No matter the size of the business, the design of a commercial building plays a crucial role in its success. From eye-catching aesthetics to practical functionalities, the details matter.

So what makes a commercial building truly stand out?

Here’s everything you need to know.

The Best Qualities of Commercial Building Design

When it comes to commercial building design, there are several factors that contribute to a building’s success. Here are some of the top qualities that make commercial buildings stand out:

Exterior Aesthetics

First impressions matter. The exterior of your building should reflect your brand and attract attention. Consider modern materials, sleek lines, innovative designs, and a focused design perspective.


A well-designed landscape can enhance the building’s appeal and provide a welcoming atmosphere. We recommend incorporating greenery, water features, and outdoor seating areas to create an inviting environment.


Your building should clearly represent your brand. Use signage, logos, and colors that align with your company’s identity.

Exterior Facades

The exterior walls of your building are a critical element of its design. Explore different materials, textures, and colors to create a unique look that really stands out.


Ensure your building is accessible to everyone. This includes ramps, elevators, and clearly marked entrances to comply with ADA regulations.

Parking Lots

A well-designed parking lot is essential for any commercial building. Consider using permeable pavers from TRUEGRID® to create a sustainable and attractive parking solution for your commercial building.
