Colour is bold; it affects everything it touches. It ignites emotions, changes moods, and communicates value – all on a subconscious level. Research shows that colour also impacts employees’ productivity and satisfaction within the workplace. Interior designers and other space planning experts spend years learning to harness the power of colour and use it in an impactful way.
The research is compiled and the answers are uncovered – using the most popular Clarus™ glassboard colours, the list below explains the impact of colourful design.
This bright, sunshine yellow makes people feel warm and joyful. It is one of the most energising colours in the world. Adding a splash of yellow to someone’s desk or the breakroom creates alertness, enthusiasm, and allows them to solve problems quicker. With a burst of yellow to kick start and revamp your thought processes – think how much more one could accomplish.
Add some blue to your workspace and reduces stress. Blue helps people remain steady and productive, even during high stress times. Even having a rich blue in your peripheral vision can boost productivity and refresh your mind.
Choosing the right red can be difficult for the office. Bright reds can ignite anger quickly, raise blood pressure, and even increase metabolism – but taking the time to choose a calmer, less saturated red, designers can “stimulates the brain.” An intentional office design with a muted red sparks initiative – and everybody could use an extra boost of creativity and job satisfaction from time to time.
Orange is in red’s family, but unlike its cousin, orange add a friendly tone to the office — creating a more inviting, social environment. If red is a bit too powerful for the workspace, go with a muted orange that will quickly energise and ready the eyes for the hours of important work ahead.
Green is a cool colour that promotes harmony and peaceful feelings within the workplace. With collaboration and teamwork as the main focus of the modern office, accenting your office design in green brings a dose of unity. Cladding the office in a natural green reducing stress and anxiety, encouraging tranquility and even friendship among the team.
