Summers are back and it may be time to embrace the sticky, sweaty weather again.
Summers in Pakistan are generally quite hot, with some cities reaching 40 ° C or more during the peak of the season in mid-June. With the sweltering heat making your interior sweltering, you may feel like updating your interior and making it light and airy for the season.
Summertime is not all that bad. As Bryan Procter said,
“Oh, the summer night, has a smile of light and she sits on a sapphire throne.”
And one of the first steps to changing your attitude towards the summer is by switching up your house.
Here we will share some of the best summer house decoration ideas so you can breathe easily and feel fresher with your indoor environment.
Here’s How to Make the Interior of Your Home Feel Light and Airy This Summer!
OPT FOR A LIGHTER PAINT COLOUR
We have all heard that darker colors absorb more heat and it has also been scientifically proven. So rather than letting the heat buildup inside, try choosing neutral or pastel wall paints. Beige, white, and gray are some perfect colors for the summer months. If you don’t want a monotonous house, you don’t have to worry. You can incorporate colors like bright oranges, vibrant greens, bright yellows, or even soothing sky blues for your pillows, curtains, and other fabrics. You can also opt for floral printed curtains or bedspreads to add liveliness to your decor.
ADD GREENERY WHEREVER YOU CAN
Honestly, nature is full of blessings that most of the time we ignore. Go to the nearest nursery and buy some green leafy vegetables to put in and around your home. The touch of green will not only brighten your living space, but it will also make it fresher and more natural. Not to mention, the plants will help purify the indoor air and also moderate the temperature.
IMPROVE AIR FLOW INDOORS
First, open the doors and windows. This will allow for better ventilation in your apartment and bring natural light.
Don’t you want the neighbors to watch?
Hang curtains on the windows or balcony door. If you don’t have ready-made curtains, hang a spare bed sheet over the door with fabric hooks or pins. It’s a quick and inexpensive way to ensure privacy and ventilation indoors. However, make sure the tarp or curtain is made of a light, smooth material so it moves in the breeze and doesn’t restrict the flow of air.
REARRANGE BULKY FURNITURE
Next, if you have a lot of heavy or bulky furniture in your central living space, consider rearranging the space. Push your bulky pieces against the walls, and if there’s barely room to walk, skip the center table or rug. While most of us can’t redesign our furniture to suit the weather, you can still rearrange it in a way that allows for ample space inside. You can also remove extra pillows, accents, decorative items, and side tables to accomplish this.
DECLUTTER YOUR HOME
If you have more stuff than space in your home, it’s no wonder you’ve felt choked and claustrophobic. Remember, the more crowded your room seems to be, the more you will feel inside. That’s why it’s important that cleanliness is a priority.
While it’s perfectly possible to tidy up your entire house for a weekend, it’s best to start with one bedroom or closet at a time. This will make the business more manageable. Eliminate things you don’t need or no longer use. This includes clothes, shoes, old toys that your kids no longer play with, and a variety of other trinkets that build up in a home over time.
OPTIMISE THE USE OF MIRRORS
If you want to create an illusion of space and want your home to appear more open and spacious than it actually is, chooses mirrors. Round, square, full-length, or small mirrors can reflect light and make your home seem larger if you know-how. It’s all a matter of location. A strategically placed mirror can make your room look twice as large and lead you to believe its interior is spacious and airy, especially if you have a breeze coming in through the window.
TURN TOWARDS YOUR LAST RESORT
Although we all wish we had a natural breeze during the day, unfortunately when the heatwave hits the air it becomes hot, humid, and stuffy. In these cases, letting it in can often cause further damage to the cooler.
This is when you need to turn to electronics to cool your home and keep it light and airy during the heatwave. While using lighter colors, houseplants, and tricks to create space can work wonders, invest in a fan or air conditioner. When your ceiling fan refuses to cool a room, you’ll appreciate having an alternative on hand.
The best summer home decor ideas allow you to maximize space as you update your interior to make it light and airy as a whole.
Since summer in Pakistan is the longest season in most of the country, it is ideal for changing the interior style according to the climate. This can make it easier to beat the heat and resist the heatwave by staying indoors.
