Get your home Autumn ready

Get your home Autumn ready in 9 simple steps 

 

 

1 – Deep clean your house

Deep cleans aren’t just for Spring – Autumn is another great time to do this!

Giving your house a good once over, wiping away any cobwebs, wiping down the skirting boards and cleaning and re-organising the cupboards will get you feeling more prepared for the colder months.

 

2 – Bring your outdoor furniture in

Make sure you look after that outdoor furniture that you treasure so much in the summer months. Be sure to store it away in a shed or garage in the colder months. If you don’t have anywhere to keep it stored, make sure you have a waterproof cover for it to keep it hidden from the elements! You’ll thank yourself when the sun comes back around. 

 

3 – Clean out your oven

With Christmas and the festive season approaching – you’ll want to make sure your oven is spick and span ready for all the cooking and entertaining you’ll be doing.

 

4 – Mow the lawn

Not the most obvious one but wait until your grass has reached a good length and give it one last cut for the winter.

 

5 – Test your devices

As the darker nights draw in – we start to use our heating and lights more. It’s a good idea to make sure all your devices and lights are working, and that batteries are fitted in smoke detectors!

 

6 – Change up the Scent 

Oranges, juniper berries, cinnamon, vanilla and rosehip make great autumn smells. Use candles, potpourri or diffusers to make your home smell amazing and cosy.

 

7 – Get some new cushions and throws

Adding some new cushions or throws to your sofas can really transform the room ready for the new season. Having cosy throws will also be perfect for snuggling up on colder evenings.

You can also tie it all in with your festive colour scheme!

 

8 – Check your drains!

With autumn guaranteed to be wet and windy a lot of the time it’s worth you should making sure that rainwater downspouts are clear of obstructions and direct water away from foundations, walkways, and driveways.

 

9 – Sort out your Movie/box set selection

With most people spending a lot longer inside in the evenings,  it’s worth sorting out your favourite movies or box sets ready for a few movie marathons! What better to do on a cold and raining evening.

Get under your cosy throw, grab a hot chocolate and a few snacks and your ready for Autumn!
