The Influence of Colour Schemes in the Workplace

The Influence of Colour Schemes in the Workplace

The selection of colours in the workplace has been linked with a range of behavioural outcomes from employees. The psychology of colour has been used to improve productivity, spark creativity, reduce boredom and increase focus. Low wavelength colours such as green and blue are favourable choices if you want happier, more effective workers. Green is restful for the eyes thus making it a good choice in offices where data entry and continuous monitor usage are of high demand. Calming blue will lower the heart rate making the workplace a less stressful environment.

 
 
 

High wavelength colours such as red evoke passion, a sense of urgency and intensity whilst mellow yellow provides optimistic outlooks and is often used in environments where designers, developers and creative professionals function effectively.
Orange is associated with enthusiastic employees and rapid decision making.

Neutral colours such as brown, white, cream, grey and black can help tone down or highlight the brighter colour depending how they are utilised. Brown walls can create a warm feeling but can also make a room seem dark.
Today the café culture environment has provided the designer with a wider scope to choose neutral and earthy colours such as greys, browns and blacks.

Allplastics has a wide selection of architectural plastics that architects and designers can select from to provide the workplace with the intended colour & mood effect.

Materials such as PRESPEX FROST with a double sided satin surface finish are available in 4 hues (Hot Frost, Vivid, Pastels and Urban) which can be intense or mild depending on the selection.

PERSPEX Frost Collection

Workstation dividers, office partitions and light diffusers are effective applications for FROST PERSPEX®.

Gloss Solid PERSPEX® colours will provide brightness and light reflection to add ambience to any dull environment.
PERSPEX® Naturals are solid neutral colours that can be used for cladding office furniture, directional signage or in combination with other colours to tone down or highlight a colour.

For brighter colour effects consider Allplastics’s coloured Acrylic mirrors, available in many colours such as grey, bronze, gold, purple, red, orange, green, blue… they are regularly used in the hospitality sector however; offices are also introducing the highly reflective surface in splashbacks and ceiling panels.

The latest edition bright colours are the Sweet Patels range of PERSPEX® featuring Orange Fizz, Bubblegum Blue, Sour Grape, Candy Floss Blue, Lemon Bonbon, Parma Violet, Spearmint Green and Raspberry Sherbet. They are great addition for environments where creativity and light hearted atmosphere is desired.
