Posted on February 11, 2019 by Cynthia Warner
Take a moment to think about the places you’d like to live in the future. Would you like them to feel familiar and comfortable, or foreign and unusual? Vibrant and full of life, or dull and lifeless? Most likely, you chose the first options. When it comes to senior living design, creating a familiar and vibrant place becomes even more important.
We believe in creating senior living designs that make the transition to independent living, assisted living, and memory care communities easier by creating comfortable, attractive, and vibrant places that give seniors a sense of familiarity.
“Seniors today are looking for a place that has some similar options as what they are used to at home, since it makes what could be a difficult situation more accessible and comfortable,” says Cynthia Warner, Warner Design Associates Co-Founder and Lead Designer. “But additionally, today’s seniors are looking for something a bit luxurious and vibrant – somewhere they can truly enjoy in their golden years.” How do you create a senior living community that is both familiar and vibrant? We’ve included some senior living interior design tips below.
Muted Colors and Accent Pieces
Muted colors and accent pieces give the community a more modern look, and the accent pieces are a great subtle touch of personality in the design. Whether it’s a pillow with a bit of color, or a fun lamp, it adds a simple touch of decor, as well as makes residents feel at home. Plus, it makes it easier for a re-design and keeps furniture and decor up-to-date!
