You don't have to spend a fortune to get your home looking good on the inside. Whether you’re getting your house ready to sell, have company coming into town or just want to keep it nice for yourself, here are some ways to keep your home fresh indoors.

Rearrange furniture. One of the most affordable and easiest ways to give your home a new look is to rearrange the furniture. You can rearrange furniture in a single room or shuffle pieces from other rooms in your house. You'll be surprised at how moving a few pieces of furniture can change the entire feel of a room.

Awaken tired walls. Nothing makes a room look newer than a fresh coat of paint. Painting a room in a brighter color is a great way to brighten up your home. Also, consider painting your trim around doorways to freshen the look of your house.

Re-fixture your cabinets. Tired of looking at the same-old kitchen cabinets? Give them a different look by changing the handles. The right finish can make all the difference and will save you the high cost of having to replace your cabinets.

Re-grout tile. Do you have tile in your bathroom or kitchen that looks old and worn? Over time, grout between your tiles can get dirty. For a crisp new look, re-grout your tile with a new color. It's time consuming work, but inexpensive.

Another way to give your bathroom a refresh is to replace worn faucets and fixtures.

Clean your garage. Looking to get more space in your garage? Get organized by putting off season items in hard to reach places to give yourself more floor space. As the seasons change you can rotate items so those in season are easy to grab. 

Light up your home. See your home in a different light. Literally. Consider purchasing new lamps and lighting fixtures to give your home a brighter, new appearance.

These simple projects are great ways to spruce up your home for you, your company or potential buyers to enjoy.
