How to Pick the Right Paint Color for Your Storefront

Commercial Exterior PaintingWhether you own a bakery, clothing shop, hardware store or any other type of business, the color you choose to paint your storefront could have an impact on how many customers come into your store and spend money.

Here’s how to pick the right paint color for your storefront:

First, consider any building elements you can’t change

Particularly if you’re located in a shopping center where all storefronts have common elements, like blue roofs or orange tile accents, choose colors that will complement what’s already there.

Consider the psychology of color

Certain colors tend to inspire certain emotions or types of behavior. For example, red connotes hunger and is a great choice for a restaurant. Blue, on the other hand, is calming, so if your business is a spa, consider painting your storefront in shades of blue. Do you own a discount store? People tend to associate orange with a good bargain.

Think about the local climate

Hot and/or humid climates call for light, bright colors, which reflect sunlight and don’t fade as quickly. Go two shades darker since the color will lose some of its intensity as time passes.

No matter what color you choose, a professional paint job with no cracks or chips is always a good look.
