of chrome home accessories down then you won’t scare anyone off. A few choice pieces are all it takes. 

Although chrome sculptures and decorative accents can be expensive, that doesn’t mean you can’t find anything in your price range. A good place to start is with dishes. If you find the right ones, you can decorate any room. 

When searching for affordable chrome home accessories, make sure you don’t leave out the “home” part. If you do, you may end up with nothing but car accessories. 

Eccentric Coffee Tables

We’ve talked about eccentric coffee tables before. That’s because there’s hardly a better way to take your living room to the next level. You can find them just about anywhere, making them one of the go-to home accessories. 

Unlike most furniture, coffee tables come in all price ranges. You can find one worth more than your car or one that costs less than your microwave. Sometimes the unique coffee tables are actually cheaper than the standard ones. 

Try searching for thrift stores or online stores like Etsy for a truly unique coffee table. 

Bookshelves Without Backing

You can find a bookshelf in almost every home in the country. Some are knee-high while others reach the ceiling. Some hold solely books while others an array of home accessories. If you want to display your finds, there’s no better way. 

One thing you can do to make your bookshelf even cooler is to remove the backing or buy a bookshelf without a backing. Sometimes, with cheaper bookshelves, this is easier and more stable anyway.

Versatile Poufs

Bohemian, Moroccan, and Indian furniture and home accessories are trending this year. But no other accessory is more popular than the pouf. A pouf is generally used as seating, especially when sitting on the floor.

However, poufs have come a long way since their arrival in the U.S. First of all, you can get them in an array of colors and patterns. And of course, they are used for other things, such as tables as pictured here. 

If you want a traditional pouf with a spiritual aura, get one with a mandala. They are extremely affordable and adorable. 

Hemp Accessories

Hemp is another popular item being integrated into home accessories. The plant has been used for baskets and clothing for thousands of years. It’s affordable and great for DIY projects, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t refined. 

You can find elegant hemp furniture and home accessories as well. Although throw pillows are popular, your best bet for affordable though classy hemp decor is a chair. You can get them dyed or colored naturally. 

Blown-Glass Vases

Glass decor will always be trending. It’s tasteful and versatile, adding class to any room. Every room has glass in it since every room has, or should have at least one window. So there is always a place for glass in home accessories too. 

Blown glass isn’t just glass though. It’s a work of art that is thousands of years old. Watching someone blow glass is like watching an artist at work. If you can find somewhere that does custom blow glass, you’ve found a gem. 

The best part about glass is that it’s much more eco-friendly than plastic. Especially blown glass since it’s thinner and generally made with soda-lime glass. 

Solid Color Rooms

While mixing and matching colors can work in any room, a new trend suggests that solid color rooms can be even more impressive. Pick one color and find home accessories of slightly different shades. 

When it all comes together, it can be powerful, especially if you choose a bolder color rather than a neutral color. However, if you want to play it safe, white and beige are amazing choices that can work for anyone. 

Marble Accents

While everyone wants marble or granite countertops, not everyone can afford them. That’s why it’s important that smaller marble home accessories are available. Sometimes all it takes is a bathroom set to make one feel polished.

If you want your marble accessories to stand out, consider getting colored marble rather than black or white. You can get accessories in any color from pink to green to brown. Just pick your favorite and start shopping.

If you can’t afford marble at all, then you can still get marble-patterned home accessories that look just as good. Don’t worry about authenticity! If it looks good, it looks good.

Bold Throw Pillows

If you prefer neutral tones but want a splash of color, then get yourself some colorful throw pillows. There isn’t a better choice or a safer option. Pillows are affordable and come in any color that you can imagine. 

In fact, you can actually create custom pillows for a surprisingly low price. You can choose a pattern, mix and match, or have your own picture printed into them. Many people put their pets on their throw pillows.

If you want to make a small statement that means something to you, then make a set of custom pillows.

Varying Pottery And Porcelain

While single vases are nice, mix and matching unique vases is even better. Make sure you have clay, glass, and porcelain, all in shades and patterns that please you. For best results, choose some solid colors and some patterns. 

One of the best places to find vases like these are thrift stores. You can find an array of styles and mix them together all without paying the price of an official set. Or you can partner with friends, each taking one piece from each set. 

Origami Decor

Origami decor isn’t necessarily origami. It’s a style of home decor that looks like folded paper only it’s more durable and much more expensive. If you have refined, modern taste then it’s a perfect accent. 

What’s so great about origami home accessories is that you can use real origami for the cheapest decor you can find. There are hundreds of YouTube videos showing you how to make origami, all you need is paper.

Live Flowers

People have been putting live plants in their houses for centuries. But it seems that somewhere along the way, they stopped using wildflowers or those that don’t last long in exchange for green plants that last for years. 

While there’s nothing wrong with house plants, they can get boring when you choose the same ones every year. That’s why flowers are so unique, they need to be replaced regularly. 

If you’re lucky enough to live in the country, you can stop by a field and pick a bouquet that will surely bring life to your home. If you’re not but still can’t afford much, then stop by the florist and ask if they have anything they are going to throw out.

Edison Lights And More

Edison lights have been trending for some time, but they’re not the only ones. All sorts of industrial lights are coming to the surface and they are making a huge splash. You can get more than just bulbs.

Bulb covers, lamps, and ceiling lights all come in unique shapes and sizes. Edison bulbs are still reigning but there are still plenty of options if you want to think outside the box and try something new.

Office Living Room Chair

Everyone these days has their own home office, in turn, having their own home office chair. If you want to merge your office into your living room, or if you just like the look, try getting an office-inspired living room chair. 

It’s best to get chairs without wheels for the living room, but you can get swivel chairs. Most office chairs are considered mid-century modern when they come without wheels so that’s a good place to start.

Other unique lights include sphere lights, Mediterranean lights, and lights hung with leather. 

Twist And Turn Accents

Whimsical or wonky are both great themes for rooms you want to stand out. But one thing trending in home accessories is twist and turns. This is especially true for lights since cord covers make it so easy. 

You can even take the lights you do have and twist the cords as you hang them on the wall. Make a pattern with what you have, whether it’s corded from your lights or computers. You might as well do something with what you’ve got! 

There are dozens of different types of home accessories. The most important thing to remember is to do what works for you. If the trends don’t speak to you, then forget them. If they do, then find out how to tweak them to fit your home.
