When choosing a color for your office, remember that color can have subliminal effects on the mood of the room and by extension the direction of your business. Important factors to consider are the functionality of the room, the impression you want the room to have, and the people who are going to be inside. Choose vibrant colors that will keep your mind awake while you work while avoiding irritating colors such as yellow, purple, and bright red or green. Here’s a quick breakdown of commonly used colors and the environments they’re used in.
Blue: The color of the endless oceans and skies, blue has an expansive quality that makes it good for making small spaces appear larger. Blue is the favorite color of 42% of all people, and has been proven to have a calm, relaxing effect that can make people more focused and productive, making it a good choice for just about any environment. Its complement is orange.
Red: Potentially a very good or very bad choice in an office. Its a passionate color associated with love and romance, which creates a warm, inviting space, but it’s also associated with anger, causing distress in to some people. Good for spaces that require conversation and communication. It is often used as a trim or with its complement green.
Green: The color of life, green indicates growth, hope, and wealth if the shade is similar to that of a dollar bill. Good for corporate offices to suggest wealth and security. Generally used in dark hues as bright green is irritating. Its complement is red.
White: Sometimes no decoration can be the best decoration. White gives the impression of purity and cleanliness, which is why it’s used in hospitals. Be sure to keep your walls clean, since white does nothing to hide stains or marks. White can also be used as a trim or to create a canvas effect that allows you to weave in other colors.
Brown: A comfortable color that evokes feelings of security, credibility, and reassurance. Good for creating a grounded but welcoming environment. Tan, beige, and cream are among the most popular office colors for the warm effect they create and their resemblance to chocolate.
