Your Bedroom Air Conditioning Can Make or Break Your Decor
Everyone is trying to make their bedrooms look beautiful – after all, it’s a place where you spend 6 to 8 hours of your life every single day. The problem is that there are some things you need to have in your bedroom – a bed, a nightstand, a mirror, a heater, an air conditioner, etc.
Most of these items can look good. Obviously, designers make all types of beds in all sorts of styles and colors. We’re not sure why, but the one thing that companies still aren’t making beautiful versions of its air conditioners.
Big, Bulky, and White
You can spend as much money as you’d like on your furnishings, but the problem is that you still need to control the climate in your bedroom. Have you ever tried to go to sleep in 90 degree weather? Yeah, you’ll end up tossing and turning in your own sweat until you deliriously drift off to sleep. It’s not a pretty picture to paint, but it’s one that you need to consider.
Traditional air conditioners are incredibly unattractive. Not only do you take away from the ambiance of the window, but you replace it with an air conditioning unit that’s built around function, not design.
Imagine a hotel bed, freshly made with pristine, white, bleached sheets. But there’s one purple spot on them in the bottom right corner. Are you going to notice the brilliance of the bedding, or are you going to notice the stain?
You’re going to notice the stain. Now replace the bedding with your entire bedroom and the stain with your ugly air conditioning unit.
It Doesn’t Have To Be That Way!
One solution is to get central air. Now, installing a completely new cooling system in a colder climate will cost you an arm and a leg, because there are fewer providers. In warmer cities – let’s take St. Louis as an example – there are a lot of different companies all vying for your business. Heating and cooling in St. Louis won’t cost you as much, but it’s still substantial.
If you’re just looking for a quick fix, consider an air conditioner cover. Even though it’s 2014 and the majority of new homes are being built with central air, plenty of people still live in old houses without it. Old houses have character to them – the last thing you want to do is ruin that with a clunky air conditioning unit.
Air conditioner covers come in all different sizes, styles, and colors. In fact, unless the décor in your bedroom is really out there, we’d go out on a limb and say that there’s an air conditioner cover can fit in perfectly. They range from $10 to $30, depending on the material that it’s made of. (That’s quite a bit less than central air!)
Don’t let the climate in your bedroom ruin the décor. Pay close attention to the “stains” in your bedroom like air conditioning units and you’ll achieve that perfect look that you’re aiming for.
