How to Add Glamour and Style to Your Home
From bright glass pieces, giving off shine to lamps, and mirrors that play with the light, adding glamour to a room is relatively easier nowadays. Glamour is all about looking good, feeling good and loving seeing that reflection of you. With the economic downturn, people require a touch of glamour in their lives more than ever.
You can add glamour to your house in any budget. Making your home look stylish can be both a simple, and a complex process, depending on how much of your home you want to revamp. It can be as simple as purchasing new throw pillows, getting beautiful books to display on your shelves, finding elegant glass pieces to place on tables or hanging mirrors where you feel they belong. Making rooms welcoming with comfortable furniture is part of creating a glamorous space. For your living room, here is a tip: arrange the living room furniture in such a way that there are two seating areas, even if one is just a corner with a lamp, chair and a table.
Lighting has a huge influence on a room and is, unfortunately, frequently neglected and seldom paid any heed to. Undoubtedly, good lighting can make you and your guests look good.
When you are choosing furniture for your home, do not just go for those pieces that appear to be the most eye-catching in the showroom. Rather, concentrate on the look that you are trying to aim for at your own home. An ultra modern settee with chrome accents will not prove to be of much help with the Georgian look you might be aiming for. Consider what type of furniture you want before you even leave the house. Keep this in mind: buy well-made furniture that is not trendy, and always choose quality over quantity.
Wooden floors are one of the most essential pieces that can help you add style and glamour to your home. Do not just head straight for Pine Laminate flooring, though, have a look around first, and choose according to what your budget allows you to.
If your house has lower ceilings, like many modern houses, once the natural light has gone, keep the lighting to the sides of the room for a warmer feel. Light, open spaces not only allow your home a more airy feel but also give off a stylish and glamorous look.
Mirrored furniture has real pizzazz, and is a terrific way to add instantaneous glamour to a room. If you do not want to go for furniture, replace wooden shelves with mirrored versions. Mirrored glass now comes in cleaner shapes for a more contemporary feel.
Apart from these tips, the most significant, as well as the most inexpensive and obvious way to keep your home glamorous is to keep on top of the day-to-day chores. Keep toys out of sight when they are not being played with; do not let ironing take over the couch, and keep pet hairs to a minimum. Even the busiest homeliest homes can have a little glitz and glamour.
