The Importance of Interior Design in Your Healthcare Facility

Interior design is about crafting a beautiful interior environment that serves all the needs of humans using architectural details and furnishings. The goal is to create a user-friendly space that the users will enjoy.  Neenan Archistruction® is a building design and construction company based in Fort Collins, Colorado. Below, we’ll go over the importance of interior design in your healthcare facility. Contact us today!

Don't Underestimate the Aesthetics of Your Healthcare Facility

The first thing people notice when they enter your healthcare facility are the visuals. They will take in the number of windows, the color of the walls, the cleanliness of the floors, and the comfort of the seating all within seconds. Healthcare design should incorporate high-end finishes, such as textured walls and mirrored tiles, views out the windows if possible, and greenery that offers a soothing feel.

Support Green Life at Every Turn

It’s hard to value the impact a bright, beautiful and aromatic flower can have on a patient who just got out of surgery. Or, a surprising blooming plant in the corner of a waiting room. When you surround yourself with beauty, you should feel beautiful inside. Your mood should elevate, and your recovery should be faster. The color green has been shown to calm and soothe people, lower stress and anxiety, and make them more comfortable. Add life to your waiting areas, rooms, and corridors to make your patients’ lives brighter, indeed.

Incorporate Natural Light Over "Hospital" Lighting

There is a stigma with hospital lighting that creates a cloud that just hangs over hospitals and patients. This stigma has been in place for decades and still comes to mind when people think of hospitals. Healthcare design and construction can work to incorporate natural lighting as much as possible into hospitals. Skylights can be incorporated, as well as frosted glass that still lets in light, but maintains a patient’s privacy, too.

Put the Patients' Comfort as the Highest Priority

Being in a hospital naturally pushes people’s comfort zone. After all, they are probably ill or having surgery and just want to be home. They want their amenities around them that make them feel better. When healthcare construction companies account for comfort as one of the highest priorities in design, patients can feel better and relaxed.
