It may sound impossible, but you really can improve your home in less than ten minutes. Installing window boxes takes about five minutes and makes the outside of your home look spectacular -especially if you clean your windows, which takes about 30 seconds each.
Instead of setting aside hours every weekend to weed and mow your yard, try investing in an automatic mower and try pulling up a few weeds every day when you get home.
When you want to improve your home from the inside, the same principles apply. Installing a mirror and a rug in your hallway will make it look bigger and help you hide worn carpeting practically instantly.
Of course, as this infographic points out, some methods to improve your home will take longer than ten minutes, but adding in a few minutes of preparation will make these bigger jobs go smoother and faster.
