How to create aesthetic and hygienic interiors ?
In this difficult time when our health is influenced by everything we touch, the new era of interior environments creates a trend for an aesthetic, hygienic and meaningful place. A safe clean living space with a calming, comfortable atmosphere is needed.
There are few factors to consider:
- Layout or adaptable space
- Fabrics and materials
- Biophilic designs
- Integrated technology
The design and layout you choose will depend on many factors, including the type of house, the number of people it will accommodate, and whether they have any special needs.
The effect of colour on mood and open-plan style space are examples of common medical design trends.
Some materials transfer pathogens more effectively than others; therefore, we must look at implementing specific antimicrobial materials. In hospital rooms, for instance, which are also relatively small, interior designers choose materials that can be easily cleaned and sterilised – materials like sheet vinyl floors with rolled edges, laminated countertops and stainless steel sinks with offset drain.
Biophilic design can be described simply as ‘bringing the outside indoors’. Integrating elements of the natural world into the design of your home will relax inhabitants and make the space feel more open. Inviting more natural light into your house through floor-to-ceiling windows, glass curtain walls, and skylights is a good idea.
Increased daylight exposure can also help to reduce the levels of bacteria found in dust and dead human skin cells.
A sterilised kitchen, bathrooms and open reception area can be set around the perimeter of the clinic, distinguished from the rest of the space by their clean-cut fit-out. There should be direct access to a personal protective and cleaning equipment. Layout of space should allow us to create easy habbits of cleaning routines and vigilant waste management to reduce the risk of the virus spreading.
The bathrooms must be completely equipped with hydrotherapy equipment, including such things as sitz baths, multiple marathon showers, and the latest type of sanitary fixtures… The ventilation, or even high-tech air filtration, in addition to natural sunshine, and light ideas are exceedingly modern.
The living room and bedrooms should avoid certain furnishings or superfluous draperies, carpets, and ornaments. And inside the bedroom there can be as well its accompanying sleeping porch so that sleeping can be done outdoors (while windows are open).
The core fundamentals of design evolve around color theory, space drafting, different types of architecture, building codes and current business practices. In addition to basic scheme, the architects always explore into your specific desires. In recent years there was a big interest through electives in sustainable design, furniture design and more.
Today it might be necessary to not only declutter the space around and simplify aesthetics, but also to go much further… We must think of a new way of life; start to introduce regime of hygiene, spike immunity and search for a peace beyond the reach of invisible intruders
Good health is above wealth.
