23 Creative Ways To Hide The Eyesores In Your Home And Make It Look Better

Advertisement

Interior design is always awesome to read and think about, but what about those of us who already have homes or don’t have the money to spend on grandiose and fantastic remodeling projects? Here are a couple of brilliant ideas that will hide some of the common everyday eyesores your home may have and make it look like something right out of a furniture catalog.

The cool thing about these ideas is that many of them are all about both keeping things neat and maximizing limited space. As more and more people pile into cities, the efficient use of space becomes more and more important, which a lot of these mods do. This can involve either clever hiding and storage solutions or creatively re-purposed surfaces – like the blackboard refrigerator. Others are just for removing/hiding eyesores or, better, yet, converting them into something beautiful or amusing.
