The Benefits of Having your Commercial Building Professionally Painted News

The Benefits of Having your Commercial Building Professionally Painted - January 6, 2014

Why you should get it painted and why you should entrust a professional to do it.

A paint job will unleash a new lease of life on your business. It not only improves the aesthetics by giving it a ‘fresh’ look by deftly covering up imperfections, like marks and dents, but it can also increase your bottom line and value of your building. This is why it is recommended that you get your commercial building painted by a professional.

Why get your workplace painted?

The interior and exterior of a workplace is like a business suit – it is an image you are projecting out into the world. Obviously, to attract new customers, you want to present yourself in professional attire and not in shorts and sandals. So, in the words of Barney Stinson from television’s How I Met Your Mother, you should “Suit Up”

The same principle applies to your workplace. How are you supposed to attract clients with dreary walls and a lackluster facade? Just think of a paint job as ‘suiting up’.

Not only can a coat of paint add a touch of professionalism to your business, it can also increase employee productivity. In an essay on the effect physical surroundings have on customers and employees, Mary Jo Bitner discusses how environment influences people’s cognitive, emotional and physiological behaviour. No one wants to work in a space that has a tired, run down feel. In order to work efficiently, they want to feel comfortable and know that the employers take pride in their workplace.

Additionally, the painting scheme of a commercial building is a great way to create the mood of your business. While white walls represent professionalism, some businesses have opted to have their building splashed in their company colours. Others choose to use bold, contrasting colours to denote their innovative attitudes (i.e. advertising agencies). Whatever way you decide to go will impact how perspective customers see your business. 

Why you should use a professional painting company?

Professional painting companies have advantages over non-professional and local painters. Firstly, they have a wealth of experience in commercial painting, so they can give you advice for attaining the right mood for your office. They know what works and what doesn’t.

Secondly, they produce better and more consistent results, because they have state-of-the-art equipment, thus giving their work a standardisation that is not present with local painters.

Thirdly, commercial painters have to work to a strict schedule, so the start and ending date for a project has to be adhered to. This means that a painting project is not going to be confronted with lengthy time delays, therefore interrupting your work environment much less.

As you can see, there are some obvious benefits of having your workspace freshly painted.

If you need to revitalise your business, why don’t you contact a commercial painting company like Consummo Painting? They can provide you with all advice you need to make your building a great environment for clients and employees alike.
