What are the easiest but most needed house improvements one can do?
Painting can change the "mood" or "ambience" of a room, is rather inexpensive, and usually can be done in an afternoon or weekend.
you can go in for Nice interior design you like in your house, so it will soothe your thoughts and living..
In this day and age of trying to save money, big ones are new windows and doors, air tight ones and a bathroom and kitchen improvement will pay for itself. We've owned 3 houses and those fly well.
Moisture creates problems. Keep wood surfaces properly sealed and covered with paint. Proper landscaping to move roof water away from your foundation.
Easiest? Most needed? If you've got any plumbing skills, make sure all your pipes are arranged properly and that they all have the proper vents.... weatherstripping.... replacing any windows or doors that are broken or have broken seals...any cracks in your foundation...
esthetically... a fresh coat of paint, new trim (which can be very inexpensive), new window treatments and new fixtures (plumbing fixtures, light fixtures, etc)
Personally, I would try and concentrate on the exterior of the property, but obviously be very careful with high level jobs such as fixing roof tiles, painting fascias etc. At least then your home will be dry in winter when you can concentrate on interior jobs.
Obviously internal jobs such as a leaky pipe or dripping tap can and should be remedied quickly, to avoid further problems.
