The Creston News Advertiser reports that the coming months of fall may be a good time for a homeowner to reevaluate the current interior design of a residence and enact some modest changes to get ready for the new season.

The first step is to look at the foyer of the home and see if it needs changing. An interesting rug or some summer flowers can give the front hall a warm, inviting appearance.

Since kitchens are high-traffic areas, they may also require a fresh coat of paint more often than other rooms, according to the news source. High-quality paint, while more costly initially, can save money over time by not fading or cracking as quickly.

A family room can often feel overused or stale as well. Rather than painting it again, try using small, colorful decorations. Floor and throw pillows, beanbags and other minor furniture adjustments can make a room feel new.

Window treatments shouldn't go unnoticed. The vibrancy of pleated shades, which come in a rainbow of bright, unique varieties, can be ideal additions to a home. They will add color to window frames when drawn and, when opened, pleated shades fold neatly into the top of the window, so the entire view of the outdoors is available.
