Preparing Your Home for Fall


It’s almost fireplace weather! Here are some ways to get your home in the fall mood.

If you aren’t already excited about updating your home for fall, here are some interior decorating tips to get you started! Whether you love Halloween décor, want to warm up the living room for Thanksgiving, or just want to incorporate some fall colors or designs into your home, fall decorating doesn’t have to be a pain.

Update Your Living Room with Throw Pillows and Blankets

As your activities move from the patio or deck to the living room, update the space to make it feel warmer and more inviting. Hiring a residential cleaning service will get your interior ready for new fall décor. Experiment with different shapes, sizes, and colors of throw pillows on your sofas or living room chairs. Try using autumnal colors like warm yellow tones, burnt orange, or deep reds to match the leaves as they change outside.

Fall is also the perfect time to unpack any warm plush throws you stowed away for the warmer months. If they haven’t been cleaned since last year, wash them and spot clean them before putting them back out in your living room or bedroom. There are countless patterns, textures, and colors available when it comes to throw blankets so don’t be afraid to experiment. Try complementing your throw pillows with your throws to help bring the fall season into your home’s living room.

Prepare Your Fireplace and Warm Your Space

If you have a fireplace in your home, the time to prepare it for the fall and winter chill is now. While it isn’t in use, dust and debris accumulate. Hire a contractor who can check over your chimney and make sure it is ready for seasonal use before you stock up on logs and matches. If your home doesn’t have a fireplace and you want to warm it up, consider purchasing and installing a new electric fireplace for the feeling and look of warmth without a chimney.

If fireplaces aren’t your speed, experiment with scented or unscented candles. There are many fall scents available for you to pick from, so any home style can be complemented with a candle. Candlelight is also a great way to add some extra ambiance to your living room or dining room during the fall months.
