Rather tight budgets and high expectation/demands have always been the main problem of any home owner. I don’t know a single person who doesn’t want to give his or her house a glam lift and pay almost nothing for it. The following statement is extremely important during recession, so I hope the following tips will help you to make a great house for a chic and glam girl and not to stay without a cent.

  • furniture

Please, don’t underestimate the power of furniture.Especially when it comes to a bedroom.Your bedroom furniture should be expensive. You’ve got me right, only furniture can show how rich and stylish you are. You’d better save some money on linens or curtains but not on your sofas and beds. It is very important to understand that contemporary furniture is a key to success, because it makes your lady’s sanctum look super glam and chic. Let the bed become an expression of your own style and vision of the world.

    These are really cool tips. During the recession, people tend to neglect their homes, and see its aesthetics as second, third, etc or sometimes even last priority, since it can get expensive. But with tips like yours, a nice-looking home is definitely approachable.

    I would say color is very important too. Different colors cause different emotions and responses. Having warm colors certainly makes the room feel different compared to dark colors
