With its long days and warm temperatures most people agree that summertime is the season for having fun. It’s also a perfect season for taking care of projects around the house that might otherwise be neglected due to time constraints, weather or other factors.
With that in mind, summer is the perfect time for taking care of those long-neglected or never-considered painting projects. A fresh coat of paint will help brighten up your home and surroundings no matter where applied.
The Home’s Smaller Details and Accessories
Whether a barrier, enclosure or strictly ornamental, many fences help frame their homes. As such, a fresh coat of paint on a fence can serve to help bring out the grandeur of a home, similar to how a good picture frame can draw out a painting or photograph.
Trellises tend to weather quicker than fences, and, as adornments, are often neglected. But a fresh coat of paint on a trellis can definitely help brighten the garden and surrounding yard.
Speaking of weather, door and window trim, along with the doors themselves, tend to weather over time quicker than the rest of a house. Touching up those smaller detail areas between major paint jobs goes a long way in keeping a home looking showroom ready.
While treehouses can hold a special charm, for both children and their parents alike, for some reason many treehouses are considered finished when the last nail has been pounded. Why not give that treehouse the same attention to detail—and color scheme—as the main home?
In a similar vein, perhaps tend to that long-neglected shed with a fresh coat of paint?
Why Not Paint the Cave?
A man’s home may be his castle, but he truly only rules the roost in his man cave. No matter what form of private enclave—be it garage, storage room, or whatever—most men tend to be neglectful of its aesthetics. So what better summertime project than to up your game by personalizing it via a paint job. School colors, favorite sports team colors, hunter’s camouflage, or whatever colors speak to your style might look great on your garage floor, walls, or whatever space serves as your in-home hideaway. In fact, no matter what color scheme you might choose, a new paint job will undoubtedly make your cave the envy of all your cro-magnon, cave-dwelling brethren.
