The Edmonton Business Owner’s Guide To Painting For Success
In our western culture, red is often associated with anger (maybe because we often see red writing in negative situations such as marking red on a test or a negative bank statement), however, red can also mean excitement, passion, playful, youth, and creativity. Studies show that the colour red is also associated with impulsive and reckless behaviour. This may seem like a great idea to get your customers to buy impulsively, but remember you and your employees have to work in it all day, so choose this colour wisely and for the right reasons!
Other Businesses That Use Red: Coca-Cola, Netflix, Target, Lego, Pintrest, CNN
Orange is a bold colour that represents a cheerful outlook, quality, friendly, and confident. It is usually associated with products and services that give you a good bang for your buck. While some higher end retailers have gotten away with using orange, it is typically saved for lower cost establishments.

White can be great for a logo. It’s modern, calm, neutral and represents balance; however, you may want to avoid painting your room in all white. White is like a blank canvas for the mind, and if immersed in it too long, it is easy to get distracted from the task (or product) at hand. Think about how boring it is to live in an all white rental!
