See how to make a simple floor plan and figure out what goes where. Spruce up with basics on everything from painting walls to refinishing furniture. Go straight to the "cheat sheets" for instant information on essential purchases. And because first apartments often aren't perfect, take a tip on turning existing decorating features into designs that work for you: separate a large room into two smaller spaces with a hanging divider.
