Attend to the Windows
Make the most out of available natural light with windows that are sparkling clean inside and out. Dust and wipe down blinds with a damp rag; use an iron or a garment steamer to freshen drapes.
If the existing window treatments are beyond saving, look for inexpensive blinds or curtains to give the room a quick update.
If you’re good with a sewing machine, making a set or two will save a few dollars and give your home a personal touch.
