In a sea of neutral tones in the office, how can you liven your area up a little bit? Adding some color is the best way to make a dull office bright and inviting instead of boring. However, you don’t want to overwhelm a tiny office space with an influx of colors. Here’s how to make that workspace pop the perfect amount!
INTRODUCE COLORFUL ART
Blank walls just beg for some attention. If paint isn’t in the equation, consider adding a few statement art pieces. the pieces don’t even have to be big, but a few brightly colored prints can do wonders at livening up your workspace.
SPICE UP YOUR OFFICE SUPPLIES
The same pens, folders, clips, and other office supplies aren’t going to stand out if everyone else in your company is using them. Splurge a bit on some inspirationally colored chairs, fabric covered bulletin boards and office accents. Use colored pens to take your notes instead of the standard blue and black. These are all little things, but they can make a big difference in the way your workspace looks.
CHOOSE A FOCAL BRAND SUPPORTING COLOR
Different colors have different psychological impacts on people. Choosing a specific color that you’re going to accent your workspace with can help you with whatever emotions you want to emphasize at work. If you deal with difficult clients, calming shades might be best. If you find your day dragging, you could use a pick-me-up color.
UPGRADE YOUR LIGHTING
Office lighting can often be harsh and unforgiving. Fluorescent bulbs can really impact the way colors look. What you think looks good in a warmly lit place like your home can look completely different under cooler, brighter lighting.
DON’T OVERDO IT
One of the biggest mistakes is getting a bit too color happy. First, you’ll want to stick to a few colors that complement each other. You don’t just want to throw a bunch of random colors in the mix, or it’ll look mismatched and just give you a headache looking at them all day. You’ll want to balance out all the color with neutral tones as well.
