How professional painting and decorating enhances educational settings

Providing a fascinating education goes beyond curriculum and teaching methods. A school’s physical appearance plays a crucial in creating an engaging learning environment and in student success. Therefore, professional painting and decorating is incredibly important for educational establishments.

Whether you’re looking for a touch-up and refresh or a complete refurbishment, painting contractors and commercial decorators can help. Do you want to find out more about how painters and decorators can enhance your education setting?

Why is strategic painting and decorating important for education?

Students who are surrounded by clean, bright and exciting learning spaces are likely to feel a stronger sense of pride and belonging with their school. This sense of pride and belonging increases student engagement with the school and their learning. 

According to a study by the University of Salford, a well-designed classroom can boost primary school students' learning progress by 16% in a single year. This is because a visually appealing learning environment influences student motivation and behaviour. 

One way to impact student learning through painting and decorating is by choice of colour. Colour has a significant impact on human psychology. In education settings, this can be used to your advantage. 

The strategic use of colours can enhance students' focus, creativity, and well-being. For example, blues and greens are calming, while yellows and oranges stimulate energy and attention. This could impact the decision to paint classrooms orange while selecting blues for break-out areas. 

Quality painting and decorating for the education sector

Many people use academic institutions like schools, colleges and universities on a daily basis. Therefore, any paintwork must be incredibly durable and maintained over time. This makes choosing a painting contractor like Intertech Contracts a brilliant decision.

Selecting commercial decorators for your education project can ensure excellent results. The quality, finish, and durability of professional painters and decorators’ work are nothing short of impressive.

Regular maintenance is also advisable for education facilities. Having painters and decorators address wear and tear on a regular basis can prevent damage from escalating into a major problem. This can be cost-effective in the long run, meaning your school benefits from a modern learning environment and from getting the most out of your budget. 

Why choose professional painting contractors?

Choosing a professional painting and decorating contractor ensures you get the results you're looking for while you concentrate on running your school as usual. As well as letting you get on with your work as usual, commercial decorators offer a number of other benefits, including: 

  • Time-efficient: Commercial decorators are trained professionals who can accomplish the job quickly while still producing high-quality work that fits your requirements. When discussing your project, your provider should outline a clear time frame for its completion.
  • Cost-effective: Painters and decorators buy high-quality materials in bulk and already have the tools necessary to complete a job. This saves you from purchasing one-time-use equipment and numerous smaller cans of paint. Before completing the project, your contractor will provide an itemised quote, preventing surprise costs.
  • Health and safety: Any contract work undertaken on your premises will be carried out with the health and safety of your students and staff in mind. Appropriate areas will be cordoned off, and safe entry and exit will always be ensured. 
  • Scale: Commercial painting contractors have sufficient resources for projects of any scale. They can even assign more of their decorators to large-scale projects. This ensures a high standard of work whilst being time-efficient.
  • Quality: Painting contractors pay excellent attention to detail, ensuring a top-quality finish when the work is completed.
  • Experience: Professional decorators can advise you on both aesthetic and practical decisions regarding your project. This ensures that you get the best use of your space.
