Maintaining your home in the monsoon can often be a task. But guess what? The rainy season is also the perfect time to add some freshness in the form of bright colors to your home. Keep the blues at bay and check out how to make your home monsoon ready.
Begin with buying a large, thick coir doormat and place it near the main door. If you have more than one balcony, then place these outside each of them. Avoid taking your footwear inside your rooms and restrict them to the entrance. This will help in keeping the dampness and dirt at bay.
With the moisture in the air and closed windows, it is important to keep your home odour-free. Invest in some scented candles and remember to light them for a few hours every day. This will help in keeping the house smelling fragrant and refreshing.

Bring in some yellow into your home this season! It is a beautiful, happy colour and the perfect contrast to the monsoon mood. Add pastel greens and hints of pinks and blues to the room. Avoid accents of just one color as the weather can be dynamic at times cloudy, sun ny or rainy a varied color palette complements the dynamism.
