Here at Wall Glamour, we’re well aware of the fact that most households don’t have the unlimited budgets that most interior magazines have when giving rooms a makeover.

So below we’ve created a quick look at some quick and thrifty ways that you can improve your living spaces and give them some real character.

One classic way to make a small room seem much larger, is by using a large mirror to create the impression of a much greater space. With an endless choice of shapes and frames to choose from, mirrors can be decorative pieces in their own way and also create a much lighter room.

Bathrooms nearly always have the problem of having limited space whilst being fairly utilitarian. And there is indeed nothing harder than making a toilet look impressive! However, this rustic bathroom uses untreated timber planks to create a refined and natural feel, whilst the gingham shower curtain adds to the warm country atmosphere.

Here’s another great example of overcoming the common problem of dealing with limited storage space on a limited budget. The dark wood of the vintage cases contrasted with the white walls and chic modernist furniture create a great juxtaposition. And the best thing is, the more crates you add, the greater the effect!

Often, a large part of making a space work is to take away rather than to add. This compact living room is given a modernist touch with the exposed brickwork making a great naturally textured feature to what could otherwise feel like a very boxed-in room.

And finally, if you’re really stuck for a quick and creative way to add a bit of bling to your home, try out this fantastic use of the humble Sharpie pen to give some simple ceramics bit of glamour.

And the best thing is that the pen’s use is not restricted to just ceramics. This plain wall has been given a great, yet subtle make-over with the gold pen stencilling. The hardest part must be to know when to stop!
