Depending on the time available, and the condition of your home, here are some other items to consider:

Carpet - does it need to be cleaned or replaced?
Walls - would washing the walls be enough, or should you paint?
Ceilings - When were they last painted? Dingy ceilings can make an otherwise bright home seem dark.
No job is too small!
