When you decide to paint a creative workspace such as a private studio or a creative office space, you’ll be faced with the question of how to inspire creativity without creating a distraction or limiting imagination. Here are 3 tips for painting a creative workspace:
Choose neutral colors that aren’t visually intrusive.
If you’re painting a creative space in which visually based projects such as paintings are being produced, then you’ll likely wish to choose a light, neutral wall color. This will help ensure that the artists in the room are able to accurately perceive the colors that they’re working with. On the other hand, if your workspace is creative in a more abstract sense, then feel free to choose colors that are vivid and engaging.
To reduce distraction, choose solid colors over patterns.
Although it’s tempting to be creative when painting a creative space, keep in mind that visually distracting elements such as patterns can make it hard to focus on the project at hand. If you want to be creative without making your paint choices overly intrusive, consider using solid accent colors instead of patterns.
Consider the functionality of the walls themselves.
How will the walls in your creative workspace be used? Typically, the walls in creative spaces are subjected to high amounts of tape, poster putty, stains, and other types of wear and tear. If the walls themselves are going to be a functional part of the creative space, consider choosing a durable paint that resists stains and chipping.
