The importance of color in design

Selecting the right color or combination of hues for a corporate space is crucial for worker performance. The right color scheme can help decrease the stress felt in an environment and help create the right kind of office environment. While some people may believe the science behind picking colors is complicated, it truly is not and rests more on common sense and understanding that one color over another will incite a reaction. Colors work together to create an environment and are the foundation for a strong interior design. 

As a result, it is important to ensure that the materials being selected for a corporate office fit within the desired color spectrum. Often the designers and companies that offer fabricated materials for work spaces have already thought about the colors of the product they create and how those hues fit in with an office environment. 

The science of color
Surrounding an office with a softer color will produce a calming reaction and encourage workers to concentrate on tasks at hand. As a result, lighter colors are better for design studios, research and development space and other areas that do not require bursts of frantic energy. In contrast, spaces like gyms and common areas often will use bright blasts of accent colors because they are energizing. Because color can make or break a space, it's important for an interior designer to use the right combination of hues to both stimulate and relax workers.
