The change of seasons is a good reason to refresh your home décor, and fall is the perfect time to update your bedroom with warmth and coziness in mind. From your window coverings to your bedding, quick changes will get you ready for the cooler weather. Here’s how to transition a bedroom to fall.
Swap Out Bedding
Speaking of bedding, change your sheets to warmer choices, such as microfiber or flannel. Add a blanket or quilt to your bed, and consider a throw blanket that will a sense of luxury and can be pulled up when needed. You might also choose richer colors.
Summer is time to let in the sun and let your space shine. When fall comes around, you might need a little more warmth, especially if your windows are a little drafty. Add drapes or curtains over your shades or blinds. You can choose a color that complements your bedding or adds a new texture to the room.
The days are shorter in fall and winter, so make sure you have layers of lighting in your room. Use a lamp on your nightstand. Update overhead lighting with a chandelier or statement fixture. And consider using candles in your space. Be sure to extinguish them before you go to bed or choose the realistic battery operated models available today.
Use Fall Scents
One of the best parts of the fall season is the variety of scents associated with it. If you use candles in your space, consider scented options, such as cinnamon or pumpkin spice. You can also add scent with a diffuser or large bowl of potpourri.
Bring in a Rug
Warm up things underfoot by using a rug. Your feet will appreciate the warm landing in the morning, and a rug visually warms a room, as well. Choose a thick pile, such as shag, which will have the added benefit of providing insulation.
