    The role that colours have in our lives is far greater than most of us might imagine. Environment in which we live is composed of different colours and their shades. When we are aware of the meaning of colours and their impact on mental and physical well-being, we can also better choose the right colours and shades for our clothing, home and work environment which would bring us the desired feelings. With this thesis we researched how colours in the school environment affect the well-being of pupils in elementary schools. The objectives of the research were: to determine whether the colours in the classrooms have impact on the well-being of students; if the survey results would differ significantly by gender in the first section and if they would be similar in the second section; if the survey results would be similar by the age of pupils. Elementary schools that participated in the survey are smaller urban schools and rural schools. Surveys were given to grades 2, 3, 4 and 5 in elementary schools. The results showed that pupils preferred the colour blue the most and brown the least. The predominant colour in their homes and rooms is mostly white. Colours that dominate most of their clothing are black and blue. The predominant colour in their classrooms is white. Pupils evaluated their well-being with a rating of very poor in a classrooms dominated by gray colour, with a rating of poor in classrooms dominated by brown colour and with a rating of good in the classrooms dominated by white colour. With a rating of very good pupils evaluated their well-being in classrooms with a predominant orange colour and a rating of excellent in the classrooms with a predominant blue colour.
