How good interior design improves your health

This year, April 7, 2023 not only marks Good Friday, but also World Health Day, an annual global health awareness day sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO), which, this year, celebrates its 75th anniversary. 

Of course, health covers a broad range of issues, but for us at Temple & Webster, we focus on how we can help you make your homes and workspaces safe, peaceful, productive and inspiring to keep you and those around you at your best, both physically and mentally. Here are some ways in which good interior design can improve your health.

Reducing stress

A well-designed space with natural light, soothing colours and comfortable furniture can all help to create a calming environment. Incorporating natural materials and greenery can also help to reduce stress levels and boost your mood.

Improving sleep

While exercise, diet and lifestyle all affect our ability to get a good night’s sleep, furniture and bedding choices and considered bedroom styling can also promote restful sleep. Check out our blog post on how to sleep better for tips on good sleep hygiene, plus see our mattress buying guide and articles on how to choose a quilt and how to pick the perfect pillow to find the sleeping essentials that best suit your body’s needs.

Boosting productivity

Adequate lighting, comfortable seating and a clutter-free space can all help to create an atmosphere that encourages focus and creativity. The pandemic taught us a lot about how best to set up a workspace at home, including how to choose the perfect desk and how to organise your home office, and a lot of these principles can also be applied to other areas of the home.

Promoting physical health

Good design can also actually help to improve physical health, whether it's ergonomic chairs to prevent back pain; standing desks and exercise equipment to encourage movement and activity; the right window treatments for natural lighting, or diffusers to improve air quality

Improving mood

Colours and textures have profound impact on mood. Bright colours can promote positivity and energy, while neutral colours, greens and blues are often the go-to hues for serenity. Incorporating soft fabrics and natural materials such as linen can also help to create a comfortable and inviting space that fosters positive emotions.

We are also thrilled to apply these principles to our most recent project with our partner Black Dog Institute and the design of their psychedelic treatment rooms.
