(StatePoint) A seasonal home makeover doesn’t need to cost a fortune or be difficult to execute. Quick, easy and innovative ideas can give your home the fall flair needed to celebrate the season.

"Seasonal décor updates should jive with your home's style, while also adding something extra to the mix," says Eric Cohler, who has been listed as a top international designer by House Beautiful and Elle Décor magazines.

Pops of color

"With relatively little effort, you can add bright, bold colors to your home by swapping out the knobs and handles on your cabinets, credenzas and other furniture" says Cohler.

Seasonal sets of cabinet hardware can keep the look fresh in your home. All you need is a screwdriver and a few hours.

A free web-based application, Splash by Amerock, offers a new interactive design and shopping experience by allowing you to truly customize hardware for cabinets and furniture. Or maybe it's high time to paint and find a new look. Autumn's colors — warm golds, oranges and greens and cooler taupes and browns — look great in any season and especially help a room feel warm and luxurious in winter.

The feel of fabric

Another easy way to make a quick look-and-feel change to a room is by swapping out curtains, drapes or the fabrics on furniture. It's a great way to customize a space to better fit the mood of the season.

What's more — a quarterly rotation of window treatments and furniture covers presents a much-needed opportunity for a good cleaning. Be sure to store your freshly laundered linens in a sealed bag so they don't collect dust. When they make their appearance the following year, they will be vibrant and fresh.

Fall can be a particularly busy time of year; however, a few easily implemented ideas can go a long way to add a festive vibe to your home.
