-Paint does more than cover the walls, colors can have a strong influence on mood, energy, focus and productivity. Frank Cueva, the Atascadero painter from Borlodan Painting Company recently released a summary of the trending colors for offices and how adding the right colors can be a benefit.
Colors for offices are trending to the usual off-white hues along with some surprising smokey blues, pink tones and green, rich café a lait creamy browns and shades of silvery gray. Every paint brand has its own name for these colors. Before starting a painting project and to be sure about getting the best quality paint and widest choice of colors, have a conversation with a leading painter such as Atascadero’s Borlodan Painting Company.
Choosing colors for office walls, and in some cases the ceiling, often comes down to a personal choice for colors that are going to look clean and professional and be bright enough to reflect lighting in a productive manner. Overall, one clean looking light color works well as a base. Other colors can be added for accents, such as an accent wall, or even patterns on a wall. Those additional colors can make a difference in worker’s ability to focus and be productive.
Psychologist World reports “The psychological effects of color have such an underpinning in research that the findings of chromology, the psychology of color, are used in designing everything from hotel rooms to cereal packages.”
Some of the colors associated with calmness, focus and productivity include:
- Green, in all it’s hues, encourages vitality and productivity. Green represents nature and also promotes inner peace and tranquility.
- Blues are associated with serenity and thoughtfulness. Research has indicated that blue lowers heart rates and promotes slower metabolism.
- Yellow cultivates happiness and optimism and is believed to influence the left side of the brain where deep thinking and perception initiates.
An experienced painter can make solid recommendations about the best paint colors for an office, home, or other commercial need.
