How to Transform Your Workplace with Paint


Did you know something as simple as a fresh coat of paint can make you feel better about the place you work? It’s important to feel good when we’re in our place of work. Tired looking walls and poor decoration will bring your mood down. If you’re managing employees, you’ll notice their mood improve with something as basic as redecoration. It could even help to improve your customer service! If you’re ready to transform your workplace read on to find out our top recommendations.

Give Your Metal Surfaces a Fresh Look


In order to have great looking metal surfaces, you must care for them properly. If you’re looking for a cover-up, Rust-Oleum CombiColor is a great primer and topcoat combination. With a two-in-one product like this, you can apply the paint to manually de-rusted metal, primed or previously painted surfaces. You can even apply it directly onto rust. This makes it perfect for redecorating your place of work! We love this product because it’s long-lasting and high coverage. Meaning you can cover the area you need and not have to think about recoating it. Until you decide to decorate again that is!

Create An Exciting Workspace


You can use paint in some very creative ways. Just because you’re redecorating an office or other place of work – doesn’t mean you can’t be creative. We suggest trying Rust-Oleum Dry Wipe Paint to create a feature wall that can be written on.

What do we mean? Well, Rust-Oleum Dry Wipe Paint lets you add a white surface which can be written on, and wiped clean! This paint is perfect for creating a breakout area for your employees to get together and make plans. It’s ideal for indoor surfaces like plasterboard, hardboard, wood, concrete, metal and more. Don’t be afraid to try something different!

Be Smart with Your Walls & Ceilings


Another way to make your workspace more exciting is to use bright and colourful paints on your walls and ceilings. If you have a plain office space you could even just paint the ceiling in a bright colour!

But don’t just use a standard emulsion, why not use Thermilate InsOpaint Interior Emulsion on your interiors. This paint not only provides an excellent and high quality finish, it thermally insulates your building providing a U-value improvement of 0.25 W/m2K! It dramatically reduces condensation problems, if not eliminating them entirely and provides maximum thermal insulation which has been independently tested across the world to UK, EU and ASTM standards. Condensation is the last thing you want to find on your interior walls as it can lead to damp and mould.

You can even wallpaper over this paint. A strip of an interesting patterned wallpaper could help you to create an interesting feature in a large room. All while your paint underneath will still be providing you with insulation!

We hope you’re feeling inspired. If you have any questions, get in touch.
