As the seasons shift and fall approaches, it's a prime time to consider revamping your living spaces. Certain interior design projects are particularly well-suited for planning before the cooler weather sets in. Today, we'll highlight the types of interior design projects that are ideal to start planning before or at the beginning of fall, ensuring that your spaces are transformed and ready to welcome the new season in style.
Kitchen Renovations: Fall is a popular time for gatherings and entertaining. If you've been considering a kitchen renovation, starting the planning and design process now is a wise decision. A kitchen revamp can involve layout changes, appliance upgrades, construction and cabinetry trades - not to mention selecting material, furniture and decorative lighting. By initiating this project early, you can ensure that your kitchen is both functional and visually appealing, ready to host holiday meals and cozy gatherings.
This Kitchen was designed with a new layout complete with new appliances and given an upgraded look with herringbone laid tiles, beveled subway tile backsplash, dark base cabinets and white uppers for a modern traditional style.
The sooner you can finalize the kitchen layout and your appliance needs the better. You want to have the most options when shopping for appliances to suit the look, budget, and availability considerations. The closer to the holidays, the more delays and less stock comes into play. Also, it never hurts to act on a sale knowing exactly what you need.
Fireplace and Mantel Makeovers: As the temperatures drop, a fireplace becomes the heart of the home. If you have a fireplace or mantel, consider planning a makeover before fall. Whether it's a fresh coat of paint, new tile surrounds, enhancing the mantel's decor, and perhaps a new insert, starting now gives you time to create a cozy focal point that adds warmth and a beautiful focal point to your living space.

Outdoor Upgrades: If your home could use new windows and doors before the cold weather hits, time is quickly running out. Same for any siding and roofing updates. Along with the visual appeal, improving the energy efficiency has never been more important. Redesigning your exterior now allows you to potentially squeeze those updates in the schedule before the snow really starts to fly.

Bedroom Retreats: Fall is synonymous with coziness and comfort. Transforming your bedroom into a retreat that complements the season and your style requires thoughtful planning. From selecting warm-toned bedding and drapery to exploring lighting options and furnishings that create an inviting ambiance, starting the planning process now allows you to curate a bedroom haven where you can unwind during the cooler months.

Guest Room Upgrades: If you're expecting guests for the holiday season, now is the time to plan any upgrades for your guest room. Whether it's a fresh coat of paint, new bedding, or adding functional storage, early planning ensures that your guests will have a comfortable and stylish space to enjoy during their stay.
