Color and Productivity PureAlchemy Design 1

If your office walls are painted dull gray — the cold color of warships, concrete and cubicles — it’s time for a makeover!

A recent University of Texas study found that bland gray, beige and white offices induced feelings of sadness and depression. Similar scientific studies have shown that colors don’t just change our moods, they also profoundly impact our productivity, for better and for worse. That’s why it’s best to enliven your workplace with a vibrant medley of stimulating hues that increase output and spark creativity.

For a vivid exploration of how some happy hues impact office productivity, check out “How the Color of Your Office Impacts Productivity”. From the factory floor to the cubicle, to the meeting room and beyond, here’s how you can harness the power of color to boost employee output and creativity.


REDIn a physically-demanding job: Workers that require a lot of physical exertion such as tradespeople, personal trainers, and tree surgeons, may respond well to red.

BLUE – An office worker: Blue is brilliant for completing administrative tasks or projects that require maximum focus. Add a splash of orange if you need extra inspiration.

YELLOW – An innovator or entrepreneur: If you’re stuck in an ideas rut, yellow can help get the creative juices flowing and make you more optimistic about the direction you’re taking.

GREEN – At your best in a calm working environment: If you like to start your day with yoga or a meditative practice, green is most likely the color for you. See more at “4 Colors That Give You an Unexpected Productivity Boost”.
