Colourful panache to redecorating your office

For the longest time now, office design has followed a pretty standard approach. SImple monochromatic design accentuated by an industrial or commercial theme, overall a pretty basic format. While there is a certain dignity to the formal environment that such a  design creates, times have certainly changed.

Not only have the demands of the consumers changed, but also the demons for a workplace have undergone changes. No longer can a plain cubicle suffice as a satisfactory work environment. 

Be it the corporate ro the overall work culture development of the world, workspaces have become a place where people spend most of their awake time. Spending hours at end inside a space that is rather simplistic or plain can only seem alright until a point.

One can begin to feel the sense of monotony building up inside them. Research too has noted that a sense of being bored or monotonous repetition can take a hit on one’s mental health and productivity, both of which are rather important factors to care about. 

A simple solution to this, which is being absorbed by a lot of workplaces nowadays is to reimagine the way an office looks. A more peppy and cheerful environment can help create a work environment that is conducive to both personal and collective growth.

The simplest way to go about such an approach? Throw in some colors in the mix and watch the magic happen. 

WHY ADD COLOR TO YOUR WORKSPACE?  

 

While usually office design is rather simple with a rather neutral and basic color scheme to develop a simple surrounding. Taking a different approach, however, has a lot to do not just with aesthetics but also with the work environment.

The idea to add colors to a work space has all to do with the principles of color psychology, and the impact that they can have on one’s psyche. One can smartly maneuver the impacts of color psychology to develop a healthy work environment with positive energy and even boost productivity. 

Here are some ideas for a colorful panache to revamping your office space: 

YELLOW YELLOW, HAPPY FELLOW 

 

The best way to start your day is with a big dose of sunshine and happiness. What better color than that of the beautiful sun i.e. yellow. Yellow as a color has the aura to be able to radiate positivity, boost motivation as well as promote an innovative vibe. Having such a color be a part of your workspace can help uplift your mood as you work, helping you do better.

Especially when one begins their day, such a welcoming and lively color cna help get you in the right mind to start the day off. This is why it might be a good idea to utilize the color yellow right at the entrance of your office. You could do so in a lot of different ways. For instance, go for a yellow desk at the reception area in the foyer of your workspace.

You could also go for a wall paper featuring hues of yellow with a peppy pattern on the wall right opposite to the entrance to create the happy vibe just as you walk in. You could also pair yellow with another color of a similar nature such as orange to give it a bit more variation.

Experiment with different hues of yellow to create a stunning ombre or go all out with a bright sunflower yellow, just remember to keep the spot looking fresh and not all mellow! 

LOVE THE BLUES 

 

Blue is one of the most positive colors on the spectrum. It reminds one of the beautiful elements of nature, namely the vivid sky and the majestic oceans. Its resonance with the sky and water gives it a certain calming and soothing quality. In a workspace where anxieties and pressure runs high, having the presence of such a color can prove to be helpful.

Not only is the color blue known to have a calming and grounding effect on one’s mind but also know to help reduce anxiety and boost concentration making it the perfect choice. In particular, include the color blue in zones where you sit to work.

Be it your cabin, cubicle or around the desk areas, this color can work well anywhere. Attempt should be to stick to the lighter end of blue tones so as to not create a distracting effect rather than a positive one.To include blue, you begin simply by painting a wall mural utilizing different tones of blue.

You can also add textures replicating the sky or the water bodies with patterns such as waves or clouds etched into the design to amplify the effect. Alternatively, you could choose to flip your work desktop into a blue color to radiate the energy where you spend the most tiem working. 

COLLABORATE WITH RED 

 

Red is one tricky color to work with but rather useful if handled the right way. Usually red is a color that is rather bright and bold and considered a distraction.However, it is also the color of energy, enthusiasm and passion, emotions that are key to have in an office space.

The color red needs to be used rather mindfully to channel its positive qualities properly. The color red in particular is great for areas of collaboration and discussion. The enthusiasm and lively feeling cna help promote better and positive communication amongst peers and coworkers. You can thus put red to use in spaces such as the conference room, the common areas or the eatery zones.

The approach with red needs to be different from other colors. Rather than introducing one extremely noticeable element, you could go for smaller elements put together for effect. This could mean opting for red colored furniture, art pieces, tinted glass etc to communicate the energy of the color without disrupting the space’s balance.

Having a bright red around creates a powerful emotion in one’s mind which can help them not only think better but also collaborate better. 

CHANNEL THE GREEN POWER 

 

The color green is the epitome of peace and tranquility. It is known to be one of the most powerful and serene colors, for it is the color that signifies life and the beautiful outdoors the most.

In terms of its psychological impacts, green is known to help relieve stress and strain, while also helping boost creativity and help one stay calm even over long hours of work. It is one of the most essential colors to include in any design, be it commercial or residential to reinforce the connection with nature and its elements which is very important to have for the human mind.

To channel the power of green in your office there are a lot of different fun options to try. Firstly and the most trendy one nowadays is to add in a vertical garden wall. Even if you don't have the space for a dedicated garden wall, you can certainly make way for plants around the space, big or small depending on the space’s dimensions.

Another way to go is to try out a wall vinyl, wallpaper or mural which is centered around tones of green. Bonus points for opting for designs that represent elements of nature such as leaves, trees, grass, forest etc as those motifs can signify positivity as well. 

THE PURPLE EFFECT 

 

A color less thought of for office design is the color purple. Purple as a color is rather underestimated but its color psychology is significant of some of the finest qualities making it a worthy pick.

While centrally, purple is known to communicate luxury, it is equally representative of innovation, imagination and wisdom. In offices where ideas and innovation are our assets, having such a powerful color boosting our mind’s capability to comprehend and create can be rather helpful. Not to forget, the liveliness that comes with such a unique color can definitely boost one’s mood in a positive way. To include hues of purple, you could also look into its pastel variations.

You could go for a lighter hue of the color to run across the workspace to subtly create a calming effect. Further, you can invest in eclectic furniture pieces in bold purple colors to add a pop of freshness to your workspace.

Alternatively, you could opt for deco or even light fixtures of the color to mark its presence in a simple yet effective manner. 


Overall, colors are a necessary ingredient to a productive office design. What color you choose and how you use it is key to ensuring that your office stands out in style, aesthetic and practicality. Take a gander at the above tips and design to give your office the colorful punch it needs.
