Healthcare facilities are getting away from the stereotypical institutional colors and are instead being influenced by residential design, according to an article on the Medical Construction & Design website.
They are also looking at the hospitality and commercial markets for color cues.
When a patient enters a hospital room, they want it to feel as at-home as possible. This is where residential design is influencing the healthcare segment.
For more public areas of healthcare facilities, pops of color can add energy to a space and provide visual cues to highlight a specific design element or provide wayfinding throughout a large campus.
Refreshing citrus hues, sometimes seen in office environments, can create this effect.
