If you had a chance to read our previous blog, then you already know about a few of the best home improvement projects to capture the magic of autumn like never before. Keep reading to learn about a few more home improvement projects that will help you harness everything you love about the fall in your home.

#4. Make your home smarter with a programmable thermostat.

These days, you can control almost anything and everything in your home with your smartphone. Upgrading things, like your thermostat, will not only add convenience to your life, but it will also help to make your home more efficient and comfortable. With a programmable thermostat, you can make sure that your house is warm and cozy when you get home every day, and that it’s cooler when you’re at work or asleep at night. If you forget to turn your heater down when you leave, you can even use your smartphone to adjust your thermostat from the office.

#5. Set the mood with dimmer switches.

The lighting in your home has a huge impact on how your home looks and feels. However, you need lighting for different things, and you won’t always get the light you need for every activity with one light. For example, you probably wouldn’t want the same level of light that you would for reading a book as you would for watching a movie. You don’t necessarily need to redo all of the lighting in your home, and you’d be surprised at what a difference a simple dimmer switch can make. With a dimmer switch, you get the maximum number of uses out of a single light source, and you can set the perfect mood in your home for any occasion.

#6. Build a reading nook.

The summer is the ideal time of the year for outdoor activities, like shooting hoops or tossing the ball around, but indoor activities are much more commonplace in the fall and winter. One of the best indoor activities for your brain and your entertainment is reading, and there’s no better way to enjoy your favorite indoor activity while adding some comfort and coziness to your home than by building a reading nook.
