How to Sympathetically Incorporate the Latest Design Trends into your care home
Most of us must agree that the environment that we live in plays an important role in how we feel about ourselves and go about our daily lives. So it doesn’t take a giant leap of the imagination to understand the positive role that an uplifting and inviting environment can play in the daily lives of the elderly or those with higher care needs, when they are living in a residential care home.
Our intention here is not to speak about the health and safety side of care home furnishings, as these we know are all likely well-rehearsed in your heads but more to bring to you some enlightening ideas that can inspire you when making choices. Developing your own ‘unique style’ in furnishings is important, because after all that what’s makes it a ‘home’ isn’t it? It shows that as an organization you ‘care’ enough to have taken the time to provide something unique and that you offer a point of difference to your clients. This may help steer potential customers away from choosing one of your competitors based purely on price point, but instead to focus on the lifestyle and quality of care they are going to receive.
There are three major interior design movements that have taken off in other sectors that we feel would be equally valid for a care home situation...
The mid-century era produced a furniture style that comprised of simple designs, elegance and functionality.
Modern versions of this style comprise of light weight pieces that are easy to interact with. The colour palette is a collection of warm and welcoming oranges, browns, golds and soft greens. Window treatments and wallpapers have strong geometric patterns harking back
to the 50s and 60s - a familiar era for many care home residents.
Maximalism has made a resurgence just lately in the hospitality industry. The maximalist interior relies heavily on bold, mismatched prints, powerful bright colours, contrasting textures and an eccentric mix of accessories. Furniture
styles, window treatments, flooring and artwork vary in style and pay homage to many different periods. The overall look is grand and exciting, full of quirky surprises and is supposed to reflect the eclectic nature of a real home. Many
patterns and designs incorporated in this style will be familiar to residents, helping maintain psychological comfort and improving recall and memories.
Along with the nostalgia, there is a fresh energy and liveliness that is both uplifting and exciting.
3-Modern Scandi Design
The appeal of Scandinavian interior never really goes away, probably because the light, bright, white decor lifts the spirits. Monochrome palettes with hints of creams, browns, greys, taupe and tans lend themselves very well to the care home situation… and the overall look is relaxing, calming and clean. Using Nordic minimalism, Scandi furniture has clean lines and good form, flooring is subdued and window treatments are non-fussy. Add some Danish ‘Hygge’ in the form of soft fluffy throws and a little boho with some macramé and you will have created a stylish setting that anyone can call home.
