Everyone craves something new from time to time. That includes where you live. But even if you plan to stay put, making some changes to your surroundings can give you a fresh, happier outlook.

Fortunately, it won't take too much effort to refresh your home. Invest a little time, money, and elbow grease. And you can make some dynamic changes to your home on your own.


1. Upgrade your interior and exterior doors

Add some color to your home with a newly painted front door and a chic new door knocker. If you have the funds, spring for a new door. Choose one with window cutouts to allow natural light indoors. Purchase it at your local hardware store and install it yourself.

You can also brighten up your home indoors by painting your interior doors. Consider adding trim for some extra pizzazz. This is a simple project that only requires a few tools, like a saw, hammer, sandpaper and tape. Materials include molding, wood glue, finishing nails, filler, and paint. The finished products are unique doors with character.
