Home Workspaces Paint Colours

Inspiration & Tips

Nowadays our homes are certainly the workhorses of our lives – treat your at-home workspaces to the renewing colours they deserve.

Setting Up for Success

Picking the right paint colour for your home office, remote learning or homework area, studio or crafting space is just as important as fitting it out with the right furniture, lighting, storage and technology. Wall paint colours help boost productivity, creativity and focus to get the work done.

Choosing Paint Colours for Home Workspaces

Green creates a serene, soothing atmosphere, which can relieve stress. It is also traditionally associated with money and ambition, making it a good paint colour for a home office.

Red may not be the best paint colour for a work-from-home space as it raises heart and respiratory rates. Blue, on the other hand, is calming, lowering the pulse rate while increasing productivity – a perfect paint colour for a home office or kids’ homework area.
