Fairhaven Nursing Home, Bournemouth
I was asked to decorate a room within the nursing home which could be used by either family members visiting a resident, or people attending the home for respite care.
For a homely, non-clinical feel, I chose an elegant Sanderson wallpaper and smart white furniture for storage. To comply with regulations within a healthcare environment, a JHS Hospi-Loop 100% Polypropylene carpet was laid which could be bleached or scrubbed if required. The chair and footstool were selected from Morgan Contract Furniture’s Healthcare range and upholstered with an Edmund Bell fire retardant fabric. Waterproof, resistant to MRSA and tested to 100,000 rubs, this upholstery is a practical choice for an environment where furniture regularly needs to be cleaned and scrubbed.
The en-suite bathroom was also comfortably refitted with a new suite and contemporary tiling, with the addition of a non-slip Altro floor and appropriate grab rails to ensure a safe environment.
