Introduction: Environment color design includes all surfaces and interior furniture from the light and color to the feature and internal atmosphere, aesthetics and efficiency. Color design can play a role in the treatment procedure and efficiency. Considering that there is not a general and simple basis for environment color design, this essay states some principles to help complete color design in order to address most queries. If environment color design is produced carefully and through plans, it can develop the sense of health in medical facilities where patients are hospitalized for long terms. To get reasonable conditions in hospitals, we need to benefit from all current knowledge. Conclusion: Color design has a direct effect on people's spirits. Bright, subtle, and soft colors should be used and somber and saturated colors should be avoided. It seems necessary to use the combination of color with appropriate lights for all hospital's clients to orient themselves and find directions. This is especially important in the elderly patients who are a major part of hospital population and are hospitalized for long-term periods. The disabled and those with mental problems feel extremely in danger when surrounded within a closed space with strong colors, like orange and red. For children and teenagers, good lighting and color design can make a less organization-like and more pleasant and interesting place. For hospital staffs, proper color design and lighting can create a suitable environment to work effectively with delighted Spirit.
