Found yourself working from home recently?
Struggling to stay focused and motivated?
Want to change that?
It might surprise you to know that the colour of your home office can drastically change your mood and how effective you are at your job.
Below are some ideas on how to use colour to improve your productivity when working from home.
Add to the mix the perfectly smooth walls and clean crisp lines you’ll get from a professional decorator and you’ll be well on your way to smashing your work goals!
Blue is associated with logic, communication, and efficiency. Use blue to enhance your focus, stimulate your mind and make you more productive. Blue is a great colour if you have a repetitive task you need to stay focused on.
Red is associated with urgency and excitement. Use red if you want to increase energy.
Yellow is the emotional colour. It is associated with optimism, happiness, and confidence. Use yellow when you want to stimulate your creative side.
Green will give you a sense of calmness, balance and reassurance. Green is also a great choice if you work long hours, as it is very easy on the eyes.
Orange blends the energy of red and the emotion of yellow, to give a feeling of comfort. It can give you a warm and fun atmosphere. Use orange carefully. Too much can be overpowering. Using it as a feature wall or in accents is a good idea.
Grey is tricky. When used properly it can make a space feel clean, modern and tranquil. But if used incorrectly it can be depressing. Again, consider using it to accent another colour for maximum effect.
White / soft neutrals
Using white and soft neutrals is always a safe bet. It will create a light and clean atmosphere which is good for most situations. You could add bursts of other colours with furniture or even a feature wall to get the benefits I mentioned above.
