4 Commercial Interior Painting Projects to Consider This Winter

Your customers rush through your doors to escape the cold. They breathe a sigh of relief when they feel your room's warmth envelop them, but the heat isn't the only thing that immediately catches their attention. Your room's colors do.

Research shows that nine in 10 people experience worsening moods in the winter. This is where colors come into play. The right paint hues in your commercial building can boost customers' moods and energy levels.

Are you looking to spruce up your space with new paint this winter? Let's explore four commercial interior painting projects to consider.

1. Paint Accent Colors

The best winter interior painting projects for businesses involve adding accent colors to your rooms. This can quickly and easily transform your space.

Painted trim is one of the top paint trends today. Paint accents may instantly highlight your building's architectural elements, including:

  • Picture rails (horizontal molding near ceilings)
  • Archways
  • Deep skirting (wide baseboards)

Painting baseboards and window frames can help you stylishly inject color into your room. Add paint to door frames that divide two rooms to subtly zone your space, defining various areas.

A popular baseboard color is classic white, which provides a timeless and clean look. White can also blend effortlessly with different architectural styles and color schemes. Another idea is to make your baseboards the same hue as your walls to create a harmonious and cohesive appearance.

Window frames are usually painted the same color as the baseboards. This can help produce a coordinated and unified look.

An alternative is to make your window frames a different color from the baseboards to make them pop. Let's say your baseboards are white. Make your window frames a complementary hue like beige or light gray.

Paint Accent Walls

Another way to use accent colors is to create an accent wall. Use a bright and bold paint color on one wall to contrast the room's other walls. Paint one wall blue and the others a sandstone color for a beachy vibe.

Paint Interior Doors

Adding colorful paint to your doors is another way to create visual interest in your business. You don't have to keep your doors wood-colored or white. Paint just a vertical stripe on each door to create a luxurious touch if you don't paint the entire door.

Popular door colors include dark or light gray since these neutral, versatile colors match all color schemes and can create an elegant and modern look.

Choose soft pink for a feminine and playful hue to add charm and warmth to your commercial building. It's the perfect color for a boutique selling vintage (old-school but high-quality) accessories, jewelry, and clothing.

Paint Picture Frames

Does your commercial building's walls have pictures? Add paint to your picture frames to upgrade your business's look.

This is the perfect way to turn bland frames into vibrant, unique works of art. It'll also make your rooms' paintings more striking, allowing them to stand out.

Are you feeling creative? Decorate your frames with custom-patterned designs to enhance the artwork. These designs could range from stripes to abstract shapes and checks, which may make your wall art even more captivating.

2. New Business Brand Colors on Walls

The top commercial painting ideas include switching up your wall paint as part of your company's rebranding efforts. This project could involve painting a new logo on your walls and replacing your walls' existing colors with new paint colors reflecting your vision.

Start by selecting the hues that best reflect your industry and business goals. Suppose you own an eatery. Use bright red, orange, or yellow on your walls to convey excitement and increase your guests' appetites.

Do you own a production plant or medical clinic? Consider painting your walls green since this color provides calm and peace in stressful environments.

Green also works well for educational institutions since it can stimulate creativity, learning, and exploration. That's because it reminds visitors of the outdoors and nature.

Blue is another excellent color for a business you want to feel tranquil. Use it in the office setting to boost workers' productivity or a spa to create a soothing guest experience.

3. Furniture Paint Colors

Upgrading your furniture colors is another easy way to spruce up your commercial building. Make your lobby and wooden chairs shades of blue to produce a calming effect for waiting guests.

An alternative is to paint your lobby table bright blue and keep the chairs a traditional wood color for a stylish mixture of the new and old.

4. Epoxy Flooring

Look down. Your walls aren't the only part of your business that could use a pop of color. This winter couldn't be a better time to revamp your bare concrete floor with an epoxy coating (a resinous floor material).

Painting your concrete floors may not be enough to cover cracks, chips, and stains, especially in a high-traffic area. This is where epoxy floor coatings shine.

These coatings are durable enough to hold up in the business setting. They can prevent damage from moisture by sealing your floors. An epoxy coating can also protect against the following:

  • Impact damage
  • Staining
  • Scuffing

Epoxy coatings can make your building simple to clean and safe with their slip-resistant surfaces. They're also a great way to make your business attractive since they come in many stunning finishes and colors. Adding shimmer to your concrete floors is a breeze with epoxy.

Kim Baker

Bruno is doing a good job in his new roll as project manager and Sal is the best painter that leads the crews for Phonak work projects. I get them started and they take it from there with very little monitoring on my part. I also like the partial billing, the organizing of my paints and if possible a year end report on what we spent on patching and painting would be great.

Mike Moore

Excellent workmanship, I didn't have to check your work. Paul and Alfonso were polite, and conscientious and treated my house as if it was their own.

Rick Orna

Paul is an excellent painter. He was very tidy and easy to work with. Paul did a great job matching the color of our front stain and his work is professional. Paul was on time and good at communicating. I would definitely recommend Precision Painting to a friend.
