Autumn Home Inspirations

Autumn Home Decor

Autumn is well and truly upon us, and after the most glorious Summer, we are sad to wave goodbye to the sun but very excited for all things cosy!

Is anyone else looking forward to decorating for Halloween and making their homes cosier ready for those dark nights?

Our favourite thing to do in Autumn is to change up our home interior design to fit the season. You may want completely new furniture. If so, we have some stunning ranges of flat pack furniture with free delivery available online at Y1 Furniture!

However, if you’re just looking to accessorise, read on…

Here are our 10 top tips for the perfect Autumn home:

  1. Blankets and Throws – These are a necessity in my house. There is not a room in the house without at least one blanket. Okay. I lied, I don’t have any in the bathroom or kitchen. But, you understand the importance, right? Not only are they super cosy and warm for the cold evening to come, you can buy them in everything colour and pattern on earth and they look so gorgeous.
  2. Candles, candles, candles – Candles come in all scents, sizes and beautiful packaging these days. The most amazing scents for Autumn are obviously pumpkin spices, vanilla or berries. So sweet and comforting – The perfect aroma to your Autumn home.
  3. Fairy lights – I have fairy lights up in my home all year round to be honest, but I especially turn them on from Autumn time. Cosy up on the sofa, wrap up in your favourite blanket with your candle burning on the coffee table and have your new pretty fairy lights twinkling around you. Have I, or have I not just described the most perfect Fall evening?!
  4. Hot Chocolate – The world’s most perfect cold weather drink. No debate, this is a fact.
  5. Flowers – You may think flowers are summery and die away afterwards, but I would have to disagree. Some of the prettiest coloured bouquets are found in Autumn. The autumnal orange shades look so lovely in the home.
  6. Wooden Coffee Table – Every Autumn lounge needs a stunning wooden or wood effect coffee table in the centre of the room. Where else would you put your candles and hot chocolate? Wood patterns pair so well with all autumnal colours. We have a great range here at Y1 Furniture, all delivered flat packed with easy home self-assembly instructions.
  7. All the cushions – Just like blankets, you can never have enough cushions. Whether they’re on the sofa, the chair or the bed, they look so cute and are extremely cosy. So many places are now selling lovely cushions with super pretty designs on too.
  8. Wicker Baskets – When you’re not cuddled under those blankets and throws, you’re going to need somewhere to keep them. Roll them up on pop them into a cute wicker basket. This brings your whole living room décor together so nicely. These baskets tend not to be too expensive either but they always look it!
  9. Autumn Wreath – Who said wreaths on the door were just for Christmas? Not me! There are some beautiful autumnal wreaths on the market currently. Some real, some fake. Either way, they look absolutely lovely hung on your front door.
  10. PUMPKINS – Finally, of course it’s pumpkins! It’s Autumn, the season of cosy nights and Halloween. Obviously, you can do the traditional spooky face pumpkin. But, we love getting creative and creating more modern, stylish pumpkins. Get the paint, glue and glitter out and go to town on those pumpkins. You can decorate them to match your interior. Who says they have to stay orange right?!

Maximising Space

How to maximise space in your home

For those of you living in smaller, cosy homes. Or for anyone with that one room that just never seems to stay tidy. Keep reading as we’re about to give you our best tips of how to maximise the space in your home.

From shoe cabinets to coffee tables, we have an array of flat packed furniture products available to help you keep everything in your house neatly organised, as well as looking great too.

Make the most of your home with storage furniture

Firstly, we have our Shoe Cabinets. Shoe cabinets are the perfect way to save space in any room in the house. In the hallway, the bedroom, the office or even the living room. Our flat pack shoe cabinets are all great designs, so you can have them in any room without ruining your home décor. The Essentials Collection features a range of shoe cabinets in different sizes and colours.

We have the 3 and 4 drawer shoe cabinets in either Sonoma Oak wood effect, or fresh white finishes. Both are super slim line, yet can fit around 50 pairs of shoes in. So, ample storage and an extremely easy way of tidying up those shoes that always seem to be laying around the house.

In contrast, again from the Essentials Collection, we have the shoe storage cabinets with 2 or 3 slatted doors. This style is available in either the Sonoma Oak wood effect or a Dark Oak wood effect. Although these are called shoe cabinets, you don’t necessarily have to put shoes in them! Get creative and store whatever your heart desires. You could even get little baskets to sit on the shelves to take your organisation to the next level.

Aside from shoe cabinets, a fantastic way to make the most of the space you have in your living room is a coffee table with storage. Lucky for you, we have plenty options to choose from.

From the Bay Collection, this coffee table with 3 drawers in an Oak wood effect and white finish is beautiful. It’s modern with a retro feel and perfect to brighten up your lounge. The 3 drawers also provide great storage for anything you usually find laying around and making a mess.On the other hand, if you’re looking for something more lavish looking, we have the Yale coffee table with 2 drawers and 4 shelves in a dark walnut wood effect finish. The dark wood colour and design of this coffee table brings a luxurious and grand feel to the home.We have so many storage furniture options available online now. All flat pack furniture orders have Free UK Delivery too.

Best of luck is organising your home and maximising your space. Make sure to tag us in your photos on Instagram. We’d love to see how you use our furniture to transform your home.
