WELLNESS BY DESIGN

Enhancing care through interior finishes that accelerate the healing process while exceeding health and safety requirements

MDC understands the importance of creating a healthcare facility that is a healing environment for both patients and staff. Studies prove that spaces using certain interior finishes, colors, materials, and nature inspired imagery, can help and accelerate the process of treating patients.

Interior designers in this field realize the right colors and patterns have the power to deinstitutionalize healthcare facilities and strive to balance their design goals with the unique physical demands of these environments.

Our experienced team of professionals are trained in the unique needs of the healthcare market and draws from the industry's largest selection of wallcovering and design solutions to meet your every need.

WALLCOVERING vs. PAINT

Performance wallcoverings provide exceptional aesthetics and durability, while incorporating the ideal surface for cleaning and disinfecting in ways a painted surface cannot.

For a surface to be properly disinfected, while meeting CDC guidelines, approved hospital grade disinfectant sprays must be allowed a dwell time to be effective. Performance wallcoverings allow for this dwell time to be achieved without negatively impacting the aesthetics or performance of the wallcovering. Painted surfaces are often porous and will visibly streak.

Over it's lifetime, performance wallcoverings are a more cost effective interior finish:

  • Longer life cycle than paint; average of 7-10 years
  • Little or no maintenance compared to cost of painting every few years
  • Durable, protects the wall from average wear and tear
  • Can withstand hospital grade disinfectants without any visual change
  • Non-porous construction allows proper dwell time, providing time for disinfectants to be effective

  • Paint costs approximately $0.50 per sq ft for material and install, repainting every 3 years
  • Wallcovering costs approximately $1.25 per sq ft for material and install with an expected life of 7-10 years
