It’s becoming more and more common for people to set aside a room in their home as a “home office.” With many people putting in extra hours after work to get their tasks done, many companies offering work from home days, and a lot of people starting their own side hustles or even full-time businesses to become their own boss. Although you can work from any room in your home as long as you have a laptop or desktop computer, designating a room to be your official office can actually help to increase productivity. The way you decorate, set-up, and the color you paint it can even increase productivity by lowering stress levels, keeping you focused, and channeling positivity. Check out how some of these paint colors can do just that.
When choosing a color for your office, you’ll want to pick one that is going to keep you awake and focused. Red is known to be vibrant and exciting. Shades of red and orange have been found to increase oxygen supply to the brain and stimulate brain activity for optimal productivity. Green has also been shown to be energizing, and improve your concentration. If you’re going to be working in your office for long periods of time, blue is also a good choice, as it is widely known as a productive color that will keep you feeling energized and focused all day long.
Many people today are overwhelmed with heavy workloads and stressful situations that arise from work. Designing your office to be calming and soothing can help to de-stress. Gray is a cool, neutral color that can help you to feel peaceful, and also give your eyes a break from your bright screen. Blue is also a good choice, as its ties to nature give off a serene, calming effect that promotes relaxation.
Although working from home may seem like a dream come true, since you never have to change out of your sweats and have much more freedom, you’ll also realize that it can be very isolating. That’s why painting your office a bright and cheery color to channel positive vibes is key. A bright yellow or light blush can help to provoke joy.
