Spruce Up Your Office

Posted by Sam Sundeleaf on Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Home makeovers are a hot topic - painting the kitchen, the family room or the bedroom can consume our time. We spend a great deal of time considering the right color to achieve just the right effect. But since we spend just as much time at the office as we do in the bedroom, perhaps we should consider a professional paint job in the workplace.

Just as with any room in the home, the color choice for the office or workplace will be of utmost importance. The office colors should reflect your business. If the business is a design business, a dance studio or something creative, consider bright colors like orange, yellow or even bright pink.  However, if the business is a traditional office setting such as a law office, a doctor’s office or bank, neutral colors such as taupe, cream or a light blue or green would be more appropriate.

To create some pizzazz in any office setting, consider an accent wall or ceiling color with a variant shade of the wall color.

If you are painting a conference room or central office space where ideas are shared, one area of the wall can be squared off and painted with chalkboard paint.  The wall then becomes functional for meetings, ideas and other office-wide messages. Or consider the new whiteboard paint from IdeaPaint to transform a small area or an entire wall.

As with any paint job, Apogee Painting will assist you in choosing the best products for the room size, lighting and office needs. Before beginning the actual painting, the walls will be professionally prepared and prepped to guarantee the best possible finish.

Look forward to going to the office each day. With newly painted walls and coordinated accessories, the office will be an inviting, productive place.

Here are a few before and after pictures from a dental office painted last month by Apogee Painting:
