Evidence-based design research confirms the healing and calming powers of organic, natural colors when used in a healthcare setting, according to an article on the FacilityCare website.
Choosing the right colors can create a functional, attractive design. Some examples include:
• Soft and warm neutral hues are reminiscent of homelike spaces and communicate a sense of rest and security.
• Color can aid residents who are experiencing decreasing vision or stimulate patients with decreasing memory.
• Aging eyes add a tint of yellow to what they see. So, bright colors such as sunset oranges work well as a wayfinding tool.
