7 Easy Ways to Give Your Car Some Personality

People spend a lot of time in their vehicles, and depending on your commute, you may easily be spending over 10 hours in your car every week. When you add on engagements, road trips, and running errands, your car becomes like a second home. So, it’s only right that you give it a small makeover and make it a reflection of who you are as a person. You also don’t have to break the bank to give your car a whole new look. Here are a few simple ways to give your car some personality. 

Get a New Number Plate 
Doing something as simple as adding a custom number plate could help your car stand out. Services like Number1Plates offer all sorts of road legal number plates you can choose from. They offer 3D gel plates, 4D plates that have an added layer of acrylic above the number, and classic custom plates. Whether you have a pet name for your car or have any other unique plate ideas, you could order one online and add a personalised touch to your vehicle. Number1Plates will be able to guide you through the registration process and tell you which names you can or cannot use. A nice number plate is a quick and easy way to make your car stand out and might get you a laugh or two. 

Use Registration Plate Frames and Decals 
Now that you have your new personalised plate, why not help it stand out even more with a registration plate frame? You can find them in all sorts of different colours and themes, whether it's a hobby, profession, or anything that showcases your personality. Decals are also a good idea if you’re feeling a bit adventurous. 

Add Seat Covers and Floor Mats 
This is another cheap and fast way to make your car cosier and more fun. Let’s face it, car interiors can get pretty drab, and adding some colourful floor mats will not only improve it but will double as a protection against rain and snow. You can also buy seat covers in your favourite colour, though it would be a good idea to go for lighter shades that will keep the car’s interior cool in the summer. 

Have the Car Repainted 
If you just bought a used vehicle and aren’t thrilled about the colour, you can always get a new paint job. While this is a bit more expensive than other options, this is the chance to get the colour you’ve always wanted. You can also go for funky unusual colours that you rarely see on the road. This is one of the best ways to personalise your car and make it fit you. 

Don’t Forget the Small Details 
You don’t necessarily need to do something big to personalise your car, however; small changes count and will eventually add up. Maybe you’ve come across a nice steering cover that would stand out, an accessory for your rear-view mirror, or maybe a nice front sun shield. Look for modifications that will make your car both stylish and practical. 

DIY Modifications 
You also shouldn’t be afraid to do some modifications yourself either. There are tons of things that you can do on your own that will greatly enhance your car’s look. For instance, doing something as simple as tinting the front lights could give your car a nice stealthy look. This is something that you can do on a penny as well. Wrapping is also something you can do on your own. Even though it might seem intimidating, you don’t necessarily have to wrap the whole vehicle. You could decide to wrap the roof only, or the wing mirrors, for instance. You can even find wrapping for the interior - indoor wrapping is a quick and easy way to give your interior a second life and won’t cost much either. Just make sure that you follow the instructions, and check a few videos as well before you start. Another thing you could do is add some racing stripes. This is much easier than having the whole car wrapped, but will completely change the look of your car. 

Add Some Interior Lighting 
Interior lighting is all the rage right now and is another great way to make your interior pop. You can have someone install them for you, but this is another project you can do yourself if you feel confident. Door lights are another great addition; these will allow you to display any design you want on the ground when you open doors. 

As you can see, there are tons of different things that you can do to make your car stand out and reflect your personality. Always look for new ways to personalise your car, and improve the way it both looks, and feels.
