People love fall. We sure do! In addition to football, pumpkin spice, and Mother Nature showing off her best colors, autumn is a great time for making a few cozy and festive enhancements on your home.
Here at VPC Builders, we have professional designers on staff who know a thing or two about transforming your house into a seasonal dream. Here are a few fast and easy tips for your fall home makeover.
And if you’re looking for a full-on home makeover — maybe remodeling your kitchen or adding a guest room — we can do that, too!
Perhaps the easiest way to upgrade your living space for fall is by changing your home’s colors. Swap out fabrics with warmer, autumn-themed hues — blankets, pillows, curtains, rugs, and bedding are all quick and simple changes you can make to give your home an instant makeover.
If you’re up for a little bit more work, try painting a wall or two with a fall-friendly color. Just one colorful wall in a room can bring new life to a familiar space and set the mood for all your favorite fall activities.
Which colors should you choose? Start with warm neutral tones such as various shades of brown or cream as the foundation for your autumn palette, then add splashes of accent colors like deep red, muted orange, rich yellow, and warm purple.
If you’re the kind of person who enjoys a well-set table, you’re going to love what you can do in the fall.
In addition to autumn-colored dishes, napkins, napkin rings, and placemats, you can decorate your table with rustic foliage. Twigs, sprigs of herbs, shrub berries, dried flowers, acorns, bark, pine cones, and hand-made garlands are all it takes to turn a dining room into a warm and welcoming retreat from the rest of the world.
When it comes to decorating for fall, don’t underestimate the power of scents to complete the setting for your fall home makeover. Cinnamon, apple, chai, vanilla, burnt woods, and even some toasted marshmallow will fill you and your family with memories destined to last a lifetime.
As the days grow colder and the nights get longer, you’ll love having a snug, comfortable spot where you can curl up with your favorite shows, books, music, and hot beverage.
Find a place (or, better yet, multiple places) that is in a corner or off the main walkways in your home. To start, you’ll need a restful armchair, a small pillow, and a soft blanket. Light a candle or two nearby (preferably a fall-scented variety) and place it on a slice of wood. Perfect the mood by installing soft white bulbs for warmer lighting and a relaxing atmosphere.
Not only do these small makeovers provide you with a cozy spot to unwind, but they also establish the spirit of the season in your home that encourages everyone to slow down and enjoy the moment.
If you’re having trouble finding the right spots in your home for cozy fall spaces, maybe it’s time to do yourself a favor and do some remodeling. With the right contractor and clever designer, you can build new places for making new autumn memories.
From kitchen nooks and bay windows to adding a new patio, fireplace, or backyard fire pit, small renovation projects can transform your living space into a dwelling that makes every holiday unforgettable.
