Aside from mixing and applying paints, painters must also know what colours to choose in their projects. Psychologists have studied that colours can subconsciously influence the moods and behaviours of people.
Some hues can boost your mental energy whilst others can help you relax. As painters, you should have a knowledge on the right hues for houses and offices. Here are some colours and how they can affect you:
- Black and White
Painters can use a combination of these colours to create an aura of class and sophistication. Hence, this is often used in fashion and design industries to convey elegance.
For a stressful work environment, seeing blue offices and rooms can not only calm you and put you at ease, they can also keep you cool-headed. Blue rooms are known to boost productivity. It is also a hue that denotes stability and reliability, hence most companies use them in their logos and other corporate branding materials. But don’t let a depressed person stay in a blue room as it creates feelings of sadness, hence the expression ‘feeling blue’.
For industries that require employees to be conscious of tiny details, you may want to paint your officer. Studies show that red can make people be more particular about details. So, if you are operating a proofreading or bookkeeping company, you may want to coat your office in red. This hue is also perfect for getting somebody’s attention such as in packaging and signs.
Yellow and orange are hues that create a feeling of excitement and energy. Painters can use these colours in rooms or places where you need to stimulate mental activity such as creative offices. It can also create an atmosphere of fun and enthusiasm. Just don’t use this hue in rooms of people suffering from anxieties as they can be overstimulated by this colour.
Signature Painters can suggest using any of the colours to improve the design and usefulness of the office or room they are working on. Call them at 07 3396 9766.
