Choosing colors in office design makes the office beautiful and suitable for feng shui. It also helps to create a working environment full of positive energy and stimulates the creativity of employees.
Color combination creates many effects in office space
Color greatly affects human psychology and perception in living, working and shopping spaces. Each color has different meanings and each different color can promote actions and regulate human behavior and emotions.
Therefore, in many fields, color is considered as a means to direct people to a certain behavior/perception. For example in product packaging/logo/flyer design and especially in architectural design. In office design and construction, the effective use of colors will create a harmonious and positive working environment. So how to use color effectively? The following 5 principles will help you clarify this issue.
Do not use more than three colors in one space
This does not mean absolutely that you can only use less than 3 colors in your office space. It is only intended to help you limit your choice of colors that define the space, such as wall paint, carpeting, or furniture.
Choose 3 colors that take on the roles: The main color, background color, accent color for your space. Make sure that people are only aware of and notice these three colors. More than 3 colors will make the space cluttered and messy, it also makes the space unsightly and distracting for office users.
Choose colors that promote concentration and maintain work performance
In the meeting room area or other concentrated spaces for research and related papers, books in colors such as light blue, red, yellow, green, orange are the best choice. These colors will help maintain focus and productivity in the long run. Coordinating these colors with white is the ideal way to create a focused workspace and stay productive.

Use colors that stimulate creativity in the office
Color can affect human psychology and perception. It also boosts their confidence and inspires them to be creative. The color theory states that yellow is the most creative color in the palette. You should choose yellow combined with white or neutral colors to create a space that inspires your employees.
Use colors to create a relaxing and comfortable mood
In office design, areas such as a pantry, cafe are the areas that need to create relaxation and comfort, helping your employees relieve stress and pressure from work. In these areas, pastel colors pink or light blue are the colors that create friendliness, openness and release negative emotions.
Use color to create spaciousness and ventilation
Color is the ideal tool to expand your space. So if you have a small office space, don't worry. Because you can choose colors with a smart color layout to help you expand the space or increase the depth of the workspace. In this case, bright colors, especially white will do a great job of expanding the space, creating a cleaner, brighter, and more balanced feeling for your workspace.

Use colors that represent power and luxury
In areas such as Spa or high-class customer service offices, luxury and power are always what businesses want customers to feel. At this point, glossy, flashy furniture is not the only way to show class. You can choose to combine several colors such as black-yellow, light purple, or dark blue-green-red to enhance the formality and sophistication of your office and services. This color principle is also suitable for use in the office spaces of managers and company leaders to properly represent the role of space users.
Color is not only aesthetic, it has a strong impact on human emotions and psychology. It can subtly regulate behavior and emotions. Office construction design from the past up to now has very well applied color theories to color schemes in office space. This is to create a positive working environment that is suitable for each space function as well as the business field of the enterprise.
