- STAY SAFE: Before turning on the heat for the first time this season, be sure to check all your home safety devices such as smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, to ensure the batteries are charged and they are working property.
- EDUCATE YOURSELF: It’s not only important to take safety precautions in your home, it’s also important to know what to do in case of an emergency. Check out local workshops and events near you and take family and friends along. Knowledge is power!
- BRIGHTEN UP: With shorter fall and winter days, it’s always a good idea to revamp your lighting options. Choose something that isn’t too bright or too dim, but a perfect middle option. After all, a well decorated home must be seen!
- FALL REFRESH: No need to break the bank giving your décor a fall update. Simple additions like festive wreaths, accent pillows and blankets in fall hues, and scented candles will make your home feel cozy and seasonal.
