Cultivating a positive environment for your employees is of the utmost importance. Fortunately, there are lots of ways to engage them, and creating a dynamic workplace is one we believe in strongly. Deciding to color for creativity and productivity can be beneficial and result in happier employees. Check out this infographic on some upsides of repainting your office or choosing a new color palette, and continue to learn more about how Padlo’s Perfect Painting can turn your drab office into an appealing hub of collaboration.
1. Improves Office Appearance
Is the paint in your office fading away? Are there marks, stains, or dings pocking the walls? Not only can these conditions lead to an overall dull work environment, but it can also hurt employee morale. Instead of letting the old paint chip away into a corporate abyss, think of it as an opportunity to revamp and revitalize. Maybe the interior can use a facelift in the way of branding yourselves — take the colors of your logo, website, and your marketing materials and put them on the wall!
While that may be a fun idea that works for several organizations, we understand that not every company’s color scheme makes an excellent wall color. So even if you go with a basic white wall, a fresh coat of paint can brighten up your office and make it look newly constructed.
2. Boosts Productivity
Many psychologists believe that colors can influence emotions and behaviors. Studies suggest that specific colors, like blue, can have a calming effect. You can give your office a fun touch of color with an accent wall. Maybe you designate a particular color wall to be home to an idea board or employee lounging area. The power of color (and thus, the power of paint) can help break up the areas in the office as well as utilize the cognitive and positive associations with colors.
3. Get the Employees Involved
An effective way to foster a sense of purpose and community (outside of job-related duties) is to get employees’ opinions about what the new color should be. Whether you take a poll or set up a suggestion box, this process can help you decide what colors your office should incorporate.
