Change the perception of the space: Horizontal lines can increase the width of the room whilst vertical add height.
Cool and light colours: will help make a space seem larger and more open.
Warm and dark colours: create a cosy and safe space.
Atmosphere: cool colour schemes create a calming effect and can help with concentration. Warm colours create a welcoming and uplifting feeling.
Optimise space: painting the teaching wall in a mid colour will help focus attention on the subject matter and it will help the eye relax.
Un-distracting colour scheme: If the door is on the same wall as the smart board, paint it the same colour as the wall to create and unbroken feature wall.
Skirting boards: can be distracting if painted bright white or a different colour to the wall. Consider painting them the same colour as the smart board or teaching wall.
Make the best use of light: when choosing a colour it’s best to look at in the light which it will be viewed. North facing rooms are illuminated by an early light which gives a grey cast. Colours with a red undertone should be used to compensate the cool hue. South facing rooms benefit from a warm glow in the afternoon. It can be intense, especially in summer and strong shadows can be very distracting. Therefore, cool dark colours will work particularly well in southern exposure rooms.
In recent years a big part of our work has been in schools, colleges, hospitals and care homes, these are environments considered by the government to be frequented or occupied by vulnerable people. With this in mind, we take our responsibility very seriously and our people, that carry out work have gone through the necessary DBS vetting procedure before they are allowed on site.
We work with a strong emphasis on health and safety, having First Aid, CSCS, IPAF, PASMA and SSMTS certificates and accreditations.
