It’s important to understand the impact of colour selection when designing/optimizing an office space. Colours are not only a reflection of particular moods, they can also help shape productive output.

The following are some important considerations to make when selecting colours for your office space.

‘Colour doesn’t actually exist in the external world. Light exists. And it’s in your brain that light is transformed into what we know as colour.

Training spaces

“Still in the blue family, turquoise is a popular colour for training rooms, as it’s been shown to inspire creativity and communication, while yellow helps people absorb and retain information, so add a little sunshine to the space – near the white board or screen if it’s a visual presentation – to help new skills sink in.”

Meeting rooms

“The colour for collaboration and concentration, green is the hue to be seen in meeting rooms and boardrooms if you want to get things done.”

Throughout the office

“Cool colours – blues, greens, greys – are popular picks for their ability to soothe, boost concentration, and minimise anxiety, but balance is key, as wall-to-wall blues, particularly in darker shades, can tip over from relaxing to melancholy without careful consideration. It’s a good idea to add warm elements and accents to up the energy levels and drive productivity with a splash of red, orange, pink or yellow. An easy way to achieve this is to paint the walls blue or green and then to add bright desk chairs, rugs or paintings to attract the eye.”

Breakout spaces

“Whether it’s a staff lounge, kitchen, canteen, even the hallways, these are the spaces to experiment with colour and express the more vibrant, whimsical side of your personality, without impacting day-to-day productivity. From a purple hallway to a sunny yellow canteen or orange kitchen, smaller spaces are ideal for playful picks which stimulate energy and invoke optimism.”’ (Stephen Lacey, commercialrealestate.com)
