Look at your room colour schemes
It is easy to have the same room colour schemes for decades, as redecorating is often a time consuming, costly task. Unfortunately, colour schemes quickly go out of fashion and if you desire to have a stylish and glamourous room, you need to be eager to adapt your rooms colour schemes to the changing times. For example, for the last three years the use of grey colour schemes have been frequently used by many. However, it is unlikely that the use of greys will be in fashion for much longer, so keep an eye out of the changing trends and see if you would like to adapt your rooms to have these new colour schemes.
Consider purchasing new furnishings
Our home furniture gets frequent use and once the right kind of furnishings are purchased they can last for years. Sofas are an essential type of furniture which we frequently use. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the type of sofa which you require and how the sofa fits within your room theme and style.

Soft furnishings are also a must, especially when they are used in living areas. Soft furnishings consists of throws, blankets, cushions, rugs and curtains. These types of furnishings help to add comfort to a room and they can also be colour co-ordinated to your desired or pre-existing room’s colour scheme.
Upcycle items tired looking items
If there are some household items that were once costly when purchased, but they are looking tired or they have become broken, why not upcycle them? Upcycling is either where you decide to refurbish an item of furniture, for example a dining room chair, or to re-invent an item into a new item, for example turning an old wooden table into a bench. The beauty of upcycling is it is a cost effective method of adding glamour and design to your home, it is also an eco-friendly option as no new materials are produced in the making of your new looking furniture.
Look at how your rooms are lit
Lighting plays a huge part in creating the ambience of a room. If you are looking for an old vintage glam theme for your room then avoid the use of bright LED lights as they are ultra-modern. Vintage styled lighting is the best method of creating a classy yet glamourous affect to your room. This type of lighting is easily purchased as it is available in both charity, second hand shops and high street retailers. The purchase of lamps and lampshades also add glamour and style to a room. However, lighting is not exclusive to electrical lights, windows also important for adding light to a room. A change of window can make a huge difference in the lighting and look of your room, sash windows are often a favourite as they give lots of light to a room and they also give as much or little air to a room when they are opened.
Make your room spaces more social
In order to be the perfect host, your rooms need to be adequate social spaces for you and your guests to hang out in. If your home lacks space it may be a good idea to re-consider the lay out of your downstairs area. A way in which to re-design the space of your home is to remove walls and to create an open plan area instead of having lots of small rooms. For instance, if you decide to merge your kitchen and living area into one room this will create a more social space and it help with entertaining guests and hosting parties. If you are wondering how making your room spaces more social adds glamour to a room, well hosting fun parties makes a glamourous fun host and if you feel better about your social space you will be more eager to decorate and keep the room looking glamourous and stylish.
