Some of you don’t want to admit it, and the temperatures definitely don’t agree, but Summer will end in less than a month.

Maybe you’re newlyweds sharing your first home together, you recently graduated and have your own space for the first time, all your decorations are crafts made by your kids ten years ago, or maybe you’re just ready for a change. Whatever the reason is, you’re in the right place for some tips on how to prepare your home for fall!

Getting Ready for Fall

1. Plant a Autumn Garden

There are so many beautiful flowers that thrive in this time of year. Enhance your curb appeal with some pops of color. Dirt under your fingernails is good for you, too.

2. Update Your Front Door Decorations

From Pinterest to Etsy, there are so many creative fall door wreaths and decorations out there. Find one that fits your style or even pull out the hot glue gun for a fun DIY project.

3. Paint Before the Weather Turns

If your home’s exterior is starting to fade, chip, or mold, don’t wait til it gets too cold to paint. Warmer weather equals quicker dry times and happier painters.

4. Deep Clean Your House

Fall cleaning makes just as much sense as spring cleaning. It’s a time of transition for many people with school starting, extracurricular activities changing, and switching out your warm-weather clothes for cozier options. You might as well put some elbow grease into that well-loved stove top.

5. Change Your Indoor Decor

Break out those pumpkin spice candles, cornucopias, and cinnamon brooms (or whatever makes you happy). Get in the spirit of changing weather, upcoming holidays, and warm drinks by the firepit.

The changing of seasons is bittersweet for many. Preparing your home for fall can be a fun way to spend time with your family and make your house feel like a home!
