Spring is finally here, and with it comes warmth, vibrant colours, and an overall sense of joy as people young and old shed their winter coats to celebrate the returning sun. It’s a sensation many wish they could trap and bottle.
Well, with some clever design ideas and intelligent use of accent colours, you can help to preserve that vibrant sensation through your office furniture installation services.
‘Accents’ can be anything from chair fabrics to desktop organizers.
Base colours: Monochrome (greys, whites, and blacks)
Nothing represents sunshine and optimism quite like a vibrant yellow. Just seeing the colour can help to brighten your mood and promote a sense of optimism. A splash of yellow can be particularly effective when juxtaposed against a greyscale base, adding a cheerful pop to otherwise cold and formal blacks and greys.
If you’re planning to use this sunny motif, make sure that your furniture is dark and lacquered; any light wood grain or neutral brown colours will mute the pops of yellow, making your popping yellows look more like a beige stew.
Base colours: Browns, wood grains
It is with good reason that greens and natural wood tones are actually a very common colour in trendy workplaces. Green is the colour of budding flowers, which represent beauty and growth. Green and brown are the colours of trees, which represent stability. Greens has been used to represent the environmental movement, which represents responsibility and forward-thinking. And, of course, green is depicted as the colour of money, which is evocative of success.
An earthy green and brown colour scheme, complemented with office flora, also inspires a sense of comfort and calm. Using office furniture with shelves can give you ledges for potted plants to bring a lush organic feel to the office.
Base colours: Shades of brown, mocha, and wood grains
Accents: Peach or turquoise
Not every office can get away with sharp contrasts and a loud colour palate. For those who want to bring the feel of spring to their office while keeping things subtle and understated, a few pops of light pastel colours brings a sprig of life to muted browns and natural wood finishes, which is a common stock option for most office furniture.
The result is evocative of early spring, and the excitement when the first colours begin to bloom after a long winter, bringing a sense of growth and renewal to the atmosphere. Since the colours in this scheme aren’t as pronounced as in others, you can have much larger swaths of colour without it becoming overwhelming. Upholstered office chairs, waiting room couches, and fabric-covered cork boards provide large pools of cheerful colour rather than a simple splash.
These are just a few spring-themed color schemes that can be used to bring an extra little bit of renewal to your workplace. Whether you’re planning a new office installation, a renovation, or just want to add a little colour to your existing workplace, these suggestions can help you improve esthetics, boost morale, and impress visitors by bringing a little extra spring cheeriness to your offices.
