(Best Exterior Paint Colors For Commercial Buildings)
Red is the most dominant color to the human eye. It pulls focus from all of the other colors. It elicits feelings of excitement, strength, and confidence – but there are also some negative connotations. It can be perceived as aggressive or domineering. Red will grab attention, but sometimes too much.
In the marketing world, blue is often seen as professional and trustworthy. Think about banks – how many of them have the color blue in their logo? This is because blue has been found to elicit feelings of trust and dependability. If these are the ideals your business strives for, blue is a great color to choose.
Green is the color of nature and wellness. Very few negative emotions are associated with the color green. It can evoke feelings of growth and serenity. Most often found in nature-based companies, green is a great color for any business trying to promote health, relaxation, and wellness.
Orange is the most exciting color. It’s vibrant and joyous and really catches the eye. It’s linked to motivation and enthusiasm. In marketing, orange is used to represent youth, playfulness, and energy. Think professional sports teams – tons use orange for their logos and uniforms.
Yellow is friendly. It represents happiness and optimism – in small doses. Too much yellow can lead to feelings of anxiety or fear. Still, yellow usually evokes feelings of joy. It also grabs attention well – it’s bright tones catch the eye. If you associate your business with happiness, a hint of yellow is never a bad choice.
Less visually stimulating than the other more vibrant colors, brown is still a great option for exterior paint. Less intense than black, brown represents structure and safety – though it can be a bit boring. Brown isn’t outgoing and some people may think it’s too reserved.
Black is the color most closely associated with seriousness and sophistication. Black is among the most professional of colors – most suits are a shade of it. It’s a very strong color, but too much black can be seen as melancholy and even evil. You don’t want to paint your whole building jet black – that could potentially drive customers away.
White can represent purity, innocence, and cleanliness. White is good for a business that wants to remain professional and seem open to the public. But be careful – too much white can evoke feelings of loneliness or isolation.
First impressions are everything. Whether it be personal or professional, the first impression someone has of you or your business helps shape how they’ll always feel about it.
Bad first impressions are not only hard to shake – they can potentially lose you money.
