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!
Start at the front door. The colors of fall work well with the exterior of just about any
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! With 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’t
be afraid to dress up your tables to make your house look like a 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 cozy 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!
