Art in the workplace does more than just make it look nicer. Commercial art can be used as a workplace motivation technique because it:
- Creates a pleasant environment
Colors, textures, and imaginary are key components that make art pleasing to the eye. Anything that makes 9-5 a little more enjoyable is bound to lead to collateral benefits.
- Boosts creativity
Aesthetics calm people down, while also acting as a catalyst to the right side of your brain. Anything you can do as a managerial force—that incites creativity while reducing stress—is worth your while. Creative individuals are invaluable in the workplace, make them feel at home. Staring at a blank wall is not likely to generate any unique ideas. On the other hand, having an environment stimulates the senses and engages the mind!
- Reduces stress
Once again, a blank wall isn’t going to have much to offer during times of stress. A beautiful original textural painting or interesting piece of photography, however, may be able to take a person out of the moment for a brief breath of fresh air. Organic, fluid, and calming color palette artworks are the best for stress release.
- Fosters office pride
The pride you take in your company and your office trickles down to your employees and your customers. Office art creates a workplace that your employees are proud to walk into every day.

- Attracts clients/prospects
Whether the art makes for nice website and social media visuals, or for a better experience for the customer at your location, art can certainly help to make your business more attractive. Art welcomes us, as opposed to large wall clocks which remind us of the running time.
