- Decorate the dining area
Updating the dining room may not necessarily require a structural facelift, rather a decorative job will suffice. Ensure that you change any tables and chairs to replace the old and worn out ones, that may be creaking. Replace table linen and any accessories that may be in the room like flowers, to give it a fresh look and scent. Also install good lighting if there may not have been any, to create the necessary mood and ambience for mealtimes and other uses.
- Get new linen and rugs
After a while, the carpets, rugs, curtains and other linen in the house can get worn out and dusty due to frequent use. In order to give the house a feeling of newness, consider getting the materials cleaned up thoroughly by a cleaning company and those that may be too old and discoloured can be replaced by new modern looking ones. Get new sheets and blankets as well for the bedrooms to give a new touch to bedtimes.

You can also incorporate led-tape lights which are fun decorative lights which will give the room a pop of colour.
