Choose the Best Paint for Your Company's Conference Room
Your company's conference room hosts internal employees and external clients, so it needs to be in pristine shape and be representative of your business lifestyle and goals. If your conference room is a little drab and needs a new paint job, follow these tips to ensure it doesn't become a disastrous, time-consuming chore.
The first thing to consider before painting your conference room is the type of paint you use. For interior spaces, choose an acrylic-latex or water-based acrylic alkyd hybrid. These are low odor options and contain lower levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
The next thing to consider is what color you want your conference room to be. Paint the room green to promote efficiency and focus. A soothing yellow sparks innovation and supports creative thinking. Purple encourages creativity and is likely to impress your clients, as it is typically seen as a color of wealth, royalty, and power. Choose a mute blue for a calm and stable meeting environment. It elicits feelings of confidence, wisdom, and trust. On the other hand, research suggests painting your office rooms white reduces productivity, so avoid that and add a splash of color instead!
Finally, consider the finish you want to add. This will affect how good the color looks and how long it lasts. A flat or matte finish is a zero-gloss, affordable finish that is perfect for conference rooms. The only downside to this easy-to-apply interior paint is it is nearly impossible to clean. Other options include eggshell, satin, or semi-gloss or glossy finishes. An eggshell finish keeps the shine to a minimum, but it is a little more durable than a flat finish. Satin finishes are the most popular, as they fall in the middle of both the shininess and durability spectrum, while offering minimal reflection. Semi-gloss or glossy finishes are a better fit for interiors where you expect more wear and tear.
