19 ways to spruce up your apartment

Filed Under: bathroom, kitchen, remodeling

Those of us who have lived or live in apartments sometimes feel the need to just go berserk and make the place all our own. It's true that we don't "own" an apartment per se, but we do own the "environment" inside the apartment. Who says we can't get a little creative and spruce up that inside with some creative yet cheap solutions for our own little custom piece of the world?

Have lots of books but just don't like the look of clutter? Try curtained bookshelves. Better yet, get really organized and take advantage of all the nooks and crannies available to you inside your domicile. Even hide storage areas with tablecloths or other decorative items so that those books can be handy, but also be hiding in plain sight.

Want to not feel squished in front of the boob tube? Try open-air furniture and armless chairs. Use those corners too, and don't forget to give your kitchen some personality. After all, this is where you live and it needn't be so depressing, unorganized or lifeless. Space is only an issue if you don't get things looking like home instead of "the inside of an apartment."
