These plants complement the look of the house. Place them on your kitchen slab, living room corner, or bedside table to improve lungs health of your family.



Plant some vines and creepers in beautiful glass vases or bone-china pots along with the staircase railings, balcony grills or indoor dividers. These will result in the shaded area underneath them besides lowering the temperature in their close proximity by around 20 degrees.



Round-Up

By changing the kind of upholstery, bed sheets, drapes, etc you can offer your house a vibrant and breezy feel. A lot of floral or tropical motifs on the bed sheets, curtains, rugs, and cushions accompanied with summer lamps, LED Chandelier, fresh bouquet of flowers on the center table along with lively photo frames on the walls would render the sought-after cool look to your residence. 

Turn off unnecessary lights, especially incandescent bulbs as such lights increase your power consumption boosting your electricity bill. Also, these radiate a lot of heat.


So, switch over to cooler light-emitting diodes (LEDs) or compact fluorescents (CFLs) lighting system and gift your house cooler shades this summer.
