Color plays a huge role in the feel of a space. Some people work best in a dark, low-lit room while others feel more efficient working in a bright, sunny room. When choosing your color palette for a study room, it is important to keep in mind what kind of surroundings you thrive in.
While it all depends on the person, most individuals find dim lighting the best to work in. Research has also proven that this to be true. According to psychologists Anna Steidel and Lioba Werth, when the lights turn down something in the brain switches on. “Apparently, darkness triggers a chain of interrelated processes, including a cognitive processing style, which is beneficial to creativity,” Steidel and Werth stated in the Journal of Environmental Psychology.
With that being said, when you decide to create a study room in your home, keep in mind that this is not just another room. It may be tempting to just throw random pieces in there and paint it any color under the sun but it will be more beneficial to you in the long run to put a little extra heart and soul into this space.
If you really want to make your study room a place for creativity to flourish, make it so that you can adapt the feel of the room to the project you are working on. Some days you may want a bright, airy feel with the windows open and lights all the way up. Other days, you may desire no sunlight with just a few lamps here and there.
Whatever you do, make it your own! This is all about what will make you feel more efficient in your work and what will encourage your mind to focus on the task at hand.
