Body Corporate Colour Advice

When considering the best colour choice for a commercial building, it’s essential to consider the wear and tear that a property is likely to face. There can often be more tenants than owner-occupiers for many body corporate buildings, particularly large apartment complexes.

While there can be good and bad tenants in an apartment complex, typically, owner-occupiers are more likely to take better care of common areas than tenants. Plus, the turnover of tenants means common areas are more likely to be damaged due to removalists accidentally marking walls when new tenants move in.

We offer a free colour consultation service for our body corporate committees and managers. This includes a digital overlay service that allows us to take a photograph of your building and use technology to perform a side-by-side comparison of what your property currently looks like, compared to what it would look like when painted. This can give you and the body corporate committee a clear visual for what the colour scheme will look like once the paint job has been completed. This can be useful to help you all decide on the most appropriate colour for your body corporate building.

Let’s take a look at some considerations when choosing the right paint for your building.

Oil-based vs water-based paint

When choosing darker colours, oil-based coatings are our preferred option due to their durability. Selecting a low gloss finish over a high gloss finish can help reduce any marks (think small children fingerprints in apartment buildings), although high gloss finishes are typically more durable. If you want to go with white or off-white for any of your internal surfaces, using water-based paint is your best choice as often these light colours can fade to yellow within 12 months of painting when using an oil-based product due to oxidation.

Doors

For internal surfaces, we recommend darker paint which helps to reduce visibility when it comes to wear and tear. We do not recommend using light colours, particularly white, on heavily used surfaces such as external doors. These can become dirty and marked quickly due to the high traffic and can be a nightmare to constantly clean for onsite managers.

Entryways

While you want entryways to be bright and welcoming, it’s important to consider the wear and tear on the property from a practical perspective. Tan is a good choice as it’s a welcoming colour that’s warmer than white but hides any marks or damage better. Grey is another good option. To brighten the space, you can consider using white on areas like skirting but stay away from using white on doors and door frames where possible.

Entryways

Typically hallways don’t necessarily get a lot of natural light, so going too dark can be problematic as it can make the whole area feel small and caved in. Neutral colours such as grey or beige can be a good choice as they won’t go out of fashion like some brighter or stark colours can and will last longer.

Based on the condition of the building and your needs, we may recommend a number of associated painting services that you can be packaged together for your convenience.

We understand how important it is for our body corporate clients to minimise any disruption and inconvenience to residents. We work closely with managers and body corporate committees to plan our projects for minimal disruption. We spend a lot of time preparing for site set-up to maintain easy access to buildings for residents wherever possible.

We can help identify and resolve issues that may affect the property’s value. We recommend high-quality products and use best practice techniques.

Meeting Regulations

Our experience working with small and large-scale body corporate managers means that we understand the importance of meeting specific regulations of individual property charters and adhering to the rules about how particular properties need to be presented. We offer a 10-year warranty on external strata painting, and our insurance means you’re fully covered in the event of any issues.

We understand that there can be many people involved when working on body corporate projects. Given our experience, we aim to work closely with all parties and keep everyone updated with the project’s progress. We aim to manage the expectations of everyone involved, keeping residents, body corporate committees and managers updated on progress without compromising quality standards.

Frequently Asked Questions

We offer free pre-painting colour visualisation and consultation for our body corporate projects. Our experienced team can provide recommendations of colour combinations based on their years of experience, which can be done as part of the assessment for the project. We’ll chat to you about your requirements and work out a colour scheme that is not only practical but also suits your space and is visually appealing. Our digital overlay helps you to visualise the final output of the project which is useful with decision making.
Our colour consultant team typically discusses your requirements to get a thorough understanding of your aims for the project before making any recommendations. This helps us to provide a couple of ideal options for you to select from, which we find is a good approach when dealing with body corporate committees. In our experience, having too many options to select from as a group can make it difficult to come to an agreement.
You can choose any colour you want for your property. We typically use Hayme’s paints which offer a range of premium-grade products in a wide range of colours. However, we also use other brands and can tint the paint to ensure you end up with the colour you want for the property. Unlike choosing a paint colour for your home, when you select colours for body corporate or residential strata buildings, it’s crucial to make a practical choice. Colours that provide low maintenance and reduce the visibility of marks and scuffs are an excellent choice.
