Here is a list of colours and what impact they can have on your office and the people in it
The correlation between the colour of your office and the levels of motivation, productivity, and happiness is an interesting topic. Many people don’t realise, but the colour of your office can have a significant impact on both your employees and yourself. As a guide, we’ve listed the most popular colours used in office design and how they impact motivation, mood, and productivity.
Yellow is considered an ’emotion’ based colour. It is said to stimulate your spirits and ego, thus making you more optimistic. It’s because of this that yellow is a good choice for an office that requires creativity and innovation, such as a design agency.
Blue is normally regarded as the most productive colour. It’s said to create a calm and stable environment and can produce higher levels of productivity and helps people focus. Therefore blue is a great colour to surround yourself with in a stressful work environment.
Red is closely linked with physical activity. It is said to stimulate you physically and it has been shown to increase blood flow and heart rate. It addition to this, it can also invoke feelings of emotion and passion. Red is great if you have something in the office that needs to be alerted too.
Green is a calming colour that doesn’t cause your eyes to feel fatigue. It can increase your efficiency and is therefore perfect in an environment that needs a strong sense of balance. This is a great choice for use in an office where long working hours or overtime is often required.
Choosing the perfect colour to surround yourself within the office will depend on a number of factors. Who will be in the space and what will they be doing in there? Whilst there is a lot to consider when it comes to the colour psychology in an office, it also gives you a brilliant chance to showcase the brand and culture of your company.
