How Colour and Décor Increase Productivity in Classrooms

18th October 2017

Studies have shown that well designed and colourful classrooms have a positive impact on the productivity of children and their classwork. A brightly coloured classroom provides an exciting and fun environment for both staff and students as opposed to dull, plain, and boring colours. Scientists have proven that looking at bright, warm colours such as pink and red releases dopamine (known as the ‘feel good hormone’) – which can improve your mood and increase your attention span. A classroom with colours such as red and yellow will have higher levels of brain activity, as opposed to a grey or beige classroom.

Colour inspires creativity and encourages students’ initiative, leading to new ideas and greater productivity. It also stimulates creative thinking towards writing, artistic studies and in problem solving.

However, the benefits of colour within a classroom are not exclusive to students. Staff have also been known to enjoy colourful classrooms and find it creates an exciting yet relaxed environment assisting them in teaching their pupils. The stimulation of the brain is a key aspect to engaging students and attracting their full attention in order for them to perform to the best of their abilities.
