Interior Design's Impact on Patients
When your home and/or office is a mess, it can cause you to feel stressed.

The same thing is true when you're trying to heal.

If you've been in the hospital or gone to visit someone, you might have noticed the blank, washed-out space in which the patient is placed.

Even though there are hundreds of rooms within a hospital, it's important for the patient and the staff to feel comfortable.

Some designers have been working to transform hospital rooms into brighter, comfortable spaces that spark the conscious process of healing and mental peace.
