Colour plays a large part in our daily decision-making processes, from choosing what to eat to picking an outfit to wear and even influencing our mood. Colour is, however, often overlooked as an important factor in the workplace. Colour should be considered as a tool that can bring positivity to your office and even increase performance.
How Does Colour Affect Performance?
Introducing colour into your workplace could even give your staff a boost and improve performance, but it is important to choose the right colours. One study, published in 2009 by The University of British Columbia investigated the effect of the colours blue and red on performance. When looking at these colours from a performance perspective the researchers found that red is predominately associated with dangers and mistakes whereas blue is associated with openness and peace. Making sure that the colours you use in your workplace create a positive environment for your staff could boost performance and morale. The use of colour is hugely important in schools and colleges as it can brighten up areas such as common rooms or classrooms and help students feel positive and inspired.
Coloured Ceiling Tiles
It may seem a little extreme to plaster the walls of your office in colour, so why not look to the ceiling to inject some creativity. Coloured ceiling tiles are a great way to brighten up a workspace and create a modern look. Traditionally the most popular colour of ceiling tile is white, this is because it has great light-reflecting properties. There are, however, other options out there and thinking outside of the box could create a more contemporary feel. Coloured ceiling tiles are also great for schools, colleges and universities as well as shops and cinemas. Our most popular and affordable range of coloured ceiling tiles would be the Armstrong Colortone Dune range. Rockfon also manufactures coloured ceiling tiles as part of their Colour-all range which offers 34 different colours!
