It's almost that time of year again. September 22 marks the first official day of the fall season, and with this seasonal transition comes the perfect opportunity to update your home decor. So, if you're looking to give your home a seasonal makeover, consider the following fall decorating tips.
Paint the Front Door
The front door says a lot about your home. Unfortunately, though, it's also an element that's overlooked by homeowners. Rather than replacing your front door, however, consider giving it a fresh coat of paint. Adding a new coat of paint to your front door will revitalize its appearance, helping you create a more festive fall decor. And you can even go one step further by decorating your front door with a festive wreath.
Few decorative accessories offer the same level of versatility as candles. Even if you don't burn them, you can use candles to add color to various rooms in your home. With fall right around the corner, for instance, a fun way to decorate your home is to include fall-colored candles in the living room and bathrooms.
When choosing candles, however, it's recommended that you stick with all-natural, unscented candles. The problem with scented candles is that they contain a plethora of harmful chemicals, many of which promote indoor air pollution.
You can also create your own artwork to use in your home. If you have a knack for painting or do-it-yourself crafts, consider using these items to decorate your home. You don't need any formal training or experience; just grab some paint and a canvas and let your imagination do the rest. Assuming you use fall colors -- orange, red, brown -- you can create brilliant works of art that are perfect for the fall season. And if you have any left over, you can always give them to friends or family members as gifts.
When was the last time that you changed your table settings? If it's been a while, don't worry because you aren't alone. Most homeowners rarely, if ever, change their table settings -- and that's okay. With that said, you can create more festive fall decor in your home by using fall elements in your table settings. In addition to fall colors, for instance, consider using a fall-themed centerpiece with decorative berries and flowers on your dining table.
