It’s summer now, and along with vacations, warm weather, and time to paint your and home sparkle in the sunlight. Revamping your home during the summer is the perfect time to brighten it up and bring some life back after a long fall, winter, and busy spring season. To start having those backyard pool parties and celebrations, you’re going to want to bring the colors out to uplift the mood. We have a few paint suggestions and colors to help you bring the summer in and feel energized all season long. 

Home Paint Projects To Consider 

Everyone has a few painting projects that they can tackle at home, and with the help of a professional painter, you can get it all done in a timely manner with spectacular results. You can tackle each of these projects piece by piece or devote some time to get them all knocked out in one package with 3rd Generation Painting on the job. 

Shutters and Trims

While you sit outside enjoying the summer rays, you want to be able to look at the exterior of your home and admire it as well. Revamping the exterior of your home goes far beyond just curbside appeal and summer love. It can help you find any cracks or damage done to the walls over time. 

The window shutters and trim may begin to look rough after a long winter, but it’s nothing a little touch-up won’t fix. You can work on the entire window, touch-ups, or a new color can help make them look like new. Hiring a professional team to take care of this task is recommended due to the dangers to consider while working on high windows. 

Think of contrasting colors for a more modern look, or stick to your current house pallet if you’re not looking for anything too eye-popping. A fun thing to remember: painting the inside of the window trim can help brighten things up inside of your home! 


Maybe not the first place your eyes go when you enter anyone’s house, but the baseboards are just as important since they help protect the walls from dirt, scuffs, and other damage. So, because of their purpose, sprucing them up is never a bad choice. This is a great thing to get done while getting a room repainted, and giving them a contrasting color will only brighten your rooms even more so than before! 

Interior Doors

How are your interior doors looking? Have you really thought about them or taken a look at the scuff marks and paint chips that have probably happened over time from carrying things in and out? Most doors are standard white or just wood-stained. Giving them a paint uplift can do wonders for your home since it’s not too often this is done. Think about colors that reflect what you do in that room, or add a pattern to really mix things up! 


The most obvious thing to get done when refreshing your home are the interior walls. You can completely transform your home by brightening it up, changing the mood, and so much more. The biggest change you can make is to completely repaint your walls with a new color, accent, or texture. If you’re looking for a way to help change your outlook and mindset, then this is a perfect direction to go towards.
