Selecting the right colors for your storage facility can be challenging if you don’t know what to look for, consider and evaluate.

Our team of painting, coating, and repair professionals has been working with storage facilities on repaints and rebrands for decades. We understand the unique nuances that go into delivering exceptional results and the importance of colors, including:

  • Curb Appeal. Having a professional-looking storage facility that draws attention from potential customers who may pass by.
  • Recognizability. Creating a memorable brand experience with the colors you use on your buildings and roll doors. 
  • Consistency. Maintaining a consistent brand look, including colors, across all your storage facilities.

When thinking about your colors and paint, it’s also important to consider geographic factors as well. For example, if you have storage facilities in both the northern and southern climates, your colors may fade faster in your southern climate facilities due to sun exposure. This may impact the frequency in which you choose to repaint, and you might consider using products that can extend your paint’s lifecycle.

We know how important color is when it comes to the representation of your brand on your storage facilities. That’s why we encourage you to use the Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer to try different colors and see what they might look like before you make a final decision. 

If you’re unsure of how helpful this tool might be, just listen to what professional graphic designer and photo editing expert Amberlie O’Toole has to say, 

“Narrowing down choices can be overwhelming. With a rendering or color visualizer, you are able to see the color placement on particular surfaces alongside the surrounding elements. Landscaping, hardscapes, roof color, and other unpainted surfaces can change the appearance of adjacent paint colors. A rendering will more accurately represent how particular color choices will look as opposed to solely looking at a paint swatch. In addition, you also may want certain areas to be a focal point. A visualization tool can also help with that decision process. It is a simple, definitive way to narrow down different color schemes and combinations and arrive at the look that most appeals to you.”
