Color Ideas For The Office

Work goes hand in hand with stress, and it magnifies when you’re in a stress-inducing environment which only sucks the left energy out of you. Blame this on the aesthetic qualities of most workplaces, or their lack, thereof. Oftentimes, the importance of good-looking surroundings is taken for granted. Stunning and gorgeous spaces can be very inspiring and virtually evoke good vibes, and these are vital in order for us to perform better and be more productive.

It is normally simple and very achievable to revamp and improve an office space but it’s a good plan to ask a professional interior designer beforehand. In choosing color, it is critical to be aware of the things that will be happening in each office since white walls all over are now almost obsolete. Correct use of color may boost lighting. Thus, it will create an illusion of bigger or smaller space. Color is always amusing and thrilling and every color evokes different kinds of emotion so taking time to consider your color scheme options really matter.

When movement is occurring in a space, such as the reception area, brighter colors are the perfect colors. On the other hand, paler colors are ideal in creating space and light within a room.

If you are looking for colors with high concentration, keep in mind that blue and green are found to give a sense of peace and calmness. Yellow and red are known to be thought-provoking and suggest power and bravery as well as imagination and action, making them the perfect preference for meeting rooms. Black and white combination is often perceived as the colors of power and supremacy.

However, when picking extreme or loud colors such as neon, you should be very vigilant since they can be overwhelming. Moderation is key.

Another thing to consider when choosing color is the lighting that they will ultimately be in. The more natural light there is in the room, the more luminous the colors become. Artificial lighting also has an effect on the color. Incandescent light bulbs emit a warm glow while fluorescent light bulbs create a cool glow.

Textures can also alter the color. A color painted on a grainy wood will come out different when painted on a smooth surface.

All of these are the reasons why meticulous trying and testing is crucial.

office has large mahogony furniture, blue carpeting, with florecent lighting, what color should I paint walls?

Question by Rachel: office has large mahogony furniture, blue carpeting, with florecent lighting, what color should I paint walls?
no windows, and 13 x 13, not a home office.

Best answer:

Answer by KIT J

Pale yellow or antique white (has slight yellow cast to it) is warm, comfortable. Get at least one incandescent or halogen floor lamp for indirect lighting that can be adjusted according to the intensity of light that you need at any time–and a halogen or incandescent desk lamp.

Fluorescent lighting is hard on the eye and the brain. Fluorescent lamps do not give out a steady light, instead they flicker (fluctuate in intensity) at a rate that depends on the frequency of the driving voltage. While this is not easily discernable by the human eye, it can cause a strobe effect posing a safety hazard in a workshop for example, where something spinning at just the right speed may appear stationary if illuminated solely by a fluorescent lamp.
