Ah, sweet summertime. The warmer weather and longer days often spark people to start spending more time entertaining at home, which tends to lead them to think about all of the things they could do to improve the looks of their houses. If this is what has happened to you, you’re not alone! Summer is a very popular time to redecorate.
One of the easiest, and most affordable, changes you can make is to repaint some of the rooms in your house. This will make a big difference in the aesthetic of your space without costing you a great deal of time and money. As you read on, you’ll see a list of some of the best summer paint colors to choose to make your house feel bright and sunny all year long!
The Bright & Sunny Colors
- Aqua – Nothing evokes feelings of sitting by the water, be it a pool or an ocean, like fresh aqua walls. Aqua is also a triple-threat hue in that it makes you feel happy, energetic, and calm all at once. It’s the perfect shade for a bathroom, a dining room, or a kitchen. These are all spaces where you want to feel energized to get things done, while still savoring your time at home.
- Bright yellow – It’s not uncommon for homeowners to initially shy away from bright yellow walls; they can be a bit intimidating! However, bright, sunny walls make for bright, sunny days. Kitchens look especially good painted in this color. If you don’t want to take the plunge into painting all four walls in a room this hue, consider doing an accent wall instead.
- Coral – Coral is one of the most summery hues in the spectrum, so you can’t go wrong picking it for a room in your house. It’ll evoke feelings of summertime sunsets, tiki bars, and beach nights. Coral can be tricky because it’s so bold. If you’re planning on using it in a small space, like a bathroom, go all out and paint all four walls, but make sure you use neutral accessories. If you’re planning on painting a big space coral, consider doing just one or two accent walls with cream everywhere else.
- White – Don’t balk at the idea of white walls being summery before you’ve really considered it. White clothes are decidedly a summertime staple and the shade also brings to mind white sand beaches and crisp, beachy bed linens. If you choose to go with bright white walls somewhere in your home, bring summer to life by using accessories that feature the other colors showcased in this guide.
Remember, your home should make you happy, so pick colors that you’ll love every time you walk in the door, whether it’s July or January!
