These Kid-Inspired Hospital Interiors are Simply Awesome

 

Hospitals can be an intimidating place, especially for children. The white sterile walls and big noisy machines can scare some kids and it’s possible they become uncomfortable and uncooperative. Of course a kind and caring health care professional can overcome these obstacles; but adding a little colour, fun and awe to the typically drab interiors can do a lot to help elevate one’s mindset.

A recent post on Reddit showed a picture of the Texas Children’s Hospital’s CT Scanner below. It was fun, playful and uplifting; a total mood enhancer to an uncomfortable situation for many. That sent the Sifter on a mission to find more examples of uplifting interiors. Enjoy!
