In general when considering paint colors for learning spaces, medium to light shades of colors are best so as not to overwhelm. Striking that ideal balance between engaging and relaxing is important so lighter colors can be accompanied by accents of deeper shades via art, furniture and decor.
Here are the colors that work well for concentration, critical thinking, focus, analytical skills, and retention, in order of preference:
Lowers blood pressure, calming, excellent for focus and concentration.
Linked to nature and growth green elicits positive reactions and is a great option for learning.
Reminiscent of sunshine and associated with happiness, the color is energizing and can encourage communication and discussion making it an excellent color for moving spaces like hallways, play areas, cafeterias or gymnasiums. In paler shades yellow is comforting and warm making it a good option for learning spaces.
