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

 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

“Julie,Just to let you know I am very appreciative of your crew catching the plumbing/mold problem. It was very astute of them. I wanted to let you know that again your crew has done excellent work here, please pass this along to Mr. Jessee. There are some bumps in the road here, but the painting and your crew has not been one of them. Their work is the only thing going right currently, and this crew is very nice and respectful. It is much appreciated. Thank you again.”

“Charles finished yesterday and did a fantastic job. We really enjoyed meeting Charles and having him in our home. He is a great guy in addition to his attention to detail in his work, the protection of our floors, walls and furnishings, and his overall interaction with us both. I would be pleased to recommend him to any of my clients.”

— Ken Morrison

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”

— Heather Jordan

“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”

“The people at M.B. Jessee are great – from the painters to the office staff to Matt. Talk about leadership from the top.”

— Kevin Ames, Mark Becker Homes

“In September, MBJessee finished painting two sides of our 3-story condominium building (six owners). We were impressed by the professionalism of the company and every one of its workers, Matt Jessee couldn't have been more helpful in planning the project. His painters were well-trained, easy to communicate with and eager to please. In addition to painting the stucco, they made extensive repairs on windows and frames, which will save us considerable money in the future. They finished earlier than anticipated, with as many as five men working on the job, and the scaffolding came down the next day. All of us were delighted with the results. Now my husband and I are looking forward to having MB Jessee paint our own apartment later this month. Matt and Gustavo (who will be our crew leader again) have explained how they will work to make the painting proceed smoothly while we're living here, and they have been endlessly patient with our protracted decision-making process. If you look at their website, you'll learn that MB Jessee is an exemplary company that takes good care of its workers as well as its customers, and contributes public service projects to the community. All in all, we can't recommend MB Jessee highly enough.”

“Dear Matt,You must be so proud of your men! They were fantastic to have around. Polite, courteous and hardworking. I am so pleased with the outcome of our home--in fact, I couldn't be any more pleased than I am!”

“We just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the work of MB Jessee Painting and your employees. Everything turned out beautiful. Our foreman was great! He was punctual, professional, neat and very accommodating ... and went the extra mile. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.”

— Michelle & Rivers Gee

“I loved working with M.B. Jessee from start to finish on a relatively small paint job that grew a bit. I felt in very good hands from the moment Matt Jessee came out to give me the estimate and talk about my job. He was very easy to talk to and he handled my changes very well. Then the actual work done by Rigoberto and Mario was impeccable. They were neat and meticulous and the paint job looks beautiful. I could not have asked for more and when I did, they accommodated me 100%. I will not hesitate to call M.B. Jessee again and to refer them to friends.”

— Nancy Kurkjian

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”
