Adding some cute, vibrant prints and colors to your car seats is a great way to make your car stand out and turn all your trips into cheerful adventures. There are so many beautiful designs to choose from: vivid flower prints; lots of retro, boho, hippie, and trippy styles; mushrooms; rainbows; you name it.
Car seat covers not only protect your seats from spills, UV rays, and dirt, but they can also be used to add a unique, personal touch to your ride. Whether you just want to get the front seat covers or go all in with the full set, you'll find something that speaks to you and reflects your unique style.
2. Mix and match with steering wheel covers

Another great way to transform the interior of the front of your vehicle is with steering wheel covers. Like seat covers, they also come in many different colors and patterns.
There are so many benefits to having a steering wheel cover—while it gives your vehicle a stylish makeover, it can also keep the wheel cooler on hot days or provide warmth when the temperatures drop. A steering wheel cover can also make your drive more comfortable by cushioning your hands and reducing fatigue.
3. Did someone say plants?!

Yes! Plants are a great way to bring your car's interior to life; they help filter the air and are good for your health. You can place a couple of small plants on the dashboard or in the cup holders.
We recommend succulents or cacti—both grow well in heat and drought conditions, which makes them one of the best choices to grow inside a car. They are low-maintenance plants; just don't forget to water them at least once a week.
4. Make your car smell ah-mazing

Everyone loves a freshly scented car! Car diffusers come in many different styles, from classic scents on cards to mini glass jars, bottles, and even trendy bullet shapes. Whether you're looking for something subtle or show-stoppingly stylish, it's time to find the right car fragrance that fits your personality perfectly!
This little idea can make your car look extra elegant and smell ah-mazing! Your co-passenger will never know that you had a cheeky takeaway for breakfast!
5. Protect your floors with car mats

Weatherproof car floor mats are a must-have for any car's interior because they protect the seats from dirt, spills, and everyday wear and tear. Not only are they functional, but they also come in a wide range of styles and designs to suit your personal taste.
Made from rubber or carpeted material, car floor mats are easy to clean and maintain; simply vacuum or wash them with soap and water. Investing in a set of weatherproof floor mats is a small but invaluable step to keep your car in the best condition.
6. Tablet holders for the kids

Have you thought of having a tablet holder in your car? If you have kids, then we recommend it 100%. Keeping the little ones entertained on long rides can be hard, especially after you have already played "I Spy" at least 16 times.
If your kids love to snack, a tablet holder is a convenient accessory to hang up and let them enjoy their favorite movie or show while eating. Use it as a distraction for your children if you are trying to navigate traffic or if you just want a quiet car journey—we don't judge!
7. Beat the heat with car shades

Have you ever burned yourself with a hot steering wheel after it's been exposed to the sun for a while? Ouch! Same here! Living in Australia, the sun and UV rays can be very intense and damaging, not only to our skin but to our cars too! Leaving your car under the sun for hours can ruin your dashboard and fade those beautiful front seats.
Getting yourself a car windshield sun shade would change your life and protect your car! And not to forget to mention that, like every other accessory, the foldable sunshade can come in so many cool designs and customizable patterns.
8. Avoid chafing with seat belt covers

We know the feeling all too well when your seatbelt cuts into your neck, chest, shoulders, and other body parts rather uncomfortably.
But not many people know that you can get covers for seat belts! Seatbelt covers are an essential accessory for any car, providing a layer of comfort and protection from seatbelt chafing. Not only do they cushion the belt, but they also come in a variety of colors, textures, and designs to help personalize your vehicle. They are easy to install and can be used in any make or model of car. Seatbelt covers also help protect your seatbelts from wear and tear, which can help them last longer. Plus, they are machine washable, making them a practical and long-lasting solution for your car.
Car decoration can be a great way to add your own personal touch to your ride and make it truly unique. Whether you choose to go for a subtle touch or something bold, there are plenty of ideas to choose from. From window decals to seat covers and even car wraps, you can easily transform your ride into something that reflects your personality and style. With a little bit of creativity, you can really make your car stand out from the crowd and make it your own.
