What Colour is the Right Colour For Your Office?

Find out how the colours in your office can both help and harm the workplace environment.

You might not think choosing a colour scheme for your office is important, but studies show it can greatly effect your clients, employees, and visitors. These effects can be subliminal, but they can help shape peoples view of the business. It is important to use colours to project the type of environment or feeling you want people to have when they enter your building. If you want a calm setting, a serious setting, or a comfortable setting colours can help you achieve this. In todays blog we break down the most popular colours and how they can effect your workplace.

Blue: is a great colour if you need stimulation. Blue is a productive colour that is also calming to people. It can help if you need to concentrate for long periods of time and evokes the feelings of trust and security. A pop of colour is a great thing to add to a blue office to give a more balanced feel. We recommend a bit of orange or yellow to warm up the atmosphere.

Yellow: is one of the best colours for jobs that are extremely creative, it stimulates and helps the flow of communication and ideas. This bright shade can give workers a playful and fun work environment to get those creative juices flowing.

Red: is a colour that stimulate physical activity, therefore it is not great in high-stress work environments. Red is best used as an accent colour to spark ambition and energy. Too much of this colour can give people the feeling of aggression or anger. Pair red with a nice green or cool grey to tone it down.

Green: is another colour that can create an extremely productive environment. Green is balanced and calming allowing people to get things done. Green creates a warm and approachable space that can help de-stress workers. It is great for offices and common areas like reception waiting rooms and with many beautiful shades it is an easy favourite.

White: is a colour that evokes serenity, calm, and cleanliness. Too much white can turn people off as being too sterile or uncomfortable, warm it up with some colours such as blue and green to give a bit more depth and interest.

To figure out what colours you should be using for your office, you must decide what will work best for your situation and what would you like to your company to portray to all the people within in.
