When it comes to redecorating, there are generally two routes: sometimes, you want to do a full decor overhaul, but other times you just want to make a few tweaks that will dramatically change the look of your room.
A fresh paint job or new furniture is great, but these options can be costly and time consuming, and we believe that one of the best ways to make quick budget friendly changes is to simply upgrade your lights and lighting accessories.
In today’s post, we’re sharing a few easy upgrades you can make that will have a seriously big impact.

Upgrade to a statement fixture.
Daisy by Mitzi
A statement light fixture can add an instant dose of style to your room and take a space from average to Pinterest worthy.
Consider the impact of an eye catching chandelier in place of a standard flush mount and you’ll see what we mean! Spruce up your living room, dining area, foyer and more by changing nothing but the light fixture.
Below are a few of our favourites and for more, check out our post here where we rounded up 52 of our favourite statement fixtures.

Upgrade your wall plates.

Think wall plates have no place in decor? Think again! The stylish designer wall plates from Legrand’s adorne collection make a huge impact and are such a simple swap.
The plates are available in a wide variety of materials, colours, and designs, and can even be customized. We love using them in high impact areas such as your kitchen backsplash.

Upgrade your light bulbs.
Yup, even light bulbs can have a huge effect on your space! We are proud to rep the Smart Bulbs from DALS lighting which, among many other features, allow you to change the colour and lighting temperature from your bulbs all from your smartphone or home assistant!
How does this affect your decor? Lighting temperature has such a big impact on the look and feel of a space (and can even change the look of your paint colours). Think of the cozy hygge vibe a soft warm light can create vs. the fresh airy look you get from a cool bulb. With the Smart Bulbs, you get the best of both worlds because you can navigate between cool lighting (great for mornings and day time) and warm lighting (great for evenings and entertaining).
Switching to a Smart Bulb is as easy as screwing out your old bulb and screwing in a DALS bulb. To learn more about the bulbs and DALS’ other Smart Home products, check out our post here.
Upgrade your table lamps.

Switching a plain table lamp out for a cute one adds a super stylish pop to your space. We especially love the table lamps from Mitzi, which are as much a decor piece as they are a light source.
