The Benefits Of Colour In Your Office (Part one)

There are many reasons why having flowers in the workplace can be beneficial to the wellbeing and productivity of your employees. We’ve already discussed the benefits that having plant life can have, but what about the colours? Does the colour of your office plants really affect your staff? There is evidence to suggest that different hues have different effects on people, so you can use this colour psychology to your advantage to get the most out of your staff.

Red

Promotes: energy and urgency

It is best to use red as an accent in an office space, rather than an overpowering colour. Red can stimulate and excite employees, so used in the right way it can be great for their productivity. However, overdoing it with this colour can get staff worked up, so it’s important to get the balance right.

Yellow

Promotes: well-being and confidence

Another colour that needs to be used in moderation, a little yellow can be great for the confidence of staff. Don’t use too much yellow, though, as this colour can cause anxiety if it is over used.

Green

Promotes: relaxation and rejuvenation

Green is a great colour to have in an office environment as it is easy on the eyes and won’t cause eye strain, which can be an issue if staff spend most of their day staring at a computer screen. Use this colour if you have poor lighting.

Blue

Promotes: performance and creativity

Blue can inspire creativity and inspiration in staff, so this can be a great colour to use in an office. It also helps to reduce stress and anxiety, which will hopefully increase productivity and reduce sick days.
