A commercial building that is inviting and well maintained is an asset to any neighborhood. Choosing exterior paint color palettes for a commercial building is very different to choosing exterior paint colors for your home. Good use of color will help draw customers to your building and enhance your business.
Exterior Building Color Schemes
Commercial buildings are typically larger than residential homes, so a good starting point is to utilize a selection of neutral colors which will blend well with the buildings surroundings. Neutral colors will also enhance your business logos or other types of exterior signs and allow the signage to “pop” against your neutral color scheme. Compliment neutrals by using bold colors on accents, such as trim and doors. If the commercial building is in an area that has historic significance, your options will be limited to those approved by the governing body; plans will need to be submitted for approval before any changes are made.

The knowledgeable artisans at L.W Winslow Painting recommend taking these two factors into account when choosing accent colors with your neutrals:
• Type of business
• Customer demographics.
Keep in mind that the use of color associations for a commercial business should be dependent on what type of business it is. Here are some examples of color associations with neutral palettes as the primary base.
• Red, yellow and orange are dynamic colors commonly associated with food. Red is a good color for restaurants and food stores.
• Green denotes a feeling of calm and tranquility. Blue greens are commonly used for medical clinics. Combinations of green and light browns are often used to give a building a feeling of spaciousness and comfort.
• Blue shades bring with them a sense of restfulness and are considered a very clean color. Blue is also a traditional color and is often used in law firms and other time honored business setting.
Tailor Color Choices to Audience and Customer Base
While some colors palettes are considered classic and others considered bold, your choices should be dependent on what type of customers you want to draw to your business. An older demographic is typically drawn to sedate colors while a younger crowd often prefer a more intense color palette.
