Preparing your Home for Fall

With the colors of your yard changing into deeper fall colors, it is a good time to start redecorating so that your house matches the colors outside. While there are plenty of expensive decorations that are available, there are many other decorating ideas that can save you money. Keep these 3 simple inexpensive decorating tips in mind to help get your home ready for fall.

  • Less is more. Although the designs that you see in magazines may look nice, you probably do not need all of the matching accessories to take over your dining room table. If you find a design you really like, splurge a little on one piece, such as napkin rings or candle holders, and use other pieces that you already have to complete the look without overwhelming your table.
  • Think organic. Small pumpkins and gourds are very inexpensive and are a great way to add a bit of fall throughout your home. They come in all different shapes, sizes, and colors which will allow you to create a unique look throughout your home. Painting them with a shiny lacquer paint will help them last longer, ensuring that you do not have to buy new gourds or pumpkins every week.
  • Create a smell. To give your home an inviting fall smell, you can save money by warming lemon peels and a few herbs in water that you let simmer on the stove. There are also plenty of candles that are available that will give your home the fall smell you are looking for. Make sure that you are always mindful about where you place the candles to ensure that children are not able to play with them.

Fall is also a good time to look over all of your insurance policies to ensure that you have the most comprehensive coverage possible. Contact the insurance experts at The Insurance Shop for all of your home insurance, auto insurance, and umbrella insurance needs throughout Minnesota.
