Your patients’ experience of your space is important. Critically, surgeries don’t have to be cold, impersonal places, and you will benefit from the opposite!
We believe that adding those “homey” touches can instantly spruce up your practice interior and give your surgery a cozy vibe your patients will love. Such an interior transformation can improve your patients’ service experience from the moment they walk through the front door of your clinic.
To ensure our fitout designs stay up to date with the times, one has to take inspiration from the latest and greatest in interior design trends. At Dentifit, we’re in the business of making your medical/dental practice beautiful, modern, and optimised for comfort and efficiency. Let’s take a look at 4 of the top interior design trends for 2019 and how they can be used to innovate your surgery design.
Bright, bold and beautiful
When we think “medical/dental surgery”, the colour palette that first springs to mind is varying shades of stark, pristine white. However, it’s a well-known fact that bold colours attract the eye and can really lift the mood of an interior space. Navy blues, rich reds and oranges are popular choices in 2019 for injecting some excitement into your interior colour scheme. The key here is balance – use bold colours sparingly as a statement feature or an accent to engage your patients’ eye without overwhelming them.
As minimalism in interior design continues to grow ever more popular, it encourages us to think about how we can use space even more efficiently. 2019 is seeing a surge in multi-functional spaces, where clean, minimalist furniture pieces serve multiple purposes. Think ottomans and coffee tables that double as extra storage, combination desks that come with an inbuilt cabinet and multiple shelves, or specifically for a surgery, multi-functional patient chairs that can be folded out for use as a bed.
Got a green thumb? Why not apply that in your medical practice? The trend for indoor plants isn’t going away anytime soon, and it’s a quick and easy way to bring freshness and life to your surgery. You can get really creative with this, given the abundance of succulents and leafy green plants designed for indoor use that are readily available. Of course, live plants require ongoing care and nurturing, so if that sounds like too much hard work, artificial plants are a great alternative, being barely distinguishable from the real thing nowadays.
Your own personal touch
Trends come and go, but individualism is forever! Put a few of your own personal touches here and there in your practice – anything that reflects you, your brand, and your story. As soon as your patients walk in, they’ll feel like they’re a part of that story, and that’s a personalised service experience created in an instant.
