4 Ways to Personalize Your Car Without Looking Gaudy

We’ve all seen those blinged-out cars with crazy paint colors, obnoxious furry steering wheel covers, and bumper stickers slapped onto the back of them. You probably cringe at the sight of it and think to yourself, “I could do a better job decorating my car.”

Well, unless you put those words into action, you can’t prove it. So, if you’re itching to personalize your car and add more flair to it (but in a classy way), you’ve come to the right place.

Below you’ll find four ways you can personalize your car without looking gaudy.

1. Add a Fresh Coat of Paint

Unless you’re buying a new car, you don’t really have a say in the color of it. Sometimes you may even want to add a new, unique custom color. This is one of the best ways to personalize your car.

Adding a custom coat of paint will help your car feel like it’s yours and make it stand out in a crowded parking lot.

Now, you do have to be careful about the color you choose. Try to stay away from crazy pinks, purples, and greens. These will make your car look less classy, but if they are your favorite colors, then you should pursue them if you want. For a less gaudy appearance, you can choose more subtle or classic colors.

2. Slap on a Steering Wheel Cover

If you’ve bought a used car, there may be some wear and tear on your steering wheel. Or maybe you’ve owned your vehicle for a few years, and you notice the steering wheel looking a little worn. The best way to fix this and personalize it at the same time is with a steering wheel cover.

You can choose chic leather covers or soft fabric ones that match the interior of your car. You can even throw on some seat covers to really pull the entire interior together.

3. Upgrade Your Wheels

Sometimes replacing the wheels on your car is just the thing you need to make it yours. Choosing wheels that have a color that complements the car’s paint job is both classy and stylish.

You may even enhance the performance of your car and have a smoother ride by upgrading your wheels. For example, if you have a Ford, you can replace the wheels with VenomRex VR-801BL wheels that come in three different colors.

4. Enhance the Interior

We’ve talked a lot about the exterior of your car, so now let’s talk about personalizing its interior. Of course, you’re going to spend all of your time inside of it anyways.

A new trend people are utilizing is LED lights along the bottom of your car’s carpet. You can also add twinkling lights on the interior roof to make it look like a starry night. Be careful with this, though, as it does teeter on the line between classy and tacky.

You can also add some fun air fresheners, stylish phone holders, and even car coasters to really make the interior of your car yours.

Be creative and express your own style and personality through your car with these tips.
