4 Ways to Minimize a Home's Flaws
No house is perfect. Here are some clever interior design tricks to minimize your home's flaws and make it a more beautiful place to live:
1. Dark Rooms
Everyone loves light-filled rooms. If your home's small windows don't let in enough light, paint the walls a light color to help brighten dark corners.

Invest in organizers for your home's bedroom and front hall closets. A double clothes rail and a few shelves for shoes and sweaters can double or even triple the amount of storage space in a closet. Finally, toss those old wire hangers; wooden hangers make a closet look... Read More
