Are your office walls painted a nice crisp shade of white or even more exciting beige – if you answered yes, it may just be time for a little makeover. With all of the things we know these day about colors and how they affect your mood and productivity, wouldn’t you want to grab a paint brush and fix a detail that could drastically improve your office design and ultimately your sales.
The paint color you decide to use in an office space design can be a tedious decision if you think it through. Everything from red to black provides a different feeling and brings out different sets of emotions. You must also consider that many office buildings are rented and most renters don’t just let tenants go and paint the walls bright orange.
If this is the situation you are in, have no fear I have a loop hole… and these days who doesn’t love a good loop hole. If you cannot convince your building manager to let you paint your walls a nice shade of calming blue or a de-stressing shade of green or yellow, you still have the ability to accessorize and the more neutral the wall the easier accessorizing becomes. The accessories can be anything from new task chairs, new art for the walls, or even a new panel system like Kimball’s Narrate.
In an office space, it is recommended that you stick with shades of blue to help you concentrate or green as it is not taxing on your eyes. Red raises your heart rate so if your job is something physically demanding then that is an awesome accent color to use, but it may be stress-inducing for someone sitting at a computer all day.
