Environmental Psychology is a very important element of interior design. At the end of the day, everything about an interior space is how it makes people feel, does it make them feel better or worst? Lets take as an example a working space environment, if it had being designed without take consideration the psychological impact it will have to the users of the space then that work space will end up stressing people and make them feel uncomfortable and unhappy.
This will definitely affect their mood and as a result, it will reduce the amount of work they producing. Instead, if an interior designer considers and imports some key elements that i'm going to analyse later in this article, that will help him create an interior space where people within it will feel happy, unstressed and able to work and produce a better amount of work.
So, which are those elements? what an interior space, whether is a residential or commercial needs so that it will help improve peoples psychology and help them being more comfortable within that space?
Some of these elements are the good lighting, texture, pattern, plants and color. Most of them we can achieved them by creating windows with green views and that will lead to improve the way people feel within a space because what we basically achieving with that, is connect the inside with the outside which is giving pattern, texture and gives life the space. Plus the room gets more natural light and it looks bigger.
