Psychology working with your office furniture helps you to create a happier and more productive office environment. These simple design tips show you how to transform your office:
Provide friendlier lighting. Start your office change with the lighting. Dim lights can cause depression. Lights that are too bright can cause eye strain, fatigue, and headaches. Dimmers and spot lighting can help to make the office a happier place. Table lamps like you have at home provide comfortable lighting because we are used to it. This encourages a friendly atmosphere and increases productivity. In summer, use iridescent blue light bulbs to cool the area. Amber bulbs in the winter tend to warm a colder spot.
Paint the walls with silver blues, tans, and grays; this enhances creativity. Gray does not leave an after image on the brain so it is great for deep thinking. Warm tans bring to mind the beach or the desert which is good for sustaining concentration. Silver blues and candy pink inspire fantasy, which is great for writers.
Blues, blacks, and muted greens improve overall efficiency.
Over scaled office furniture, large landscape paintings and home style lighting combined with tropical foliage relaxes you and your guests. Bookcases with lots of books tell your guests that you are organized and knowledgeable.
These few changes in your office furniture and décor will adjust the way your office flows. It will be a happier, more productive space.
