How to Choose the Right Paint Color for Your Home Office

More and more people have started working remotely from home. If you’re lucky, you have an extra room you can use as a home office. When you’re working from home its ideal to have a space that looks and feels like an office so you can be as productive as possible. Some color schemes work better than others, although there is always an element of subjectivity when it comes to choosing the right paint color for a room. In this article, we’re going to explore the different paint colors that work best for a home office.

Black and Blue Paint for a Home Office

When you first hear the words “black and blue” you might not think inspiration and energy. However, black and blue can be a rich color palette that when used correctly can work nicely in a home office. One tip is painting your walls alternate colors – opposite colors being black and blue. You can also experiment with painting your ceiling either black or blue and the walls the opposite color.

Yellow and Black Paint for Your Home Office

When you see the colors yellow and black together you might think of a bee. The contrasting colors of yellow and black can be a good look for your home office. Use the yellows to contrast with the blacks and keep your home office bright at the same time. Black and yellow lead to certain design themes like diamonds, arrow, and lines that can highlight other important objects in your office.

Red and White Paint

If you like a little pep in your office using reds and white can do just that. Try using red and white on your walls in an alternating pattern. If you want to keep the red more subtle, use white for your walls, then use red more sparingly on the trim or even the ceiling. Red is a very emotionally intense color and is associated with energy, strength, and power – not a bad idea for your office space.

Green and Blue Paint for your Home Office

Green and Blue paint can be one of the nicest combinations for a home office, especially if you are a lover of nature. Both colors are calming colors, so if your job is a high-stress job, being surrounding by calming blues and greens may be the perfect fit to get you through each day.

White and Gray

So far we’ve looked at some more bold color combinations, but white and gray can be just as powerful. You can alternate having white on one wall and gray on another, and compliment them with furniture. White and gray is always a safe bet, and if you have a lot of wall decorations going with white and gray backgrounds is often the best choice.
