The end of summer is almost upon us and everyone in The Woodlands is gearing up for fall— back to school, end of summer vacations, and busier schedules. There’s one more task you can add to your to-do list before the dog days are through: home updates. Each season, new home updates are in order to prepare your home for what’s coming next. Here’s a list for August to help your home in The Woodlands get ready for fall.
Summer Plant Sale
Take advantage now of good deals on plants and flowers to prep your garden for autumn. Start planning new designs now and scouting stores for available inventory to spruce up your Woodlands home before the fall season.
Out with the Old
As with any season, now is a great time to throw out the old and unused to make room for the new and necessary. Go through your cabinets to clean out what hasn’t been used lately, clean out the garage, and here’s a tip: inspect your cord collection in the various rooms of your home. That means checking out chargers and cords for signs of wear, damage, or inflexibility. Anything that’s not in great condition, toss it and get new cords.
A great design idea for indoors is to create a gallery wall with frames in which you can switch out the images and artwork depending on the season. For instance, try a beach theme for summer with yellows and blues, a warm theme for fall with reds and oranges, and repeat for fall and spring. This is an easy way to show your home is ready for the new season by simply switching out photos and art.
Because we’re now into the dog days of summer, now is the time to get outside and work on the curb appeal of your Woodlands home. Texas homebuyers will really take note of this when the time comes to sell. Get out and spruce up chipping or faded paint, unruly landscaping, and replacing windows and doors if necessary. You can add value and appeal to your home by tending to them while the sun is out the longest.
Change of Color
Maybe you’re simply looking for a change of decor to prepare for fall. Color can really brighten up a space and get you excited for the new season of busy schedules and back to school. Add color to your entry or outdoor spaces with new drapes, bright rugs, pillows, and updated furniture.
