6 Tips for preparing your home for monsoons

We all are done with summers and eagerly want the monsoons to start. What a sight it would be to see the dry and parched earth soaking in the rains and reviving its true colors. The cloudy skies will bring the temperature down and relieve us from this scorching heat. We should all welcome the rains by making ourselves and our abode all set for the pouring season.


Here are some tips that would be beneficial in the monsoons:-

Inject colors into the décor: When the dull skies make your mood go gray, all you need is some bright interior accents! Just rob in some cushions, pillows, décor accents and rugs and other decor items in pop color and you are sorted for the rainy season. Up for some more inspiration? Hang those colorful plates that don’t have a set now on the wall and play with variety of colors, style and textures. Pastels are for summers. When it’s pouring, try including some pop colors like orange, red pinks and greens to add some zest to your home.

Pack those luxurious fabrics inside: When there is water everywhere, your home is prone to get wet and damp. Therefore it is a safe option for pack those luxurious fabrics and make some room for cotton curtains, cotton rugs and throws. Moreover, the bling do not go very well with the monsoon décor, so it’s time to hide them away in the closet and replace with fabrics that do not absorb moisture from the air and remain damp always.

Hardwood Floors needs special care: The wooden floors look amazing but it needs special care and maintenance in the rainy season. The moisture content on the hardwood floor makes the floor warp and swell so keeping it dry and free from moisture all the time becomes an absolute necessity in monsoons. Also it would be wonderful to just wax coat them right before the monsoons to prevent water from seeping in. Any maintenance work on the floors should be done before the monsoons set in or are completely over. monsoon-decor

Rearrange furniture for better ventilation:  It is better to make the home monsoons ready. Pull the furniture away from the walls- that serves 2 purposes. First, it will create a cozy sitting space while you sip tea/coffee with your loved ones when it’s pouring outside and secondly when you take the furniture away from the windows and doors, it will make the rooms better ventilated and lighted and lessen the chances of it getting wet.

Bring the nature in- While it looks spectacular outside when everything gets washed in the rains, how about creating a splendid green view indoors too? Invest in some exclusive pots and bring all the plants and place it in the corners. It will not only remove foul odours from the house but also infuse positive energy and vibes.
