Fall is right around the corner,
meaning that it’s time to get your interior decor and flooring in-line for the changing of seasons.
We’ve put together this list to help you make an easy transition from summer into fall and mention some things to consider when purchasing flooring for your Flagstaff home.
Pick your Fall Color Palette
The best way to transform your home this fall is by following your favorite fall color palette. Home stores are all turning their inventory from summer to fall but have a wide range of color palettes to choose from.
We recommend picking your favorite palette and keep in mind fixed colors that are permanently or semi-permanently part of your home. This could include faucets, wall paint, light fixtures, furniture, and more! Take a look around your home before coming back with pieces that clash with the overall interior design of your home and bring your chosen color palette with you to avoid choosing new clashing pieces.
Here are some of our favorite fall 2019 color palettes:
Keep it clean with waterproof fall flooring
From the time monsoon season hits to the last bit of snow melts away, our flooring pays for the moisture we bring in on our shoes, dripping from umbrellas, and on our furry friend’s paws. Before replacing your flooring, think about what type might be the best for your Flagstaff home year-round.
Vinyl Waterproof Flooring:
Want to upgrade your flooring and love the look of hardwood? Did you know you can get flooring that looks like hardwood but is easier to install, more durable, and waterproof for Northern Arizona winters? Waterproof luxury vinyl planks are an excellent substitute for your family.
Stone Tile Flooring:
Love a rustic look for your entryway or mudroom? Opt-in for stone tile that hides dirt and mud, doesn’t warp after being soaked in water, and isn’t affected by cold weather. Stone tile is easy to clean and is extremely durable to all conditions. Have a fireplace in the living room? Stone tile is a perfect accent for your fireplace or fire stove, is easy to clean, won’t warp like hardwood flooring, and won’t burn like carpet.
Do you prefer carpet flooring in most of your home? Even if you don’t have pets, pet-friendly carpets are engineered to better handle moisture, stains and odor. Keep in mind that getting neutral colored carpet will allow for easier interior design seasonal transitions.
Swap your bedding
Chances are you swap out your light-weight down comforter from summer with a heavier weight option once the temperature starts dropping in Northern Arizona, so why not change out the duvet cover and the sheets while you’re at it? Change the entire mood of any bedroom in your house by swapping out the bedding.
Reminder: Keep the fall color palette you selected in mind when picking out your new fall bedding.
