Colder weather is here, which means it’s that time of year when you’re likely to spend more time in your home than outside. However, if your home isn’t cozy and comfortable, or doesn’t fit your style, you’re less likely to feel AT home. Now that it’s October and the holiday season is quickly approaching, it’s time to make some updates for fall to get you excited about your home.

Before you begin any new projects, first think about what you need to complete or repair. If you still haven’t gotten around to that last coat of paint, or fixing that stuck door, should you really start something new? Make a list and don’t wait too long to tackle it.

After you’ve completed projects, it’s time to think about how you can update your home to make it more comfortable:

  • Does your home feel cold and unwelcoming during the winter? Look for ways to save on energy, like letting natural light in during the day, and adding thick curtains to keep the cold out at night. Check the weather sealing around doors and windows, and the insulation around the rest of your home.
  • If your yard is bare and boring, get more use out of it this fall with an outdoor fireplace and seating area!
  • Outdated appliances can make your home feel drab – replacing them with updated versions can get you excited about using your kitchen or taking a bath.
  • Updating your décor can give your home a refreshed look. Ready for those candles and holiday lights to sparkle more and give your home that cozy feel? Adding mirrors around the house can help reflect warm light. A large rug can help soften a big room and make it feel more homey.
