If this year has done anything positive it has to be how much time people are spending at home and wanting to make their home feel great!
That’s what inspired me to think about the fall decorations that are in my home and how I want my home to look this season.
Getting your decorating sorted is going to make you feel better about your home and it’s great to change up the decorations, it helps to make us love the rooms that we see every day a little bit more.
Decorating Your Home For Fall
When it comes to decorating your home for the different seasons it’s a great idea to start with what you’ve got.
Dig out all the fall decorations that you have got stored in your home and start by going through the items you already have.
You will need to make some decisions before we move forward:
- What to keep
- The items that you no longer like but aren’t trash
- Broken items that need throwing away
- Any rubbish
Once you have broken down the categories you can see what you have, this will help you decide what you need to get in order to make your house feel like fall.

What To Do With Items You Don’t Like
This can be easy, but you do have a couple of choices to make. You can give them away to friends or family who want these items, don’t force anybody to take anything.
Or you can try and sell the items, there are many places where you can do this for free, and most areas have a free Facebook group where you can list items for sale.
If no one wants them and you can’t sell them you can always donate to a charity shop near you.

With the changing season, comes the question of where to put the seasonal items in your home.
Do you fill up every room or do you just sprinkle a touch here and there?
This is going to be a personal preference, but I always think less is more!
So I would go with a few items in the family room, the front of the home, or just inside the door, and maybe one or two more items depending on the number of rooms in your home.
