Make Over With Paint

Pick a limited palette of three or four colors that are closely related and paint the prominent rooms in your house. Avoid intense colors which can be off-putting to prospective buyers. Neutrals tend to have broad appeal, and you can introduce an accent color in small doses with pillows or a throw.

North-facing rooms, with their colder light, can benefit from a warmer paint color, such as a sunny yellow, while south-facing rooms can handle cool grays and blues without feeling drab.

Estimated cost: $1,200
