 Picking Commercial Paint Colors? Eliminate the Guesswork!

If you’re painting a bedroom, it’s okay to experiment with color. Try out a section, see how it fits, and if you don’t like it you’ve only lost an hour or so of your time.

But how about when you’re painting a high-rise in San Francisco? Suddenly your color choices take on extreme urgency, especially if you’re juggling other improvements, deadlines, permits, and the all-important budget.

Here at MB Jessee Painting, we have a couple key strategies in place to help you make the best decision, saving you time and money while ensuring that you’re thrilled with the finished product.

If you come across this article and you aren’t in the Bay Area, you may want to use these tips/ideas as a way to launch a valuable conversation with your own prospective painter.

How Do We Help You Pick the Perfect Paint Colors?

#1: Color Consultations

It’s more than just picking a color - you need to consider surrounding buildings, architectural style, your brand, the message you want to convey, and color psychology as a whole. Aesthetic is important, but color reaches way beyond that.

We can connect you with professional color consulting services, with trusted professionals who can help you navigate these waters and present perspectives and ideas you wouldn’t have otherwise considered.

#2: Digital Rendering

Are you a visual person? After our clients have engaged our services, we offer the option of a digital rendering service, placing color options “virtually” on your actual building. This way you can see what they would look like in place.

Here’s an example from a project we completed here in the Bay Area. We took it an extra step and had a little fun sharing options on social media, letting people weigh in on which palette they liked best.

#3: Brush-Outs

Once you have your choices narrowed down, we can also utilize brushouts. These are painted panels that we place on your building’s exterior. This way you can see the color in place (without fully committing to it), and can see how it looks from different angles, in varying light levels throughout the day, etc.

Customer Reviews

“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

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“Just wanted to let you know that the crew was great to have around the house for the past two weeks. All three of them were professional, courteous, and attentive to my thoughts/concerns and were extremely knowledgeable. They paid great attention to the detail and it shows.”

— Mark & Roberta Gross

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

— Jessica Dodson

“Our paint crew did a great job and the foreman, Gersson was exceptionally great to work with. He was always available to answer questions, good at problem-solving, very patient, kind, and highly professional with great customer service. We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”

— Andrea Y.

“The entire MB Jessee team is courteous, efficient and professional. From scheduling and estimating to the crew managers and crew, they all did an excellent job on a small (but complicated) two room project in my house. I'm already thinking about getting them scheduled for the next project in the spring.”

— Cari Cheney

“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.”

“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

“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

They pay attention to detail and listen to the needs of their clients. In addition, they give back to the community. A Five Star team all the way around.”

“Today I received a beautiful bouquet from your company. It was totally unexpected and very much appreciated--a lovely surprise. Also today, your crew finished my job. I am so pleased with all their fine work. Richard is absolutely amazing and a total delight to work with. He was also extremely helpful during the paint color process. The interior work in my home far exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to you and the crew for an outstanding job. Thank you, thank you for a terrific job!”
