Want Your Vehicle to Look New Again? Consider a New Paint Job

So you’ve had your vehicle for at least a few years and you’re ready for a change. There’s no need to go out and buy a new car if yours isn’t that old yet. Instead, consider getting a complete vehicle paint job. A new color will make your car feel like new again. Use the following tips to help you choose a new color you’ll love for years to come.

Know which colors are “safest.”

Are certain colors really riskier than others when it comes to cars? This might seem like nothing more than an old wives’ tale, but there’s actually some merit to it. Black cars are more likely to be involved in an accident than white cars, no matter what time of day it is. This is because white cars reflect both sunlight and headlights much better than black cars, which enhances their visibility. Because of this, you might get a better quote on your insurance premium if you paint your car white instead of black. Additionally, some people think that painting your car red or yellow makes you more likely to get pulled over. Proof of this isn’t yet forthcoming.

Consider the role of color psychology.

What do you want your car’s new paint color to say about you? Color psychology is the association of positive or negative emotions with certain colors. For example, silver cars are seen as technologically advanced, classy, and luxurious. Brown cars are seen as rugged, durable, and reliable. If you want to inspire feelings of calmness—which is definitely a good thing while behind the wheel—choose a shade of blue.
