Cooling down your home during the summer doesn’t have to rely exclusively on an old fashioned box fan or whole house air conditioning. In addition to these traditional methods, there are also stylish ways to keep your indoor air fresh and chill.
Even your home’s more regular and mundane furnishings or appliances can be a vibrant part of your décor.
Your family, friends, and guests will enjoy these fun new ways you provide a refreshing atmosphere for the entire home.
Decorative Table Fans
Standard table fans now come in a variety of colors, styles, and sizes. You can choose matching fans throughout your home or coordinate them with color schemes in specific areas. You could even paint or decorate the fans yourself. These fans will then become part of the décor rather than merely functional table objects.
Festive Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans in motion not only cool a large room, but they also add a decorative touch when you hang ribbons, scarves, or dangling accents from the blades.
You can choose virtually any color item you wish along with a thematic element for the season, such as cute fish, seashells, or other figurines. Just make sure that such additions pose no danger for anyone standing underneath the fans.
Custom Window Blinds
Blinds can be just plain and functional, but why should they be? Many homeowners select chic custom blinds as window treatments to give each room a certain look or feel.
Blinds come in a range of materials, colors, and designs to give everyone something that enhances their home décor.
Vertical or horizontal blinds can be installed that are either elegantly simple or that are imprinted with a lovely image that flows into the room’s orchestrated arrangement.
Blinds can also protect paintings from the damaging rays of the sun and can provide shade to plants that need it. Their adjustable nature ensures that you can tailor the shade to different times of day. Blind can be both a beautiful and a functional addition to your home.
Appealing Screen Doors
On days with comfortable outdoor weather, you may want to leave screened doors and windows open for a breath of fresh air. Lovely wood or aluminum screen doors in good condition help to create a vivid impression of the home’s entrances while allowing cool air inside the house.
The doors can also be decorated with wreaths or other accents that when viewed from the outside introduce the theme or décor that visitors will encounter after stepping over the threshold. Doors can make a powerful first impression.
Adorned Ceiling Vents
Conventional ceiling vents generally appear mundane and unnoticeable to casual observers. However, they can take on a whole new effect when you add stick-on decorations around them as a colorful border to enhance the ceiling and go with the rest of the room.
Streamers can also dangle from the vents that brighten the room with colorful or fun elements that serve as tasteful accents.
Make your home’s cool air even more welcome by jazzing up the way it is delivered in each room. Even the most mundane objects can become ways to accent or enhance your interiors.
Objects as simple as ceiling fans, blinds, screen doors, and even just regular table fans can become a striking part of the home. Your house is not just a place for you to sleep or stay cool, it’s a place for you to live.
Don’t let boredom or sheer practicality restrict how you style your own home. Rather, experiment with these techniques to create a whole new look for the summer.
