When most people think of office buildings rows of cubicles, fluorescent lighting and lots of beige walls come to mind. These dull spaces can put even the most ambitious employees into a work induced coma. The 9-5 workaholic culture can actually decrease productivity enough that new innovative companies are adopting a new approach to make work a fun experience. Creating a lighter atmosphere and adding in some unconventional job perks can change a boring day at work to a fun place employees want to go back to each morning. Innovative office spaces can inspire creativity in employees and encourage more participation and ideas from workers. The lighter atmosphere brings people together and people feel more included than hidden away in a cubicle shut off from the outside world.  Fun offices make employees feel more valued and a part of the company.

Color can change the mood of an office space. White, grey or beige walls can be boring and make people feel sluggish or tired, while bright colors can bring on happier feelings and emotions. Some colors like light orange can have a calming, relaxing aspect to them and yellow can make someone feel happier.
