Fall is just around the corner and you know what that means: dropping temperatures, grey skies, and drier air. While fall is one of the most gorgeous times of the year and the kick-off of the holidays, it is also the season where there are a lot of adjustments!
To help you ease into autumn, here are 10 fall home essentials we will all need and fall in love with!
Having a humidifier this fall is a must to help battle the dry air!
Humidifiers add moisture to the dry autumn air and can help treat dry skin, lips, throat, and nose. One of the worst feelings is waking up with an extremely dry throat and feeling like your skin is tight and cracked. With a humidifier, you can kiss the discomfort bye-bye!
And, as an added bonus, some humidifiers work with essential oils that can do wonders for your health and well-being! Make sure to check if your humidifier works with essential oils before doing so, however!

2. Pops of Color
Okay admit it, fall can be a little depressing at times. The temperatures are dropping and school is starting back up and the skies are turning grey.
To be the blues of fall, add a little color to your home! When you think of fall, you might not think of flowers but there are, in fact, lots of gorgeous flowers that bloom in the fall! Some of these flowers include chrysanthemums, pansies, and dianthus which are all fall flowers and therefore can be found or even planted during this gloomy season!
If flowers aren’t your thing, add pops of color with decorative pillows or art pieces! The ideas are endless and having little pops of color here and there will definitely boost your mood!
3. Sunrise Lighting
Waking up in the morning is hard enough as it is, but trying to wake up when it’s dark outside is even harder.
One of the worst things about fall is how dark it is in the morning. Daylight savings might help a little, but until then it can be a challenge in the dark mornings! To beat this, invest in sunrise lighting!
Sunrise lighting is great for everyone because it gradually and gently wakes you up. Sunrise lighting is a type of smart system that will begin a rising light 30 minutes before your alarm goes off and will be it’s brightest when your alarm goes off. Wake up with the sunrise and feel more rested than ever!

4. Space Heaters
Space heaters are essential if you are living in colder climates! Space heaters are also amazing if you are living in a dorm or apartment because they are designed to heat up smaller, enclosed spaces! So if there’s one room in the house that is always feezing, a space heater is a must!
5. Portable Fans
Even though it’s getting colder, there are some nights when the heat of space heaters and heaters, in general, can be a little too much. Having a mini or portable fan is essential to have for those days where it’s too cold to turn the heat off but it’s also too hot in the house.
Having a fan going is also a great thing to keep air circulation going as well, so even if it’s too cold to have a fan on you, it will keep the air circulating!
6. Coffee Maker
During the fall, pumpkin spice everything is making the rounds. And, unfortunately for us, that means coffee shops are overflowing with customers and the lines are out the door. We also can get addicted to the warmth that coffee brings in the chilly mornings and that can get really expensive!
To save some money and beat the crowds, consider investing in a coffee maker. In the long run, you will be saving tons of money and you can make your own coffee the way you like it! You can even search for Starbucks recipes and get that coffee you crave at home!
7. Heated Bath Mat
Having a heated bath mat might seem excessive and unnecessary, but how many times have you gotten out of the shower on a cold autumn morning and been freezing? Too many times.
Owning a heated bath mat makes your morning routine that much easier and comfortable and they are surprisingly inexpensive! No more getting out of the shower and dreading the cold tile floor!

8. Candle and Wax Warmers
Who doesn’t love a good fall candle? The only bummer about candles is that you can’t (or shouldn’t) leave them burning when you’re not home and many dorms don’t allow them because it is a fire hazard.
If you want to spice up your space with the fall smells of a candle without actually lighting a candle, look no further than candle and wax warmers!
Candle warmers are great for dorm rooms as you don’t need to light a candle to actually get the gorgeous smell! When you light a candle, what you are smelling is the melting wax so a candle warmer can do this minus the flame! As an added bonus, you can use a candle warmer as a mug warmer to keep your coffee or tea hot when you’re not using it for candles!
Another great option is wax warmers! Wax warmers are getting more popular as it is essentially a ceramic bowl being heated by a light bulb so you can leave it on even when you aren’t home or when you’re sleeping! The perks of this are that you can get the fragrance at all hours so when you come home your house will be filled with the smells of fall! Many stores sell wax melts but if you don’t like any of those, pick your favorite fall candle and scoop out the wax to make your own melts!

9. Space Bags
Space bags are essential for every season, but you definitely need them to store your summer clothing! Use space bags to condense clothing and even condense winter coats that you don’t use every day! You will be shocked by how much space you can actually save with space bags!

Another item that might seem unnecessary, but once you have it, you’ll never want to go back!
Towel warmers are surprisingly inexpensive and it will make your bath and shower experience way better than you could have imagined! And if you want to splurge and spend a little more, it will definitely pay off!
