 Commercial Painting in the Bay Area:  Picking the Perfect Colors for Your Property

Think bigger than maintenance. Is it time to reimagine your property?

Painting your commercial property is an essential part of your maintenance strategy, but it can go so much deeper than that. The right colors add marketability, clear branding, value, and curb appeal. Don’t miss out on a key opportunity!

#1: Consider Your Customers

The nature and function of your property, along with your target customer, should all be factored into your color choices. Different colors resonate with people in different ways, and you’ll want to leverage that power to your advantage. For example, some may be inspired by bolder colors and accents, while there are others who would appreciate a more calming, neutral palette.

#2: Draw Attention To Signage and Branding

Carefully chosen colors can highlight certain attributes of your property and minimize others. Choose wisely, reinforcing your brand and signage while also drawing attention to any unique aspects of your building or architecture.

#3: Consider Color Psychology

Your palette can be used to evoke different emotions and levels of energy. Think through the mood you want to create, and make sure your colors support your goals. As an example, a professional office space might not be the right place for vibrant reds and oranges, making a calmer blue or neutrals a better choice. If you are painting a fitness center, on the other hand, you might want those more energetic tones.

#4: Don’t Just Play It Safe with Neutrals

Neutral colors are easy to pick, look nice, and age well, but they aren’t interesting or inviting. We recommend thinking outside the box, making your space memorable. Whether you own a restaurant or an apartment building, you should tell a consistent story with your colors that creates an appealing ambiance and reinforces your brand.

#5: Consider the Age and Style of Your Property

Certain architectural styles call for specific colors and design, making it easier to narrow down your options. You may also want (and need) to stay consistent with neighboring properties. If that’s the case, we recommend looking for ways to add your own twist to the style, maybe with a unique accent color or a bolder play on a traditional palette.

Do Colors Have You Stumped? Ask About a Professional Color Consultation

Especially when you’re considering a large-scale repaint, it can be helpful to talk to a color professional. They may open your eyes to options and ideas you never would’ve considered, helping you zero in on a perfect solution.

Customer Reviews

“I just wanted to thank you all for doing such a phenomenal job on our recent house painting. We are very happy with the outcome and can't say enough good things about the crew. Everyone working on the project was outstanding and made it a great experience. Thanks to everyone.”

— Daylan

“M.B. Jessee painted the exterior of my Spanish house over 9 years ago, and they did such an incredible job that they are still getting referrals from me today. The paint is holding up perfectly -- there is absolutely no peeling chipping or any other deterioration. I still remember that my final walk-through list consisted of items written on one side of a 3x5 index card (and I'm REAL picky about my house!) However, when Matt and I did that walk-through over HALF the items were no longer an issue, as his team had noticed them first and they had already been resolved.”

— JoAnn Newcomb

“Thank you for the support you have given the Women's Cancer Resource Center over the past year!”

— Margo - Director Women's Cancer Resource Center

“The painters at MB Jesse are top notch! Cesar's team was super friendly and helpful. They were very polite and accommodating. Their expertise in everything painting related was evident in their attention to detail and efficiency painting tricky spaces. The apartment looks brand new!”

— Adam Swisher

“Julie, by the way, I have never been so impressed with the service of a painting job before! It was like magical elves came and painted our walls without us having to do a thing! It looks amazing and just wanted to let you know how happy we are. Thanks”

— Anja

“In all the years I've worked with MB Jessee, I'm always so impressed by your crews. They are so respectful of everything--you never even know they're there! Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“Very easy to work with, they did an outstanding job with our project of re-painting our painting our kitchen cabinets. Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”

— Vince Scola

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

“Hello Matt,Just another notice of thanks to your wonderful crew, Rigoberto, Javier and John. They did fantastic work, with Rigo providing meticulous and conscientious attention to the details and excellent woodwork finishing, as evidenced by the beautiful fireplace. Javier did a fantastic job in the bathroom especially, it looks "brand new," and John always does quality work, both with the interior and exterior. I can tell they care about what they do. Rigo's "punch out" was very thorough, too. I will call again when I need some more work and will definitely recommend your company and fine crew. I also felt as a homeowner, I could leave my house in their good hands during the day and that took a lot of worry from me, they were honest, prompt and reliable. They were also very kind, respectful and clean in their work, very professional. Thank you.”

— Beth Marx & Melissa Kirsch

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

— Richard

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”
