Industries must decide what feelings they want to emanate. McDonald’s, for example, uses yellow and red to give off excitement and happiness, as their brand portrays those values within its advertising.

Recycling companies, on the other hand, typically stick with greens and blues – colors that represent nature, growth, and tranquility.

And what is your first thought when you walk into a doctor’s offices? The white décor and lab coats give off feelings of cleanliness and sanitization. It also radiates peacefulness, which is welcoming when you are sick.

Now imagine walking into a doctor’s office with red walls and doctors in black lab coats. Immediately you would find yourself intimidated, having negative feelings about the place right from the start.

As each color represents very distinctive traits, it is imperative you choose the color best suitable for your business’ image. Consider putting yourself in the customer’s shoes and how you would want to feel when you walk into a business. From there, choosing a uniform color is easy.
