Unless there is a theme style then there isn't a way.

Also you should have posted this here to get an answer to your query.

Your topic heading makes it seem like it's a how-to xD you might wanna be a bit more careful with the headings...
Also, I'm 99.99% sure you cannot install CM without rooting. Well, you might be able to just flash recovery and flash CM on it, but I won't advise something I haven't done

go into dev options and disable root access and you will be able to use CM without root, not sure why you would wanna do that..but its possible

PS- btw questions go in the Q&A section...

rooting before flashing a custom rom is useless, flashing recovery and then flashing a custom rom is how it should be done.. but ppl have just made rooting one of the steps, and now new users think rooting is actually necessary to flash a custom rom..
