Executive SummaryIn the last half of this century, a vast number of books have been written on the topicof color—the psychology of color, color theory, color and the environment, colorand light, and color and culture to name a few. Interestingly, each is filled withindividual studies—not necessarily in healthcare—and many suggest definitive conclusions about the best colors for a range of users and settings, or color preferencesfor boys and girls, different cultures, and so forth.In today’s context of research, however, the methodological rigor of these studiesfalls short of what we have come to expect with the introduction of evidence-baseddesign. An extensive review of color literature carried out in 2004 by Tofle, Schwarz,Yoon, and Max-Royale concluded that there is insufficient evidence to assert that specific colors can evoke a certain mood, nor is there a link that can be made betweenspecific colors and health outcomes.Despite this, many studies describe how colors can influence performance and theexperience of a space. Color can create the illusion of a higher ceiling or a widerroom or facilitate cueing in wayfinding orientation. In the healthcare setting, thereare many functional uses of color. As an example, a color separation between thefloor and the wall in circulation spaces helps those with aging eyes to distinguishbetween different planes and reduce mobility issues. Since hospitals are likely to servean increasing number of aging baby-boomers in coming years, the many functionaluses of color related to aging and health are very relevant.Although rigorous rules for the application of color in healthcare settings will not befound in this paper, there are suggestions for the application of color as well as issuesfor practitioners to consider such as the type of activity that will occur in a space andwhether it requires concentration or social interaction, the age of the occupants, theirmobility, the nature and severity of the illness, and the amount of brightness andcontrast required to perform tasks safely.8 Executive Summary

The Application of Color in Healthcare SettingsMuch of what we think we know about color is anecdotal. The results of many colorstudies that are often quoted have been done in laboratory settings or using small color chips representing basic primary colors. This is very different than the experienceof color on walls in an interior environment. It is difficult to do controlled studies oncolor in real-world settings and even more challenging in clinical environments.This paper’s value is as a reference for architects and designers as it presents what iscurrently understood about color, separating research from experience and anecdote,and it is likely to give many design professionals confidence about the application ofcolor to their projects.The Appendix discusses the cultural implications of color.Executive Summary 9

Research HighlightsThis paper looks at studies of color in a number of differenthealthcare settings—from pediatric to geriatric nursing units—and considers a variety of uses—from signage to wayfinding.Here are some of the key findings from the literature review ofrigorous peer-reviewed studies on color in healthcare settingsduring the past decade.Dittmar (2001) found in a large-scale study using color namesalone (blue, green, red, yellow) highly significant differencesin color preference with advancing age; increased age wascorrelated with decreased preference for blue. There was nosignificant gender difference for preferred colors, but a genderdifference in least preferred colors.Park (2009) examined color preferences among pediatricoutpatients, inpatients, and healthy children and found nostatistically significant difference in color preference among thethree groups of children, and, therefore, did not support thehypothesis that pediatric patients would have different colorpreferences than healthy children. However, all preferencecomparisons revealed that white was the least pre
