Office Painting

Office painting can have a huge impact on your employees productivity and improve your overall business image.

Your office says a lot about who you are as a business, so it’s important that you’re giving off the right impression and creating an environment that inspires employees. In addition to your business image and your branding, the colours you choose can have a huge impact on your employees and the way they work.

Studies have been carried out to investigate the power that colour holds within the workplace. Some effective colour choices for your office can include:

  • Blue – to inspire creativity and boost productivity
  • Yellow – to evoke feelings of happiness among employees
  • Red – to create a sense of urgency and inspire a boost in energy
  • Green – to provide a sense of balance and reassurance
  • Neutrals – to build a space for relaxation and calm

Why is Colour So Important For Your Office?

Finding the right balance when it comes to office painting is tricky, yet so important for an efficient and effective workspace. Our professional commercial painting services can provide a high quality paint job, complete with colour recommendations to ensure you’re making the most of your office space.


The colour blue is associated with the mind and is proven to create a productive environment and inspire creativity. Selecting the right shade of blue for your office walls can provide employees with the boost in productivity they may need to accomplish their daily tasks.

This is especially useful in offices where work may be repetitive, to subtly increase focus on the task at hand. Painting all walls near desks a light shade of blue, or having a show-stopping bright blue feature wall next to desk cubicles is a great way to incorporate this colour theory at your office.


Yellow is most often associated with emotion and happiness. Seeing a light, yellow shade may help employees feel happier and lift their spirits, creating an enjoyable workplace for everyone.

Selecting the right shade of yellow is important, as some brighter shades may be distracting. Choosing to incorporate yellow in your office is great for social areas where employees may spend their down time.


The colour red has many associations, though most often is seen to reflect urgency and the body. Carefully selecting the right shade of red can have a positive impact on employees who work on their feet all day in physical jobs, giving their brain subtle signals to keep working on their task at hand.

However, used incorrectly, red can be associated with danger, anger and other negative emotions, so it’s important to choose the right shade for your workspace.


Green is reassuring and represents balance in the workplace. If you have a specific area in your office that requires a calming, reassuring atmosphere, using a carefully selected shade of green will help accomplish this target environment.


Neutrals are also great for creating a calm atmosphere, and are the most common paint colour used in commercial offices. Selecting a shade that is too white may appear clinical, so opt for off-white or cream colours instead. They’re easy to work with when decorating the rest of your space, they’re a classic choice and they can look great in bright spaces that have lots of natural light.

Our Office Painting Process

Our years of experience have allowed us to develop the perfect commercial painting process, so you can work with us to decide what you want, then sit back and focus on your business whilst we take care of the painting for you. Whether we’re working with small or large projects, our process typically involves:


We begin every commercial painting project with a free consultation. We want to know exactly what you’re after and if you’re not sure, our professional painters will use their extensive knowledge to walk you through their recommendations, based on your office space and business goals.

After our consultation, we will provide you with a no-obligation quote for our professional painting services.

We want you to be able to focus on your business without interruption, so our painters are available during, or after business hours depending on your requirements. This will be covered as part of your consultation, along with other relevant information you may want us to know.


In order to obtain a smooth finish with long-lasting effective results, prep work needs to be done to your space. Typically, this will involve removing or covering any nearby items that should not be painted. For commercial projects, we realize this can often be difficult due to the nature of the furniture you may have present, so our professional painters will always take care to ensure every surface is appropriately covered before beginning work.


Our skilled painters are experienced with both interior and exterior painting projects, so we know the best techniques, paints and tools to use to provide you with good quality results for your work space.

With each fresh coat that we apply, we’re improving the branding of your business so we take the painting experience very seriously.

As interior painting means paint fumes will be present, we recommend staying away from the freshly painted space and keeping it well-ventilated until the paint is fully dry.


The final step after painting your commercial property is the walkthrough. We want you to be 100% happy with our commercial painting services so we’re always proud to show off a job well done.

Due to the busy nature of office spaces, sometimes a painting project requires some touch ups. We’re happy to come out and provide touch ups where necessary if you see any issues with the work.

FAQ’s For Office Painting Services

Q. How Much Does It Cost For Office Painting?

A. It’s difficult to provide an estimate for painting services without first seeing the space for ourselves. Generally speaking, we will determine pricing based on how many square feet you require. Customers who only want a feature wall in one small room painting as opposed to a full all-wall, 6-room office space will be looking at very different pricing, for example.

Our commercial painting services start with a consultation where we visit your property, view the office spaces to be painted and discuss your requirements with you in full.

After this consultation, we will provide you with a free no-obligation quote detailing the total cost along with any necessary breakdowns and we will explain the commercial painting process so you know exactly what to expect if you decide to work with us. Contact On The Spot today to discuss how we can help you.

Q. What Colour Should I Choose For My Office Painting?

A. On The Spot Painting offer a paint colour consultation, so we can talk you through the different colour options for your space if you’re unsure.

If you already have a specific colour in mind, we just require a sample and our experienced professionals will be able to colour match it for you.

Q. How Long Does It Take To Paint My Office?

A. The amount of time it takes to complete an office painting project depends on the size that needs to be painted. We know that you have a busy office and need to get your space back as soon as possible so our goal is to get the job done fast and well.

Our commercial painters will work quickly and efficiently to not only provide you with a quality paint job, but with a fast turnaround too, so you can get straight back to working on your business in your new, optimized workspace.
