Tips For Selecting Paint For School Buildings

by Abhinav G. Movie Enthusiast

Just like any other commercial space, school buildings also need to be updated from time to time with a new coat of paint. A new coat of paint for school buildings not only helps in making the school building look better but also instil a sense of excitement among the students & staff. Furthermore, a new paint coat can also bring a dated school environment into the modern age. 

But, what are the essential factors that must be considered before choosing the perfect paint colour for school buildings? Read on to find out more about the same. 

Recommendations For Selecting Paint School Buildings

1. Research The Different Paint Types

According to reliable commercial painters in Auckland, school authorities must select the ideal paint type keeping in mind the well-being & safety of students & staff. Some of the popular paint types are as follows:

  • Lead-based paints – These paints are considered to be toxic towards human beings and therefore should be avoided inside educational institutions. 

  • Oil-based paints – These paints tend to be more durable than other types of paint but will take a longer time to dry. Oil-based paints should be utilised in high-traffic areas. 

  • Latex-based paints – These paints exude the least amount of VOC or Volatile Organic Compounds. However, they’re less durable than oil-based paints and cannot be applied over existing oil-based paint coatings. 

2. Learn About Colour Theory

School authorities shouldn't overlook the colour palette because the wrong colour choices can reduce productivity in students & staff. But, using the correct colour palette can enhance creativity, productivity and thereby offer a calming environment for the students & staff to do their best. Some suggestions that one can follow are:

  • Classrooms – Use the colour blue inside learning spaces with selective use of yellow to keep students aware & alert. 

  • Libraries – For library spaces, the colour green is an ideal choice. It offers a calming effect and thereby enhances concentration in students. 

  • Gyms – To keep the action-level high inside gyms, it’s better to use bright colours such as deep pink or red. 

  • Lunchrooms or cafeterias – For eating spaces, orange is the ideal colour choice because the colour creates a stimulating space & thereby increases the appetite. 

  • School offices – For school offices, it’s better to opt for deep purple tones. 

  • Lobbies & hallways – Utilise bright hues with the school logo as the backdrop.

3. Always Work With Expert Commercial Painters

School painting should always be left to the professionals, which means that school authorities have to choose the contractor wisely. The authorities must be crystal clear about their budget, vision and time constraints before penning down the contract.
