We all enjoy upgrades to our living spaces, so Designing Spaces decided to look at three very different approaches to taking a living space to the next level. Our first topic looks at home remodeling: a big topic that ranges from simple DIY to major professional overhauls. One thing they all share in common is the desire of the homeowner to keep quality up, but costs down. A visit to a leading buying club specializing in home refurbishing provides homeowners with a wide range of options. Next, we take a totally different tact by looking at off campus rental apartments for college students. Not only are they more comfortable, the may be less expensive than living on campus. For our final topic: a master bedroom makeover, complete with DIY design tips, and suggestions on how to stay within budget.
