3 Senior Living Interior Design Trends You Should Know About
Gone are the days of designing senior living communities in what some might call a standard, generic style.
Modern senior living communities are a far cry from the cookie-cutter or institutional stereotype people often think of.
Nowadays, a more “home-meets-hospitality” type of feel is popular in senior living communities and makes for a much cozier, more welcoming experience for seniors and staff members alike. These 3 senior living design trends are the ones that we’ve been seeing time and again recently.
Wood-like Luxury Vinyl Plank
The use of these wood-looking luxury vinyl planks has become increasingly popular in senior living communities. This warmer look helps residents to feel more like they’re at home, not institutionalized. Hard surfaces also allow the facilities to clean and sanitize properly to keep the facility fresh and welcoming.
Carpet tiles have seen significant changes over the years in senior living facilities. Larger format tiles with bright and colorful graphics are softer and make spaces feel more energized.
In addition to carpet tiles, the use of larger patterned broadloom carpets with a solid border around the perimeter of a hallway or corridor is prevalent. What would typically be a long, drab-looking hallway is full of life with a fun pattern that’s easy on the eye.
