Description

Although environmentally sustainable interior design has become a bigger issue in interior design practice, the frequency with which interior designers make sustainable choices in real practice is still limited, particularly where materials selection is concerned.  Sustainability and healthy material choices are also problematic and can impact on interior designers’ considerations when they are looking to design a ‘healthy house’ to meet the growing needs of clients. Both living and workspaces can greatly influence people’s physical health as well as their emotional state of mind. Thus it’s important to create environments that stimulate people’s senses in a good way, that improve productivity or relaxation in today’s often multi-function spaces, and that have health and wellness benefits to the people using them.
