5 Must Have Décor Items for Your Home

No matter if you live in a house, a condo, or an apartment, decorating your home is a fun way to express your and your family’s style, while also highlighting your home and making it feel, well like home. Decorating for many is a difficult process, there are so many looks you may like, but what style really resonates? The options are endless, a quick Google search or even 5 minutes on Pinterest will provide you with thousands of pictures to compare your home too. These design ideas can provide some great inspiration, but ultimately you need to design your home and incorporate those go-to items that make you feel at home.

Here we will share 5 must-have décor items every home should have. This is not a definitive list by any measure, but these 5 items will help create a comfortable and welcoming home.

Throw Pillows

Throw pillows may be our favourite decorative item. They are both attractive and useful and come in a wide range of sizes, colours, shapes, textures, and designs. They can be placed on couches, chairs, benches, beds, and even on the floor to add a wow factor to any room. Pillows are inviting and comfortable, helping make any room feel warmer and inviting. Throw pillows can even be utilized outdoors, to create a stylish backyard oasis. 

There is such a thing as too many pillows, however. Try to minimize the number of pillows you have on a piece of furniture or even in a room. They do tend to take up seating space when you have guests over. Make sure you have a place to store your pillows when not in use or additional seating is needed, like a trunk or linen closet.

Custom Wood Signs

Add a personal touch to your home with custom wood signs, there are so many ways you can incorporate the love for your family into your home’s décor utilizing wood signs. Start with the basic “family” sign, it is a great way to call out the areas of your home where your family gathers and spends time together. Custom wood signs can be hung on walls, propped up on a table or hutch, and can even act as the center of a family tree wall photo collage.

The great thing about custom wood signs is that they can be made in a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles. From rustic to contemporary, a wood sign can make your home feel like home, or even have “Home Sweet Home” engraved or painted on it.


Mirrors can make a great substitute for art, and have a way of pulling a room together. Like art, they come in different sizes and shapes and the frames come from basic to ornate and luxurious. You can find a mirror that fits in just about any room in your home. Not only do they add a touch of character to a room, but they are also practical, who doesn’t like to have a once over in a mirror every now and then. They also help spread light throughout a room, making your home feel brighter.

Plants and Flowers

Natural greenery helps us feel more connected to nature and can breathe life into any space. Real plants not only brighten up a room and are easily moved around. They also help clear the air of any toxins, so add some live plants to your décor, and breathe clearer.

Baskets and Trays

Not only are these great décor pieces, but you can also use the baskets to store away items and trays to bunch other decorative items together. Having a few large baskets with pillows and blankets tucked away in the corner or under an end table is a stylish way to keep your space organized. The same goes with trays, you can use them at your front door to keep your keys, or on a nightstand for your jewelry. They come in different shapes and sizes, and having a few on hand is an easy way to create an impromptu centerpiece for unexpected dinner guests.
