5 Tips for Creating a Glamorous Room on a Budget

The way you decorate a room can bring new life to your home and redefine your style. This is great in theory but when you can spend hundreds of dollars on a throw pillow, decorating starts to look disastrous for your budget. A quick browse at the furniture store leaves many people wondering ‘can I have the glamorous home that I desire without breaking the bank?’ Well we believe the answer is yes and we’re here to make it a reality. Here are 5 tips for creating a glamorous room on a budget.

  1. Build a Bedroom with Great Drapes

Your bedroom is more than just a place to rest, it’s also your personal fashion statement. Making use of shape and light in your bedroom can create a decadent décor that you’ll be happy to sleep in and proud to show off. Simply position your bed near a bedroom window and hang some rich velvet drapes. The flowing drapery will allow you to let in as much or as little light as you want and by matching it with the colours and patterns with your bed sheets you can create a simple yet effective masterpiece. Even if you don’t have a window you can hang some drapes behind your bed. They will help to shape your room and will become the most glamorous bedhead you could imagine.

  1. Create Luxury with Layers

No matter what room you’re revamping, the clever use of layers can create a sense of openness in your home. Hanging some thick, soft drapery on your windows will evoke warmness and luxury in your home. Match this with an almost translucent sheer curtain as a bottom layer. This allows you to make the most of layers without blocking out the sun. Try using complementary or contrasting colours for your layers to create a bold fashion statement.

  1. Bring Nature to Your Living Room

If you’ve ever wanted to explore the great outdoors from the comfort of your living room then a warm, earthy décor might be right for you. Match a rich hardwood floor with bold, rustic furniture selections and finish it off with beautiful timber venetians. Not only do timber blinds complete the alfresco feeling but they also give you great control of natural light, letting you decide how the sun strikes your room.

  1. Create a Feature Wall

If you just can’t bear the bare walls in your home a feature wall is the perfect solution. Putting drapes or curtains against a bare wall can create a dramatic or friendly design, depending on the material you use. With a little bit of silk or some or some textured fabrics you can turn your blank space into an artistic masterpiece. Create something for the kids or a more formal living space, the options are limitless!

  1. Curtains for Storage Space?!

Nothing takes the glamour out of your home faster than clutter. Restore style to your home with an elegant storage solution. By hanging curtains and drapes around your home you substitute expensive cabinets and cupboards with sophisticated and graceful materials. Hide your shelves, your clothes and even your bed behind a graceful curtain that matches the style of your room.
