Q: Many of the house tours and posts on Apartment Therapy are of apartments with unique layouts or structural components. As a young renter, my options are limited as to what I can afford. Unfortunately, that leads me to renting an apartment in a ginormous complex with an awful, boring layout. There seems to be only one way to set up the furniture, which is the foundation of the room. How do people battle these "cookie cutter" apartment layouts to show some originality?Sent by Koala
