The leaves are changing, the air is getting crisper, and there’s a new surge of energy in the air. That means only one thing: it’s time for fall home renovations! Now that summer is over, you might be considering what to do with your old house before winter sets in. It can be hard to know where to start when renovating your home after such a long season. In this article, we will discuss some things you should consider when embarking on fall home renovations so that you can create an inviting space for yourself all year round.

Keeping an old house clean is no easy task.  However, with some time and effort, you can make it feel new again!  Here are some ideas of fall home renovations that will keep things fresh all year round:

1) Install a new front door

Renewing the exterior of your home is a great way to make it look new again.  A new door can update any house and provide you with years of use!

2) Upgrade your kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and an updated backsplash

A new kitchen is the perfect way to make your home feel fresh. You can create a space that feels like it belongs in an upscale magazine by updating all of these things!

3) Add some fall colors to the exterior of the house by painting the shutters or installing a fresh coat of paint on the outside of your home

Fall is a beautiful time of year and the perfect opportunity to add some color!  Painting your shutters will update them without breaking the bank, while adding a fresh coat of paint on everything from siding to doors can give you years-worth of curb appeal.

4) Replace old carpets with hardwood floors for added warmth during cold winter months

Have a mix of old carpet and hardwood flooring? Replacing the carpets with beautiful wood floors will make a world of difference in warmth!

5) Update outdated lighting fixtures in every room of your house

Even the smallest changes can make a big difference!  Updating old, outdated light fixtures with new ones not only makes them look great but also shines more natural light into your home.

6) Move furniture around to open up unused spaces and make rooms seem bigger than they are

Sometimes it’s easy to get stuck in a rut! A great way to update your home is by moving furniture around and de-cluttering.
