B&Q sees sales of blue and green paint rise by a third

B&Q has revealed how it has seen a big increase in sales of blue and green paint during the coronavirus pandemic.

The shades have been very popular with sales rising by 36% and 32% respectively year-on-year as customers try to create a more calming atmosphere in their homes.

B&Q has partnered with interior design psychology expert Niki Schafer to share tips with customers on how to rejuvenate the home with new colours.

Schafer said: “Greens and blues are very calming colours as they literally soothe us and (very marginally) lower our blood pressure. These shades work really well in bedrooms or as an accessory colour in kitchens. Blue is also said to be productive and is a good addition to home offices and gyms – perfect if you’re planning to create a more permanent space for home workouts or working from home.

“Green patterns, foliage in particular, can have an even more powerful effect on our mood bringing a double dose of positivity by introducing the soothing theme of nature into our minds.”
