Commercial Painting Trends of 2021
Posted Jul 05, 2021 by Dave Scaturro
A painting project isn’t just about helping our client’s identify a favorite color. Choosing a paint for your building or property that is durable, safe, appealing and easy to maintain is also essential. When recommending a product for a project, we take into consideration the best applications, coatings, paint and of course, colors that add value to your building or business.
A formula that stands up to weather, maintenance, repairs, and sunlight is key. Working with experienced commercial painting contractors like Alpine Painting will help you identify paints and coatings that are specifically designed for your project.
The hue you decide on can impact everything from curb appeal to employee productivity. It’s more than just picking a color you like; marketing plays a big role. In 2021, calming neutrals and uplifting, bright accents are among the most popular color trends.
Eco-friendly and Sustainability
Commercial paints are becoming safer and healthier (no more bad smells). They’re also helping to reduce the carbon footprint of the buildings they cover. Lighter-colored paint on the exterior of commercial buildings can keep the interior energy-efficient by better regulating the temperature and climate. This can also help reduce energy use and electric costs.
Choosing low- or no-VOC paints and coatings helps everyone within the business breathe easier, and property and facility managers need to do everything they can these days to improve indoor air quality.
We recommend doing some light research to see which colors do best in your specific industry and location. For example, one way to make your brand instantly recognizable online and off is with a striking exterior paint job. It drives foot traffic into brick-and-mortar retailers, looks great in rental property listings, and could even work to increase the value of your property and thus the price you can charge for rentals.
Businesses and buildings are using exterior paint as an extension of their branding, either with their signature colors or with walls that create an instagram-worthy digital canvas for anyone who wants to feature your storefront in their social media feeds.
