Sometimes, you just need to make a change. And no, we're not talking about cutting your bangs.
If you’re feeling the urge to give your home a new look but don’t have the time or the budget for it, don’t stress. There are some small changes you can make to your space to garner big results. Here are a few of our favorite quick and easy design tweaks that make all the difference to the look of your home.
If a restaurant can merely dim the lights at dinner time to create an entirely new ambiance, imagine what you can do by making a few lighting changes in your home. Hang sconces on a bathroom wall or a chandelier above the living room to warm up your space. You can even do something as simple as change the lampshades on lamps you already have. Find your home’s new and unique lights and lamps at Uncommon Lighting.
Pillows and Throws
No need to throw out your favorite comfy couch and chair to change up the look of your living room. Just incorporate some new pillows and throw a stylish blanket over the backs of the furniture. You’d be surprised how just how much of a difference some new patterns and colors will make. Get inspired by the huge array of choices found at the Fabricut showroom.
If you’ve got a little more time, consider painting or wallpapering an accent wall. Go for a bold solid in a neutral room to add a dramatic flair. Or try a patterned wallpaper in more subtle tones to make a big (but not ostentatious) statement. And since it’s just one wall, it’ll be easy to change back when you’re ready for another mini-makeover. Be sure to check out the unique and beautiful offerings at Innovations in Wallcoverings to find exactly what you need.
Windows and Floors
If you can only do one thing to switch up your decor, consider changing or adding drapes or curtains on your windows. This lightning-fast change will make you feel like you’re in a whole new room the minute you walk in. And since you only spent a few minutes putting up new window treatments, you've still got time to lay down a new rug, too. With a huge selection of new, antique and vintage rugs to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect one at Esmaili Rugs & Antiques.
As you can see, you can get that big change your craving without having to redecorate your entire home (or wait for those bangs to grow out). And the shops and showrooms at the Dallas Design District have everything you need to do just that.
