DIY Tips: How To Keep Your Kitchen Cool In Summers

No matter hot it gets outside, you still have to eat and for that, you have to cook! Summers get unbearably hot in Pakistan sometimes, and if you cook frequently, you must have struggled with keeping your kitchen cool on a hot summer day. Your kitchen will transform into a hot burning oven during the summer months when combined with cooking lunch or dinner. The smaller the kitchen, the warmer it gets.

It doesn’t have to be just as hot inside even though it’s 100 degrees outdoors! Fortunately, there are a few ways to beat the heat. You can control the temperature in your kitchen more effectively by using these options:

Cooling options for kitchen

There are several cooling options that can be used to keep the kitchen cool in summer. These are listed as follows:

● Ceiling fan: Using a ceiling fan is one of the easiest and most used methods for cooling a place. Most kitchens in Pakistan do not have a ceiling fan but it can be installed. However, if the kitchen is too small, some other options can be availed.

● Window Fan: This choice fits neatly into the windowsill and has two fans that may be configured to blow in opposite directions. When placed in the exhaust position, the reversible window fan can efficiently remove odors, steam, and smoke from your kitchen. The advantages are multiplied by two when it is possible to blow in cool, refreshing air while also clearing out the stuffy air.

● Table fan: Table fans can fit in most areas and provide cooling air circulation if you need something smaller. It can be hidden on top of the refrigerator or in the kitchen’s corners. If you only need a small breeze or have a small kitchen, it’s perfect.

Although one of these options will definitely be ideal for your situation, it’s probable that a combination of possibilities will be most beneficial. The best results for cooling a warm, stuffy kitchen come from having a fan in addition to one or more of the choices below.

Clean out fridge and freezer

There are some days when the heat makes you want to bury your head in a freezer. Do it, we say! Make use of it as an excuse to go through your weird sauces and partially consumed bags of frozen vegetables. Work swiftly and only on a small portion of the shelf or section; you don’t want pints of ice cream melting on the counter or your fridge working overtime to maintain its cool temperature.

Do your cooking earlier in the day

A wonderful approach to avoid the hottest part of the day is to set aside some time to cook first thing in the morning. You can zap your dinner in the microwave when it’s time to eat, which won’t heat the space. Alternatively, prepare some chicken the night before and use it in cold meals like a chicken or pasta salad.

Close the shades/blinds

Have the natural light that filters into your kitchen as you enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning? That heat radiates from your kitchen! If there are curtains in there, keep them drawn as much as you can.

The interior temperature of your home can be considerably changed by excessive sunshine, which can also heat up your kitchen.

One of the greatest methods to keep your kitchen cool in the summer is to reduce the amount of sunshine that enters the room.

Switch off unnecessary lights

The lights in your house warm your kitchen similarly to how sunlight does. You can maintain a reasonable level of cooling in your kitchen by turning down the lights.

By just turning off any unnecessary lights, you’ll be astonished at how much the temperature in your kitchen will drop. You’ll also eventually spend less money on electricity.

Replace any reddish or yellow lighting in your kitchen with white illumination as another way to keep it cool. This is because yellow absorbs heat while white reflects it, raising the temperature in your kitchen area.

Restrict excessive movement to lower the temperature. For instance, make sure you collect everything you need if you’re going to the kitchen so you don’t have to go back and forth a lot.

Use electric appliances instead of the stove

Even though it’s only 50 degrees outdoors, you still need to eat in order to survive. Avoiding the use of a stove and making use of all the kitchen appliances that have been collecting dust in the corner are fantastic ways to prevent your kitchen from overheating during the summer.

Make the most of technology by pulling out the toasters, electric oven, rice cooker, and slow cooker. This simple action can make a significant contribution to keeping your kitchen cool and cozy in the summer. Additionally, using these tools will enable you to do your work much more quickly than normal and spend less time outside in the heat.

Meal prep in advance

Take advantage of any lovely summer day to get some meals ready in advance.

Prepare and freeze easy meals that you can reheat in the microwave when it’s hot outside to save time and effort.

When you prepare your meals in advance, you’ll be able to unwind throughout your hectic day as well as when it’s too hot outside to cook.


You can use these suggestions to manage the summer and kitchen duties more effectively. However, always keep in mind that the summer heat cannot hurt you unless and until you are well nourished and hydrated.

Although it may not seem ideal, staying hydrated can significantly alter how you feel about summer. For electrolytes, it is advisable to add some sea salt and lemon to your beverages. You can also sip on cold, fresh juices to stay energized.
