  • If you want to block harsh sunlight and glare, sun visors are a must-have accessory.

One way to make your vehicle feel like your own is to personalize it with interior accessories. Some are practical and designed to make life easier, while others are simply there for an aesthetic upgrade. Whether you’re in the market for the former or the latter, you can’t go wrong with these must-have accessories.

Air Freshener

One of the easiest interior accessories to set up is the air freshener. Simply hang it on your rearview mirror, air vent, gear shifter, or any other place where it can affect the air in your ride.

Air fresheners mask foul and musky smells in the vehicle, making breathing easier on top of making the cabin smell better. Besides their typical tree-shaped form, air fresheners are also available as sprays and aerosols.

Cargo Mat

If they’re left unsecured, cargo in the trunk can move around and scratch the compartment’s floor. To prevent floor damage, it’s a good idea to invest in a cargo mat.

Not only do cargo mats protect the surface, but they also prevent cargo from moving around. They’re typically made of rubber that prevents cargo from skidding inside.

Coin Box

Tired of the struggle of finding coins to pay tolls and parking meters? Why not get a coin box for your car? 

Coin boxes are coin containers designed to hold and organize all sorts of coins for everyday use. They typically have several slots or pockets, allowing you to separate your pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters for easy retrieval.

Cup Holder

If you want to enjoy a nice beverage inside your vehicle without risking spills, invest in a cup holder. This handy accessory keeps cups, bottles, and other containers upright and in place as you drive.

With a cup holder, you can keep your drink nice and secure while your hands are occupied. Plus, even if you don’t have a drink, having a cup holder gives you some extra storage space for other things like your phone, IDs, and even money.

Dash Trim

Spruce up your dashboard by installing a snazzy new dash trim. This accessory is a decorative add-on that gives your dashboard a makeover when installed.

Floor Mat

With the help of a floor mat, you won’t have to worry about damaging your car floor any time soon.

Keep your vehicle’s floor clean and in great shape by getting a floor mat. Walking on a bare car floor can scratch it, while the dirt and moisture from your shoes can rub off the surface. In time, that can damage or wear down the floor, cause corrosion, and even leave behind unpleasant smells.

With the help of a floor mat, you won’t have to worry about damaging your car floor any time soon. These mats provide an additional protective layer that keeps the floor in good condition.

Seat Cover

Spruce up your car seats with some fancy new seat covers. Not only do they make sitting in your vehicle more comfortable, but they’re also more aesthetically pleasing.

With seat covers, you can easily create a unique look for your ride. Get ones in a bold color to add a bit of diversity to your interior’s palette or choose covers in the same tones for a more subtle style up.

Shift Knob

Another must-have interior accessory to give your ride some extra character is a shift knob. Shift knobs serve as handles for the gear shift. They come in different shapes and sizes, making it easy to personalize your gear shift. You can get your hands on a shift knob made of wood or polished aluminum. You can also get creative with custom designs.

Steering Wheel Cover

If you want to protect your vehicle’s steering wheel and improve your grip and comfort while holding it, invest in a steering wheel cover. This interior accessory comes with the benefit of making the steering wheel look better too, giving drivers more ways to customize their vehicles.

Steering wheel covers come in a wide array of materials and designs, from comfort grip vinyl and racing grip leather to boho-patterned fabric and camouflage memory foam.

Sun Visor

Last but not least is the sun visor. Sun visors are used to shield drivers and passengers alike from bright sunlight and glare.

Some sun visors are fixed, while others have a swivel mount that lets you reposition the visor to block light more effectively. They also come with various features, such as storage pockets and a mirror on the passenger side.
