Keep the winter blues away by keeping yourself busy with the following home improvement ideas:
Painting During the Winter? You Bet!
Since you’re stuck inside staring at the walls, why not give them a fresh coat of paint? Contrary to what many homeowners might believe, you can use paint in your home without opening up all the windows and doors, as long as you are using the right type of paint. Paints with low-volatile organic compounds, also known as Low VOC paints, don’t produce the noxious fumes traditional paints do.
It can be a relatively inexpensive fix, depending on how much you want to spend on the paint and how many rooms you want to finish. Painting the walls will give you a great do-it-yourself project, and it adds to your home’s appeal; a new coat of paint simply makes a house look cleaner. Source: FoxBusiness

Spice Up Your Kitchen
Full kitchen remodels can be incredibly expensive, and that’s especially true if you have to get plumbers or electricians involved. But a lot of kitchens don’t necessarily need a complete redo; they could be vastly improved with just a few inexpensive changes and upgrades.
For example, changing out the hardware on your kitchen cabinets can both update your kitchen’s look and increase its utility. Meanwhile, upgrading your kitchen faucet and sink is a great way to add a wow factor to the heart of your home without spending a lot.
If your cabinets need a facelift, consider sanding and staining them, or even repainting or glazing them to add an updated look. And if your appliances are still in good shape, give them a good cleaning inside and out to help them look their best. Source: TheSimpleDollar
