Clever Self-Storage Painting Techniques
While it’s important for the overall design of a facility to be cohesive, sometimes it’s best to “hide” a certain aspect. This can be done in inconspicuous way with paint, as was done at Fox Den Store-It in Janesville, Wis. The swing door on the side of the building was painted to match the exterior so it would blend. Leaving the door in its original color of white would have created an eyesore. Conversely, matching it to the unit door’s green would have made it stand out for all the wrong reasons.
