As times change and things start taking a different direction post-pandemic, working from home will quickly become a new norm.
It’s becoming safer, and more efficient to work from, and the best you can do it make your home office a conducive environment.
Choosing the right paint colors for your home office can both maximize productivity and boost your creativity.
From greens that improve efficiency to energetic touches of red and yellow, the right colors fuel the ideas and creativity of home offices.
Paint products, like Notable from Benjamin Moore, allow painted wall surfaces to become dry-erase boards.
You can use transparent paint on any wall paint color or opt for the classic “whiteboard.”
Generally, your ideas, your tasks to do, and your appointments directly decorate the walls of your home office with a high-end gloss finish that fades wonderfully.
Are your surfaces made of wood, glass, metal, or laminate? Apply Notable MD Dry Wipe Paint or any other similar formulation to these surfaces for maximum flexibility of use.
Given the distractions that can exist at home, it is essential to be able to stay focused in your home office.
Our favorite colors for this purpose include neutrals, blues, and greens. Some research suggests that green is a useful wall color for increasing focus.
The pale colors are not only soothing, but they also create superb backgrounds for bulletin boards, images, and shelving without “detonating” too much in a space where concentration is essential.
You can never go wrong with white for a studio or home office, but feel free to try out other bolder options.
Accent walls and paneling can provide colorful, creative punctuation for your office, library, or closet. The more vivid and energizing colors we love for an office include Fruity Yellow and California Teal.
Whether your color choice is hot or cold, light plays a major role in transforming colors in any room.
Use a balance between work and ambient lighting with attractive light temperatures to make the office both functional and comfortable.
Besides, office hours can be rather long, tiring, and boring at times, so adding some fun and interest in your working space can spice things up.
Remember to take into account the effect of the finish on the design. Because it reduces glare, a matte finish will produce a soft appearance perfect for an office.
Using a too glossy paint finish, for instance, can create distracting and uncomfortable glare.
Chairs, desks, cupboards, bookcases, or any other office furniture offer the opportunity to use stronger finishes and shades to stand out on classic matt or velvety walls.
If you want luster and contrast for your office furniture, consider a semi-gloss finish, which provides a very shiny finish for the furniture.
The best thing about home offices is you have the flexibility of personalizing your home office space.
So don’t hold yourself back if you need to get a little off the script with the color choices.
Painting is the easiest and cheapest way to transform your home office space almost instantly.
