Paint only one wall
This is also a way to spice up the walls, at a very low cost. It is about painting only one wall, or a zone of it, with a nice color, to give a little life to the environment.
It is likely that the color of the walls you do not like, if you can not really repaint them, do not despair, there are some alternatives. For example, the removable adhesive vinyl papers, it may not be necessary to cover all the walls, but to give a different touch to some sector.
Painting doors or windows

Collage of pictures
