The peak of summer brings countless opportunities for outdoor fun, but it also brings sky-high temperatures! When you’re looking to beat the blistering heat outside, take advantage of a few easy interior design tips to help keep yourself feeling cool, calm and collected! From subdued hues to stylish indoor sunblock, we’ll help keep your space feeling perfectly breezy all summer long.

Easy Breezy Materials

One easy way to keep your interior feeling breezy is to cover it with the right materials! Furniture that’s embroidered in velvet, leather, or other synthetics can start to feel sticky on those warm summer days. So, slip your furniture into something a little more comfortable like cotton, linen, or chambray slipcovers! Not only will your furniture look brand-new, it’ll feel as comfortable as the cool side of a pillow.

Pro-Tip: Make sure every square foot is covered in cool materials by laying down some slate tiles! Slate feels cool to the touch and is incredibly durable, so it can handle both the hottest summers and the harshest winters!

Cool Colors

Another simple way to beat those blistering summer days is to enlist the help of some subdued hues! Shades of grey, blue, and green all help reduce the visual temperature of the room, which has a literal cooling effect on our bodies. Bring one of these cool colors into the kitchen and you’ll instantly feel that heat start to fade away. Blue dishware, blue chairs, and even a blue toaster are great at cooling things off a bit when you’re cooped up in the kitchen for hours on end.

Pro-Tip: Drop the temperature down a few more degrees by bringing in cool-colored cabinetry! Just make sure to balance the cool colors with ample amount of white, so you get that healthy balance of warm and cold.

Stylish Sunblock

One of the easier ways to manage the temperature inside is to manage sunlight! To keep your living areas at a livable temperature, apply some stylish sunblock directly to your windows with the help of some chic curtains or drapes. For the most comfortable results, use cool-colored drapes with polyester backing or woven thermal curtains, and make sure they are hung as close to the window as possible. For the most stylish results, make sure your drapes match the color or patterns of existing elements inside the room—or, better yet, make sure your accents match the cooler colors of your new drapes!

Fan Favorites

Bring down those internal temperatures even more by adding a few overhead fans! Even though fans don’t decrease the actual temperature of a room, the circulating air is enough to make your skin feel up to five degrees cooler. At a minimum you should have a ceiling fan in the master bedroom for those hot summer nights, but the living and dining rooms could also benefit from some crisp, cool circulation! And when it comes to the style of the fan, opt for options with 3 or 4 smooth blades—the fewer and smoother the blades, the less noise and the more cooling comfort they’ll produce!

Pro-Tip: The best way to beat the heat is to get rid of it entirely—especially when you’re cooking—with vented range hoods! Just make sure the hood itself is at least as wide as the cooking surface below. You do that, and you’ll have yourself cooler, cleaner air in no time.
