Webinar: Wellness Design in the Home

June 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Presentation Description:
Home. The definition of what makes a house a home may not have changed, but the disruption caused by the global health crisis has upended how we live in, feel about and use our homes. As designers, you play a vital role in helping your clients transform underutilized spaces and incorporate colors and materials that help them “live well” in their homes. This course will explore the dynamics impacting residential design in the COVID era, identify the role that paint technologies can play in helping promote indoor air quality, review how intrinsic color is in the well-being discussion, and identify design elements that harness the power of nature to promote physical and emotional well-being.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define “Home”: Understand the trends influencing residential design in the COVID-era.
  2. Put the Walls to Work: Learn how coating technologies can help contribute to well-being, with respect to indoor air quality, odors, mold & mildew and disease-causing bacteria.
  3. Incorporating Nature: Incorporate strategies for including biophilic design elements that harness the power of nature to promote physical and emotional well-being.
  4. Color & Well-Being: Review the role color plays in promoting a feeling of well-being within a space.
