Healthier spaces for a healthier YOU!
Whether a person is recovering from an illness or injury, or just trying to cope with the nuances of everyday life, the surrounding environment can have a profound impact (positively or negatively). Color, space planning, furniture, hardware/accessory choices & placement, paint, flooring and textiles can all affect a patient's health & the health of their caregiver(s). Applying Integrative Lifestyle Design principles can make a difference to those facing challenges such as ADD/ADHD, stress, anxiety, headaches, fatigue, allergies, asthma and visual impairment.
***These same principles can be applied to the physician office, clinic & to treatment rooms!***
Did you know:
Paint colors can affect sleep, heart rate, blood pressure and concentration?
Indoor environments can have levels of pollutants that are 3x higher than levels found outside?
Indoor Air Quality can impact the health, comfort, well-being and productivity of the building's occupants?
Odors and chemical vapors from cleaning supplies, paint, carpeting, paneling and furniture are emitted as gasses called volatile organic compounds (VOC)? (The VOCs in paint can off-gas up to 18 months and capeting can off-gas up to 5 years after installation!).
Proper space planning can help those with ADD/ADHD and make spaces comfortable, safe and accessible for all, regardless of age, height or ability?
