5 Tips on Choosing the Best Colour Combinations for Painting the Exterior of a Commercial Building

Choosing a colour, or colours, for the exterior of a commercial building you should take notice of a lot of factors.  A commercial building is seen by many people.  Personnel and clients can be drawn towards the building or they may try to rather avoid it.  Aesthetic properties, as well as the effect of the colour choices you decided on, can have a psychological effect on a person.

You need to consider all the different facts to ensure your paint colour choices will draw clients, rather than discourage them to enter your building of business.

5 Tips to help you pick your Exterior Paint Colours:

  1. Think about the type of client you want to draw: Certain colours conjure certain reactions.  A bright orange can draw attention and announce a certain place for bargains.  You would not use that for an elegant high-class showroom for unique furniture.
  2. Colour-code your specific business: Different colours are associated with different psychological reactions.  When your business should call customers to buy outdoor furniture, you won’t use blacks and greys, you would rather use yellow, green, blue, etc.  Red makes you feel hungry, green is calming, yellow is sunny, and like this, all colours have a certain connotation to something else.
  3. Choose your accent colour in a hue that is a little lighter or darker: Certain colours just compliments each other but to stay safe on the exterior of a building, rather use colours of the same hue, for instance, dark grey with a light grey or white, a light green with dark green trimmings.  There are many combinations you can choose from.  You can also apply bright and colourful; it all depends on the atmosphere and style you want to generate.
  4. Complementary colours can convey a lot about your business: Again, a little play with colour goes a long way to draw the type of client you want to engage.  Different colours are associated with different meanings and will draw different psychological reactions.  Blue is the colour to represent respectability and calmness, brown for trustworthiness and so forth.
  5. Always keep in mind the reaction a colour can cause and the atmosphere you need to convey: When you use all these tips when choosing your exterior wall colour will ensure that you draw the clientele that you need and that their reactions will be positive towards your business.

Choosing your colours well will not only draw those customers you want but will also let your commercial building stand out amongst its neighbours.
