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

“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

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

“I just wanted to send you an email to say that John did such a great job over here today. He is truly a hard worker. He has the perfect balance of friendliness, honesty, and professionalism. I trust him. He takes the time to do the job to the best of his ability and that is what sets him (and your company) apart from the competition. He didn't make me feel rushed. He really made me feel like our job was the most important thing in the world. Thanks again!”
