Colour choices for office fitouts, at the start of this new decade, are definitely not for the faint-hearted!
Expect to see a host of bold, dramatic colours used in offices throughout Australia, as designers select strong palettes to make statements and truly change things up.
Let’s take a look at some of the colour trends for 2020.
Variations on one colour
Monochromatic colours are the order of the day for the latest office fitouts. If this sounds dull, think again.
While ‘monochromatic’ refers to ‘one colour’, smart designers are using multiple variations on a single colour to decorate and enhance the workplace.
So, if yellow or blue is your choice, expect to see the whole spectrum of yellow or blue shades used on your office walls, floors, furniture and accessories.
This gives you pretty much unlimited scope to play around with your selected colour – and the effect can be stunning.
Some companies are choosing their primary brand colour as a base, then working in a variety of different shades.
Contrast and clash
Not all 2020 fitout specialists are content with using one colour, however. Another emerging trend suggests throwing vivid colours together to challenge the norm.
The emphasis is on pushing the boundaries of traditional ‘good taste’ by making bold colour statements – and clashes.
Unleash your inner trail-blazer with a daring marriage of neon orange, bright green and dark grey, for instance. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
If your branding features more than one main colour, consider using them in your interior fitouts.
Rainbow and primary colours for office fitouts
Another 2020 colour trend might take you back to childhood.
This blends big, bright and beautiful colours in a rainbow palette which lifts the workplace and elevates the mood.
Maybe it’s a reaction to all those neutral shades and Scandi-minimalist tones that have tried so hard to be inoffensive.
Well, it’s time to break out of the colour shackles and try your hand – yellow, red, orange and blue are all proving to be popular colours.
Slightly softer blends of mint, coral, pink and creamy blue are also lighting up office fitouts.
