Commercial Painter VancouverLet’s face it: if you own or manage a facility as large as a factory or warehouse, the prospect of painting it yourself isn’t too appealing. For most businesses, in fact, it’s practically impossible, even with “in-house” assistance. The disruption to normal on-site procedures alone often creates an unrealistic and unmanageable situation.

The color of your office space, medical or dental office, restaurant, large store or small shop speaks much more about your business than you think. The choice of colors you paint your walls, ceiling, and even the floor, radiates a great deal about you, your business, your employees, and ultimately your product and service. The kind of “vibe” your place of business resonates through its aesthetics can affect the way it is run, and ultimately how it makes money.

Something a skilled commercial painter well knows is that the color that envelops a room has an effect on the mood of people inside it. Your employees may find themselves in a more energetic and creative mood with a room painted in red. A doctor’s office is usually painted all white to exude a feeling of cleanliness and purity. A dentist’s office might do well in pale blue, which tends to have a calming effect. Have you ever felt like you’re gravitating to a certain shop at the mall just because their interior looks so inviting? That’s the same technique in action, which uses mood colors that can boost your business.
