However, with some effort, you can make your car interior into a stunning piece of art without compromising on the quality aspect.

Types of car interior accessories

That will make it easier for you to pick out the individual components for redesigning your car’s interior a whole lot easier.

In this article, you will also find some helpful tips that you can follow while shopping for these accessories.

Car seat covers 

Seat covers are what people notice the first when they get inside. This is not surprising as it takes up the most space inside a car and probably has the most contrasting colours when you compare it to the rest of the interior. But a seat cover is not all about the looks. The fabric of the car seat plays a huge role in deciding the comfort level of the seats. When you are selecting a car seat, you have to consider your lifestyle. If you have kids, it is better to choose a car seat cover that is easy to clean rather than going for a good looking one. However, it is possible to go wild with customisation and luxury when it comes to car seat covers.

Car mats

A good car mat is the essential car decoration accessory for keeping the car floor free of dirt and mud, especially if you live in a wet place or you are off-roading. Ca mats are available in a lot of different styles and materials. Some of them focus more on the functional aspect, while others are geared towards luxury. In order to find a good car mat that fits your needs, you should look at how the mat collects the dirt, how easy it is to clean them and how durable it is. Some car mats even have dust collectors on the underside. When you are looking for all these things, don’t forget that a good car mat should also stay in place without slipping.

Dash kits

The dashboard is the most functional part of the car interior. Therefore, it is not surprising that it is the most customisable part of your car. Furthermore, the dashboard is a collection of many different accessories like the multimedia player, steering wheel, glove box, and whatnot. This leaves a whole lot of room for customisation. You can put so many different kinds of car interior accessories on a car dashboard, including Heads Up Displays, mobile phone holders, custom third-party multimedia players, LED lights, and dashboard mats.

Aftermarket car seats

The car seat can set the tone of your interior. You might think that why would anyone change the car seat as a whole when you can change the way it looks using a custom car seat cover? Well, there is a limitation to what custom car seat covers can do. By installing an aftermarket car seat can, you can change the look of your car interior to classy, sports, or luxury. If you are somebody who loves retro looks, you can even replace the stock seats with a bench seat. Sporty people usually go for the bucket seats or captain’s chair seats. You should take the age and health of people who would be using the car while customising the seats.

Tips on how to buy Car Interior Accessories

Selecting a car interior accessory might not seem like a difficult task at first. But it might be harder than you think. There are so many things to consider making sure that you get all the things right. Moreover, there are thousands of different options when it comes to customising the interior. All of these make it hard to find the right accessories and to mix and match each one of them to achieve a pleasing look. But things get easier if you know what to look for. Here are some tips that you can follow while shopping for them.

  • Choose the right style – The trickiest part of customising car interiors is making sure that all the different elements inside the car complement each other’s style. There is no one way to do it. Rather, you can mix and match different colours and designs. One rule that applies regardless of whatever customisation you are doing is to keep everything to a single style.
  • Material of the car interior – Ideally car interior accessories must look good and be comfortable. But in real life, you will have to make a little adjustment here and there. Try to strike a balance between comfort, style and cost. Accessories that are both stylish and of high quality tend to cost more.
  • Safety – Most countries have rules regarding what you can customise and how much customisation you can make. For instance, there are rules limiting the brightness of LED decoration inside a car. According to that, the lights inside the car should not be distracting for the driver. While selecting car mats, go for non-slip mats or a set that has clips to keep them in place.
  • Durability – Some car interior accessories are pretty expensive. So, if you are investing in something like that, then make sure to buy things that will last for a really long time. By choosing products from a reputed brand, you can be sure that you get a good quality product with a good design that is also legally compliant with the rules of your country.

Car interior accessories provide an incredible range of customisations. You can turn your car into a 70s retro wagon or a futuristic travel pod using the right accessories. Or you can try doing both by fitting a futuristic heads up display on a retro dashboard. The only limit is your imagination.

Question & Answer

How to clean the interior roof of a car?

If you have been riding your car for a few years, you know that the first thing inside the car that shows the age is the car roof lining. This is because there are tiny fibres in them that trap dust and dirt. It can be hard to get rid of them using regular cleaning methods. The best way to prevent the roof turning black is to keep your windows up as much as you can. And if your car roof is already dark, then you can clean them using a microfibre cloth and fabric cleaner that is upholstery safe. Spray the cleaner on the surface and wipe it using the microfibre cloth. The microfibre cloth will avoid the formation of lint.

What is car interior dressing?

Detailing is the process of restoring the look of the car. This can be done to both the interior and exterior of the car. Interior detailing involves a thorough cleaning of every nook and cranny, including the vinyl, storage boxes, and covers. The first step of the cleaning is vacuuming. This will get most of the large dust particles inside the car. But this is also the easiest part. Then comes the brushing of the upholsteries, seat covers, car mats and the floor. This will take a lot more time, depending on how dirty the interior is. If there are leather trimmings inside the car, they require special attention. Before finishing off, there will be one more vacuuming to clear the remaining dust. The final step is perfuming the car.

Can you use vinegar to clean car interiors?

Surprisingly, the answer is yes. White vinegar is one of the many household things that you can use to restore the look of your car. But first, you need to prepare the cleaning solution by mixing equal parts of water and white vinegar. You can use this mixture to clean the interior parts that are made of plastic, wood, or vinyl. Spray the mixture on those parts and wait for a few minutes for the mixture to soak into the material. After that, you can wipe the surface clean using a smooth fabric or microfibre cloth. Finally, you can apply some mineral oil on the surface to protect it from sun damage.
