Commercial Building Painting Trends: Modernizing Your Property

When it comes to a commercial painting project for your commercial building, following the latest trends can help modernize the look and feel.

Giving Your Commercial Building a Facelift

Painting is one of the most cost-effective ways to update tired commercial buildings and create an inviting atmosphere for customers and employees alike. As a trusted Calgary painting company with years of experience transforming commercial properties, Earl’s Paintworks is here with the top trends to make your business stand out.

Choosing the Optimal Colour Palette

One of the most impactful decisions when modernizing your commercial space is selecting the optimal colour palette. The right colours make powerful impressions, influencing everything from first glances to extended shopping experiences. Currently, popular earthy tones like light brown, sand, sage green, and natural greens add subtle depth and closer connections to nature. Timeless neutral shades of white, grey, and black have versatile appeal across industries, providing an adaptable background for integrating brand identity accents. Vibrant pops of accent colours like deep blue grab attention, while rich wood tones bring visual warmth.

Our team specializes in building cohesive colour schemes aligned with target branding. We consider industry standards, location, services, customer demographics and your unique selling points to create custom combinations that attract your ideal audiences. The colours you choose elicit specific emotional responses. So, we incorporate colour psychology to ensure your commercial space leaves visitors with the desired feelings.

Texture & Contrast Showcase Architectural Details

Current trends combine multiple paint colours, finishes and textures to add striking visual depth. Strategic colour choices that contrast architectural details spotlight valued assets from exposed beams to high ceilings and stone elements. Accent walls in deep hues complement special structural features and displays of quality craftspersonship. Multi-layered paint techniques replicate expensive wood finishes at a fraction of the cost. Leveraging colours, sheens and textures to accentuate key design components takes interior merchandising beyond products to the space itself.

Exterior Painting for External Brand Integration

Along with signage, a property’s exterior paint scheme makes a pivotal first impression, playing a major role in defining perceptions of a brand. Earl’s Paintworks helps companies showcase what makes them special through strategic exterior painting. Darker shades add a modern dimension, while light neutrals paired with key brand colours communicate unique styles from the curb. Distinct colour blocking, artistic murals of products, custom textures, and inspirational phrases turn entire exteriors into moving advertisements. Investing in professional exterior painting ensures your property will attract the right attention in crowded markets for years.

Transforming Buildings Through Quality Paint

A fresh coat of premium paint goes a long way toward revitalizing tired properties into inviting, captivating spaces. Paint has the transformative power to make commercial buildings stand out while conveying brand identity and values through strategic colour psychology tailored to target demographics.

Long-Lasting, Creative Interior Painting

Earl’s Paintworks uses the most durable interior paints, so your surfaces maintain visual impact despite heavy commercial use without fading or damage over time. Our painting technicians have specialized training to deliver creative solutions, including multi-textured finishes. We incorporate innovations like magnetic coatings so business owners can update branded content quickly. With Earl’s Paintworks, your interior painting projects deliver on-trend colours across walls, hanging art, divisions and floors for maximum appeal aligned with branding goals for your space.

Protecting Exteriors Through Painting Services

While captivating interiors showcase hospitality, reliable exterior painting directly protects the structure, preserving functionality, safety, and property value. Services range from repairing cracks, sealing roofs, and covering graffiti to simply refreshing faded paint. Proper exterior painting is crucial maintenance with our extreme weather. Durable coatings withstand sun, temperature shifts, rain, hail and snow, guarding against deterioration. With numerous treatment options available, exterior painting requires an expert eye to properly assess and restore properties over time. Earl’s Paintworks provides essential exterior painting Calgary businesses rely on to maintain safe, appealing spaces customers value.

We hired Earl and his crew to paint the baseboards & walls of our basement. He is very good at answering emails and texts. Also is punctual when meeting for quotes and doing the work. I specifically wanted our baseboards lacquered and NOT brush or roller painted. It cost more, but the results speak for themselves. The basement was left clean and the furniture well covered. Great work from this company. Would recommend

Recently Earl painted the exterior of our house. The structure was very challenging and needed an enormous amount of prep work. Earl and his crew showed up every day on time and went full tilt for 4 days to get all the prep and painting done. The paint was all brushed and rolled.They were very professional and it was obvious that they take pride in their work.I did have trouble deciding on the colours and after a couple of stressful months, I followed up with a colour consultant that Earl recommended. It was money well spent and we are very pleased with how it turned out.I would not hesitate to recommend Earl and his crew.
Earl and his team helped me dramatically improve the interior of a recently purchased 1960 Bungalow. They prepped and painted the main level completely (ceiling, walls, windows, door jams, etc.) and did some painting in basement as well. Easy to work with from the start to finish. Great job, on time, and at a reasonable price. I highly recommend Earl’s Paintworks. I will most likely be using their services again soon!

Earl is the best in the business! We hired Earl to paint the exterior of our 106 year-old heritage home that was in disrepair. Our house is a craftsman bungalow that required highly detailed workmanship. Because of the uniqueness of the house, and its heritage value, we were nervous to hire the job out to just anyone. We met with a number of companies and Earl's Paintworks stood tall above the rest. We loved that Earl was an owner/operator and knew after talking to him that he'd take great care with our beloved home. We weren't wrong! Earl and Jeremy were meticulous - sanding every nook and cranny to ensure a perfect finish that would stand the test of time. We wanted a tri-colour scheme to show off the home's craftsmanship, which required a lot of taping, cutting, and intricate work. Our neighbours would stop by to compliment Earl and Jeremy - blown away by the precision and quality of their work. Both my fiancé and I were sad to see them leave. Earl and Jeremy had become fast friends, always making time to stop and visit with us (despite putting in long days of hard labour). Couldn't recommend them enough! If you are looking for a painter, do yourself a favour, and stop here.

We recently hired Earl's Paintworks to repaint the entire interior of a newly-purchased home and could not be more pleased with the quality of the work and exceptional service provided from start to finish. We were on a very tight timeline & Earl (the owner) and Jeremy showed up ready to work 30 minutes after we took possession of the house. They put in long hours to finish the job in only 8.5 days, despite the fact that it was a massive project (3 storey house with over 30 windows/doors to paint around and some 20ft ceilings). The care they took to cover our hardwood floors, carpeting and cabinetry was remarkable - not a drop of paint left anywhere it didn't belong.Earl was truly a pleasure to work with, responded to our questions in a timely & friendly fashion, and provided knowledgeable (and realistic) advice on different finishes and colour options. He even went above and beyond to point out some small repairs that needed to be addressed around the house which was helpful to us as new owners. We had 4 different companies quote on the job and chose Earl's Paintworks based on a gut feeling that Earl was the right choice. Very happy with our decision - so much so that we're hoping to have them back this summer to do the exterior of our house as well.We would recommend Earl's Paintworks to anyone without hesitation. If you're looking for a hardworking, locally-owned company to do an efficient, professional, super high quality job, this is it!

We wanted the interior and doors repainted in our home in preparation for selling. We obtained a couple of quotes from painters. We ended up choosing Earl due to our positive interactions with him.This is a small but very professional company. It was good to work with a smaller company where the person painting your home is the actual owner and therefore, someone who took full responsibility for the work. Earl was very helpful with colour suggestions. He was easy to communicate with via both emails, phone calls and text. Earl was a perfectionist. He finished our 2 level 2000 sq ft home in about 6 full days. He came a few weeks later to do the exterior doors (garage and entry) when the weather was warmer.I would not hesitate to recommend Earl's Paintworks.
