Choosing Color For CONDOMINIUM

Things To Consider While Choosing A
Colour For A Condominium

If you’ve been driving around town looking for painting ideas for your condominium or building, you’ve probably noticed that there are two extremes to consider. 

Among the colours in one group are rows of uninteresting beiges, gloomy greys, and “what’s with all the whites?” Finally, just as you think you’re about to fall asleep behind the wheel, an explosion of vivid blue, gaudy green, and horrifying turquoise jolts you awake.

Make a Decision On The Finish To Achieve An Eye-Catching Visual Effect

Consider the finish you’ll use once you’ve chosen your colours. Despite the fact that today’s flat paints have improved stain resistance, traditional knowledge has long held that a satin (also known as eggshell) finish is better for walls because it is scrubbable and hides flaws. Semi-gloss and high-gloss finishes were deemed to be better suited to trim, where the curves of a moulding profile or the panels of a door could be highlighted.

Attract Additional Residents To Increase The Value Of Your Home

While you would never suggest that a condominium looks nice in pink, you are having trouble coming up with a colour scheme that will appeal to the majority of the new tenants who come to see your property. You know what they’ll do if they don’t like what they see: they’ll keep driving down the street like you did.

Then you realise that painting your condominium and other structures has the ability to boost their property worth. Paint isn’t the most significant financial investment you’ll make in your condo, but it’s still an investment. Painting jobs can take a long time to complete, even when the weather is nice, but what a condominium’s exterior painting misses in financial heft, it makes up for in execution.

To Add Drama, Use Dark Hues

The method of “banding,” or utilising darker hues to emphasise lighter ones, was immortalised by Frank Lloyd Wright. This dramatic look can be used on shutters, trim, and doors. Dark hues can even be used to hide defects in a structure.

Trust your instincts if you’re already thinking it’s “better to play it safe” with paint colour. And keep in mind that few things can revitalise a structure like a fresh coat of paint. When people come up in front of your freshly painted building, they will notice – and hopefully, they will put on the brakes.

Isolate The Areas That Will Not Be Painted Before You Begin Painting Them

Starting with the elements that will not require painting, such as the chimney, vinyl siding, and windows or railings or doors, you can move on to the elements that will require painting. Observe closely how these elements’ colours are arranged. Make a note of these colours and use them as a starting point as you plan the exterior painting of your condominium.

The Colour Wheel Is Something You Should Learn About

Painting contractors who are conscientious will explain the fundamentals of the colour wheel, such as how contrasting colours complement one another and how staying within a single colour family may be the best option for the exterior painting of your condominium.
