“You can paint brick, paint tile, paint wood, paint your walls, paint your ceiling, paint your floors.

“You can probably change everything about your space just with paint,” she said.

If your interior doors are looking a little basic, you can update them without actually buying new ones.

The pro suggested creating a brand new look with moulding.

“All you have to do is get some wood moulding and install some detailing onto that door and it’s going to instantly update that door,” she said.
