The psychological effect colour can have in the home

Have you ever sat in a room and felt something you could not quite put your finger on? Maybe you suddenly felt anxious or in a hurry to leave. Or perhaps you felt calm, as if all your worries had somehow disappeared.

Although both feelings are quite different, they do have one thing in common, they were provoked by the colours in the room that surrounded you at the time.

It is no coincidence fast food restaurants use “fast colours” such as reds, yellows, and oranges for their branding. These colours stimulate our energy and often increase our blood pressure. We subconsciously find ourselves ordering more than we need, eating faster than anticipated, and leaving prematurely before inhaling that last chicken nugget.

Fast food restaurants are just one example of brands and advertisements that are utilising colour psychology. The effects of colour have three major roles which include conveying information, evoking emotions, and influencing decision making. As a result, EZ Living Furniture want to help customers utilise the right colours in their homes.

So here are EZ Living Furniture’s top four colours to boost the mood and energy in your home.

It really is that EZ.
