Why Is It Relevant Today?

With a waning link with nature, there’s even less opportunity for us to strengthen our mental and physical energy. Studies have shown, however, that health can be boosted by incorporating natural elements into the built environment. In fact, corporations like Apple, Amazon and Google are now investing heavily in Biophilic Design. These principles have been shown to improve concentration, engagement and also cognitive ability.

Key Features of Biophilic Design

Biophilic Design is quickly becoming a solution for built-up cities. Large concrete buildings are a common sight but thankfully you can join the Biophilic movement. There are many ways to take advantage of this, whether for your home or your companies office. All it takes is just a little bit of effort, here are some main features to study:

The Natural Environment; Light, Patterns and Shapes

A pure environment focuses on features you would normally find in the natural world. This is things like sunlight and earthy colours all incorporated into an interior setting. Biophilic Design emphasises light in particular, as it helps to merge the indoors with out. Organic shapes and patterns like interior door wood grains will also emphasise any experiences you have had in nature.

Indoor Plants to Improve Wellness

When you think about natural design, what springs to mind? Wonderful plant life of course! But this doesn’t mean you have to live in a jungle, a selection of house plants is just fine. Focus on foliage with health-boosting properties like Aloe Vera, English Ivy and Lavender. Spider plants are also superb for removing formaldehyde from the air in your home.

What Biophilic Design Research Suggests

According to experts, biophilic workplaces could save the UK £1 billion per year. This is due to increased productivity and a reduction in absence with both staff and employers feeling the benefits alike. Studies also suggest that as a nation we spend 90% of our lives indoors. When it comes to the home, inject a little nature and you’re likely to see many tangible health benefits.

Solid Wood Doors for Biophilic Design at Home

Our homes are truly important spaces, massively impacting on our health and happiness. Make the most of yours with Biophilic Design and you may even increase its value too. Homes that are calming with access to nature can command an increase of up to 5% in property price. Embrace invigorating scents, lots of sunlight and natural materials like timber doors.

If you love the monochrome look then why not finish your scheme with inky interior doors? Shown here in jet black, they can even be enhanced with a chrome or brass bronze inlay finish. 🖤
