Buying a new home in the summer means you get to spend your first few months enjoying your home in the fall season. It’s the perfect time of year to unpack, decorate, and make your home feel cozy and warm. Get ready to try these four ways to make your new home “fall-friendly” this season.
Moving can be a little hectic at times, and your home will likely look a little bare while you get everything sorted. To make you feel more at home, just add some seasonal decorations. A stunning autumn wreath on the door, potted plants filled with mums and asters, and some gourds on your patio can add some quick colour. You can also enhance your home’s interior by adding festive coloured pillows, soft fur blankets, and pumpkin spice candles — perfect for the cooler temperatures.
With perfectly cool temperatures and little to no humidity, fall is the perfect time to get the paint brush out and add a splash of colour to your new home. You can add colour to a feature wall and even change it up as you like. Regardless, a fresh coat of paint will make you feel like your new home is really yours.
Light It Up
With the shorter days and longer nights upon us, now’s the time to light up your outdoor areas. A simple row of solar lanterns can add some aesthetics while also improving the safety and security of your home.
When you move into a new home, you can never be too sure about what to expect. That’s why it’s important to inspect everything to ensure it’s ready for the cooler temperatures. Come fall you should have your HVAC system and fireplace inspected to ensure that your heating system is ready to handle the cold weather. Also, any drafts around the windows and doors should be sealed to keep your home airtight, warm and energy efficient.
It’s easy to make your home “fall-friendly” with a little decorating and some simple additions that symbolize everything the season stands for — warm, colour and coziness. If you follow these steps, you’ll be ready to cozy up by the fireplace as soon as the first cold spell rolls in.
