Let me guess, as a business owner, brightening up your office space is the last thing on your mind. Understandably, we all think that when it comes to office spaces, formal means dull. It is a culture that has been passed down from generation to generation. What if I told you that enhancing your office space with bright decor could boost productivity and profitability? That might sound unbelievable, but recent studies show that bright office furnishings improve mood, productivity, and creativity. Let's dive in.
Different designs could make your employees more energetic, relaxed or creative. We ourselves use some of our furniture we have for sale on HomesDirect365 to brighten up the office. Picture this; hospitals always feature green or blue decoration. The secret behind this is that green and blue colours outs people at ease. If your nature of work is high paced as in the case of a newsroom or share trading, having snippets of bright green or blue can alleviate stress and make your employees feel relaxed. You can either install office furniture with green upholstery or repaint the walls or ceiling. Research has been done on this topic and it has been labelled the Dewey Colour System.
Have you ever visited an advertisement company? Employees in such a workplace need to have their creative juices continually flowing. If you visit a couple of offices in this niche, you will notice the generous use of red décor. They always have red on their upholstery, walls or flooring. According to psychologists, the red colour spikes up energy and inventiveness. You can copy from that and do the same for your office. But just remember that this colour has to sit in well with the rest of your office design.

Do your employees display signs of emotional exhaustion? You will notice symptoms such as forgetfulness, slackness and bad mood. Try using yellow in your office decor. Yellow color brightens up your office space and makes it look beautiful. Buts that's not all, yellow keeps people alert and attentive. Consider using yellow office furniture, including office chairs, desks, and filing cabinets.
For a small office, many employees might feel too clustered. But there is a way around this; use bright colours. Bright colours make a little room space look bigger than it is. This might improve the productivity of your employees in the long run. Use light colours for the walls and furniture, and then you can tone it down with shades of black or grey. For instance, if you go with red for office furniture, choose grey for the carpet flooring.

Nathan from Austin Tenant Advisors said that:
"For starters, your office space will be able to fetch a higher price in the market. Potential office leasers look to have a comfortable place to work in.
