Deciding on the interior design style for your dental clinic isn’t an easy choice. The way your clinic looks is often seen as a reflection on the quality of your professional care and customer service, so it’s important that you get the interior design spot on.
When choosing a design style, you need to consider your clientele, the “personality” for your practice and your existing branding (such as your logo style and colours).
To provide some inspiration, here are three examples of different interior design styles that feature in a some of Elite’s recent dental clinic fitouts.
Northshore Dental’s new Pacific Paradise clinic features the perfect blend of clean, modern lines and earth-toned colourful hues. The smooth, sleek surfaces, striking vertical paneling on the back wall and the modern pendants set the tone for the practice. This provides a visual reinforcement of the practice’s commitment to deliver state-of-the-art dental treatment.
Drawing inspiration from the outdoors, earthy accents of burnt orange and rust-red feature in the otherwise neutral space. The inclusion of the colourful furniture – along with large potted plants – gives a homely feel to the practice.
The vision behind the Racecourse Road Dental clinic was to create a practice where patients feel like guests, rather than patients. The colours and design elements were chosen to provide a distinct feel of a luxury 5-star hotel or day-spa with high end finishes and discerning interiors.
Walls and ceilings were painted in a pale colour, complemented by floor coverings in muted tones. Natural materials were incorporated throughout the clinic, with plentiful light filtering through the windows in the offices, surgeries and foyer.
Plush furniture in the waiting room and offices add to luxe feel, with colourful artwork adorning the walls throughout.
A key requirement for this high-end, stylish dental implant clinic was an impressive and comfortable waiting room. When entering the practice, patients are presented with a bright and modern reception and waiting area.
A modern, coastal colour scheme was an important aspect of the practice design, with blue accents applied throughout the clinic to complement the timber finishes and bright white walls.
Timber veneer American oak panels extend from behind the reception desk to form a feature along the entire length of the waiting room ceiling. The coastal theme continues with the flooring, with stone white ceramic tiles extending from the entranceway through to the reception desk, offset by a shale-coloured carpet feature inlay in the waiting area.
A large print of the local coastline features prominently in the waiting area, complemented by a cobalt blue fabric sofa and white coffee table.
In the dental surgeries, steri and lab rooms the coastal colour scheme continues. The blue accent colour features in splash-backs and dental chairs, and is nicely offset by the white cabinetry, wall colour, equipment and flooring.
