Quantock Interiors Blog The importance of colour in office design When it comes to office design, the importance of colour should never be underestimated. Here are just some of the reasons why colour is important when designing your office: Productivity Workers who spend most of their day in the office should feel comfortable and relaxed. This will ensure they are working to their full potential - it’s incredible just how much colour can affect mood. Dull colours such as grey can evoke feelings of depression, whereas overpowering colours such as luminous yellow can lead to feelings of claustrophobia. Using an overall colour pallet that is balanced and doesn’t overwhelm is the best way to ensure the office vibe is maintained, without becoming too totalitarian. Remember: a happy workforce is a productive one! Image Office design should also take into account the impression given to visitors. If your company is highly creative, the office should give that impression via the expert use of colours in its design. Alternatively, a business that prides itself on privacy may wish to use a more muted colour scheme to convey these deep-rooted ideals. A meeting room is a particular office area that deserves special attention. Meetings can often go on for several hours and it’s important that the surrounding colours aid discussion, rather than distract from it. The big picture Sometimes, it pays off to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Not only does an office need to meet the needs of its staff and visitors, it should also be a central hub that encapsulates the heart of the business. You’ll have areas dedicated to thinking, productivity, meetings and downtime, and you’ll want the colours to match. If you want to find out more about the important of colour in office design, Quantock Interiors Ltd has a wealth of experience and expertise that can help you make the right decisions for your business.
