When an office needs to be painted there are a lot of things to consider. In many cases, the office building is painted to represent the business or company where company colors are used. Other times office are painted to ensure productivity. L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc would like to walk through some of the top considerations from color, to finish, and long term maintenance for office buildings.

Choosing Paint Finish for Walls

For an office that has a lot of daily foot traffic it is important to choose a durable paint that can withstand high traffic areas. It is often recommended by professionals to use a high quality semi-gloss paint. High gloss paint is also durable but super reflective and can cause headaches. Semi-gloss isn’t too reflective and is easy to keep clean. Other paint types such as flat, matte, or eggshell do not last as long. They often peel, bubble or chip and do not do well in high traffic areas. There are a lot of benefits to using a semi-gloss paint in an office setting. They are easier to be maintained and cleaned. Semi-gloss paint lasts longer and even hides flaws in the wall.

Corporate Office Paint Colors

In an office setting it is important to have the right colors on the walls. Many offices with white walls are boring and can cause boredom among office employees. The office just isn’t an exciting place to be. Some office managers or owners will paint the walls to match the company color. However, be careful how you use your company color. Many companies use bright colors to attract business. Using the company color is sometimes a bad thing in an office setting. It is recommended not to use super bright colors on the walls. However, company colors can be incorporated. There are a number of ways you can use accent colors in the office. In an office, bright colors can be used for trim, an accent wall, or as patterns. If the owner or manager doesn’t have or want to use a company color, they still might want some color in the office. Office settings can be painted softer colors of blues, greens, and grays. The walls can be incorporated with a number of different colors but don’t make the colors too intense. Bright colors can be used, but again, not too much. Use brighter colors as accents. It is good to make the office an interesting place to be and paint color can help accomplish that kind of environment.
