The Psychology of Colour in Your Workspace

When considering updating or a complete redesign of your office workspace colour has a significant impact. Men prefer bold colours while women prefer softer colours usually opting for their own favourite colours when choosing a colour scheme.

BLUE is the colour of the mind and is essentially soothing; it affects us mentally, rather than the physical reaction we have to Red. Strong blues will stimulate clear thought and lighter, soft blues will calm the mind and aid concentration, these are very good for office spaces.

Colour may also influence a persons mental or physical state. Warm colours – such as Red, Yellow and Orange – can spark a variety of emotions ranging from comfort and warmth to hostility and anger. Cool colours – such as Green, Blue and Purple – often spark feelings of calmness as well as sadness.
