How to Decorate Your Home for Halloween

As Halloween approaches, you’re sure to want your haunted house to look ready for the occasion. The wide selection of Halloween decorations available at Kohl’s allows you to find all the seasonal essentials needed to transform your home this October. 

No matter if you like to decorate with simple, subtle accents or prefer to go all out with interior and outdoor décor aplenty, Kohl’s is sure to be your destination for home Halloween decorations.

Decorating Your Home for Fall & Halloween

While decorating your home for Halloween can be fun, it might also be of interest to you to decorate for the entire fall season. Halloween décor and fall accents can work together to create a feel that will last throughout this time of the year, connecting to the Halloween holiday, as well as the general overall feel of the season.

A great way to incorporate both into your seasonal décor is to begin decorating your home for fall a little early. Consider beginning to incorporate autumn decorations in your home in late August. Utilize some fall colors, like purple, red and orange, as well as seasonal icons like pumpkins, apples and leaves.

As Halloween gets closer, begin to add in decorations specific to the holiday, while switching out the more general fall décor items. Replace the pumpkins with jack o’ lanterns, add in black cats and skeletons, and switch out general fall throw pillows with ones that have Halloween scenes and designs.

Post Halloween, keep some of the fall décor in place to get ready for Thanksgiving.

Types of Halloween Decorations

Halloween decorations come in many different sizes, shapes and designs. Each of these items adds seasonal appeal to your home, and can be used in a variety of ways.


Rugs are a great way to cover sections of your home in seasonal style. Halloween rugs, including welcome mats, give your floors a spooky look and fit into entryways, the kitchen, and other high-traffic areas.

Throw Pillows

Another versatile décor option for your home is a throw pillow. Throw pillows can be placed on sofas, chairs and couches to provide instant spooky vibes. You can find Halloween throw pillows with ghosts, pumpkins, witches and skeletons, which give your space your own personal seasonal style.

Wall Décor

The walls in your home are the perfect places to add decorations that bring the feel of the season into your living space. Halloween wall décor includes fun accents like wreaths, string lights, canvas art pieces and more.

These items can be easily hung on your walls, using a nail, a wall hook or other hardware. Then, when the season is over, you can swap out the décor for items that connect to upcoming holidays, like Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Outdoor Decorations

If you really love the Halloween season, why stop at decorating your home’s interior? Take the spookiness outside with Halloween outdoor decorations and inflatables that give your home a haunted house feel.

Inflatable stacks of pumpkins, artificial plants, weatherproof signs and garden flags are just a few of the options you can add to your lawn for Halloween. These decorations let your friends and neighbors know how important the holiday is to you and your family, and help give the neighborhood a Halloween atmosphere.

How to Decorate Rooms in Your Home for Halloween

Each room can benefit from Halloween decorations, so let’s see how you can incorporate décor into some of the specific spaces in your home.

Living Room

To get your living room ready for Halloween, add in throw pillows, blankets, wall and table décor, and candles. Your coffee table is a great place to incorporate table decorations like candle holders, trays and artificial floral arrangements.


Area rugs, wall décor, and dining table accents are ideal for adding into your home’s kitchen. You can also add in functional décor, like dish towels, washcloths and more. Even decorative bowls and plates are a fun addition to meal time during Halloween.


Incorporate weatherproof signs into your home’s porch for Halloween. These signs welcome your guests to your home with flair. The porch is also a place to add pumpkin décor, artificial plants and flowers. To complete the look, add a Halloween wreath to the front door.
