Are you setting up a new home office because you are officially working from home for good?  Does your existing home office need some improvement to boost productivity?

Many companies are implementing voluntary or mandatory work from home policies during these trying times. That means people are dealing with being at home full-time. You’ll be spending lots of time in your home office, so it needs to be an area that fits your needs and comfort level.

Some of you may already have office space set up, while others must quickly organize a place to work at home. To help make you successful or liven up the current office space you have, add a fresh coat of paint. One easy way to set the tone and decor for a home office is to paint it with the right colors. Paint colors can have a big impact on your mood and productivity.

Try Shades of these Colors to Spruce Up Your Office

home office paint colors

When thinking of home office design ideas, it’s important to not just consider the furniture, layout, and storage needs, but also your office paint colors. Your home office needs to be a comfortable spot to get your work done.

We recommend picking a paint color that you love and that relaxes and inspires you to improve your mood and productivity. There are paint shades you can choose to help improve your concentration and give you a more positive vibe while working.

1. Green 

Green is easy on the eyes which makes it the perfect choice for working long hours. It also is a color of balance, harmony, nature, and restoration. This soothing color is great for adding a natural, organic feel to your home office. Soft green is one of the best home office colors.

Green pairs well with natural wood and other earth tones. For desks and shelving, choose wood pieces. Pairing it with gold adds a fun glam contrast to an otherwise organic office space. Artwork and decor should have pops of green in them. Don’t forget natural green plants to finish the room.


2. Blue

Blue is the color of intelligence, trust, logic, communication, and efficiency. It’s a great color for an office space where consistent focus is needed. A light blue shade is very soothing and perfect for a home office. Cobalt or supersaturated blues can be straining to the eye, especially when looking at a computer screen. Blues pairs well with neutrals and whites, as well as wood tones.

3. Pink Hues

Hues of pink like a peach, soft blush, or rose petal bring positivity into a room. These

hues give off youthful and energetic vibes making it great for the home office if you do creative work. You can update your home office with a mix of coral and pink to create depth. Incorporate neutrals and bright white accents along with soft decorative pieces to complement the space.

4. Warm Neutrals

Warm neutrals have a naturally calming effect. Opting for neutrals with a light-yellow undertone helps promote feelings of joy, warmth, and energy, which are needed in any work environment. This color palette is great for quiet work where solitude is key.

A warm neutral color scheme is ideal for a minimal home office. Include neutral and warm materials like birch wood, teak, and honey-colored woods along with warm metals like brass and brushed bronze.

5. Browns

Brown is a color of simplicity, trustworthiness, warmth, and earthiness. It’s a great color palette for creating a cozy space to work. It makes your home office feel grounded and secure, so you can simply focus on getting work done. Use brown for rustic and traditional decor. Warm woods, leather, and earthy decor well with a brown color scheme.

Other colors to consider pairing with a brown paint color are whites, dark browns, or taupes. Natural green plants give a pop of color to this simple office space. Artwork with blues and greens also help liven up the room. Warm metals like brass complement a room with a brown color scheme.

I highly recommend this company. They did an amazing job on my upcoming listing. They were also referred to me by another Realtor.

Will (owner) was a pleasure to work with and he is extremely knowledgeable in his craft, he is honest and takes the time to explain the process and what to expect.

Their set up is fantastic, they really take their time masking everything out. The paint lines are perfect and they stained a ton of natural wood, all the cabinets in the house and refinished the tile countertops.

My listing looks so beautiful 😍 they really pay attention to detail and the whole crew was super sweet.

I’ve already booked them for another upcoming listing and will continue to use this company and refer it out to others.
