Colours in the office play a huge role in how we operate throughout the day. Whilst 50 shades of grey might invoke questionable literature out of the office, it’s known for quelling creativity, bland monotony and beige routine inside. Similarly, anyone would find it difficult to work amongst a brash splattering of multi-coloured walls that make your office look more like a child’s lucid daydream than a place wherein anybody could be expected to get anything done. That in mind then, finding the right colour and using it in a moderate, yet effective quantity is undoubtedly the key to making those decisions when it comes to office refurbishment.
