Lots of us come to Apartment Therapy to find great ideas for our own homes. This past year was full of inventive solutions for the home, as evidenced from these ten of our favorites:

FIRST ROW:

1 Look! Microwave Hidden in the Cupboard
2 Good Idea: Stencil as Wallpaper
3 DIY artwork from Pixelated Artwork Made from Paint Chips
4 feather place mats on a fireplace mantle from Look! Unexpected Outcome for a House Tour-Inspired DIY
5 the graduated, highly curated open shelves on the left in this photo from Susy and Dale's Cozy Reno Studio

SECOND ROW:

6 game pieces in jars, on display from Clever Storage Ideas
7 taken from a restaurant, this idea could be snatched for bike storage at home, from Look! Bike in a Frame
8 from disposable to reusable: Reader Tip: Shamwow as Swiffer Pad Replacement
9 cozying the bed up to the exposed back of the chimney from Reader's Rooms: Watch the House Grow
10 aluminum angles provide some extra storage space in the kitchen, from Mike's Apartment Grows with Him
