How to Get Your Home Ready for Fall

Looking for ways to make your home fall inspired? There’s more that you can do besides throwing up a few orange and brown decorations. You could invest in fall-themed candles, throw pillows, blankets and much more.

Many people take fall decorating as an opportunity to get creative and work on a fun DIY project. There are so many inexpensive ways to make your home match the season.

Here are a few of our favorite ways to make your home fall inspired:

  • Add a few decorative pillows: Wondering how to change your furniture to be more fall themed? Add a few decorative pillows that feature fall-themed colors. Simply find inexpensive throw pillows that remind you of fall, and place them on your couches and chairs. When purchasing throw pillows, be sure to consult with a home furniture expert about which colors would work best with your current couches and chairs.
  • Make it smell like fall:  What reminds people of fall more than the smell of cinnamon and apples? There are many ways to make your home smell like fall, including candles, deodorizing sprays and much more. You might even want to create your own scent by boiling apples, oranges, cinnamon sticks and chai tea together. This will create an amazing scent that permeates throughout your home in no time. Just be sure to keep an eye on the mixture, and add water as needed.
  • Place apples and pumpkins on your counters and tables: A simple way to make it feel like fall in your home is by adding a fruit bowl full of apples to the kitchen table. A few thoughtfully-placed pumpkins will also help your friends and family get into the fall spirit.
  • Create something special: Fall offers the perfect opportunity to do a DIY project with your friends and family. You and your loved ones could gather leaves and branches to make a fall-themed wreath. You could also go to an art store together and gather supplies for a fall-themed flower arrangement. These supplies might include various fake flowers and a nice vase. You could even just purchase a vase and fill it with several branches covered in orange and yellow leaves.
  • Warm up with some drinks: Now that the nights are getting cooler, it’s a good time to start drinking ciders and hot cocoa. Purchase the supplies to make all your favorite fall-themed drinks. There are plenty of recipes available online for fall-themed drinks that you may have never tried.
  • Consider some new furniture: If you’re looking to redecorate anyway, consider replacing your old furniture with something perfect for the season. A wooden wardrobe, for example, provides that natural look that’s especially popular during the fall. Since you’ll be using your fireplace more during the colder weather, consider making it look nice by adding some decorative mirrors.

As you can see, there are plenty of ways to make your home more fall inspired. If you need advice on decorating in the fall, or if you’re in the market for some beautiful furniture, contact the experts at Orangeburg Furniture Exchange.
