How to Prep Up Your Interiors for summers?
As the winter goes by and the summer sun takes over the skies, most people look for ideas to make their homes cooler and breathable. This is especially a huge problem for those having hot and humid summers. Your heavy dark-hued curtains and thick throws cannot work in the sweltering heat. Interestingly, you can tweak up your interiors easily by simple DIY techniques to make your interiors light, cool, and breathable. Here are some quick ideas to adjust your interiors for summers.
Play With Colours
Summer is all about brightness and colors. As the sun shines down, try to add more colors to your interiors to give it an uplift. You do not need to make expensive changes like painting the walls. From scratch. You can simply upgrade your upholstery or little decorations to add the much-needed pop. For example, a neutral-colored couch can be uplifted with vibrant colored cushions. Paint your planters in dark hues to pop out against the neutral colors.
Paintings and wall hangings are a great way to adorn your walls. If you have a small living space, paint your walls white and put up colorful paintings and wall pieces. If you are into crafting, you can create some easy DIY mixed media pieces or involve kids in some fun acrylic pour activities on canvases for your walls.
Let the summer sun fall into your space to create a bright, positive ambiance. Sunlight is not only a great source of vitamin D but can also make your space look bigger and brighter. An open, well-lit, and breathable living space also keeps your mood and energy levels up and helps to combat sadness and gloom. Just like canvas bags have replaced those thick leather bags, canvas curtains are the attest trend in the home interiors world. Canvas happens to be light-weight and breathable fabric and therefore acts as a cool drape for your windows. It lets the natural light fall in while at the same give your windows just the right cover. The best part is that canvas curtains are super budget-friendly and easy to wash.
Nature alone can add so much oomph to your interiors that you will not feel the need to invest in any extravagant artifacts.

You can do that by evaluating your local climate, sunlight exposure, and select the plants accordingly. Some succulent plants are said to be great natural cooling agents and other amazing properties.
