A new approach to promoting wellness in the design of your residential project

Phantom Screens / May 22, 2020

Developers, architects and builders understand the value of design to increase a home’s value. By blending tried-and-true popular elements like open floor plans with new designs that quickly catch the buyer’s eye is the best way to improve your project’s selling potential.

A recent design trend involves creating a seamless visual connection between the home’s interior and outside environment. Nature has a profound positive impact on an individual’s mental and physical well-being according to Positive Psychology, and keeping the outdoors in mind while designing your next residential project can be an amazing selling point.

Here are a few ways you can promote wellness in your property: 

1. Ensure there’s plenty of natural light

Natural light boosts your vitamin D, improves sleep and can enhance your mood, according to Healthline. Including plenty of windows that provide an unobstructed view of the outdoors in your design promotes these benefits and can even make the property look more spacious. 

2. Create an all-seasons indoor/outdoor space

Kipligner recently found that 87% of homeowners desire an outdoor living space, and there’s no better way to accomplish this than with an all-seasons patio. With Phantom’s motorized screens, you can create a multi-functional, climate controlled space where buyers can picture themselves enjoying a meal in the outdoors or relaxing in the fresh air after a long day.

3. Add areas to appreciate nature

Having plants in the home not only improves air quality, but can also enhance concentration by up to 15%, reported NBC News. Add plenty of space near windows for new homeowners to keep their greenery or even seating options near windows with a clear view of the outdoors.
