Feeling the heat of the summer sun already? We all know what that means — a full-blasting hot temperature! While the unbearable heat cannot be controlled, you as a homeowner has the power to keep your house a bit cooler. Of course, a good set of ventilation units are helpful, but what’s also useful is the light and airy colors of your interiors. Here’s a few good ideas on wall colors that will certainly keep your house cool and fresh this summer!
1. A subtle color
Neutrals are the most common and most subtle colors that are the easiest to work with in interior designing. Moreover, it’s the best set of colors for a hot and humid day in the Philippines. That is why, one great idea when you’re thinking of repainting your walls is to coat it with a soft and light neutral color. Beige, taupe, and even grey will keep your interiors cool and fresh-looking all summer long.
