Painting Your Grocery Store, Retail Store, or Other High Traffic Commercial Building

Table of Contents

A grocery store may not be the first business you think of when it comes to commercial painting, but it is important to our everyday lives. From the produce aisle to the deli market, the mechanics behind painting a grocery store are the same as any other business with high foot traffic. When daily work includes spills, messy work areas, and the like, the need for easy maintenance is essential. 

Think about the last time you stepped foot into your local grocery store, did you notice the way you felt inside? Chances are if the painting, lighting, and displays were done well you spent more time there than you may have intended. (Think Target superstores!) This is because how a space makes us feel is directly linked to the colors and layout of a space. Learn more about the benefits, types of paint, and best color choices for grocery and retail stores from the experts at Streamline Painting.

What are the benefits of painting a grocery or retail store?

The benefits of painting a store, or any commercial building for that matter, might not be immediately apparent. It is a known fact that an inviting and cheerful-looking space is beneficial for customers, but benefits go beyond experiential. 

A fresh look inviting people into your commercial building is important, and paint is one of the most effective and budget conscientious ways to make an impact on the appearance of a room. A brightly colored space will make customers feel more welcome and they may be more willing to spend time staying and looking around your store. Customers want a clean and friendly environment when they visit, and fresh paint is easier to keep clean of spills and other daily stains that happen.

Painting your retail space can also help with employee performance and retention as it can create a happier environment that feels clean and well-cared for. Now more than ever, it is important to create a warm, welcoming environment that is uplifting. Painting can be a great way to do this without spending a lot of money

colors in retail spaces

What color should be chosen?

When it comes to choosing a color for a grocery or other retail store, there are many different options available. Bright colors such as yellow or orange can make the space feel more cheerful and inviting. Alternatively, cool colors such as blue or green can create a calming effect. It’s important to choose a color that will reflect the personality of your store as well as bring about a sense of safety, balance, and wellness.

What type of paint is best?

There are many different types of paint that can be used for interior projects, so it’s important to choose the best one for your needs. Retail stores need durable and stain-resistant paint that will last long. The type of paint used will also affect how long the color lasts and how easy it is to clean. 

The option most commonly found in grocery stores or other commercial buildings is usually latex paint. This is because it is durable and easy to clean and maintain. Your professional contractor will be able to give you suggestions on what type of finish and primer to use as part of your project during your estimate.

When is the best time to paint a retail space?

Scheduling an interior painting project for a high-traffic area may seem complex, but your painting contractor should be able to handle the details with ease. Many professional painters offer flexible work schedules to come into your building after closing or during slower times and complete projects efficiently, with minor disruptions to your business. One of the more important parts of painting a grocery store or other retail space is effectively communicating with your employees and customers, notifying them that updates are happening around your store. Having your commercial space painted may even create a buzz of excitement.

Caring for your grocery or retail store or other commercial building that is frequently visited by customers is one of the most important ways you can communicate that you care about the community and the people who visit your business. By making improvements to your building, you can create a space that is friendly and welcoming to all who enter. Choosing the right color and paint for your next commercial interior project is not to be taken lightly. It’s best to find a painting company that will work with you and focus on your needs and knows the industry well enough to recommend the best products for your building
