The Impact of Colour in Commercial Spaces
Colour is a fundamental aspect of interior design, capable of shaping our perceptions of the spaces we occupy. It can subtly affect our emotions and even create the illusion of a room being larger or smaller.
This can be a particularly important consideration when creating commercial washroom spaces that sit seamlessly within the rest of the building.
Colour Psychology states that “When it comes to communication, colour is unbeatable. Unconscious or otherwise, colour can evoke emotions, inspire reactions, and change modes of thinking.”
It’s clear that colour can be a powerful tool for curating the mood of your washroom and representing the values of your brand.
Yet, integrating colour into your design can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming. There are numerous factors to consider, such as the room's intended use, its functional needs, and the desired atmosphere you want to create for its occupants.
How Can You Use Colour or In Your Washroom Design?
Although a washroom primarily serves a functional purpose, choosing the right aesthetics can elevate it to become an integral representation of your brand identity.
Our design experts can guide you in incorporating this warm and uplifting hue through various elements such as duct panelling, tiling, paint selections, accessories, and more.
For instance, duct panelling, like that featured here in our Rushworth Street project, provides an excellent opportunity to infuse the space with colour, adding warmth and personality to the environment.
