Before jumping in, have a read of these practical tips to get the most out of a small space and seek the advice of a medical fit out specialist.  

Light it up

Quite simply, the more light you have, the better. Big windows allowing for natural light, combined with sheer window furnishings will open your space and bring a warm vibe to the environment.

A double layer blind system is a great idea to encourage both a level of privacy without blocking out any of the light from the windows.

You can also opt for warmer lights in your waiting room, rather than traditional fluorescent fixtures.

Choosing colours

The right colour for a room can really flatter it, charge it with energy and even give the impression of a different sized space. Dark paint has the tendency to close the walls in, but shades of white – and even lighter grey, neutrals and blue hues – can really push those walls apart.

The ground beneath you

Once you’ve picked a great, expansive colour for your smaller space, choose the perfect floor to really bring your medical clinic to life. Choosing a similarly light and cool colour will also have the effect of opening the area and pushing the walls out. Neutral coloured floors will put focus on the furnishings, which can also create the effect of a bigger space.

If you’re opting for timber floors, lay the planks vertically to create a lengthening effect on the room.


The golden rule for any small space? Avoid clutter and stick to clean minimalist pieces. Using furniture with fine lines will also detract from the impression of bulk, attracting the eyes across the expanse of the room. Utilise any area for wall storage to reduce the clutter from paperwork and equipment.

While these tips are simple, they are easy ways to open up your area without the need for a full renovation. Whatever your needs may be, chat to a medical clinic fit out specialist to discover how you can take your space to the next level.
