1. Light fixtures and lamps. Ceiling-mounted light fixtures, fans and table lamps can accumulate an amazing amount of dust over time — which can dull the surface and block light. Get your light fixtures gleaming with a soft microfiber cloth or duster.2. Doors, knobs and handles. It should take only a few minutes to go around the house giving knobs and handles a quick swipe with the cleaning product of your choice, but this little task can really make your space look cleaner. Give the front door some extra love by cleaning it inside and out with warm, soapy water on a well-wrung-out soft sponge, and dry it with a soft cloth.3. Wall scuffs and dings. Using a damp, soft cloth and a bit of dish soap, or a product (like Magic Eraser), swipe off scuff marks. Fill any dings in the wall and touch up with paint.Find household cleaning supplies in the Houzz Shop

A burst of color. A door is always a great opportunity to add color. Happy turquoise distinguishes this entrance, playing off the artwork over the console table. Meanwhile, metallic Moroccan wallpaper and a Moravian star pendant draw the eye upward. Wallpaper: Metallic Moroccan Star, Thibaut; wall color: Revere Pewter, Benjamin Moore; door color: Mediterranean, Sherwin-Williams; coat rack: Rowan (Greenville); Moravian star pendant: Shades of Light; door: Rogue Valley Door

Spots of bright color work well with neutrals. Sherwin-WIlliams’ Mediterranean on the door, mixed with bright blue and lime green accents, creates a cheerful vibe.

10. Light effects. The combination of a wallpapered ceiling and a statement pendant light creates an illuminating effect in the entry of this home. The paper is monochromatic with a darker background and lighter geometric pattern. When the light shines on it, the pattern reveals itself even more. Experiment with the combination of pendant and paper to see how this look could work for your space.

7. Play up the light. If you’re finding it hard to create the decorative interest you’d like in a hallway, check out this space. The trellis-patterned wallpaper on the ceiling adds a layer of detail, and its metallic finish glows when illuminated by the pendant light.The color of the paper coordinates with the paint above the crisp wainscoting, which protects the walls from scuffs in the busy hall.
