3 Things To Consider When Choosing The Exterior Paint For Your Business

If your business is in need of a new paint job, then this is the time for you to choose a new color scheme or to decide on other things you would like to have incorporated into the exterior of your business. The last thing you want to do is to make a fast decision with something this extremely important and then decide you should have chosen something different or had other elements added after the paint has dried. Here are three things you want to make sure you consider when you are choosing the right paint for your commercial business's exterior.

1. Stand out without looking tacky

There's a fine line between choosing colors that help your business to stand out from those around it and standing out in a tacky fashion. Unless there is a good reason why you would choose to paint your building a very bright color, such as orange or pink, it's best to go with toned down colors that are considered to be more professional. You can still have your business painted in a way that helps it be recognizable from others without going too bright.

You should consider choosing a color that's a couple of shades away from the businesses right next to it to make yours easier to spot to your customers and others who will be visiting regularly. By having your business a couple of shades off, they will recognize it right away and on sight. Also, first-time visitors will see it better, so they don't pass right by it.

2. Consider going with two colors

If possible, you may want to have the exterior of your business painted in two colors. If you do this, you may want to go with a dark color along the bottom and the lighter color on top, this is generally more pleasing to the eye. Plus, having the darker color on the bottom will help you to keep it cleaner, as the rain can splash mud specks on the wall and when you have a darker color down there, it will be harder for people to spot the dirt.

3. Think about having logos or names painted at the same time

If you are going to want to have the business logo, the business name or anything else painted on the exterior of your business, you should consider having this done when you will be having the entire exterior painted. You will find it less expensive to have everything done by the same painter. Plus, it allows all the exterior to age at the same time, which makes sense since it means the place will need an entirely new paint job at the same time in the future.

About Me

A New Beginning

After months of unsuccessfully trying to conceive, my husband and I are preparing to adopt a baby. Before our little one arrives, we need to complete some major renovations on our fixer-upper. After building a master bedroom suite addition, my spouse and I plan to create a nursery in our current guest bedroom. I’m already thinking about what color I want to paint this special room. Because we may not know the gender of our baby for a long period of time before we bring him or her home from the hospital, we wish to paint the nursery a color that will work for a boy or a girl. I think a calming, light green color on the walls could look amazing. On this blog, I hope you will discover the best paint colors to use in a child's nursery.
