When designing a home office, productivity should be the first thing that comes to mind. After all, if you have the privilege of working in the confines of your own home, it better be a place where you can get work done.
However, this is easier said than done. Many things can come into play to distract you from being productive. This is totally understandable as you’re combining the comfort of your home with the busy atmosphere of your home office. Regardless, there is a way to be productive and comfortable at the same time, and that is by adding certain colors to your home office décor.
On top of having all of your necessary supplies readily accessible with properly placed cabinets, drawers, and shelves, colors have a subtle effect on the way you go about your business.
You can think of red as a color that is synonymous with energy. Incorporating red into your office can result in the following:
Increased attention to detail
An office with a large amount of red has been proven to keep your focus up on detail-oriented tasks and memorization.
Red has the power to make you feel like you can take over the world.
If you feel like you’re getting what you want when talking with a client, you can attribute it to the red in the office.
Blue is the color of peace and tranquility. Blue can do this for your office:
Blue has the uncanny ability to take some pressure off of you in tense situations.
Improved performance for creative tasks
Sometimes, a bit of blue can spark an idea or two.
Sometimes you need to clear your mind and relax, and blue can help you feel as if you’re flying in clear blue skies or the sea in the Maldives.
Finally, we have green, which is the color for happiness and life. These are some of the amazing things it can do:
When your creative juices need a boost, green gives them a full-on jolt.
Sometimes you can’t get work done due to something getting you down. Green can help remind you that everything is okay.
You work better when happy and with a can-do attitude.
The next time you feel as if you’re not getting anything done in your home office, try incorporating the aforementioned colors in your décor whether through displays for shelving, paint, or furniture. You won’t regret it.
