Add some character to your home. Swap out the boring utensil holder for a decorative Mason jar and fill it with wooden and decorative spoons. Fill a bowl with fruit and put it on the table. Fresh flowers in another room can add that freshness to that special room. Do not leave a lot of appliances on the counter leaving a lot of items out to make the kitchen look smaller.
Cleaning up the flower beds, adding mulch, removing the dead plants, edging and planting some seasonal flowers will make a nice first time presentation. If it's winter time buy 2 planters and plant small evergreens. On a porch or stoop and a couple of chairs out front to expand your outdoor living space.
