The first thought that comes to our mind when we talk about summers is the fierce heat and tempered atmosphere. Soothing, calm and serene surroundings are preffered over dark, dull and drab environment. This summer, if you want to beat the heat effectively, one of the best ways is to make your home summer-friendly. Yes, it's possible. Here are some quick tips to 'summerize' your home.

1. Keep the Colors Light:
Light colors should be the order of the day. Shades of baby pink, aqua, sky blue, or lemon but yellow cool the eyes. Light colored walls contrasted with even lighter bedsheets draw away excessive heat.

2. Draw away Excessive Furniture:
A crowded room absorbs more sunlight and is therefore warm. Spacious places give the inhabitant a free-to-roam-about feeling. Too many chairs in a limited area or piles of crockery on the table top do not serve the purpose of bringing in the seasonal change.

3. Switch to Sober Designing:
Simple art and sober designs are a treat to watch in summers. Bulky antiques and heavily carved sceneries look unpleasant. White blended with any color is the most appreciable. However, completely doing away with the articles is not suggested, one might cover them up with light coloured cloth pieces.

4. Window View:
The best place one finds in the home is the shelf near window. Window view creates and develops the atmosphere of the entire room. A beach side view is recommended for those who live near sea. However, for people putting up in industrial areas, placing creative window screens depicting vegetation or watery paintings is an option.

5. Placing Plants:
Not only do plants freshen up the air, but also create an aroma in and around the space where they are kept. Replacing bulky showpieces with plants bearing fragrant flowers create a scented atmosphere. Filling the vases on side tables with ferns or daffodils enhance the beauty of the interior.
