The Best Paint Colors for Your Home Office

If you work from home, you need to have a space that you can retreat to and get some work done. Devote time to creating an environment that makes you feel the most productive. One of the best places to start is the walls because it’s the backdrop for your space. The color you select as your wall paint can either enhance or hurt your productivity.

Yellow, for example, can provide a stimulating atmosphere. But too much of the paint color can be over stimulating and create anxiety. Studies have shown that people lose their temper more in yellow rooms. So when you are choosing paint colors for your home office, the right color could play a role in the success of your business. Here are a few paint colors that are well suited to an office environment.


White is never a good wall paint color for a home office. Too much white on the walls can make an area feel sterile and uninspiring. Many people associate white with hospital buildings. However, there are many benefits to having a neutral color on the wall. Heavily saturated colors, like a rich red, can be too overwhelming while you are working. If the hue is bold and bright it can make it harder for you to concentrate and create more eyestrain. Beige is a great alternative to white. It’s a softer color that can create a relaxing atmosphere to work in.


This color is another wonderful option for a neutral color. Taupe comes in a variety of shades, so when you’re choosing paint colors, you’ll have a wide selection to choose from. It’s one of the richer and warmer neutral colors available. The color is tempered enough that it won’t be too distracting or present eyestrain. The color also has enough depth that it will add vibrancy and energy into the room.


Blue is known for its calming abilities, which can come in handy when you are trying to tackle a tricky work problem. It’s also believed that the color promotes efficiency—a crucial trait when you work from home. Although, too much blue can make an area feel unbalanced and cold. A great idea is to use accent colors in the decorating that are more lively, like orange, in order to supplement the blue and make the space feel more stimulating.


Another bold color that isn’t too overwhelming is green. It’s also known to provide a calming atmosphere and invoke feelings of balance and reassurance. Humans see the color green more than any other color, so it’s very comforting. Use bright green as an accent color to add punches of color throughout the space.
