Choosing the right color
A dash of paint can freshen up any room. Choose the type of paint and painting method according to your needs. If you need room for lists you might want to paint some of the wall with magnetic paint and hang up all of your memos. For a tamer, but still effective decorative wall, use chalk paint and write in chalk directly on the wall. When you’re decorating a workspace that is part of a larger area like a living room or bedroom, outline it with paint to separate it from the rest of the room.
Different shades can affect your mood and efficiency. Introducing blues and greens will create a soft, soothing atmosphere and works best for those of us in highly stressful lines of work. Yellow is known to aid memory and attention, and a white room gives off a clean vibe with minimal distractions. If your work requires creativity, try to make your workspace creative with a nice geometric pattern instead of a boring old bare wall.
For an all-over look, don’t forget to liven up your office furniture. Paint the shelves, desk and chairs using Polyor paint and get them to match the overall scheme and color scale of the room.
