Although spring is commonly known as the time of year for cleaning, the fall season creates a great opportunity to refresh your home and get ready for the upcoming cooler months. Here are some tips to freshen up your living space for fall.
Although this may be obvious, use the changing of seasons as inspiration to do a thorough cleaning of your living space. Summer can be a very busy time for everyone – and it’s often beautiful outside and unbearably hot indoors – which means chances are there are some areas of your home you have been neglected. So set aside a day (or weekend depending how much work needs to be done) and give your home, apartment or townhouse a cleaning that will have it looking like new.
Along with cleaning, go through and get rid of things in your home you don’t need. Whether you have clothing you no longer wear or items you no longer use that are taking up space, decluttering will not only make your home look better, but is a great stress reliever as well. Plus, you can also donate many goods to local charities and even receive a credit for your donation to claim on your taxes.
Store Your Summer Clothes
Now that fall is coming, shorts and T-shirts won’t be getting as much use. Take the time to go through your closet and take out anything summery and store it in an armoire or another closet in your house. While you’re working, start hanging up and bringing out the clothing that will keep you warm for the colder temperatures ahead.
The further we go into fall, the shorter the days are going to become. Make sure you don’t get left in the dark by making sure you have enough lighting in your home. Whether it’s adding another lamp or adding some scented fall candles, a bit of extra light will make your home a bright, warm and cheery refuge in the cold dark of fall.
