What Colors Should We Paint Our Business Offices?
Believe it or not, the colors you choose to paint your business office can have a dramatic impact on your clients, and visitors as well. The effects are both instinctive and subliminal, and they can either create a good or bad impression of your business. The colors in your office should go hand in hand with the type of business you conduct. The moment your office door is opened, judgment is made and your image is projected. Choosing the right office colors can ensure that a good perception of your business is given.
General office space
Natural colors such as beiges and creams, combined with wood grain finishes help create a sophisticated and refined look, and are more popular with corporate and more serious types of businesses such as financial advisors, lawyers, accountants and lawyers. These colors can however come off as dull and staid as well as safe and boring.
Blue on the other hand is a great choice for the above types of businesses as it denotes confidence, security, conservatism, wisdom, loyalty and honesty. Being a calming color, green suggests growth and money while dark green is often an indication of prestige and wealth, hence its popularity among corporate businesses. The effect of these colors can be balanced by accessorizing with a little of complementary color such as red with green or orange with blue.
Burgundy, dark green and navy blue often serve to give clients of corporate a message of confidence, control and responsibility. It should however be noted that not every business will benefit by using colors that are good for corporate business. To ensure you choose the right office color, you will need to factor several things including the type of business you’re promoting, the gender of your clients, the cultural background as well as their age.
