  • May 26, 2016

Hospitals and doctor’s offices can sometimes get overlooked when it comes to interior decorating, but just a few simple design changes can make a huge impact. A well designed space can help ease the nerves of anxious patients while boosting the mood of the staff. Vinyl decals are a great way to decorate in hospitals because there are infinite designs available, they can be applied to walls without damage, and easily cleaned. Here are some hospital decorating ideas to inspire you to add some personality to your hospital, doctor’s office or waiting room.
