Autumn is upon us and there’s no better time to embark on a little home improvement. And we’re not talking just renovations, either. You don’t need to spend a fortune on a top-to-bottom remodel to get your home ready for the new season. There are plenty of small things you can do to personalize your home and get it closer to looking like your dream space. Here are a few tips for how to give your home that personal touch right in time for the last quarter of 2020.
Tip #1: Mood Lighting
There’s no better way to set the mood in your home than with some fabulous lighting. Adding new lighting to your space is one of the fastest and easiest ways to update it in time for the fall season. Try installing LED lighting in the corner of a kitchen countertop or try a multi-color LED light strip behind your television and watch as bold shades come to life while watching your favorite shows and movies. You can even install smart dimmer switches throughout your home and control your lighting through the convenience of your phone. From bold pink lights for girl’s rooms to purple, green, or orange lighting right on par with the spooky season, getting creative with lighting is a great way to get in the mood for autumn.
Tip #2: Paint Party
Tired of drab walls that lack that “pop”? This is an easy fix. Whether you choose a simple accent wall or a floor-to-ceiling paint job throughout your entire home, a paint party is the perfect way to kick your season into high gear. Brighten up your space with a soft grey shade or choose a bold white and make it your own. You can even ditch the paint in favor of an artsy wallpaper to put a unique touch to any and every room.
Tip #3: Cool Cabinetry
You don’t have to be stuck with the same cabinetry your house came with. If you’re in need of a fall refresh, don’t hesitate to explore ways to up the cool factor on your cabinetry. Swapping out handles for gold or silver metal hardware, painting your cabinets an entirely new shade, or even filling your cabinets with fun, printed contact paper can serve as an easy, affordable way to modernize your home and make it feel more like your own.
Tip #4: Perk Up Your Patio
The fall season is prime time for some outdoor relaxation. BBQs, bonfires, and breezy morning coffees on your patio can all help you feel refreshed and reinvigorated. That’s why it’s important that you make your patio space YOUR space. You can personalize your patio by planting colorful flowers and plants, investing in some comfortable patio furniture, and adding special little touches that will make fall outdoor lounging much more enjoyable.
Tip #5: Custom Countertops
A lot of homeowners assume new countertops are costly. It’s true – they can be. But there are also other ways to give your countertops a makeover. Peel-and-stick backsplash, for example, is a great way to make a big difference in the way your kitchen looks without a big budget. You can also cover up your current countertops with tile or revamp it with a fresh layer of paint or special countertop coating. A little creativity goes a long way when livening up your home for fall!
