After enjoying a cozy winter, it’s time for the hot and boring summer. When summer is here, we usually update our wardrobes but very few take their homes in to consideration. Looking to make some meaningful changes to your home and get it ready for summer?

Here are 5 affordable décor hacks to make your home summer friendly –

#1 Soothing bed linen

Buy Cotton Double Bed-sheets with 2 Pillow Covers Under Rs 500

If you really wish to give a makeover to your bedroom this summer, opt for these cotton bed-sheets with summer friendly shades and fabrics. The best part about bed-sheets is that your bedroom says a new story every time you change the bed-sheets.

#2 Time to shuffle your curtains


Buy Curtains Under Rs 250

We usually opt for those heavy and embellished curtains which exude warmth and luxury for our space. However, summer calls for an obvious change. Switch to lighter curtains with pastel shades. Make sure you opt for airy fabrics like net, chiffon etc. This little change will make your room look bigger and let in more sunlight.

#3 Brighten up your drawing room with new cushion covers
