If you are thinking of listing your home, or even if you aren't and your home just needs a quick pick me up, here are a few fast home improvement things you can do!
Clean It - I know this seems obvious and you may already keep a pretty clean home, but, deep cleaning it, especially in some forgotten areas, can make your home feel and smell much better. Scrub and reseal tile grout, wash window treatments and pillow covers and have your furniture and carpets cleaned. You may be surprised on what a difference this makes!
Patch It - If you can't replace things right away, do your best to patch it up or fix it until then. Look for simple repair solutions (like tile repair kits and ways to repair a hole in your wall) and re-caulk places that need it. Don't just leave things until they can be replaced. Simple patch up maintenance can help things to last a bit longer and keep your home looking like it is well cared for.
Paint It - A fresh coat of paint (even in the same color) can brighten up a space and even make it look new again! If you really want a change, a different color can even change the mood of a room, so decide what kind of change you want and paint away!
Décor & Lighting - Update some décor, like adding different throw pillows, curtains or bedding. Lighting can make a room look totally different as well and doesn't take a lot of time to change out! Either just move some lamps into different spaces, or replace some fixtures as long as you are sure that the power is off and you are safe.
DIY Character - If you have a more modern home and you want some character, add some yourself! Add some trim to doors, crown molding or wainscoting to a wall. These little touches can make a home feel special and unique.
If being stuck indoors has made all the negative things about your home stand out, just doing a few of these ideas can make the space feel fresh again without too much effort or time!
