Have you heard of ‘biophilic design?’ The trendy term will be familiar to you even if you don’t know what it means – it’s the concept of utilising natural elements in your home design to build a connection with nature and promote wellbeing. If you are looking to incorporate biophilic design in your new bespoke kitchen, bedroom, or study, we have put together some ideas for utilising natural elements in your home design!
What are the benefits of biophilic interiors?
Humans have an inherent connection to the natural world, and being in the outdoors can help produce serotonin and improve both your physical and mental health. Therefore, adding elements of nature into your home design can also produce the same effect, which in turn can help boost productivity, instil a sense of peace, and make your home a more relaxing space.
How can you use Biophilic design in your Home Design?
Any natural element that you can incorporate into the furniture and décor in your home can help create a biophilic atmosphere to improve your wellbeing. Here are some examples of how Bespoke Interiors has helped our clients bring nature indoors:
Adding elements of natural rock or stone into the design of your furniture and kitchen adds extra texture. Choose marble, granite or quartz worktops or surfaces with similar properties.
Natural textures, patterns and colours
Floral patterns, soft natural colours and tropical prints help bring biophilic design to life in your bespoke bedroom or kitchen design. Choose naturally occurring colours and textures featuring greenery, animals, and topiary that invoke a sense of the outdoors in your home.
Foliage, plants, and trees generate fresh air to help improve productivity in your bespoke home office, kitchen or bedroom.
Wooden accents in organic colours add an earthy vibe to your home. We can manufacture bespoke chopping blocks, worktops and other custom features in a variety of woods for your custom kitchen.
Sunlight improves your mood and makes your home feel more spacious, so include as much natural light as possible to brighten up your rooms and create a connection with the outdoors. We can advise on the best layout for your kitchen or bedroom design to incorporate plenty of windows or bi-fold doors for optimal lighting.
