    the way that I wanted/ wanted it

    1. I was determined to have my room the way that I wanted

    2. I was determined to have my room the way that I wanted it.

    Which is grammatical?

    Re: the way that I wanted/ wanted it

    With a full stop (period) at the end of #1, they'd both be grammatical.

    Re: the way that I wanted/ wanted it

    They would also be grammatical without "that".

    I was determined to have my room the way I wanted.
    I was determined to have my room the way I wanted it.

    I assume you mean "I was determined to make sure my room was decorated and furnished ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
