Summer Wallpaper Hacks for Hyderabad's Hot & Humid Climate


21 June 2024

Hyderabad heats up in the summer, and while you might be reaching for a cool drink and cranking up the AC, your home decor could be feeling the heat too. But don't worry, wallpaper enthusiasts!  With the right approach, you can still embrace the beauty and functionality of wallpapers, even in Hyderabad's humid climate. 


So, let's dive into some sizzling summer hacks to keep your walls cool and collected: 


  • Choosing the Right Material 

The key to summer-proof wallpaper lies in the material. Some options handle heat and humidity better than others. Here are our top picks:  

  1. Vinyl Wallpaper: A timeless classic for a reason, vinyl boasts excellent moisture resistance. Look for options labeled "washable" or "scrubbable" for easy cleaning.  

  2. Non-Woven Wallpaper: This breathable material allows for better air circulation, preventing moisture buildup behind the wallpaper. It's ideal for bedrooms and living rooms. 

  3. Fabric-Backed Vinyl:  Offering the luxurious look of fabric with the practicality of vinyl, fabric-backed vinyl wallpapers are a great option for adding texture and warmth while remaining resistant to moisture.  

  • Location: Strategic Wallpaper Placement 

Not all areas in your home experience humidity equally. Here's where strategic placement comes in: 

  1. Avoid High-Moisture Zones: Steer clear of applying wallpaper in bathrooms, laundry ooms, or directly behind kitchen sinks, where moisture levels are consistently high. 

  2. Embrace Cooler Spaces: Opt for wallpaper in living rooms, bedrooms, or hallways with good ventilation. These areas tend to experience less humidity buildup. 

  3. Sun-Kissed Walls?: While some sunlight can be beneficial,  avoid placing wallpaper on walls exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods. This can cause fading and warping, especially for delicate materials. 

  • Let There Be Light and Ventilation 

Good ventilation is crucial for controlling humidity and preventing wallpaper damage. Here are some tips: 

  1. Open Windows and Doors 

  2. Invest in Ventilation Fans 

  3. Consider Dehumidifiers 

  • Keeping it Cool with Design 

Summer vibes can be reflected in your wallpaper design too! 

  1. Light & Airy Colors: Opt for light colors like pale blues, greens, and whites, which create a sense of spaciousness and coolness. 

  2. Reflective Finishes: Metallic accents or subtle shimmers can add a touch of luxury and reflect light, making the space feel brighter and more airy. 

  3. Nature-Inspired Designs: Patterns featuring leaves, water elements, or calming botanical motifs can evoke a sense of tranquility and coolness.
