Afraid of dipping your toe into the home improvement pool? Don’t be. There are many things you can do to spiff up the old place without spending a fortune.

1. Paint – A fresh coat of paint makes a world of difference. Repainting our home, especially the high-traffic areas, was a cheap and simple way to give our rooms an instant facelift. When we moved into our new condo, we splurged and hired professionals to paint the entire space, which included the ceilings, baseboards and crown molding, and we definitely don’t regret it. And to maintain the fresh look, I have painted the high-traffic areas on a yearly basis with the same color.
