Summer is here once again and with it comes the excess heat that makes us feel rather uncomfortable. However, did you know that by decorating your house in a particular way, you can beat the summer heat? We assure you that it is possible. In fact, here we are going to give you 5 simple tips that will be very helpful in this regard.
1. Light coloured Curtains and Net Curtains
The oldest trick to fight the indoor heat is to close the windows during the day and open them at night. Choosing light and thin curtains will also bring freshness to the rooms. What's more, these types of curtains will also prevent mosquitoes from coming in.
2. Choose the Right Materials
Do you wear a woolly sweater in the middle of July? Surely not. So, why use thick rugs if it's more than 30 degrees? It makes no sense. At this time of the year it is best to opt for cotton, linen or silk fabrics throughout your home. Out with the flannel and velvet!
3. Dark Colours are Banned
Dark colours attract and retain heat inside your home. Therefore, it is best not to use them during this time of the year. Always choose lighter colours, such as white, beige and pastel. If you want to include patterns, always go for striped, dots or flowers.
