If you’re reading the style section of this site, there’s a pretty good chance you care about how you put yourself together. You’ve thought about your style, evaluated your closet, and invested in the kind of wardrobe that says something about who you are as a person. 

There’s also a pretty good chance that your apartment, house, or other form of homestead (yurt?) doesn’t do that same job of reflecting your taste and personality. We’ve all been guilty of copping that grail piece instead of replacing that threadbare IKEA sofa. But unless you live like a hermit, you should consider the kind of statement your personal space is making when friends, family, and dates come over to hang out. 

Luckily, even if you’re not able to drop a few grand and redecorate the place wholesale, there are some easy, affordable ways to upgrade your home.
