If you’re looking for a fresh start in 2021, you may be thinking about improving your business’s appearance with an updated paint job. A fresh coat of paint can improve the look and feel of any space. If you’re providing services to the public, first impressions are a vital part of the image you project.
Increase Profits and Productivity with Paint
A fresh, professionally applied paint job can attract more customers to your business, increase profits and boost the value of your brand. Interior and exterior paint speaks volumes about how you operate your business and can help turn one-time shoppers into loyal customers.
Studies show that paint color can impact a consumer’s perception of a product or service according to the emotion that they associate with the color of that product or service. If your customers visit your place of business, a fresh, professional paint job will project a positive image.
The right interior paint can also have an impact on your employees’ health and morale. Several paint finishes are antimicrobial and easy to clean, supporting infection control efforts. No-VOC paint reduces the exposure to harmful chemicals and compounds that could cause health issues. And not surprisingly, the psychology of color has been shown to boost morale, increase productivity, and reduce workplace stress.
Minimizing Disruptions during the Painting Process
We know that shutting down or shifting operations until work is completed may not be an option for your business. There are several steps you can take to speed up the process and minimize disruption when it’s time for a new paint job.
1. Determine if the Business Can Remain Open during the Project
Many business owners wonder what impact renovations or improvements will have on their ability to stay open for customers.
The first step before making a decision is to check with local safety and health codes related to your particular industry to ensure that it’s legal for you to remain open during painting.
You will also need to make sure that you have enough space to accommodate employees and whether or not they will be able to work onsite. There are a variety of factors to consider when determining whether to remain open or not.
If your business is open 7 days a week, scheduling will require more thought and planning. You may decide to have a paint project completed during slow times or over a holiday or a scheduled vacation closure. It really depends on the size of the project and your budget.
2. Divide the Space into Zones
Depending on the size of your business, you may be able to designate a section where painting will begin and then move onto another zone once that one has been completed. This helps keep the project organized and minimizes disruptions for both employees and customers.
If your space is big enough, try setting up an unoccupied area that separates the areas being painted from everything else. This helps reduce noise levels, improves air quality, and reduces disruptions for employees and customers.
3. Decide on a Color Scheme
It may seem obvious, but you need to decide on your color scheme before the painters start the job. Color schemes have an impact on both customers and employees, so taking time to carefully select colors beforehand is a good use of time. Switching color schemes halfway through will delay the job and add to the cost.
If you don’t feel comfortable selecting colors on your own, consulting with an interior designer about the image you want to project is a good option to consider. The painting firm you contract with can also help with color selection. An experienced painting contractor has likely painted hundreds, if not thousands, of spaces and can help you select the right colors for your business.
4. Prepare Before the Crew Arrives
Clearing the spaces as much as possible before the painters arrive is always recommended. A good cleaning - including a thorough dusting and mopping - will help ensure there aren’t dirty particles floating around to settle on fresh paintwork. And of course, removing items such as window blinds, curtains, personal items and artwork will speed up the project.
Painters will cover large office furniture with drop cloths but the clearer and cleaner the space is when they arrive, the faster the job will be finished.
