Color has a psychological impact on people. Color evokes emotion and affects mood in significant ways.

Add Live Plants to the Office

Add greenery to the office.  Live plants are a simple, affordable way to enhance your office. Plants create a tranquil environment. Succulent plants retain water well and are low-maintenance. This advantage is ideal, especially for busy office areas. Succulent plants also adjust well to dim lighting. Fluorescent lights are often distracting and burn a lot of energy.

Add Accent Furniture

Accent furniture has been popular for a long time. Homeowners and business owners alike incorporate accent furniture into their interior design to uplift a room and make the environment fun and positive. Brightly colored lounge chairs can break up a neutral color palette.

Accent Walls

If you don’t want to paint the office one solid color, accent walls are a way to add color without overdoing it. Help showcase your brand and company by painting one wall of the office space a hue or shade found in your company logo.

Office and Desk Accessories

Office and desk accessories not only help to organize an office and give it solidarity, but they can be aesthetically dynamic as well. Colorful file cabinets or bins are out on the market as well as brightly colored trays that can help sort your documents. Once again, if you want to show that you take pride in your brand, go for company colors.

Utilize Task Lighting

LED lights are a favorite when it comes to interior design. LED lights are low in energy and don’t emit a lot of heat, which is ideal for the warmer seasons. Task lights can be colorful as well. You don’t have to go for the traditional white or black desk lamp. Do you have a home office? For those late nights, a LED desk lamp in a colorful can keep you motivated and inspired.
