At Shaker Painting, we love to see customers shake up their spaces with vibrant colors. In celebration of International Color Day, we’re highlighting some of our favorite accent colors our clients have used to revitalize their properties.

With 25 years of experience in the paint contracting industry, we’ve seen our fair share of monotone multifamily buildings and HOA communities, where every structure is painted the same boring beige. These uniform buildings not only lack curb appeal, but they’re overwhelming to look at, with no differentiation to break up their size and design. While we believe it’s important the paint on your building blends in with your neighborhood and surrounding environment, you also want your property to stand out.

Using a variety of colors, especially accent colors that create contrast, is key to achieving a balanced and visually appealing look. Accent colors can draw attention to the architectural and decorative features you want to highlight like trim, shutters, and entry ways, while diverting attention from less appealing elements, like trash enclosures and gutters. Additionally, accent colors work to complement your base color palette, helping to complete the overall look.

More than anything, a building with a beautiful paint job and complimentary accent colors boost curb appeal. Making your building or community more attractive to potential renters and buyers. After all, who wouldn’t want to live in the most eye-catching property on the block?

If you’re interested in accent colors but unsure where to start, we’re here to help! We can connect you with a Behr or Sherwin Williams paint specialist to help select the perfect colors to maximize your curb appeal. If you have a favorite color you want to use but can’t seem to find in store or online, we can help you replicate it. We can even provide renderings to visualize your properties transformation before you commit to any colors. Let Shaker Painting elevate your curb appeal!

Larry Healy
Community Manager
From the RFP to the initial walk through – from the proposal acceptance to the planning session – from the first day of work through the final day – every person at Shaker was professional, thoughtful, friendly and helpful. The project was completed well within the anticipated time frame and at a very reasonable cost. During the quality control walkthrough at the end of the project no deficiencies were noted. Every member of the community had only praise for the excellent job Shaker did. It was the best painting project I have ever been involved in as a Community Association Manager.

I think that the best part of the project was Jason Moore who was the project manager. He was always in communication and completely handled the whole project. He was extremely professional and we enjoyed working with him.

The project went great! This was my 2nd overall property paint job with Shaker. It went smoothly with no issues. It's refreshing to work with a company that meets their promises fully! Thanks for always taking such great care of us!!
Britinie Horvath
The crew did an amazing job staining the decks/stairs to our condo complex. They were very nice and did great work. I highly recommend them!
Thomas Richard Cruz
Facilities Manager
It is my great pleasure to provide this letter of recommendation for Shaker Painting Inc. Shaker Painting recently completed a full exterior trim replacement and paint of our five-story building, Broadway Junction, at 1165 Broadway, Denver CO. The Shaker team conducted themselves with professionalism and performed in a manner that was the least disruptive to all parties affected by the work. Closing-off parking spaces, managing staging area(s) for materials and the overall safety for pedestrians were some of the challenges presented to Shaker. Not a single complaint was issued for the duration of the work. Communication was excellent as Shaker personnel were required to access the roof and maintain the security setup at the building. As we have worked with Shaker on previous projects, we will continue to work with Brent Rumpf, Ed Gonzales, Jason Moore, and the rest of the Shaker team on future projects and I would recommend the same to any property and/or property management organization.
Kenneth M Hofmeister
Homeowner
Everything. From Jason's first bid to the final coat of paint with [the project manager’s] crew, we were very pleased with the communication, the attention to detail and the care with which they protected the house, minimized the sanding dust and cleaned up after the fact carefully. The worry that we would have a major cleaning effort after the fact. We were able to clean and put back all the furniture, pictures and furnishings in less than a day.
