Now that summer is almost over it’s time to start thinking about Fall and Winter. Just like you do in Spring, I think Fall is the perfect time to give your home some extra attention. It enables you to get ready for those cozy nights in. Which is why I thought it would be a great idea to share with you some of the essential tips you can start implementing now. So you can get your home ready for fall. I hope they inspire you.
Start decluttering your home
We can all get a little complacent with our homes during the summer. I think this is because we tend to spend a lot of our time outside, or even out and about socializing with friends and family. Paperwork can pile up. Unread magazines can litter your coffee tables. Even general things like clothes and shoes can be left untidied. This is the perfect time to get into action and start decluttering your home. It may even inspire you to try and create some new storage options to keep things tidy moving forward.
Do some of those yearly chores
We all have chores on the list that we don’t want to do. But while the weather is still good or you have some time, it’s the perfect opportunity to get some of them done. This might be things like clearing out the gutters of your home. Sprucing up your garden one last time. Even vacuuming under the bed or cleaning out those hard to reach places in your homes. Upon doing these chores, you may identify problems. Cleaning your mattress or under the bed, for example, may highlight a nasty surprise like bed bugs. It’s important to try and eradicate these problems as soon as you are aware of them. You may be wondering how to kill bed bugs? But thankfully it’s easy to do once you identify the problem. Just head online for more advice on what to do.
Get some cleaning done
Cleaning may have been the last thing on your mind during the summer. Much better things to be doing with your time. But now that the days are getting shorter, and the air is getting cooler, you can cease the opportunity to get some of those cleaning jobs sorted. A great tip would be to work through each room and try and give them a deep clean. Then create yourself a schedule to keep on top of it going forward.
Add some new bits to revamp the style
Sometimes it’s great to style your home to the seasons. Fall is a great season to incorporate some soft furnishings like blankets and cushions to make some of the rooms more inviting. Perhaps changing the color scheme in some areas to resemble the season ahead. Lot’s of gold, copper, yellows, and browns all work well with this season. You could even decorate some of the rooms if you wanted a real change. Adding different accent walls can give any room an instant lift and makeover.
I hope this has inspired you to get your home ready for fall.
