We all know that good interior design can help a property sell. However, did you know that good interior design can also improve one’s health? It may sound far-fetched, but it’s true. Consider the research. Stress is a killer. Stress can wreak havoc on our immune, digestive, and reproductive systems. Next, consider how many of us feel after a day of work: stressed out. Now, imagine how great it would feel to come home to a space that is designed in such a way that it feels like a retreat. A home that is designed to elevate mood and relieve stress. It follows then that good interior design can diminish the potential negative health impacts of stress and improve one’s health.
Our designers know that a home designed in such a way that is inviting and promotes happiness is good for one’s overall well-being. We always take into consideration what will appeal to the potential buyer and evoke positive feelings. The two primary ways in which we use good interior design to improve one’s health is by carefully choosing colors and strategically incorporating greenery.
Carefully Choosing Design Colors
It is a commonly accepted fact that the color of a room can induce strong feelings. According to the Institute for Color Research people will make a subconscious judgment about an environment or product within 90 seconds of initial viewing. Further, they base that judgement on color alone. As such, our designers put a lot of thought into color choices. For example, we tend to choose shades of green or lavender to create a calming environment for bedrooms. Blue hues tend to make people productive, and as such we often use them in home offices or flex spaces. We know that color is a powerful design tool. A tool that can make the rooms in a model home, clubhouse (or any space), feel more calm, cheerful, comfortable, or dramatic as the need dictates.
Strategically Incorporating Health-Inducing Greenery
There is no denying that the outdoors can be an instant mood booster. Knowing the positive mood that a nature-inspired design can elicit, our designers work to incorporate greenery when appropriate. Be it invitingly-merchandised outdoor living spaces, sophisticated floral finishes, or houseplants, our model homes integrate greenery strategically throughout the design. All in an effort to elevate the mood and reduce stress of any potential home buyer.
