For better or for worse, home offices are getting more action than ever before. So why not liven yours up with a fresh COAT of paint? An easy and pocket-friendly way to transform your spare room into the workspace of dreams (if that exists).
Here are some of the best home office paint colours to inspire...
Go Bold and Dramatic
Use bolder paint shades on your walls and furniture, or even with accessories, to create a vibrant home office environment. Colour psychology tells us that brighter colours tend to be invigorating and stimulating, which let's face it, if we're working from home we really want that
Deep Greens and Blues work particularly well for the home office. Linked to concentration and focus, they can make for a subdued environment that's pretty classy too. Get the best of bold Blues and Greens with the aptly named Ditch The Tie or deep dark blue 2AM.
Add Some Brightness
When spending a good chunk off your day somewhere, you want it to feel as welcoming as possible. A warming orange, brown or red shade with real depth could be a great way to add some positive warm energy to your space - especially important in a home office.
Try a terracotta shade like Sima, and add a few house plants to transform your home office into the perfect Terra Tropicana Oasis. House plants are great for purifying the air in there too, which will help with concentration.

Keep Things Neutral
While there's nothing wrong with a splash of colour, sometimes you just want to keep things plain and fresh. Choose an off-white or warm neutral shade which will avoid your office feeling too clinical, whilst leaving room for art and decorations too. Pampas is the perfect warm off-white and neutral study colour.
Keeping your walls light and warm can leave room for some poppy artwork too. Adding visual interest with artwork can help to stimulate the brain without the room feeling overpowering. Warm paint colours like Sunday Soul are the perfect neutral backdrop for office artwork.
