The appearance of your office space is critical for the overall success of your company.
Many companies often like to gravitate towards colours that promote comfort, security and overall good feelings. Often times business owners will typically go for colours like beige or off white, neutral colours that will not overpower the working environment and promote comfort and security. However, you can leverage the power of accent walls and actually help your employees be more productive and creative. This will in turn, generate other positive effects within your workplace and will drive sales, revenues and moreover, give you more value for your decorating dollars.
Promote productivity within your work environment
If the space has a lot of individuals who utilize a lot of brainpower, most experts will suggest the colour blue to stimulate the mind and promote concentration. Soft blues will have calming effects that will stimulate natural tranquilizers in the brain; however, strong blues will help them tackle projects with a clear mind. Some will even recommend adding orange accents in order to help add more emotion into the area, as the colour orange will balance the blues and add warmth to the colder setting.
Inspiration for your work place
Here are a few colour ideas for your commercial painting project that can elevate your workplace to be a more productive and effective environment:
Lavender— Lavender is a more subtle version of purple. This colour is known to promote determination, clarity, creativity, or imagination this colour is ideal for marketing, technology, media, or any workplace that depends on the generation of creativity or “right-brain” thinking. Your staff would benefit from increased focus and the ability to prioritize activities and complete big projects in a timely manner.
Red— Experts would agree that red produces a stimulating effect. It gets the ball rolling by instigating communication and collaboration. Startups or entrepreneurs who have clients come into their office on a regular basis should consider accenting a particular wall with a deep red hue to inspire conversation and change.
Choosing the right colours for your work place
Colour selection for your commercial renovation or painting project can be a challenge because there is no one size fits all solution. The reaction to color depends on the individual and the workplace itself. For example, one person may find a specific colour such as red stimulating and invigorating, whereas a co-worker may feel anxious and overwhelmed. One should always approach the project from the aspect of producing the best result in alignment with company goals, for example:
- Designate different areas of the office based on brand and department
- Building brand awareness with colour choices
- Create a calmer space that will help the employees be more productive
- Energize the environment
- Provide a focal point in the office
