Your workshop is most likely a place that you spend considerable time in. Why return from your weekend to a cluttered and dull workspace? We’ve put together three helpful tips for refreshing your workshop. You’ll need to hire a painting specialist and consider purchasing some new furniture. Your workshop should be a place that promotes productivity. Not a place that impedes your ability to work well. You may need to install new equipment or change the paint on the walls. Commercial and industrial painting projects may take some time, but they are worth it. An experienced painter can assist with a variety of painting tasks. They are key in making big changes to a workshop.
Improve the lighting
Considering light regulates your level of melatonin and serotonin in your brain, it can affect your mood and alertness. Your workshop should have as much natural lighting as possible. If there’s not enough opportunity for natural light, ensure your wall paint enhances the brightness of the room. An expert painting specialist is a good person to consult. The painter can offer tips and suggestions for improving the lighting in your workshop. Commercial and industrial painting projects enable us to consider how lighting affects productivity. Curtains, blinds and shutters are fantastic for keeping the strong sunlight out. Do allow for natural light to enter the room whenever possible. Your lights should be energy-saving, bright and in good working order.
Improve the colour in your workshop
Colour is so important for your mood and motivation. Your workshop should be an area that improves your mood and increases motivation. Our bodies respond to colour in different ways. Commercial and industrial painting projects don’t always factor how colour makes us feel. It’s important to work with a painting specialist who understands the affect of colour on productivity. There should be balance and variety in the colours used. The colours selected should be appropriate to the workshop and what takes place. Work with your painter to find the best coloured paint for your workshop. Do not have plain white space on your walls. Although it can look sharp, it’s too sterile. Artwork, colourful pictures, photos and unique painted blocks are a good option. It needn’t be too complex, get your camera out and start snapping pictures of nature. A simple canvas of your snap could completely change the mood of your workshop.
Adjust the furniture, introduce more nature and utilise space
We know that lighting and colour makes an incredible difference to productivity and mood. How about the space inside your workshop? Introduce plants into your workshop. This is an easy way to incorporate the outside environment into the inside. A painter can paint the pots or add background detail to walls where plants sit. Plants encourage people to relax in the workplace. Any painting specialist will back this, saying that the combination of pop colours and plants will improve the mood. Other ideas for refreshing the workshop is to adjust the furniture. If the budget is tight, your existing furniture can be repainted. It’s a great way to lift the ambience of the workspace whilst keeping costs low. Like all commercial or industrial painting projects, the space in which you take up matters. Ensure there is room to move and only practical furniture in place. Clutter can disrupt your focus and limit productivity. Tidy your workshop and only keep the things you use. Once you’ve decluttered, you can work towards repainting your workshop.
