Nothing spruces up a house in an inexpensive way like a coat of fresh paint. Generally a house needs a fresh coat of interior paint every five years or so. Any time people are busy in a house it is bound to get smudges on the walls and appear dirty. Painting is also a great time to evaluate the house for dents or holes in the walls that are in need of patching. Patching holes is best done before painting. This will give the walls a really fresh, new look. The smell of fresh paint also has a psychological effect on people, and makes them think of the house as newer, even if it is not.
Make sure that all of the rooms have good lighting. Poor lighting can make rooms look dirtier and smaller than they really are. Improving the lighting is a great way to give the room a fresh open feel. When you are improving lighting do not forget to pay attention to the lighting fixtures as well. Lighting fixtures can also improve the general feel of a room. A very plain room can be made to feel more elegant with great lighting fixtures.
