The work environment affects the overall mood of a worker. A workplace is a second home for employees. Sometimes they spend even more time there than at home. Therefore, the work environment should be comfortable and positive. Every little detail, especially colors, has impact on our productivity. The right selection of colors can boost employees’ productivity and the level of happiness. Different work zones entail using different colors.
First impressions matter. The right selection of colors will create a welcoming atmosphere. The recommended colors for lobby/reception are dark green and blue. Try to avoid using too much white. Use mugs, plants, and colorful chairs to bring a lively atmosphere into the workplace. The interior design, on the one hand, reflects the corporate image and on the other hand, can cheer up the guests.
Cool colors such as blue, green, and grey are often used in the workplace as they are believed to induce calmness, increase concentration, and reduce anxiety. Remember that using too much cool color might cause feelings of melancholy and sadness. Try to bring a mixture of cool and warm colors in the workplace environment. Besides, some red, pink, yellow, and orange colors can stimulate and excite the employees, creating an energetic and productive atmosphere.
Conference rooms are created for collaborative decision making and the right selection of colors is particularly important for them. Note that using too much bright or neutral color will reduce employees’ concentration or create a monotonous atmosphere respectively. The recommended colors for conference rooms are different shades of green.
Selecting colors for an office lounge, dining room, and kitchen seems a less complicated task. The interior design for them is open to creative ideas. The company has more freedom to experiment with non-traditional color choices there. However, remember that the purple lounge, yellow dining room, and orange kitchen will cheer up the employees and boost their energy.
