Even though summer is over, the overcrowded cities turn into ovens. The atmosphere becomes incandescent not only outside, but also inside people’s homes, so our main concern is getting the optimum thermal comfort during this time of the year. Here are some simple tricks with which the home space will seem cooler.
- Ceramic tiles
As we all know, both the tile and marble (and, in general, natural stone) are in the cold finishing category of materials, which means that we can use them with confidence in any room of the house (including the living room and bedroom) for obtaining a cool and proper environment.
2 Using blinds and curtains
If you have problems with the use of the a.c. and you don’t get along too well with it, keep your favorite room in the shadow by placing blinds at the windows. The sun heat will be kept outside and the coolness inside will be kept at an optimum level. Same thing with curtains: if you keep the darkness within a room, the temperatures will drop with a few degrees.
- Glossy fabrics and materials
Other design elements of great help in obtaining an atmosphere to take us thinking about the sea breeze or the snowy peaks of the mountains are areas of glass, mirror, stainless steel, and textile materials such as satin, silk and organza. They have the great advantage that we send much needed coolness at both visual and tactile.
- Cool Colors
Even if the degrees in the thermometer refuse to drop to a sufferable level, we can use a “therapy” with colors, such as white, blue, turquoise, green and gray, which are colors that induce the sensation of coolness, therefore contributing greatly to our well state during the summer. If we want to create a fresh and invigorating frame, that is perfectly good for us to save us from torpor, we should use them in landscaping large areas (for example, finishes).
5. Use plants that you will place here and there and you will obtain a psychological effect of being in the forest. Green is the most relaxing color, it is neutral, as well, which means it’s not warm and it’s not hot, according to the chromatic classification, and it has an overall soothing effect.
