Interior design is a field which explores a great deal about art, culture, architecture, color, environment, and more. Modern interior design often covers the harmony between the East and West, as well as the use of modern technology in the design of modern living spaces and working places. The field of interior design is one where you have the opportunity to take a topic and add to the existing literature, to answer a question or to solve a problem.
If you need a list of interior design thesis topics, review the list below:
- How Television Promotes Amateurs
- The Dying Industry of Interior Design
- How to Become a Modern Interior Designer
- The Use of Color Theory
- The Use of Synthesized Materials
- Modern Graphic Design
- Layouts for Advertising
- Emotional Perception of Font
- Font Preference for Reading
- Persuasive Perception of Font
- E-commerce and Textiles
- Customer-Focused Manufacturing
- Competition in the Apparel Industry
- Modern Pattern Design
- Cyclical Nature of Color
- Tufted Carpet Technology
- Interior Architectural Redevelopment
- Redesigning Modern Phones
- Adaptive Re-Use of Industrial and Historic Buildings
- Ambient Intelligence
When you set out to pick a topic from this list, or any other list, you should be aware of the following: coming up with a brand new idea, never before heard of is nearly impossible. But you can still combine existing ideas in a new way. Find out if someone else has already completed something relating to the topic you have selected. See if you can add a new spin to it or provide an idea which is not published anywhere else. This can be in the form of a new methodology. An existing problem may have been studied before but not with the methodology you are proposing. You might want to identify a problem or question which has yet to be solved as well. This could be a specific group, class of materials, or a technique. Finally, you might consider searching for a specific outcome which has not been achieved by anyone else. Remember that the idea you end up using for your thesis must be something you have the expertise and resources to explore.
As you are reviewing this list, keep in mind that you should search for several possible ideas at first, rather than one perfect idea. Being open to possibilities, no matter how off the wall they might be, will help you to find something that you are passionate about. The idea upon which you settle does not have to be 100% unique. You can consider a variation on an existing theme or find a different approach to an existing problem. This will open up many avenues of exploration that can lead you to the perfect thesis topic.
Remember that a big part of this writing process is the ability to defend the work that you have done later on. Your topic needs to be something which can be easily managed given your location and the resources you have available. Remember that the size of your topic can be a difficult measure to pinpoint. You want to make sure that the topic is manageable but you do not want to be limited while you are conducting research.

Adaptive Repurposing Of Smith Elementary, Kelsey L. Fields
Honors Research Projects
For almost 100 years Smith Elementary School has been an institution of learning and a place of growth for children across the community of Kenmore, including myself. While its closing marks the end of an era it also presents a unique opportunity. Through adaptive reuse, Smith Elementary can have a second life and remain a cornerstone building in the community. The central goal of maintaining the beautiful original architectural details blends with the challenge of making this a functional space where a business can flourish, in the same rooms as hundreds of children have done before. This idea will set ...

Interior Design Program: Faculty Scholarly and Creative Activity
Background Children spend a significant portion of their days in sedentary behavior (SB) and on average fail to engage in adequate physical activity (PA). The school built environment may influence SB and PA, but research is limited. This natural experiment evaluated whether an elementary school designed to promote movement impacted students' school-time SB and PA.
Methods Accelerometers measured SB and PA at pre and post time-points in an intervention group who moved to the new school (n = 21) and in a comparison group experiencing no school environmental change (n = 20). Difference-in-difference (DD) analysis examined SB and PA outcomes in these ...

Shifting School Design To The 21st Century: Challenges With Alternative Learning Environments, Bryan H. Perez2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Shifting School Design To The 21st Century: Challenges With Alternative Learning Environments, Bryan H. Perez
Theses from the Architecture Program
There is a need for major change in our educational system and in particular the design of schools. Our existing school model was defined in the mid- to late-1800s, as a response to the Industrial Revolution, and does not reflect the needs of the next generation of 21st century students. One of the key elements of change in schools is the shift from confined classrooms towards alternative learning environments – spaces that are designed for a specific learning type or activity.
This thesis focuses on secondary education and examines three schools identified as having innovative school designs. While all three schools ...
Exploring The Value Of Interprofessional Collaboration Between Occupational Therapy And Design: A Pilot Survey Study, Amy Wagenfeld, Lori Reynolds, Tamar Amiri2017 Western Michigan University
Exploring The Value Of Interprofessional Collaboration Between Occupational Therapy And Design: A Pilot Survey Study, Amy Wagenfeld, Lori Reynolds, Tamar Amiri
The Open Journal of Occupational Therapy
Background: Consistent with the American Occupational Therapy Association’s Vision 2025, interprofessional partnerships between occupational therapy and designers is necessary to “maximize health, well-being, and quality of life for all people . . . through effective solutions that facilitate participation in everyday living” (2016, para 1). Occupational therapy’s knowledge of the person-environment-occupation fit appears to make us well suited to collaborate with design teams to create environments that facilitate optimal function and promote health and well-being (Ainsworth & de Jonge, 2014).
Method: Two short closed-ended online questionnaires were designed to gain an understanding of designer and occupational therapy practitioner impressions of interprofessional collaborations ...

