5 Tips - Interior Design for well-being

Updated: Nov 10, 2023

We’ve been working on a local project with well-being at its core, it’s been a fast-paced, collaborative design with our friends at Studio Sempura, (another local design company who share a lot of our core values and design passions). ‘The HUB’ is a space within The Dolphin Shopping Centre in Poole, it will be shared by a huge number of amazing organisations including the NHS, community care groups and charities like PRAMA. It’s the definition of ‘a multifunctional space’ but also needs to be inviting and durable.

We are proud to say what came to us as a pretty empty retail unit will soon be transformed into a destination - a place that will serve the community. It will support people with all sorts of mental health needs, help vulnerable people, those feeling lonely and those with addictions or disabilities.

Creating an interior space that promotes well-being is not just about aesthetics; it's about fostering an environment that supports physical, mental, and emotional health. At STUDIO TREVOW we understand how the design of your interiors can have a profound impact on your overall well-being, so following on from our recent work we wanted to share five tips to help you create a harmonious and healthy living or working space:

1. Natural Light and Ventilation

Allowing ample natural light into your space not only saves on energy but also has a positive effect on your mood and circadian rhythms. It can help regulate your sleep patterns and boost productivity during the day. Similarly, proper ventilation ensures fresh air circulation, which is essential for a healthy indoor environment.

2. Biophilic Design

Incorporate elements of nature into your interior design. This can include potted plants, natural wood finishes, or even nature-inspired artwork. Studies show that biophilic design reduces stress, improves concentration, and enhances creativity.

3. Ergonomics and Comfort

Invest in ergonomic furniture and arrange your space for comfort. Consider the principles of ergonomics for your workstations and seating. A comfortable chair and a well-organized workspace can prevent physical discomfort and increase productivity.

4. Colours and Textures

The colours and textures you choose can significantly impact your mood. Soothing, muted colours like blues and greens can promote relaxation, while bright colours can energize a space. Incorporate soft, tactile textures like plush cushions or rugs to create a cosy and comforting atmosphere.

5. Declutter and Organize

A clutter-free space can contribute to a sense of calm and well-being. Regularly declutter your living or working area to eliminate distractions and improve focus. Organize your belongings efficiently to reduce stress associated with mess and disarray.

Remember that well-being is a personal experience, and your interior design choices should reflect your individual preferences and needs. By following these tips and tailoring your design to your own well-being goals, you can create a space that nurtures your body and mind, making it a haven of comfort and positivity – if you need help in doing just that then reach out today.
