With 2018 just around the corner, you might be thinking about refreshing a few areas around your house in the new year. But you might be wondering - which changes would give you the greatest impact? Today I'm giving you visual proof of 2 home decor categories that are guaranteed to dramatically change the vibe and style of your space.
THE 2 CHANGES THAT WILL MAKE THE BIGGEST IMPACT IN YOUR SPACE: #1 - DRAPERY
I've mentioned the power of custom drapery on the blog before, but I'm hoping the before-and-after photos below will help to drive this point home! Custom drapery and window treatments that are appropriately proportioned for your space will add drama, texture, softness, color, and pattern. In the photos below, of course other elements in the rooms did change, but you will see that drapery is a huge component in achieving the wow-factor-after!
THE 2 CHANGES THAT WILL MAKE THE BIGGEST IMPACT IN YOUR SPACE: #2 - LIGHT FIXTURES
The second impactful home decor category might not be surprising, but I assure you - soooo impactful! Decorative Lighting is similar to jewelry with an outfit - it conveys your personality, sparkly, quirkiness, mood, and style. You will hopefully see in the before-and-after images below, that spaces without the correct light fixtures are mundane, boring, and fall flat. Even if nothing else other than the lighting in the "before" rooms was changed - the rooms would feel wildly different!
So, I hope this study in before-and-after photos helped prove my point - Drapery and Light Fixtures are 2 of the most impactful items in a space and can help you achieve a huge change in your room's decor! Did this post inspire you to change your drapery treatments or any decorative lighting in your home - tell me about it in the comments below!
