The summer heat may still be sweltering, but the leaves with be turning and the mornings will be crisp before we know it. We all love fall, and the joy that it brings; the kiddos going back to school, a break from the heat, and of course, pumpkin everything! But, how do you prepare your home for fall? Luckily, the gang at Homes.com (and a few friends) created a complete guide to help you get ready in no time flat!
Inside Your Home
The days of light and airy fabrics are fleeting, and soon you’ll be trading them out for cozy blankets and more! Getting your home ready for fall means more than just swapping out your curtains, or getting your HVAC serviced so you can stay warm and snuggly all during the colder months.
The Exterior of Your Home
The leaves are turning beautiful colors and gracefully falling from trees, and consequently suffocating your lawn. Yikes! Preparing the exterior of your home is just as important as the interior of your home; from shutting off sprinkler systems to tightening railings, the fun never ends. Plus, did we mention that preparing the exterior of your home for changing seasons and temperatures can help you save money? It’s okay, thank us later.
Evaluating Your Yard and Curb Appeal
One of the most visible parts of your home and the first impression it makes to potential buyers is curb appeal! Adding simple and inexpensive touches, like light fixtures, combine elements of ambiance and safety (since it does get dark out sooner). Be sure to take care of necessary pruning to help your yard thrive in the spring, and even get a head start on planting bulbs; which will make you look like an expert homeowner in no time flat!
Getting your home ready for the colder months ahead and seem like a daunting chore; follow our guide, and it can be done in no time flat! Want to print our entire guide and hang it in your garage?
