A well-designed care home can create a welcoming and comfortable environment for residents, while also supporting their health and wellbeing.
One of the most important aspects of good care home design is colour and contrast. Good use of colour and contrast can not only create an aesthetically pleasing environment, but can also help residents with visual impairments, or dementia, navigate the space more easily. This can have a significant impact on their quality of life and overall wellbeing.
But colour and contrast aren't the only considerations when it comes to care home design. Biophilic design can also play a significant role in creating a comfortable and supportive environment. By incorporating natural elements like plants and natural light in my design I created a calming and healing atmosphere that supports residents' physical and emotional health.
It was important on this design to also not forget about the importance of functional design. Care homes need to be designed to meet the specific needs of their residents, including accessibility and safety considerations.
Good colour and contrast, biophilic design elements, and functional design can all contribute to a comfortable and supportive environment for residents. And when it comes to care homes, the comfort and wellbeing of residents should always be top priority.
