As the days get shorter and colder, and with Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner, fall is definitely well underway. Even if you hate the colder weather or perhaps you normally don’t enjoy the autumn, why not embrace change this year and get your home all cozy and ready for the winter season? As the leaves fall off the trees, and you snuggle up to a warming cup of eggnog with close family friends, there’s nothing more satisfying than enjoying the season from the comfort of your winter-ready home. Even if you live in a small apartment, or share a chaotic house with your family and children, why not get the whole family involved and enjoy preparing your home for fall together?
Fall is the perfect season for wrapping up warm and enjoying your living space. You may even have heard of the recent Danish living trend, Hygge – which embraces the darker months by sharing your home and table with family and friends. So why not make like a Dane and ready your household for fall? Invest in a few more candles and stock up your log store, get some cozy throws and blankets for your family room and make sure to use soft cotton sheets in your bedrooms so that your entire family can enjoy the season. Just making a few small changes need not cost a fortune, and your home will soon be autumn ready in no time.
Clean up inside and out
It’s essential to winter prep your home to make sure you are prepared for any cold spells or adverse weather. Why not start outside, by cleaning up all those wet, damp leaves from your driveway and clear your gutters to make sure that they are working properly and efficiently? Check your roof tiles to make sure that your home is fully prepared against the elements, and be sure to replace any cracked or damaged tiles.
You will want to make sure that your home is ready inside too. Why not check that all your pipes are well insulated and be sure to drain your radiators to make sure that your central heating keeps you and your family all warm and toasty this fall? Seasonal change is a great chance to declutter, too, so get your winter wardrobe ready by bringing your think coats and boots out of storage. Why not give your home a deep clean too? Pristine House Cleaning can help you get your home clean and sparkling in no time at all. Just making these few small changes will make sure your home is ready both inside and out.
All those autumnal colors and winter recipes are great to share and enjoy with your family and relatives this fall. Why not bake some oatmeal cookies or whip up some pumpkin pie? This season is ideal for getting your kids more crafty too – from paper chains and table decorations for Thanksgiving to creating your own homemade Christmas cards, get creative and enjoy one of the most beautiful times of the year.
