You’ve got a hospital appointment coming up in the calendar. When you imagine yourself sitting in the waiting room, you probably picture an area that’s white, stern, cold and – let’s face it – quite intimidating. But hospitals don’t have to be like that anymore. In fact, in the USA, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d walked into a 5-star hotel as you wait for your checkup. Contractors and architects in the UK are finally catching up, realising that their designs can meet industry infection control standards while also being contemporary, inviting and a little less clinical. Here are some of the main benefits of this new wave of hospital aesthetics and furniture:
Colour psychologists have proven that our decor choices can have a profound impact on the way we feel. By ripping up the rule book and straying away from the cool tones traditionally associated with hospitals and healthcare centres, you can create a space that’s much less stressful to be in for staff and patients alike. Just take a look at our colour cards for inspiration: there are a wide range of warm neutrals, grained woods and vibrant oranges, reds, blues, purples and greens available for your door and worktop finishes.
It can be hard to source hospital furniture that combines safety with the latest trends. When you buy from a specialist manufacturer of fitted hospital furniture who understands that hospital design needs a radical rethink, you get the best of both worlds. Not only are the shelves, worktops, desks and storage units modern and stylish, but you also know that they meet all relevant sanitation standards including HTM 63 and 71.
It’s all available in the UK
