If hardwood floors are real bad, don’t kill yourself trying to save them. Install carpet.
Paint the ceilings with white ceiling paint. It is cheap, not much extra work, it brightens up the place and looks better than painting them wall color.Use one of those fleece things to cut around the edge. Paint the whole inside the same color except bathroom and kitchen. Don’t use the cheapest paint, it’s too thin but you don’t need the most expensive stuff either. Good mid grade hardware store paint is fine.
Those new flat light switches add a luxury touch for only a couple of bucks. I would put them in every room.
