With our decades of experience helping clients transform their multi-family properties, we understand the importance of selecting the right colors. This can be especially important when trying to make your property stand out from others in your surrounding areas. 

Our team of painting, coating, and repair professionals understands the unique nuances that go into choosing the right color, including:

  • Color Vibrancy. The ability of colors on your buildings to be eye-catching and draw attention from both potential and current residents. 
  • Color Scheme. The combination of colors that your property selects for the exterior of each building.
  • Color Finishes. The final coatings and color finishes that are added to help protect the paint on all exterior surfaces. 

But don’t just take our word for it, see what Kimberly Laten, President of Color Design Development Group LLC has to say about color for multi-family properties.


“The exterior of your community is the first thing prospective tenants will observe. The cleanliness, landscape, and fresh paint show the residents and prospective tenants that the property is well maintained and inviting. Choosing certain colors can make your property stand out or fit in, attract or repel prospective residents.”

Kimberly Laten | President of Color Design Development Group LLC

We know just how important it is to choose the right color for your properties to provide you with long-lasting value all the way up to your next repaint. That’s why we encourage you to use the Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer to try different colors on your property and see how they might look before you make a final decision.

If you’re unsure of how helpful this tool might be, just listen to what the President of Color Design Development Group LLC and professional designer Kimberly Laten has to say, 


“Renderings are the easiest way to rule out or help select the appropriate colors for your community’s buildings. They give you the whole picture and show how the colors may represent your property in real life.”

  • Stay up-to-date with current color trends, especially ones that are specific to your exterior surfaces (Ex. Popular colors for wood or stucco)
  • Consider your roof color when determining the color scheme you want for your property because its color most likely won’t change
