TOM: Already getting the winter blues? Brighten up your living space and your attitude with a few affordable home improvements. Hi, I’m Tom Kraeutler:
LESLIE: And I’m Leslie Segrete on WCBS 880 with today’s Money Pit Home Improvement Minute.
TOM: After holiday decorations are packed away, lift your spirits once again with a few shoulder-season updates. Start at the front door by polishing hardware, rolling out a new doormat, and making sure porch lights are in working order and equipped with bright bulbs.
LESLIE: Plant pops of winter color in porch containers and strategic spots throughout landscaping. And start spring early indoors with planters of forced bulbs or a mini herb garden in a sunny window.
TOM: Nothing beats winter blues like bright lighting. So make additions and adjustments for warm, welcoming comfort throughout your family’s waking hours.
LESLIE: You can also warm up living areas with colorful throws and comfortable pillows, adding spring tones and textures as the next season draws near.
