Fall is here! Getting your homes ready for the new season shouldn’t be a hassle or costly. That’s why SC Johnson recently came out with ideas, home care tips and inexpensive ways to create a true fall feeling in your home.
When Fall rolls around, I like to create a different feel in our home. For me, it’s all about comfort and warmth during the cold months and SC Johnson has some great ideas on how to re-create your home a little without breaking the bank!
They provide tips on how to Lighten up your home, create a more inviting bathroom, decorate for the holidays, and more!! I especially love the tips on how to give my child’s room a little lift:
Looking to perk up your child’s room this fall? Check out these steps to redecorate your child’s room:
Start with color: Did you know that changing a wall color can affect mood? In fact, you might consider colors that balance the extremes in your child’s personality. For example, an overly active child might be soothed by cool blues or pale pastels. If your child tends to be disorganized, white walls scale down the effect of visual clutter. And if you want to give your child a lift, intense rich colors will create drama and energy.
Pump up the texture: Kids love to feel textures—that’s why cuddly teddy bears and stuffed animals are so beloved. Invest in a soft flannel sheet or chenille throw for the bed. Or maybe a fun animal throw rug for the floor. Of course, as you choose fabrics for your kid’s room, think about how easy or difficult they are to clean.
Reinvent the chalkboard: It’s amazing how easy it is to turn an entire wall into a chalkboard. To create a bold canvas for your child’s creativity, all you need is chalkboard paint, which now comes in a variety of colors. There are even some homemade recipes for making chalkboard paint that you can find online (although I haven’t tried them out). Kids can use their newfound canvas to make drawings, invent puzzles, leave notes, play math games and generally just have fun.
