    Preparing Your Living Room for Fall: Decluttering Tips and Ideas

    As the fall season approaches, it’s important to declutter your living room to make space for new seasonal decor and ensure a cohesive and updated look. Before introducing your fall decorations, take the time to bid farewell to your summer decor. By simplifying your living space, you create a harmonious backdrop to embrace the beauty of fall decor. Experts suggest decluttering certain items from your living room before the fall season.

    Professional organizer Reem Elkady recommends examining your living room and deciding what needs to stay and what needs to go. Consider whether each item serves a purpose or simply takes up space. If it doesn’t spark joy or have a purpose, it’s time to let it go. Donate unwanted items to a local charity or organization to help others in need while freeing up space in your home.

    Seasonal decorations play a significant role in keeping your home clutter-free and staying on theme. Laura Price, owner of The Home Organisation, advises checking your decorative items and deciding which ones should be displayed, stored, or donated/recycled/ thrown away. Swapping out seasonal decorations every three months keeps your home looking fresh without overwhelming it with clutter.

    Christina Giaquinto, a professional organizer, emphasizes the importance of decluttering decorations that might be outdated or damaged. Take the time to sort through all your decorations, donate the ones in good condition but no longer wanted, and discard broken ones. This way, you can buy replacements or new decorations without facing holiday price hikes.

    Additionally, lightweight throws and pillows should be decluttered to make room for fall alternatives. Jonathan Faccone, founder of Halo Homebuyers, suggests replacing lightweight throws with heavier, warmer options for added warmth in the fall season. The same applies to pillows, as heavier and more textured options provide better comfort and insulation against the cold.

    Incorporating seasonal colors and designs through throws and pillows is a seamless way to decorate your living room for fall. Consider using warm-toned throws and cozy pillows to achieve a comfortable and inviting atmosphere.

    Preparing your living room for fall decor starts with decluttering and creating a clean canvas. By following these tips and ideas, you can create a refreshed and in-season living space that welcomes the beauty of fall.
