Monsoon can make your home look dull and dreary. These 7 tips will add some joy to your interior decor.
Monsoon can make your living area look dull and grey. Instead of making your home look boring, you can update your space smartly to match the season. The decor is a great way to counter dullness, especially by using many colors. Shivani Aggarwal (CEO, Formula Group) and Yogesh Gopal, CEO and founder of Uplodefoodie, share some tips that will help you give your home a brighter look without breaking the bank.
Let the colors pop!
Rains could make your environment dreary. It is a great way to combat the grey weather. You can use colorful curtains, cushions, accents such as table lamps, vases and paintings, or even wall art. Bright colors such as yellow, bright pink, and orange will brighten up your home. This will instantly brighten up your home and elevate your spirits.
Rent outdoor furniture:
If you’d like to take in the rain and admire the freshly baptized trees and plants from the comfort of your own home, then make your outdoor space/balcony more inviting. You can cover the area with cheap umbrellas or canopies to create a coffee/tea spot. You can rent a few pieces of furniture, such as a hanging chair or some wicker furniture, to enjoy the outdoors experience with a cup o’ tea/ coffee, soothing music and hot samosas.
* Get high-absorbent mats for your doors:
Monsoon brings dirt and muddy flip-flops, as well as soaking raincoats. To avoid mud clumps getting into your home, make sure to buy high-absorbent mats for this season. Your carpets can attract mold easily, so keep them out of your home. Doormats can be made from used clothes and other materials in attractive colors and designs. Make sure they conceal any dirt or sludge left behind.
Invest in an airtight container:
Food spoilage caused by microbial growth is a frequent problem during this season. Good-quality containers are important. Glass bottles/jars should be used. They will not allow moisture to enter the food. You can choose from appealing colors and sizes that match your kitchen decor.
Say goodbye to the odor:
While we love the scent of petrichor during the rains, this season brings with it a musty odor due to fungal infestation. High moisture levels and humid air can cause an unpleasant odor, hurting one’s health. Home-made remedies can make your home smell fresh and clean. Mix lemon, rosemary, water, and vanilla extract in a mason jar. In just a matter of minutes, your home can smell fresh.
De-clutter your space
When it rains, upholstered furniture against walls absorbs a lot of moisture. This promotes the growth and development of bacteria and fungi. Reorganize your space by moving the furniture from the walls. You should seal and coat the furniture’s edges with sealants to prevent moisture from settling on it.
Grow your greens:
Monsoon can be the best time of year to plant fruits and vegetables in your garden. Give the plants the organic fertilizers they need to thrive and water the rains. Greenery can be added to your home. To give your home a pleasant appearance, buy house plants and put them in ceramic pots or glass vases.
