Whether you’re a renter on a rigid lease, a city-dweller on a sixth-floor walkup, or just on a good, old-fashioned budget, giving your space the makeover you want may sometimes seem beyond your grasp. For those willing to get creative, though, there are limitless quick-fixes and cost-efficient decorating ideas to be had. One of our favorite ways to instantly upgrade any space is by swapping out the hardware. Even if you’re still working with the flimsy furnishings from your college dorm, judiciously chosen hardware can make all the difference between beyond-basic and breathtaking.
