The task of choosing the right paint colours for the inside and outside of your commercial buildings isn’t quite the same as that for a house. While you may feel free to paint your home in whatever bold or unusual colour you wish, it may not be the best choice of hue for a larger and more imposing building in the middle of a business park. 

Colour is one of the sometimes overlooked aspects of commercial painting & decorating in Aylesbury, Milton Keynes, Luton and Bedford, so here are some of the key factors to consider.

Your business building will likely be larger than your home

A larger building can resemble a jarring blot on the landscape if it has not been painted in a way that minimises its visual impact on its surroundings. This is why commercial buildings – which are often larger than the typical home – are often best painted in a neutral colour palette.

Well-chosen neutrals are not only effective for enabling a commercial building to better blend into its environment, but may also more easily complement what may be periodically changing business logos and exterior signage.

These elements will be able to stand out better from your commercial building’s broader colour scheme when relatively mild hues are used, although further interest can be created by the addition of bold colours as accents, such as on trim and doors.

The other factors that may decide your favoured colours

Other aspects of your commercial building’s wider environment that may influence your choice of colours include the size of the site where it is located and the styles and colours of nearby buildings, driveways, paths and landscaping.

You should also consider what a given choice of colour would indicate about your business. A legal firm, for instance, would be more suited to a relatively sedate colour than a business that may seem slightly more creative or even frivolous, such as a sweet shop.
