Fall Décor Ideas to Transform Your Charleston’s Home Exterior



Fall is right around the corner in Charleston. This is the perfect time to focus on your home’s curb appeal and add a seasonal touch to it. There are many things you can do to transform your Charleston home and make it the envy of your neighbors. To do that, here are just a few fall décor ideas you should consider. 


1. Update Your Planters

Despite cooler weather, you can still enjoy pops of color throughout your landscaping. Add many fall plants to your landscaping with autumn hues such as reds, yellows, and oranges. You can fill beautiful planters with these flowers or simply incorporate them with your existing landscaping. A few plants you should consider include:

  • Chrysanthemums

  • Sunflowers

  • Pansies

  • Goldenrod


2. Focus on Your Front Porch

Your front porch is the entryway into your home. When well maintained and decorated, this area can instantly impress every guest who walks through your door. First, spruce up this area by sweeping, washing, and wiping it down. Then, lay down a festive welcome mat, place pumpkins and planters filled with fall plants nearby, and hang a beautiful fall wreath on the door. 


3. Use Fall Leaves

The leaves in Charleston are beautiful during the fall months. You can incorporate this colorful fall foliage around your home. Set up a festive display in your garden beds or near your front porch. Consider incorporating colorful leaves, branches, and other foliage to add color, dimension, and style. 


4. Think Outside of the Box 

If you want to truly transform the exterior of your home and make an impression, think outside of the box. For example, if you have a large porch, create fun and unique seating options using hay bales. Place cornstalks near your front door and major walkways to add some height and contrast to these areas. Hanging a festive garland around your front door could also add some color. Place Chrysanthemums, plastic corn, pumpkins, and other décor on the garland to add even more beauty. 


5. Consider Lanterns

You can brighten your front porch or your front walkway with lanterns. This is a fun and unique way to add more light to the area without much work. While you can always purchase lanterns for these spots, consider making your own using paper bags and electric candles. You can cut out leaves, pumpkins, and other fall shapes for a festive touch. 

Improving the curb appeal of your home can be fun and lets you unleash your creativity.
