Whether you have just moved into your home or have outgrown the current interior design, a fresh coat of paint can make a dramatic change. Relatively inexpensive, changing the color of your hallways, doors and rooms can all be done in a weekend.

This makes it even easier to freshen up your paint job.
Adding a new element to a room can significantly alter the way an area is used and perceived. Investing in an ottoman or coffee table creates a new focal point in the room. This will give the area a new atmosphere and will change the way a room is used.
Try different accent pillows on your sofas and chairs: the potential impact is limited only to your imagination. Quality throw pillows can be found very cheap, so you can have a number of themes ready to go at any time.
Your home does not end at the walls of your house. Your yard and patio are living spaces and should be treated with the same attention as the rest of your home.
Change up your cement patio stones for large pieces of flagstone. Add hanging baskets of flowers and vegetables to your deck railings.

The thing to remember is freshening up your house and home becomes as complicated and expensive as you allow it. There are lots of easy projects that are very cheap but make a huge impact.
