Paint – you can try repainting some parts of your home to make it look new or refresh its appearance.  You can try painting the exterior of your home such as the rear part so you can practice on your painting skills, or you can try doing some painting on the interior of your home.  To change the look of your interior, you may want to try painting your kitchen cabinets with another color that contrasts the current one.  This will give the inside of your home a new appearance.  You can also try painting the cornice, baseboards, mantel, door frames, window frames, and siding design elements to give it a new look.

Plants – try doing some gardening on the front of your home.  If you have a curb, try planting some flowering plants there and putting in some garden lights to elevate the look during nighttime.  Having a well-maintained garden at the front of your home as well as at the back of your home will make your home look cozy and more inviting.
