Designing for Dementia

Image title

Dementia friendly colour palette

Dulux Trade has developed evidence-based design principles to help pro-decorators create spaces that prioritise the wellbeing of people living with dementia – like care homes, for example.

Colour & contrast

Walls, floors and doors should be defined and have contrast between them. The recommendation is a minimum of 30 points of light reflectance Value (LRV). This helps occupants feel more confident and move around independently within the space.
