12 ways to make your home cool

Give your home a light and breezy feel with this easy Do-It-Yourself ideas.

1 Let your room breath. Put away clutter. Clear up areas for easy access and passage.
2 Ventilate. Open windows to let the cooling and air breeze in.
3 Bare your floors. Put away area rugs and carpets and expose your wooden floors. Bare floors help make a room feel light and airy.
4 Allow natural light to come in. Use glass curtains for a brighter room or plain light-colored drapes for subdued lighting.
5 Wake up on crisp, neutral-colored cotton sheets. Nothing beats the feel of pure cotton bedding in summer.
6 Paint your walls a light shade. Pale colors, particularly white, create a cool and bright feeling throughout a room.
7 Cool the eyes with fresh flowers and greens. Real flowers and foliage never fail to soothe and refresh the eyes.
8 Freshen up with soft, absorbent towels. Feel the summer heat being wiped away as you dry yourself with soft, absorbent cotton towels.
9 Maximize light. Mirrors helps reflect and spread light throughout the house.
10 Make full use of glass. Use sleek glass vases, instead of ceramic ones, for a lighter feel.
11 Take the indoors out. Dine outside and bask in the sunny and breezy weather.
12 Bring the outdoors in. Create the feel of a summer getaway without stepping out of your home.
