If you are looking for soothing paint colors to spruce up your home office, learn how to choose the most relaxing colors here.

Choosing Colors for Your Home Office

What office paint colors will bring calmness? Which will help you relax and boost your productivity?

The color itself is not the only factor on its impact. Hue, as well as intensity, affect your mood. High intensity stimulates and low intensity soothes. Keep that in mind when choosing the exact color.

Relaxing Colors

Let’s face it, we live in a stressed-out world. Since color can be used as a stress management tool, let’s put your walls to work with these relaxing colors.

1. Blue

Nobody is surprised that blue tops the list. Blue conjures up visions of the ocean and we all know the peaceful calmness that can bring. The color blue can reduce your heart rate, lower anxiety and drop your blood pressure. Who knew?

The color white is fresh and clean. It calms you when you’re stressed and helps to clear your mind. Choosing the right white is important though because if you choose a dull, cloudy white, it can dull your thinking as well.
