Selecting Perfect Home Office Wallpaper Designs, Part 1

selecting home office wallpaper

Wallpaper is one of the elements of any given room or space that helps set its mood and ambiance, and one of several areas in the home where this theme can be important is in any kind of home office or study. Those performing important work, research or any other kind of project in their home office space generally want the right kind of mood set depending on the sort of work they’re doing and their personality, and wallpaper is a key feature to consider down these lines.

At Wallpaper Warehouse, we’re happy to offer a wide range of wallpaper colors, styles and designers for you to choose from for any room, including a home office you’re re-designing. In this two-part blog, we’ll go over several important factors or themes to consider here, starting with today’s part one on the various color schemes available to you and the kinds of aesthetics and mood they help promote.

White and Grey Hues

For those who are looking for an office space that stimulates them and gets the creative juices flowing, we’d generally recommend against leaning too heavily on white and grey shades. These colors are not known to have an impact on the senses, instead dulling a given area.

With an overuse of white or grey, in fact, research has found that negative emotions may be triggered. If neutrals are your thing, however, we recommend adding at least one or two splotches or accents of color in some area of the room to break up the bland pattern.

Green or Blue

Are you someone who works from home or knows you’ll spend 20-plus hours per week in your home office? In this case, green primary colors in your wallpaper might be a great choice – green is known to be energizing and easy for the eyes to deal with.

Blue, on the other hand, is great for the individual who needs a calming atmosphere in the office. Those who often struggle with distractions that limit productivity may find blue hues help them focus and improve their workload completion.

Reds, Purples and Dark Shades

If you know children will spend significant time in this room, such as if your kids do their homework in it every day, you might consider either red or purple, which research has shown are good for kids in indoor atmospheres. Girls tend to prefer purple, so go this route if you have only female children.

In addition, red is a color for those who work in high-energy areas and need to keep a laser focus. It’s not as good, on the other hand, for those who need calm and quiet in their office.

Yellow or Orange

Finally, while yellow and orange are not great choices if kids are going to spend significant time in the room, they are great for adult-only areas. They tend to connect with emotions like positivity and enthusiasm, helping creative impulses flourish for those who need some inspiration.
