Trends that have been changing healthcare interior design detailing
Houston, USA – Monday, January 8, 2018 : The healthcare ‘interior’ environment has a significant level of influence when it comes to the care and well-being of patients, staff and the visitors. Apart from the modern advances in the medicine sector, the hospitals are also equipped with the most current technologies and innovations when it comes to interior design detailing.
In the recent years, we have noticed a shift in the healthcare industry – they are now looking beyond the ‘functional’ aspect and moving towards creating a more ‘healing’ and ‘homelike’ space for the patients. The focus is more on quality of the care that is given to them. This shift has affected the interior design detailing in a big way.
Here are 3 big trends that have transformed the healthcare interior design detailing in the healthcare industry
Nature is a great healer – a concept coming alive again
Hospitals and other care providers have taken the ‘treatment’ concept to the next level. The interior design construction drawings of hospitals now incorporate an easy access to the outdoor space. The patients tend to forget their illness for a bit when they are out bonding with nature. Great seating places all around the outdoor space, enough support through lean-in railings to get there is a crucial part of the working drawings.
A deeper focus on the quality of living for patients
Offering a ‘home-like’ environment is becoming very popular in the health industry. Hospitals don’t ‘feel’ or ‘smell’ like hospitals anymore. It’s a more cohesive ‘healing’ space which provides comfort that is important for the patients recovery. The interior design plan drawings include options for lower noise levels, comfortable lighting, specific furniture layout and selection, healing colors and patterns. All this without compromising on the design and intensive requirement such as though architects add comfortable lighting to the spaces, they need to ensure space is well-lit.
Creating a more cohesive waiting area
Hospitals don’t just pay attention to their patients, but a much-needed attention is given to the visitors that include family and children. The interior design working drawings here focus on making the family spaces spacious and well-lit. Some more excruciatingly detailed working drawings include comfortable high-back chairs giving the family the space to rest their heads. Oversized chairs where mothers can sit with their children nestled around. Some architects even include play areas for kids and teens. Here the working drawings incorporate mazes, games and spaces for doing homework on laptops.
According to BluEnt, the healthcare industry design is continually evolving offering newer and more cohesive healing environments. It has become extremely important for the institutions in this industry to keep up to these trends to stay ahead in the competition. Today, every hospital tries to provide the best treatment, however, offering advanced medicines is no longer the only benchmark for selection.
