If you want your home to look expensive on a budget, then consider these DIY options that will give your home decor an instant makeover! From tile to paint to textiles, there are simple things that you can do yourself or have complete before the Holidays.
1. Porcelain Tile vs. Marble Tile: We offer a variety of Marble Tiles in various formats to choose from, and if you love Calacatta Gold Marble as much as we do, you are going to love our Porcelain Calacatta version! The upkeep of our Porcelain Tile is minimal, and we just love how it looks on the bathroom floors and up the walls! Ask us how to get this look at an amazing price!
2. Paint Interior Doors Black: This Gloss Black Paint finish is a fabulous and inexpensive way to add a touch of sophistication to your home. You will not have to worry about replacing cheap manufactured doors if you simply paint them a gloss black. Not only are they easy to wipe down with a damp cloth, they do not show dirty fingerprints.
3. Fake Expensive Curtains: Whether you purchase your curtains at IKEA or Potterybarn, no one will notice the difference if they are hung properly. Use this example as a guide on how to DIY. If your window casing is 6″, use a beefier rod that is 3″, and then double the casement size to determine the height. In this example, the casing is 6″, so double that and hang your curtain rod 12″ above the window casing. Voila, you not only have an expensive look, you have visually raised your ceiling!
While getting ready for all your holiday guests this season, consider sprucing up a few areas of your home to celebrate the holidays in style! Holiday decorations cannot cover or hide all your home’s imperfections, so show off certain areas such as a bar or wine cellar where you can entertain your guests.
Whether your style is rustic or contemporary, take cue from these two wine tasting room designs. This striated Marble Counter mixed with glass panels that showcase your wine collection is perfect for that transitional home where traditional meets contemporary design. Complimented with a crystal chandelier, this wine tasting room is nothing short of dazzling.
Cozy up by the fireplace, but first treat your guests to your secret vino collection that you have been coveting behind these steel and glass doors. Floating shelves over these trunk inspired wine cabinets creates dimension and warmth. This contemporary yet rustic design makes for one celebratory Country Christmas! Ask us how you can achieve similar looks with our Marble & Reclaimed or Porcelain Wood Collections that you can incorporate into your own wine tasting room!
I love the idea of recycling furniture pieces and using them as a vanity in a rustic bathroom, such as this reclaimed wood wash table. You can find similar styles at Potterybarn or even your local antique or thrift shops. The top drawers are handy for storage, and you can mount a farmstyle trough sink on top with counter space to boot!
You can accomplish a similar look with dressers or console tables with marble tops if you want that stone finish, and ask us about our unlimited options for Subway Tiles and Trim Pieces to get this classic look. Go for a darker and larger format porcelain tile like our Statale Porcelain Tile on the floor, and keep everything else white and rustic. There are many wall mounted faucets on the market that have that vintage appeal, and check out this bargain online. Get your home holiday ready with a classic no frills rustic look that will last generations!

Next time I stay in New York City, I have my sights on Robert De Niro’s The Greenwich Hotel to feel like I am submersed in a New Yorker’s life. Not everything needs to be skyscrapers and flashing lights while visiting NYC, and often it is the brownstones or hidden gardens down a beaten brick path that peak my interest. From the spacious yet tasteful design of this hotel, you’d be surprised to find some dazzling Moroccan Zellige Tiles in your accommodations.
These Zellige Tiles are handcrafted from a natural clay and then glazed with an enamel in a variety of hues. The glossy finish and smaller scale creates texture and reflection on walls, floors, pools, tubs, and almost anywhere you can install tile in a residential setting. I love the look of the brick shape mixed with the smaller 2″ squares, and this creamy white combined with an espresso brown is masculine and classy. The smaller bastketweave on the floor into the shower creates pattern and dimension, and I am definitely drooling over this glass pane shower door and antique fixtures.
