Fall For These Autumn Home Staging Ideas


Autumn is such a beautiful time of year. The leaves are changing the scented candles are out on display and the temperature is just about right. This is the prime time to use these features to help sell your home! Here are a few tips for staging your home during the autumn months. Even if you aren’t looking to sell your home these tips can apply to decorating any home!

home. The neutral orange, browns and yellows can help make a front step or porch looks inviting. Stacking pumpkins is a recent craze this season that makes for a very cute look. Corn stalks can also be a very inexpensive touch to add depth and color to your front door. Nothing says welcome home more than a new welcome mat or sign waiting for a potential homeowner upon arrival.

The scents are out so light up the candles!
fallcandles.jpgWith Fall comes the great scents. From cinnamon, to pumpkin pie, if you walk down the isle of Yankee Candle you are bound to find some scents that interest you. Light up candles at least 30 minutes before an open house to allow the aroma to spread throughout the house. Light up a cookie scent in the kitchen and keep it fresh in the laundry space. This is a simple and homey touch that doesn’t take much effort.

Less is not always more. If you feel as though some of your rooms are starch looking don’falldinningroom.jpgt
be afraid to dress up your tables to make your house look like fallkitchen.jpga home. An autumn inspired centerpiece on your dining table
may brighten up your dining room. You can do the same to your kitchen to add a pop of color. As always, make sure not to overdo it just a few touches here and there will give that ‘homey’ feel you are looking for.

Light the fire and set the scene. If you have a fireplace make sure to light it up. The cozyfallmantle.jpg feel will give the home owners a glimpse into the chilly months ahead letting them know that things may not be as bad this winter with a fire place back at home waiting for them. If you have a fireplace that tends to blend in try to decorate it a bit to draw attention to it. There are tons of autumn mantle ideas out there to spice up your living space! Hop on Pinterest for some ideas!

Fall is only here for a brief time so take advantage of the colors, fresh scents and homey feel. Autumn decor sure is a fan favorite and is bound to appeal to anyone that walks through your front door!

The Two Best Ways to Save On Your Renovations

Whether you plan on selling or simply want to keep up with the current trends, a remodel may be the best thing for you. However, to make sure you get the most out of your improvements you will want to keep a few things in mind.

Take a look at our top two best ways to get more for your money.


countertops.jpgIn the 1990’s every piece of linoleum looked the same. Fast forward a couple of decades and you can now spend hours in a home improvement store just staring at tile floors. The options are endless which means there are so many ways to save. In the past few years, companies have really stepped it up with ‘imitation’ material products. There is now laminate that looks like real wood, and quartz counters that can appear to be marble. There are so many options for picking materials that still look top of the line without having to stretch your budget.


Some of the worst decisions are those that are made on the whim. This means you should put a good amount of time and consideration into deciding which rooms to renovate in houseonmoneyyour home. Look at the long term. If you plan to live in your home for 5+ years then you can go into more elaborate designs, picking out exactly what you want and what suits your family. If you are going into a remodel with the end goal of getting the highest price out of your home sale then you will find your priorities may be a little different.

By sitting down and deciding what your true end goal is in the remodel you will have a better view on what exactly ‘needs’ to be done and what you ‘want’ done. You may ‘want’ that marble counter top, which is just fine if you plan to enjoy your home for many years to come. However, if you ‘need’ to get the most out of your remodel because you plan to sell next year…then maybe that laminate look-a-like is the better option. Plan ahead, make educated decisions, and listen to your gut. By doing so you will end up with a home that you are proud of. Whether you are selling or staying, you want to be able to take pride in your home!
