Color is a powerful communication tool, dramatically affecting our moods, feelings and emotions. While some colors have their positive effects, such as feeling calm or energetic, other colors have negative affects – like eyestrain.
But let’s stick to the facts: feelings about color are often deeply personal and rooted in your experience or culture. And while perceptions of color are subjective, there are some colors that do have universal meaning.
Color in your next application isn’t only applicable to furniture or decorative accents but lighting as well.

Here are 3 reasons why you need color in your ceiling.
Increase productivity among office workers
Vibrant colors, such as red, yellow and orange, have been known to help increase energy levels. And we all know that in today’s business world, productivity is critical. As more businesses expect employees to work harder across a range of tasks, interior elements, such as color, can impact and improve productivity.
Promote healing in healthcare settings
Research shows that mood-altering effects of color may only be temporary. But in healthcare spaces, every possibility to temporarily and permanently improve a patient’s experience is helpful. Consider blue for pastel hues in a healthcare lobby, patient room or hallway to promote a sense of calmness for visitors and patients alike.
Influence consumer purchases in retail spaces
We’ve mentioned color influences perception. And every color in a store tells a story, driving how shopper perceive merchandise. One study even shows that color increases brand recognition by up to 80%, so try adding a brand’s colors in the ceiling.
