Textiles and the intimate scale of interiors affect the perception of the space extensively. However, knowledge on how interior textiles can improve the experience of hospital spaces is lacking. Contemporary hospitals are often criticized as being too institutional in their physical appearance, and research suggests that more accommodating hospital interiors are needed. Concerned with this awareness, this paper presents the results from a design-based case study, observing and interviewing patients and staff in a hospital dayroom where different interior textiles were installed. The evaluation of the study indicates that patients experience the atmosphere as more accommodating in the refurbished interior, and patients express that they use the dayroom more often. The interior textiles are described as significant contributors to this improved experience. Based on these findings, the paper discusses the potential benefits of implementing textiles in hospital interior spaces in order to promote patient outcomes.
