Home Furnishings Accessories Tips

Now that you have purchased the main pieces for each of the rooms in your home, you will need to find the right types of home furnishings accessories that will accent every inch of your space. Here are some great suggestions for every room in your home, as well as the best places to find home furnishings accessories at prices you can afford.


The right lighting can make any room in your home come alive, and finding the home furnishing accessories for your bedroom, dining room, home office, or living room does not have to be such a hard task. If you do not already have a ceiling fan in your living room, you can check out stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s to find varieties that are contemporary, and that will add ventilation to the room as well as adequate lighting.

You can choose the type of bulbs you want to add to the ceiling fan, and you can save on air conditioning bills as well. If you do not want to install a ceiling fan, you can also check out freestanding lamps that will add just the right amount of light to any space. You can choose lights that will illuminate one isolated part of the home, such as lights that highlight a painting, or office lamps.

Adding colored bulbs to your lamps will also add a unique glow to the room; you can choose red or blue bulbs for children’s rooms as well.

Antique Pieces

Home furnishings accessories can often be found in the same style or form at different stores, but if you want to make your space especially original, you should look for some antique pieces that will add a slightly different style to your space.

For instance, if you have a bedroom that is furnished with Asian-inspired pieces, you may want to find a dresser or cabinet that has the angular shape of Eastern furniture, but distress the wood so that it looks vintage.

You can also search your local consignment shop or thrift store for antique pieces like lamps from the 1950s or dining room tables from the 1970s. These are home furnishings accessories that you will not be able to find anywhere else, and they will definitely be conversation pieces that your guests will notice when they come over.

If you want to know more about how you can get the great home furnishings accessories that you want, you can bid for original items on EBay, or you can shop online on sites such as Overstock or Amazon for discounts on the accessories that will make any room in your home stand out.
