1. Add Statement Lighting

Changing your light fixtures can make a stunning difference in your home! While sometimes light fixtures blend in and simply support the rest of the decor, in some cases you might decide to choose lighting that stands outs and makes a unique statement! 

Look around your house at your light fixtures to consider if they are reflecting your personality or making the style statement you want in your home. You can find statement lighting on any budget, so keep your eyes peeled for deals. Little by little, new lighting will create a dramatic transformation in each room! 

Wood beaded chandeliers are one of my current favourite styles of statement lights, try a new-to-you look or find a style that suits your home, it's up to you!

2. Add a Feature Wall

Choose a wall in your home that you want to highlight with a design statement. Perhaps you'll want to feature the wall behind your headboard, your sofa, the wall you see when you enter your home, or a fireplace wall. Take any uninspiring wall and paint it a contrasting color, add wallpaper (I love  these trellis designs),  stencil a design or create a gallery wall of photos in  frames!

3. Install Panelling

There is nothing quite like adding wood panelling on the walls to add character and warmth to a home!  The options are endless. Try board and batten style panelling, horizontal or vertical planks or beadboard give ordinary walls a more interesting look.

4. Paint Your Front Door

Give your front door a quick new coat of paint for a "before and after" you can enjoy the same day! Paint it black or charcoal for a classy look, white to look fresh and clean, or a colour for a lively or energetic statement! You can even paint the inside and outside different colours to coordinate with your decor.

5. Update Window Treatments

Take your window treatments up a notch for a big transformation. Install bamboo shades or blinds for texture and privacy. Add extra curtain panels to make your room look more luxurious or your windows more substantially sized. Raise the curtain rod closer to the ceiling (make sure your curtains still touch the floor) to make your room and windows feel larger. Switch out tired or dated curtains for ones in a fresh new pattern, colour, or texture you love.

Before you get started on any home improvement project, be sure to take a before shot so you can admire and even show off the after! 

Enjoy!
