If you’re running a business office, you’ve probably considered all types of ways to increase the mood and productivity of your employees. Whether it’s using incentives, creating the right environment or changing the culture and the way work is done, we all know that when employees are happier, the work gets better.
Use Color Psychology
But one thing you might not have considered? The color of your walls. We often think in terms of minimizing distractions, which leads us to go with plain white or grey colors around the office, but according to certain studies this might not be the right way to go. While these bland colors won’t cause a distraction, they can actually lead to a worse mood which inhibits productivity.
Instead, experts are suggesting using cooler tones like greens and blues. These colors are a great choice because they can be both soothing and energizing at the same time. You also have plenty of options if you want to go with a color that is more muted, or more vibrant. You know your staff and the culture better than anyone, so use what you know to create the best environment possible.
How to Paint Your Office
There’s also the consideration of how to actually get the job of painting the office done. The good thing about a traditional office is that they are mostly empty on the weekends, which gives you an easy window to get the whole office painted. This is usually enough time for small to mid sized offices, but if you do have multiple floors you might need an extra large crew.
Unlike a residential space which some choose to do themselves, it’s a little tougher convincing employees or even business owners to paint their own offices. For cases like this, it’s best to call in a team of experienced painters who you know can get the job done within the weekend time frame, and who will make sure that everything looks clean and professional once they leave.
Covering or even moving furniture is definitely an important consideration during a job like this, when you don’t want to risk expensive office furniture and equipment getting ruined by wet paint.
