When you think of a hospital, you most likely do not think of art or decorations. Hospitals are stereotypically bare, but this does not mean that a little bit of color or hospital wall art would not go a long way in helping your patients and patrons feel more comfortable in a place that can feel overwhelming and frightening at times. We do not think you should go and color the walls in bright pinks and blues immediately, but instead, start out subtly with a few changes here and there and see how they are received. Then up your ante and implement bigger changes that will completely transform a room, the hallways, or the overall appearance of your hospital. Here are some great hospital wall art ideas to help you get started.
Although we might call it wall art, you may see it as just a functional piece of wording, but directional signs can be wall art. You can put up large wall murals of the directions to the Emergency Room or Financial Aid office with arrows and other tidbits of information. Rather than mess with hanging signs that fall or get knocked off the wall from someone rubbing against it, go for a smoother option. Wall murals adhere directly to the wall or ceiling and can last for years. They will not fall, damage the paint or wall beneath, and will withstand any amount of rubbing, kicking, scratching or more. You can even install wall murals with an extra layer of protection through a premium coating that goes over the top. Do you have room changes every now and then? No worries, you can easily peel off the wall mural and flip the arrow, or store the wall mural in a cool, dry place during construction and then reinstall once construction is done and directions are once again needed.
Another great idea for your hospital wall art is to install it actually on a window or two. Vinyl wall murals are printed in such a way that they can cover a window but do not block the light. This way, you can install a mural over the windows of your hospital with your logo or other branding or images, or marketing to spruce up the outside of your building while also giving your inside space a little color too. Pick an area or window space that has multiple windows that can image can span across to make it really large. Also pick a certain wall or section of the hospital that sees a lot of traffic, if no one is seeing it your advertising will not be doing any good.
Wall murals can also be printed so that they are light-blocking, or solid, this could be a great solution for a window that needs to be covered for privacy but is a better, cooler option than blinds or curtains.
Among the hospital wall art ideas is making sure you have images of your teams and the faces of the hospital up. Photos and images of your doctors, nurses, assistants, and techs are not only a great option for decorating a space, but it can be multi-functional too--you can help visitors find familiar faces, while also giving your employees a bit of a boost, knowing that you feel confident in them. Confident enough to plaster them up on a wall for everyone to see. Highlight superior teams. Or install portraits of the teams, physicians, and nurses of one clinic or department in their clinic space or office suite. This can help patients and patrons know who they can expect to work with, and who is who in the office or clinic.
You are most likely already using images of your teams working on your website or as educational material. If so, you can easily turn one of those images into a wall mural by creating a custom wall mural at LimitLess Walls. Just upload a high-resolution image onto the website and crop it to the specific size of the wall or window you wish to cover. Then you can order your very own, unique and custom wall mural.
If you have hallways or areas that are appropriate spaces to decorate, transform them from the sterile and boring into something fun and exciting. Take any boring space and give it its very own pizazz. You can install a full mural to cover the entire hallway in panels or put up some fun but classy wallpaper. Even better, host an employee art show and hang photos and paintings down by your very own employees. Rent the wall space out to local artists and let them hang their own artwork up for sale on the walls for a couple months each year. This is a great hospital wall art idea as it can help enrich the community while also giving your space a little something extra. If there are specific limits in patient rooms or certain parts of the hospital, no worries. There are enough walls and hallways in administrative offices and other departments that a little bit of artwork could go a long way.
For each specific department, find a wall art or wallpaper solution that is specific to that department's focus. For the labor and delivery department, you could install photos or a wall mural of a newborn, or infants (stock images are great as they will not violate patient confidentiality). This kind of hospital wall art is a great way to give each department the opportunity to have a little bit of fun with their decorations and space. You could install a wallpaper with a pattern of hearts on it in Cardiology. Or put up images of young children in the Pediatrics department.
Involve your department chairs or heads in making this decision and let them choose something that will work for that specific space and that will help patrons and guests know where they are at, and that they are in the right spot. We know it can get confusing trying to make your way through each winding corridor and each hallway can start to feel and look the same. With specific wall art for each department, you can help any visitors find their way around.
Just remember that as you come up with hospital wall art ideas that you do not have to stick to anything traditional. Have fun with it. There are countless options to choose from at LimitLess Walls that we are sure you can find something that will be appropriate and fun for your space.
