5 Great Reasons to Paint the Interior of Your Home

Commercial Painters in Philadelphia

Our team of commercial painters in Philadelphia are some of the best in the business, but we understand that some people might not know how to pick paint colors for their commercial space. Whether you’re painting a gymnasium or a hospital, there are several factors to consider. Find out how to choose the right paint colors for your commercial property.

Picking Colors

Many people mistakenly think that the colors they see in their kitchen swatch books are what they’ll see in their offices, which isn’t true. Color will react differently depending on whether it’s consistently lit or if it’s only lit at certain times of the day. Depending on how bright the light is, colors can look different. A lot of colors are also very dependent on how they’re lit. If you don’t understand how colors will look in your space, it’s a bad idea to choose colors that you don’t think you’ll be able to live with.


Some of our clients prefer colorless spaces and offices. When your office doesn’t have colors, it’s easier to work in them than if there are a lot of colors all the time. Our painters are fully capable of painting offices in white, gray, and black shades. If you’re thinking of going this route, it’s a good idea to choose colors with the same value so you don’t have multiple dark shades on your wall.


If you have a lot of color in your space, it’s usually a good idea to choose paint colors that complement each other. Complements are two colors that compliment each other when they’re placed next to each other and exactly opposite from one another. For example, if you have a dark red wall and pale blue walls, you could place the dark red next to the pale blue.


When colors are placed next to each other, it’s essential to choose colors that contrast nicely. Often, people don’t understand that darker colors on a lighter background look like they aren’t even there when they’re placed next to each other. This is why it’s a good idea to use contrast when choosing colors.

Stripes & Patterns

If you have a wall with multiple colors on it, it’s essential to use only one color and avoid using stripes. Stripes blend and make your space look cluttered when the light hits them. It’s a good idea to choose patterns instead of stripes. We advise you stick with solid colors for patterns that don’t have patterns in them.


It is something that most people don’t think about when choosing paint colors for their space. It’s good to pick paint colors with the same texture, so you don’t have different textured walls. For example, if you’re choosing paint colors for your office, it’s a good idea to choose the same or similar textures, so your office doesn’t have multiple different textures on the walls.
