Unless you're living in a luxury high-rise with a yoga studio and doorman service, your apartment is probably fairly simple in design: bare off-white walls, hardwood floors (that are most likely just painted laminate), harsh overhead lighting. To make things worse, if you're living in a rental, making any massive upgrades to your space is likely out of the question — thanks to painting restrictions and a big no-no on hardwiring. The good news is, there are several easy ways to elevate your space without spending a fortune.
That's why we partnered with Command™ Brand for a guide to 10 easy home upgrades, all under $20. Whether you're looking to turn those boring shelves into a midcentury masterpiece or just want to get rid of the plastic hardware throughout your space, there's an inexpensive fix here to help you on your way. Click through, and get inspired to give your space a makeover. You may not have that 2,000-square-foot loft quite yet, but at least you can fake it.
