Flooring Design Solutions in the Age of COVID-19
Interior design plays a fundamental role not only in making teaching spaces functional, but also in creating a calm and calming environment for students and faculty. Aesthetics, from the selection of colors to the layout, are crucial in helping schools emerge from the pandemic as safe spaces that promote emotional and psychological well-being.
Here to shed some light on the subject are David Dembowitz, Senior Vice President for Mohawk Group; Royce Epstein, Director of A&D Design for The Mohawk Group; and Rebekah Matheny, associate professor of interior design in the design department at Ohio State University.
