What is Commercial Decorating?

Over the past few months, we have been developing a better understanding of our business and the industries we cover by utilising some “what is” blog posts. This month is no different. So, what is commercial decorating?

Really, what is it?

To put it as simply as possible, commercial decorating is not a million miles from domestic decorating, it’s just normally on a larger scale with more industrial materials. The functions of the process are truly down to the specific task at hand, but can include plastering and plaster boarding, decorating covering, interior and exterior decorating, wallpapering, tiling, painting (including traditional techniques like lime washing and marbling), vinyl covering and sign writing.

Each and every business will require different processes to achieve the appearance they desire, but these are some of the main pillars of commercial decorating that are likely to be offered by the commercial decorating contractors you contact.

The importance of commercial decorating

As much as it is often shamed to be ‘superficial’, or to care about appearance, commercial decorating is essential for attracting customers and portraying the ethos of your company. Customers are more likely to interact with your business if they can appreciate the effort made to present yourselves well, this is true with every aspect of life. If you go onto a website, and it doesn’t appeal to you visually, will you leave? Do you trust it? We all know the answers to these questions, and it just goes to show the importance of commercial decorating in presenting your business well by consciously improving, and then maintaining, an appealing appearance.

The main goals for properly decorating your commercial space can depend on the sector of your business. For example, the main goal for a B2B business will most likely be creating a comfortable, enjoyable environment for employees. Whereas, industrial warehouses are to be decorated to promote a safe and clean area for work to be carried out.
