Getting Your Home Ready For Autumn 2018
The transition between Summer and Autumn is absolutely stunning… and as the leaves begin to fall and the temperatures start to drop, the season will soon be in full force. Furthermore, it’s important that you and your home are prepared for the cosy season.
Here are some top tips to get the most from your property this Autumn:
1) Warm Up your Home
As the days become shorter and colder, you need to consider staying warm in your home. Get yourself some blankets, throws and fluffy cushions and place them on show for not only to keep you warm during those cold nights but for cosy decoration – blankets give you instant comfort and warmth in a home and that’s why they have such a necessary impact on those in the Autumn.
In a more safe manner, it would be an incredibly good idea to get your boiler, smoke alarms and heating checked out before the temperatures dropped too much, and prepared your fireplace (if you have one) i.e. ensuring it works and stocking up on firewood and any other required resources.
2) Get your Coats & Wellies out
As you walk through the door of your home, wouldn’t it be great to be overhauled with the season as soon as you step through? Well, if you don’t have an area to store coats and shoes, now is the right time. As having your coats, wellies, hats, scarves, gloves and even your umbrellas out on show proves that this home is prepared for the British Autumn weather. Imagine it, it’s a cold, muddy day, and you come home and you are able to hang up your coat, put away your muddy wellies and tidy away your hat and scarf, then immediately walk into the warmth and comforting atmosphere that is your home.
3) Outdoor Lighting is a must
Especially as the nights get darker earlier in Autumn, it’s a smart idea to invest in some sort of exterior lighting on your property. As well as this, lighting in your front and/or back garden gives your home the ultimate modern luminosity – lighting up your winter plants and the overall garden shape. It’s a truly gorgeous investment, whether you decide to go all out or even just include some LED lights, it makes all of the difference.
4) Decorate your Bed
As you are coming home from work it will begin to get darker and colder – wouldn’t it be great to come home to a bed that looks heavenly comfortable? Supporting the first point of this blog, you should get your bed looking as cosy as possible. You can do this by adding a blanket, having an unnecessarily large amount of pillows and a warm-coloured bed linen. In addition to this, it would be a great idea to add accessories and adjust features of your room to be the same theme or colours to your bed, to really tick the boxes of owning an Autumn-themed room.
5) Reveal the Metal
When you think about fall, you also think about all of those warm dinners, drinks and snacks you will be consuming during the season. Therefore, you should be considering getting out any metal appliances and keeping them out in the kitchen. This an odd point, however, getting those pots and pans out on show gives the kitchen a real complimenting feel of metal, making the overall home more inviting.
6) Low-light plants
As it gets to Winter, plants begin to die and that just isn’t what you need in a home you are trying to spruce up. However, it’s a necessity to have some sort of nature in a home, otherwise, it looks too plain. If you agree, investing in some low-light or winter plants are a good way of keeping some nature in the home during this cold season.
