When it comes to a productive workspace, everyone has different ideas about how it should look and feel. Different hues have different impacts on how we feel. Here are the colours we recommend to create a more productive workspace. Wall Colour: Dulux Puysegur Point. Ceiling, fireplace and trims: Dulux Cardrona.
It’s a classic for a reason. Neutral workspaces can be relaxing, especially when you start to layer other natural tones in the space.
Cooler-based tones can feel slightly more clinical than comforting.
A warm neutral can also give the soft effect of natural sunlight, which is ideal for those who work late into the evening.
Green tones are soothing and can help us focus. It’s a colour that reflects nature and sparks those relaxed and content feelings we get when we’re in the great outdoors.
Green also lessens eye strain, making it ideal for people spending hours at the computer.
Create your very own urban oasis by opening a window, throwing in some plants, and painting the walls green.
Whether you’re a lawyer, a student, completing administrative tasks or anyone who requires extensive brain power to complete your daily duties, consider surrounding yourself with blue hues.
It’s a stable and calming hue that sparks creativity and helps you get the job done. Whether that’s hours of writing documents, designing campaigns, or keeping your household running.
