Does your box-like studio feel more like a curse than a token of your independence? As LA renters far too familiar with apartment-style living comparable to an influencer’s walk-in closet, we took to Pinterest for some insight into decorating a bachelor-size dwelling both strategically and aesthetically.

Trick: Get creative with new storage solutions. A hanging rack for pots and pans keeps kitchen counters clutter-free.
