Move over spring cleaning, the fall months are a great time to deep clean and freshen up your home, especially with the holidays quickly approaching. Whether it is time to put away the summer gear and decor or you are looking to rebalance and create a sense of calmness throughout your living spaces, there is no time like fall to spruce up your space.
Here are a few great ideas to get you started on your cleaning and organizing journey.
Declutter and move items to storage you want to hold on to.
Wanting to try a more minimalistic approach or simply need to make room for holiday decor? Make a game plan to tackle the rooms that need a bit of help and pack up any items that you want to keep. Temporary storage solutions are a great idea for items that you will need to bring back to your home come springtime. Make sure to label what room the items belong in as well as a general idea of the contents of the box so you can quickly identify the items later on.
Give your existing furniture a quick update by adding in some fall colors to brighten the room.
There is no need to replace your furniture if you are looking for ways to freshen up your home. A simple way to transition from summer into fall is by simply adding in more autumnal inspired colors like oranges, darker yellows, and warmer fabrics like tweed.
For more drastic changes, consider swapping out rugs each season. We recommend sticking with neutral colors throughout the year, but to add more richness to your home, choose a thicker pile rug during the fall and winter months in a darker neutral color.
Add some festive scents to your atmosphere.
Nothing screams fresh quite like scent, but you don’t have to go out and buy chemical-laden products just to achieve the fresh smells you desire. If you are looking for fall-inspired scents, then consider having the ingredients on hand for a simmering potpourri. Here are some great options that use natural ingredients that you most likely already have in your cupboards. These simmering potpourris evoke a sense of warmth throughout your entire home and create positive vibes for all who visit.
No matter how you freshen up your home this fall, even if it means moving, then let Fox Moving and Storage be there to help you every step of the way.
