Home Improvement Projects for This Autumn

It is that time of the year again when the summer holidays are coming to an end, and we all start to prepare ourselves to cosy up at home for the next colder months.

Part of this ritual includes rethinking our home before Christmas comes. Autumn is a perfect time to make some interior design changes that you did not have time to do or think about it in the first semester.

But what can we consider to be a good home improvement at this moment? It will depend on your budget, time, and space. So, here are some of my ideas to inspire you all.

Use Natural Materials

There is nothing more timeless than go for organic designs. From timber to linen, there is always a personalised piece of furniture or accessories that will stand out in your room.

I am in love with vintage wooden tables for quite a while now. It must be a rectangular piece that is consistent and adds to the character that will look in any part of the house.

Autumn vibe flooring, anyone?

I am not going to lie to you- Autumn is my favourite season. I am not quite keen on summer, and I tend to complain of winter since I have moved to the UK. But did you notice that Autumn days are perfect everywhere you go?

When I think about Autumn – I think wooden flooring. Don’t you? Maybe it is a random thought. The fact is that I love a solid wooden flooring, and I think that every room of your home would be great with any type of solid wood flooring.

It is practical, elegant, and easy to install. Besides, it is another piece of green living to complement the rooms of your home. Being environmentally friendly when it comes to home improvement is a trendy that will be here for good.

Not to mention that having fluffy a cat made me realise that I hate carpets, anyways.

Create a Colourful Space

It is not because the colder days will always ask for warmer colours that you can’t flirt with a more colourful space. Don’t worry. It doesn’t mean that everything will need to have mustard or pumpkin tones.

Find a space at your home that deserves a good transformation and just go for it.

Even if you just decided to paint the doors, it is going to already have a quite good upgrade mood with it.

Hygge it Up

I know you may wonder if the Hygge lifestyle is still something. Yep. It pretty much still works for me. But it’s just because I always was minimalist, anyway. The fact is that the Danish word that became synonymous of cosy living up style, is still quite appealing for most of us.

You can find plenty of inspiration to create a Danish look at home, or simply add your personal decor touches to this to create a lovely and cosy ambient to each room of your beloved home.
