Additionally, the wellbeing and happiness of your employees can affect their productivity, as such; it isn't too farfetched to suggest that the colour of your workplace could have an impact on the productivity of those working in the office environment.

Using Colour Correctly.

With the average person spending a considerable portion of their time indoors, it is very important that numerous aspects of the office interior design are considered. Whilst office furniture and office layout are indeed very important with regards to employee productivity and wellbeing, other factors such as workplace colour schemes should also be considered.

According to research regarding the psychology of colour. Colours can be responsible for both physical and psychological effects on people. This can trigger a range of moods and emotions. As such, if used correctly, colour can be a powerful office design tool to boost productivity, wellbeing, and create a workplace that inspires your employees.

What Colour To Choose?

For example, sales and marketing could be marked with red, with red office furniture and accessories; representing the high energy working environment often associated with sales rooms.
