Looking for ways to keep your house cool in style?  No matter the budget, we’ve got 7 designer tips and tricks that will help to transform your space into a refreshing oasis.


To keep your house cool in hot summer months, cover the windows.  Use blinds, roman shades, drapes or black-out curtains to block out direct sunlight and prevent excess heat from entering your home.

Close the doors to any rooms that are not being used during the day.  This will keep cooler air contained within the rooms that are actually being used.

Swap out synthetic materials for breathable, natural fibers like cotton, linen or bamboo for your sheets, pillowcases, duvet insert and mattress covers. These materials promote better airflow and help you stay cool during hot summer nights.

Don’t forget about your pillows.  Using natural fiber pillows will reduce the chances of you waking up in the middle of the night in a sweat.

Studies are starting to show how many nano-particles of plastics are found in our bodies.  Synthetic textiles like polyester are a main culprit.

Open the windows for better cross ventilation. Take advantage of cooler evening and early morning temperatures by opening windows on opposite sides of your home to create a cross breeze. Keeping your house cool with natural ventilation can significantly lower your energy bills and help to cool down your living space.


If you have the budget, head over to Lion Windows and Doors and look into floor to ceiling sliding glass doors to really let the breeze flow through your home.

One of the oldest and most budget friendly ways to keep your house cool if to use fans.  Get the air moving and utilize fans strategically. Position fans near windows or in doorways to draw in cooler air from outside.

Ceiling fans and portable fans can circulate the air effectively, creating a pleasant breeze throughout your rooms.




Consider installing a ductless mini-split air conditioning system. These units are efficient, cost-effective, and allow for personalized temperature control in different areas of your home.  Mini slips helps to keep your house cool without breaking the bank.

If you’d like to hide a large unit that is located high on the wall, build a cabinet to conceal the unit, making sure there’s enough space to allow for air to flow.

Opt for slot diffusers. If you have a central air conditioning system, upgrading your vents to slot diffusers can enhance airflow and distribute cool air more evenly throughout your rooms.

We love linear slot diffusers because they are more modern and sleek way to keep your house cool.  Rather than having a vented box that clutters up the ceiling, a clean inconspicuous vent cools each room without hardly noticing.
