You can add plenty of personal style and visual interest to your home without a lot of effort or money; all you really need is a can-do attitude and a desire to improve your home.
Add comfort, convenience and character with the right lighting. Update the chandelier over the dining room table. Add simple plug-in puck lights under kitchen cabinets and inside closets. Cozy up a dark corner with an accent light. Install mini accent lights above wall art or framed family photos.
Frame the views.
Dress up your windows with colorful treatments. Hang the draperies higher than the windows to make the room seem taller.
