Add a pop of colour to classrooms this summer


Add a pop of colour to classrooms this summer

Throw it back to all those years ago when you were at school, can you remember what your classroom was like? For me all I can picture is a dimly lit, extremely dull and beige classroom with zilch colour in sight. Sounding familiar?

Colour is such a fundamental part of our lives and it can have a huge affect on our emotions and can also stimulate our moods (now it makes sense why I’m so moody all the time, it’s the all black kitchen. Duh).

Unsurprisingly, young children thrive in brightly coloured environments. However colour in schools, especially the colour of classroom floors, is frequently overlooked. It has been proven that injecting a pop of colour into a classroom environment can stimulate participation, promote physical and mental health and aid information retention (frantically throws anything black and brown in sight out of the window).

The use of colour through carpet tiles can also help define a rooms purpose, whether it’s for creative learning or quiet rest and study. Zoning areas also allows children to understand how certain areas of a room are used.

Here at DCTUK we have a great selection of vibrant tiles sure to brighten up any classroom.
