Enhance your floors with these peel-and-stick tiles. They're made with flexible vinyl and have an adhesive back that's durable but simple to remove.
"They're so easy. You can just peel off the back, plop them down and smooth them out," said Taylor. "You can also cut them to fit your space."
If you want to get more creative, Taylor recommends experimenting with different colors and patterns to totally customize your floors.
Taylor used these sleek knobs to add a sophisticated and modern look to her medicine cabinet.
These are finished in matte black, but you can also get them in brushed brass, polished chrome and satin nickel. In addition to the knobs, each kit includes screws and a template for easy installation.

Taylor says this is her most impactful tip because it can make a huge difference in your kitchen's design.
"It's a great way to switch up the way your kitchen looks either on a super small scale — like right above your stove — or all over," she explained.
