Getting Your Home Ready for Fall: Style and Interior Tips

Getting Your Home Ready for Fall: Style and Interior Tips

It’s officially time to put away the summer decor and outdoor furniture. The leaves are beginning to drop and the kids are back at school. Getting your home ready for the fall is about making it as comforting and warm as possible. It’s also a great excuse to explore autumnal pallets and switch up your interior design. Mimicking the warm burnt shades outdoors and bringing them inside will help to create a look that feels curated for the season.

Create scents that look and feel autumnal
We often forget that scent is just as important as the visual aspects of a home. Autumn provides a perfect opportunity to explore some of the warmer, spicier fragrances on offer for our homes. Browsing through large jar candles and potpourri that are autumn themed in color and scent can create a visual and sensory spectacle. Here are a few fragrances to opt for if you’re looking to evoke the season of autumn through the scents you use in your home:

Fig – this manages to be sweet and fruity in a more grown-up, sophisticated way. This is the fall equivalent of using coconut or pineapple fragrances in summer.

Cinnamon – a fall classic. It can be divisive for some, but by using it in combination with something else, you can minimize its intensity.

Sugar plum or pumpkin spice – mixing winter spices with fruit and deserts is the ultimate fall scent. Nothing says autumn is coming like pumpkin spice.

Pine – this adds freshness and evokes snowy mountains; perfect for creating the feeling of winter lodge in a pine forest.

Get your thermostat and radiators prepped
It’s all well and good creating a home that looks great in the fall, but you also want to have a home that feels comfortable. Adjusting your thermostat, or installing an automated one will keep your home feeling just right as the evenings get colder. Why not get creative with your central heating, too? Installing radiators that are a design feature in their own right will keep your home looking fly, as well as helping you to keep warm. Companies such as Warmrooms specialize in tall, vertical radiators that would look great in any new bathroom or box room – or indeed any room with limited space.

Get your firewood delivered
While many of us might not enjoy the act of cleaning out the fireplace, the act of lighting your log fire is a privilege that is best enjoyed as the days get colder. Modern central heating is great for keeping your home warm in a practical sense, but a crackling fire is far superior when it comes to comfort. If you’re looking forward to this again in the fall then be sure to remember to get your logs delivered well in advance. Getting them ready and stacked in your garage will mean that once you’re ready to start lighting fires in the evening again, it’s just a matter of grabbing them and getting ready to go.

Getting your home ready for the fall is about getting your practical tasks done in advance. Don’t forget to get your gutters cleaned in advance, and perhaps after the fall. Those falling leaves may be pretty, but they might wreak quiet havoc on your home’s roof and drainage.
