It’s true. The Pumpkin Spice Latte is back, and we all know what that means. Fall is imminent. Soon the leaves will be turning and the days will become crisp; firewood and baked apples will permeate the air. In short, summer is drawing to a close and it’s time to prepare your St. Mary’s apartment rental for the fun fall season ahead. There are a few different things that you can do to get your home ready for fall. As with any season, though, it’s always important to start with a bit of an overhaul.
Tips for Preparing for Fall
Fall Cleaning – We know that fall cleaning isn’t really a “thing” like spring cleaning is, but it’s just as important. It’s easy to accumulate during the summer, plus, you need extra space in the fall to break out more blankets and bulkier clothes. Putting away summer clothes, cleaning all of the things that have been ignored during the summer, and reorganizing closets can help you prepare for fall. Once you’ve gotten it all cleaned up and donated whatever you find you don’t want anymore, it’s time to pull out the blankets and sweaters!
Decorating – Nothing will put you in the mood for fall as much as decorating for it. Pull out any fall inspired decorations that you have stored in your closet. Think orange, brown, yellow, and red for fall colors. Put down some rugs, put some throws on the back of your couch, and do a little outdoor decorating. It’s always fun to put a scarecrow or pumpkin outside your door to get a little fall lift when you get home from work. Putting fall scents in your home is also a great way to change it up a little. Try potpourri or flameless candles in pumpkin, apple pie, or cinnamon.
Get ready for lazy days – You know the ones we’re talking about. The ones where you curl up by the fire with a hot chocolate and put in your favorite movie rather than brave the chilly weather. Sometimes those days are what makes fall such a great season, especially if you love being in your apartment anyway. Board games and healthy fall snacks make a great addition to your place for those cool days. You can also check out some cool craft and DIY projects for fall on our Pinterest to help you enjoy your fall days at Apartments of Wildewood. It’s also important to check your heat to make sure that it’s ready to handle the cooler fall days — if you’re having any problems, be sure to contact maintenance!
