Inviting Home Decor For Fall

If you are considering redecorating your home or feel like your home needs a facelift, you may be unsure of the best place to start. Fall is considered the “best time” to redecorate your home but what makes this time of year the best time to decorate? Weston Dean Custom Homes, a premier New Braunfels custom homebuilder, shares why fall is the ideal time to get creative with your home décor.

First, fall makes a great time of year to decorate because lets face it- who doesn’t like the atmosphere of fall? When the heat of summer finally subsides and the weather begins to get to a comfortable cold, most people feel the urge to go pick the perfect pumpkin and fill their home with all of the wonderful aromas of fall, like a freshly baked pie.

People also like fall because it is all about comfort. Fall goes hand in hand with coziness and it is the perfect time of year to gather around the fire with your family. Who doesn’t want to create great memories with their family cozied up to a fire with hot chocolate, warm blankets and a movie? Packing away your summer clothes for cozy sweaters is a welcomed change and staying in is a nice change to relax after the craziness and traveling summer can bring.

Fall is also the perfect time to warm up your home to make everyone feel welcome as you have friends and family over for holiday meals and parties. From Thanksgiving to New Years, chances are your home might see a lot of guests come through it. If this is the case, make them feel at home with a cozy fall atmosphere with soothing candles and smells of fall. Making your home feel warm is also good for having a special dinner at home with your spouse as well.

What makes decorating your home during the fall even better is that it can be done on a budget. You don’t need to break the bank in order to create a warm and inviting atmosphere of fall in your home. From pinecones, leaves, nuts, and sticks from your backyard, a lot of fall accessories can be found in and around your home already. The best part of fall decorating is that a lot of it can be free! Also, the closer you get to Thanksgiving the more you’ll find stores having huge sales on their fall décor. An even better reason to brighten your home up this fall with new home décor accents.

How to pick the best wall decor if selling your home

Are you in the process of or planning to sell your home before years end? If so, you may already be taking inventory of what you need to change in your home, how you need to de-clutter, and be searching up on the latest tips and tricks for how to make your home sell faster on the market. Weston Dean Custom Homes, a premier for Boerne custom home builder, shares how you can change up and pick the right wall art to sell your home.

Taking down family pictures and wall décor that represents your family is one of the first things most homeowners know to do when it comes time to sell their home. Experts say when selling a home, it is best to make the home as neutral as possible in order to give prospective buyers a blank canvas they can see themselves moving into.

Taking down a lot of the art and décor on your wall will undoubtedly leave you with a bunch of blank space you need to fill. So, what art on the wall is best to showcase when trying to sell your home?

If you aren’t sure what type of art to put in each room, take a cue from the room itself. What is the purpose of the room you are looking for art in? if you are looking for a piece of wall art for a kitchen, then choose something that can stem off of that theme. For example, wine glasses or a café scene are great compliments to any kitchen. If you are looking for inspiration for a bedroom, try a black and white images of flowers, or a sleeping abstract to represent calmness.

When selling your home, it is best to choose wall art that will show off the lifestyle of your home’s architecture and neighborhood. It is a great way to bring flair to your home and give it style when showing.

Abstract art is a great way to bring color and uniqueness to a home when selling it. Since there is no right or wrong answer to abstract art, you really can’t go wrong no matter what buyer walks through your doors. It is an inoffensive way to add color and dimension to your home.

Landscape art is another great option in wall décor, as natural scenery from mountains, to forests, trees, flowers or rivers are both peaceful but also neutral when it comes to buyer taste. You can use realistic or abstract landscape art, which works great in living rooms, family rooms or bedrooms.

Lettering is another unique and cool way to highlight a home and be used as art. You could spell out something using letting in a room, such as “relax” spelled out in a bathroom or “laundry” in a laundry room.

Lastly, maps are another great piece of art to hang in most any room of a home. Depending on the style of your home, you can use traditional maps or a more modern version to hang in a family room, den or office.

Investing in simple art work pieces for the walls of your home can make a big difference when it comes to how your home shows to buyers.
