Wayfinding can have a very powerful impact on our wellbeing.
If you've ever been to a building you're not familiar with, such as a hospital, then you understand the anxiety that can be experienced when you're unable to find your destination easily. Wayfinding, incorporated by various design elements, helps individuals easily identify where they need to go without confusion or challenges along the way. The use of carpet tiles can provide a unique design solution. Modular carpet offers design flexibility by selecting various colors, patterns, installation directions and mixing with other flooring materials such as LVT, wood and/or tile.
Carpet can create a comfortable environment. Not only does carpet cushion our footsteps, thus reducing fatigue, but can also provide traction which can help minimize slips, trips and falls and even the impact from them. This is especially worth considering in schools and elderly care facilities.
In colder climates, carpet may also provide insulation benefits by retaining warm air longer. Not only does this help enhance the wellbeing of a buildings occupants but also positively impact a building's operational efficiency.
