Expert’s Choice for Business Exterior Colors in 2023 

Your exterior is what helps you stand out, and 2023 is all about creating more joy and letting go, so check out some of the leading expert's favorite shades.

Classic Grays

Gray has a natural ability to work well in almost any space, and for some, it may be considered a safer choice. The main thing to be mindful of is making sure it's the right hue and that you are not picking a color that is too light or too dark. 


A few great options are Stoning Gray, Cloud, and Ammonite, as they all work well by offering cool undertones and creating a subtle aesthetic for any property.

Dramatic Depth 

2023 is also about tone and darker shades, so monochromatic paint colors are on the list. They can create a dramatic flair and make your property more noticeable, especially when combined with a lighter-colored entrance. 


Hues that are dark and saturated can make the home or business stand out, and two popular options are Mysterious and Stonecutter, as they are both subtle yet compelling.

Neutral Options

Painting commercial buildings means picking the right color scheme, and another consideration for 2023 is neutral options. These can be classic colors that create a cozy ambiance and a soothing experience for employees, visitors, and customers alike. 


Hues like Steam, Natural Linen, and Pale Moon can help transform any space's exterior because they pair well with almost any other color.

Consider Color Psychology 

If you are planning on doing a commercial painting project in the near future, there are a few other things to keep in mind if you are going to go the trendy color route. 


Color experts have found different generations respond differently to colors than others, so your color choices should be based not only on who your company is but who your company is trying to attract. 


While all generations enjoy colors that promote wanderlust, such as blues and ocean tones. Millennials lean toward colors that promote mindfulness, such as soft greens, sand, and complex grays that are calming and bring nature indoors. 


Generation Z enjoys colors that mix convenience and innovation, such as bright oranges, violet, vibrant greens, and watery blues.
