The pool is still open, and kids aren’t quite back in school yet, but fall is right around the corner. St. Mary’s County residents at The Apartments of Wildewood are lucky to have great temperatures and comfortable weather throughout the fall months. How can you start getting your space ready for the autumn months ahead?
Clean Out the Closet
While our closets boast plenty of space for your whole wardrobe, many people like to stash away seasonal clothing when they aren’t using it to keep things looking tidier. As you get your Saint Mary’s County apartment ready for the fall, start packing up summer things that you aren’t going to use anymore and unpacking light sweaters and transitional pieces. As you go through your closet, it’s also a great idea to keep a box of clothing that you no longer wear to donate.
Check the Thermostat
As summer starts to fade away and fall starts to arrive, St. Mary’s County will begin to experience cooler temperatures. If your thermostat is still programmed for early August in early September, you will be wasting money every month. Make sure you look at your thermostat and the weather every morning, as fall temperatures can vary up to 20° from one day to the next. On many fall days, you can just leave the windows open!
Update Your Décor
One of the most exciting parts of seasonal changes is updating your décor. Fall is all about warm tones like oranges, reds, yellows, and browns, and you can even add a bold accent with a color like navy or aqua. When you are preparing your St. Mary’s County apartment for the fall, remove the summer décor and start placing out fall décor. You can even purchase pumpkins or natural décor to bring the outside inside.
Fall is a great time to tidy up your living space, including:
- Changing smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector batteries
- Reversing ceiling fans
- Washing fall and winter bedding if you didn’t wash it before storing it
- Deep cleaning the kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom
Taking a bit of time to refresh your apartment home will help you enter this new season with enthusiasm and a fresh start.