An Evidence-Based Approach To Designing Low-Income Housing Communities, Kaitlin Ward
Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects
In the field of interior design, functionality and aesthetics are combined to create spaces that are beautiful, but also serve a variety of purposes. Broadly categorized into residential and commercial sectors, interior design considers the health and wellness of users in a space, and strives to improve the standard of living. Quality interior design is often treated as a luxury afforded only to the wealthy, although the field can and should be applied to benefit a wider demographic. Intelligent design and space planning can be used as a tool for community-building, especially among populations often overlooked due to reasons such ...

Task-Based Approach To Define Occupant Behaviour In Agent-Based Modelling, Kelly Jo Kalvelage, Michael C. Dorneich, Ulrike Passe, Caroline C. Krejci
This paper presents a development approach and design of a task-centered agent-based model (ABM) to represent the interactions of occupants with a commercial office building. The model is built with the understanding that occupant behaviour is driven by tasks the occupant performs. A contextual task analysis questionnaire explored occupant perspectives on the interactions between their tasks, their individual behaviour and comfort, and the physical characteristics of their workspace. This task-based information defines five ABM elements that represent occupants, task and workspace environment, task list, occupant actions, and the impact of the occupant-workspace interaction on tasks. An example of an occupant ...
Swivel Seating In Large Lecture Theaters And Its Impact On Student Discussions And Learning, Craig Ogilvie2017 Iowa State University
Swivel Seating In Large Lecture Theaters And Its Impact On Student Discussions And Learning, Craig Ogilvie
Well-designed university buildings and physical environments have a documented positive impact on student participation, engagement, and feelings of support and belonging. These factors are known to improve learning; however, it is hard to document the direct impact architecture has on student learning outcomes. Information on how specific design choices impact student learning would be tremendously beneficial to the development of new projects, and outcome data from prior remodeling projects could be used to inform the myriad choices architects and universities must make for new designs. This paper compares two different designs of remodeled, large lecture-theater designs: one with traditional tiered ...

The Impact Of Examination Room Design On Patient-Centered Outcomes.Pdf, Zahra Zamani, Nicholas Watkins
Contemporary changes in healthcare policy and delivery necessitate healthcare settings that are efficient, patient-centered, and accommodate outpatient care. However, there is a lack of original design research of key spaces within clinics, such as examination rooms, and their impact on patient-centered care. The purpose of this literature review was to identify existing refereed studies that measure the impact of examination room design features on patient-care provider communication, patients’ perceived quality of care, patient satisfaction, patient self-disclosure, care provider work flow, and operational costs. A comprehensive online database search was conducted from Web of Science, Google Scholar, PubMed, and Science Direct ...

We Are What We Dispose : Continuation Of Culture Through Recycling At Rhode Island School Of Design, Xinzhou Jiang
Every year, RISD produces massive amounts of waste, from dining trash to discarded art pieces. Art educational institutions have more complex varieties of garbage compared with other educational institutions, given the variety of media used by each discipline. As an art and design school, RISD takes issues of sustainability seriously, therefore it is natural to address the problem of waste. The current recycling strategy of RISD is mainly based on the waste’s material difference, even though other processing strategies have been developed, like the Second Life Store, which is mostly based on usability; current recycling strategies remain singular and ...
Creative Collisions : A Risd Case Study, Hannah Liongoren2017 Rhode Island School of Design
Creative Collisions : A Risd Case Study, Hannah Liongoren
Creative collisions play an important role in artistic work. These encounters broaden an artist’s perspective, exposing them to new processes, ideas, disciplines, and collaborators. The exact nature of creative collisions is difficult to pin down, as they flourish in an ever-changing mix of social interaction and creative inspiration in a setting of multidisciplinary work. A little-known example of a serendipitous collision between artists occurred between Gustav Klimt and designer Emilie Floge, whose individual medium and style influenced the others’ work, and together they dominated the Viennese Secession movement. A similar creative relationship developed between Charles and Ray Eames who ...

Hill Study : Re-Energize Highly-Programmed Hill Study Space, Di Qiang
Sloping sites present a variety of difficulties to the structures on which they are built: difficulty in access, difficulty in delineating the space, difficulty in reaching specific functional areas. These problems aren’t caused by the sloping site itself; the sloping site is a natural terrain. The problem lies in the contradiction between the natural sloping site and the traditional hillside architectural forms which evolved from flatland architecture. The College Building of the Rhode Island School of Design exemplifies the use of flatland architectural typology on the hillside . During the expansion of Rhode Island School of Design in 1935, RISD ...

Risd Club, Madeleine Devall
Higher arts education is an enormous luxury. If part of the appeal and exclusivity of higher education is grounded in the extravagance of attending private, reputable schools like Rhode Island School of Design, is there a way to extend this exclusive “club” to alumni and visiting artists and designers?
When we join a club, we become part of an organization that is exclusive to people with similar interests. Education is a club; the privilege to be accepted to an exclusive group of people with similar interests allows for access to professional insight, resources, and knowledge. RISD provides privilege where ability ...
Building Community : Network Within Grey Space, Lingfei Liu2017 Rhode Island School of Design
Building Community : Network Within Grey Space, Lingfei Liu
Buildings constitute the city, but at the same time isolate people from the action of the city by delimiting the activities within. Considering the relationship between buildings and public urban areas, is there a missing characteristic which could blur the boundary and create a smooth transition, a grey space gradually mediating between the outside and the inside, exterior and interior? Perhaps a type of connection within the city which contains more flexibility and accessibility would reduce the isolation of people from the activities of their own cities.
Isolation of this type exists on the urban scale, but also affects institutions ...
