Instead of changing out all the doors in your new home, save some cash by painting them and switching out the handles. For a custom look, paint the door grooves a contrasting colour like in this photo.
Problem: We have beautiful floorboards in our new home, but they’re pretty scratched in the main hallway

No need to replace those beautiful floors – rent a buffer to reseal the hardwood and restore them to a slick shine. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, strip them down entirely and paint them in stripes or a herringbone pattern.

Make summer entertaining easier and invite the fresh air indoors by switching out those sliding doors with French doors that can stay swung open, or by installing a garage-style door that pulls up (and doubles as a shelter if it rains!).
