Boost your home’s seasonal curb appeal with the right fall decorations. Whether you’re looking to decorate your interior, exterior or both, you can choose from several types of fall decorations to dazzle your home with hues of yellow, orange and red.
Types of Indoor Fall Decorations
Wreaths: Fall wreaths
are some of the most popular indoor fall decorations
you can use throughout your home. Position a large wreath above your fireplace mantel to give your living room an eye-catching focal point, or hang a small wreath in front of a framed mirror to provide a striking accent. For an unexpected look, experiment with using a wreath as a centerpiece on your dining room table.
Garlands are another common indoor fall decoration. Make a bold statement in your home and loop a garland strand around your stairway railing. You can also add warm autumn colors into your bedroom or guest room by wrapping garland around your headboard or bedpost. If you want to make your strand longer, several garlands come with hooks and/or loops to accommodate your needs.
Aside from wreaths and garlands, there are other tasteful and smaller fall decorations that can also work well in your home. Include glass pumpkins and fall candles on your dining room table to lend your Thanksgiving dinner a more festive look. Sitting scarecrows make the perfect addition to any of your fall home decorations. Simply place them on a mantel or table to instantly bring life to your space.
Types of Outdoor Fall Decorations
When it comes to outdoor fall decorations
, door mats are some of the easiest ways to bring the spirit of the season to your home’s exterior. Most door mats are also made of coir, which has coarse fibers that help scrape snow, mud and other debris off your shoes.
Wreaths and Garlands:
In addition to indoor use, wreaths and garlands are also ideal outdoor autumn decorations. Make a lasting impression on family and friends by placing a vibrant wreath on your front door, then finish the look by draping a matching garland strand around the perimeter.
Step up your outdoor autumn decorations with straw bales. These harvest decorations provide a rustic look to your yard, porch or entryway. Once the season is over, don’t throw away the bales. The straw material can be reused as mulch.
From the porch to the bedroom, your home can be transformed into an inviting and festive autumn oasis with a wide variety of indoor and outdoor fall decorations. Get even more inspiration for fall home decorations with our How to Decorate a Pumpkin guide
