Commercial property is a significant investment that you want to protect. One way to curb appeal and maintain your property is by painting it. For your paintwork to count, choose a paint that reflects light. Flat paint will rarely reflect light or shine. On the other hand, eggshell paint has some luster, while semi-gloss is shinier than eggshell and flat.
There is a wide range of paint finishing options for commercial property. For impressive results, consult a professional painter to help you choose the right paint for your commercial space.
Here are hacks to select the best painting options for your commercial property.
- Consider the Traffic
Wearability is a crucial consideration when choosing the right paint finish for a commercial property. Walls in high-traffic commercial spaces need a washable paint finish.
The most common finishes for such areas are semi-glosses and eggshells. These finishes are easier to clean than matte and flat finishes. As you choose the right finish, ask yourself how many times the wall needs to be wiped down or washed.
- Consider Imperfections
If you want to paint an old or blemished wall, a matte or flat finish is preferable because it hides imperfections. Generally, flat finishes are not reflective, and thus they do not draw attention to lumps, scuffs, nicks, or bumps.
They offer a smooth appearance, even when the wall has blemishes.
- Flat or Matte
This group of paint finishes is affordable and easy to apply, but daunting to clean. If your commercial property has low traffic, like an executive office or a board room, a flat or matte finish will do. On the contrary, if it’s a high traffic space, choose a durable shiny finish.
- The Environment
In wet areas, gloss paint is preferable. The gloss component on the paint seals the paint to prevent moisture. On the other hand, a semi-gloss finish is preferable in high-heat environments.
Additionally, in high light areas, the eggshell finish does best. Eggshell goes a long way in brightening up walls in low light, such as in the late afternoon, or early morning. The finish also tones down bright light during the day.
- Color Psychology
Color has a significant impact on mood, but not as much as paint finishes. For the best mood in high-energy areas, choose a glossy finish. In addition, for a subdued and quiet area, a flat shell finish will do well. Every environment has a matching paint finish. For example. A matte, flat, or eggshell finish is suitable for restaurants to outshine your experience.
These paint hacks will help you choose the best finish for your commercial property. If you are not that familiar with paints, consult a professional painter to help you select the best option.
