How to Achieve your Dream Space with Wall Colors
If you find yourself struggling to stay focused in your workspace, it may be time for a bit of a makeover. Not many people realize that colors hold the ability to affect us in various ways such as physically, intellectually and can even affect us emotionally. Giving us the sensation of being angry, confident, or maybe even excited. Here at Polson Painting, we’re dedicated to helping you achieve your dream space in any way we can. Below we’ve compiled a list of specific colors and the effects they may have on us. Let’s learn how to incorporate different colors and complementary combinations that are thought to inspire and promote motivation. Color Psychologist Angela Wright believes that the four primary colors which have the strongest psychological influence are red, blue, yellow as well as green. It is believed that each color has a different effect on our mind, body, and soul. Now it’s not believed these are the only four colors that have psychological effects but are considered to be the base to every other variation of color and the associated effect it brings.
Red Wall Paint
The color red is thought to be one of the most physical colors on the wheel. Red is known to promote stimulation throughout the body that gets your heart going as well as increases your pulse. It is believed to be such a powerful color that it even has the ability to provoke physical responses within the body, even triggering a “fight or flight” instinct. Red is a great option if you don’t consider yourself to be someone who’s easily defeated when presented with high-stress scenarios. Otherwise, a bold color choice such as red may cause you to feel a bit overwhelmed which could actually hinder your attempt to be productive. Implement the color red to promote productivity in a physically-demanding job.
Blue Wall Paint
Blue is considered to be the most intellectual color on the wheel. Known for its soothing properties, when visualizing the color blue, it helps calm the mind and promotes better concentration. Blue is one of the most commonly used colors for office spaces. It does a wonderful job at enhancing alertness and also promotes better communication. Choosing blue is the best option if you’re looking to get straight to the point of productivity.
Yellow Wall Paint
Psychologists consider yellow to be one of the most emotional colors on the wheel. With its bright hues, yellow is the perfect color to promote higher energy levels while simultaneously radiating positive energy into your space. Yellow is known to have strong effects on our mood and even helps boost confidence levels. Feeling confident is the first step in rocking your workday. Being the strongest emotional color, yellow is the perfect option for someone looking to boost energy and creativity levels.
Green Wall Paint
Often representing balance, green is known to be harmonizing and, far from red, green is easy on the eyes. It brings a soothing balance between the other primary colors as well as creates a sense of soothing. Green is a great option if you find yourself frequently feeling overwhelmed by workloads.
