Understand the importance of prepExperts agree that time spent preparing your walls before hanging wallpaper will result in the best possible finish. Take the time to assess and treat the walls, particularly if you’re using a metallic-finish paper, which can expose even the smallest imperfections.Check which adhesive and paste the manufacturer recommends, and whether your walls should be lined. ‘Most manufacturers will suggest priming the walls first, which means sponging on a watered-down paste solution prior to hanging,’ says Taylor.

Glam it upWhy treat your bedroom as second class? Complete your haven with the most extravagant light fitting in the house. Chandeliers look as good over a bed as they do over a dining table. Stick to muted colours elsewhere in the room to make the glitz really stand out.

Feature glamorous lighting. Whether it’s a ceiling fixture, table lamps or pendants, statement lighting amps up the luxury factor. You might choose a fixture or lamp with a shiny finish — perhaps gold, glass or crystals. Selecting one with a large or unusual shape can also help the room look more upscale. I think of statement lighting as room jewelry that instantly adds sparkle and glamour to an ordinary bedroom.
