Summer Home Design Tips

South Carolina Exterior Remodeling Designs and Ideas for Summer

Summer cookouts, movie nights, and patio fun are all on the horizon. For many of us, the summer season marks the shift from living indoors to hosting family gatherings and big events outdoors. That means that it is time to ensure that the exterior of your home looks its best. While curb appeal is certainly going to play a role in any outdoor project, you will also need to consider how your outdoor living space looks, feels, and functions. In other words, you want an outdoor space that makes you and your guests feel right at home whether you are hosting a barbecue on your fun new deck or a pool party with cocktails.

Exterior painting can be a big job, but you don’t have to go alone or spend hours searching the internet for “painters near me.” Colorworks Painting & Designs can help you create the outdoor living space of your dreams. We have years of experience in the home remodeling business and a proven record of success. Our team can help you turn your vision into reality with these great ideas!

Summer Deck Makeover

Is your deck looking too lackluster for words? Weather alone can take a toll on your deck, and over time, it can start looking worn and degraded even if it’s in otherwise good shape. A little time, effort, and paint can breathe new life into your old deck, transforming it into the perfect party pad for whatever summer brings your way.

A good power wash can clear away cobwebs, leaf litter, and other debris, but if time and weather have eroded the color and life from your deck, it’s time to consider staining or our exterior home painting services. The right color can refresh and renew your outdoor space and make it look fresh and new again. You can use the same color as before or opt for a whole new color to match or complement your home’s color. For a fun twist, use a different but complementary color on the handrails.

Continue your deck makeover by adding new furnishings, outdoor rugs, potted plants, an awning or umbrella, and custom outdoor lighting to keep the party going after the sun goes down. For the best results, choose pieces that work well with the overall design scheme of your home and maintain a feeling of continuity between indoor and outdoor living spaces.

Pops of Color

What could be more eye-catching than bright splashes of color? In the summer, you have nearly endless options when it comes to inspiration for your exterior painting, from pretty flowers to fresh fruits. Bright colors surround us all season long and make it easy to choose your favorite shades for a splashy front porch, patio, or front door. Now is a great time to go bold with a vibrant new shade in complementary colors. If you’re unsure of the best colors to use, one of our pros can offer seasoned advice or help you compare and contrast a few different options. Remember to add some hanging plants or a fun new doormat or door knocker to create an inviting new look.

Pretty Borders

Fences, walkways, and borders are often merely utilitarian, but the right exterior painting job can take even the most basic fence from boring to brilliant. Much like decks, fencing can become worn, weathered, or faded over time. Stain or paint can refresh and renew the look of your fence and increase the “wow” factor of your home. Your fencing can be stained or painted to either match your home or done in a complementary color, depending on your style goals.

Fresh Paint

Smaller updates here and there can give your home a fresh new feel, but sometimes, they just are not enough. Sometimes, your home needs a fresh coat of paint, which is where Colorworks Painting & Designs in Charleston SC, comes into play. We can help you find the right color for your space by updating your color or finding a brand-new color. Repainting your home will not just give it a bright new look and feel but will also boost its curb appeal and overall value.

The Fine Details

When tackling the big jobs, don’t forget the little details that can be so easy to overlook, such as gutters. Replacing the gutters, downspouts, and other essentials will help give your home the rejuvenated look you want. More importantly, it will help protect your home from unwanted water damage by ensuring your roofing and other systems are functioning at their peak.
