#Touch up the paintwork
We spend a lot of time looking at the same imperfections on the walls, and at one point we stop even seeing them. Yes, you know they are there, but they just don’t bother you as much. But they should, and you can easily do something about them. A simple touch-up of paintwork can work wonders. No, really. You can change the paint on walls, you can freshen up the beaten-up areas around door frames, bring some new colors in by repainting old furniture, and hide scuffs and other imperfections. Paint is an easy and effective way to liven up the home and erase visible problems. The key here is to make sure that the fresh layer of paint you just applied doesn’t stick out. Oh, and just make sure you match the paint with the previously applied one (if you want the same color).
Bring some new colors in the space by repainting old furniture
Such a small thing, yet it makes such a big difference. This is a budget-friendly way to refresh your home without doing a lot of hard work or spending a lot of money. Unless you have hardware that is custom-made, this should be a very easy change-up. Replace all of your old cabinet handles, door knobs, and drawer pulls with some shiny new ones. You can try out a new style or finish to help elevate the look of your space, but even getting a new version of your old fixtures, it will still make a difference.

#Upgrade your windows
Weeeeelll, this renovation isn’t the cheapest, but it sure does pay off in the long run. If you have decided to do a big renovation at home, make sure you don’t forget about your windows! Upgraded windows will help to increase your home’s energy efficiency (keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer), will help save you money on bills and block out exterior noise. So, make sure you put this renovation high on your list of priorities, and don’t put it off.

#Install new light fixtures
This is one renovation that is often overlooked by homeowners unless they are doing a big remodeling job. However, there are a ton of benefits to doing this simple upgrade. It’s budget-friendly, it can help brighten up the space, make it feel more inviting and bigger, can become more functional, and it can change up the aesthetics of the room. Lights are such an important part of a space’s design, yet they are often overlooked. Change the lightbulb color, change the fixtures completely, or maybe add some new light sources. It’s up to you.

#Replace broken items
Most of us have the bad habit of keeping broken items way longer than we should. Yes, the freezer door is open, but it still works if you push it really hard, so why throw it away? If this sounds like you, it’s time to take some control and start replacing the broken items in your home. And this can be expensive depending on how many things you need to replace, but who said you need to do it all at once? Start by slowly replacing any broken furniture, appliances, fixtures, and so on with new ones. The new pieces will momentarily give a new feeling to the space.
