Care Home Lounge Furniture & Design

When you’re considering the purchase of new
Care Home Lounge Furniture, a great deal of thought should go behind your decision. After all, lounge furniture is an important element for creating a homely, safe atmosphere for your care home’s elderly residents. This is because the living room of your facility is one of the main communal and activity areas, so the right furnishings can greatly improve Emotional Wellbeing


With this in mind, here’s our guide to everything from products to style options for your care home’s lounge area!


Key design features

Let’s start with the basics: what do your elderly residents what out of their lounge room? We mentioned a positive, friendly atmosphere above, but other features of a care home living space that your furniture and design options should aim to support are:

  • Comfort – Lounge furniture includes Sofas and Armchairs as well as a variety of Soft Furnishings, so seating and other décor are required to create a space that’s, above all else, comfortable.

  • Accessibility – Care Home facilities need to ensure that their communal spaces are accessible for all elderly residents, including those that are less mobile or those in wheelchairs.

  • Safety – This is essential for facilities providing more specific care such as Dementia Care, but all lounge spaces need to be designed to minimise barriers to daily life.


Layout options

Care home lounge furniture can be utilised in a variety of effective layout options to facilitate these aforementioned design features. Small clustered layouts can be created with your furniture in order to provide different areas for elderly residents which still maintain communal spaces for Care Home Activities. Clusters of furniture can also use a range of seating options, tablespaces and aesthetics, which can create a flexible layout and ensure every care resident feels at home in their facility’s lounge room.
