Keeping your bedroom cool during the summer

Keeping your bedroom cool during the summer.
Keeping your bedroom cool during the summer.
No one wants to pay for their air conditioning to be running all day, but most people also don't want to come home to a sweltering home. By installing some window blinds and shades in your bedroom, you will not only improve the aesthetics of the space, but create a cozy sleeping environment after a long day, according to the Kansas City Star.

One trick to cool off your bedroom is to use a dehumidifier - this will remove much of the sticky heat that is in your room and effectively cool it off during the day.

There are a number of window treatments available that will reduce heat in your bedroom, but will also offer privacy and reduced air leakage during the summer. Bamboo woven wood shades are an excellent choice that will go with any interior design, and they can be fitted with privacy liners to keep prying eyes away.

Honeycomb cellular shades are available in single- or dual-cell blackout varieties that will control air leakage and help to cool down your bedroom. By ordering blinds online, you can have these fashionable window treatments custom-made to fit any space.
