Dayex Care Home Refurbishment Solution
Dayex were approached to provide a full cycle turn-key service. Dayex worked closely with the key stake holders from Precious Homes Ltd and their external consultant, IM consulting, to develop a series of interior design solutions. These incorporated multiple colour schemes and a variety of themes. Dayex provided multiple electronic mood boards throughout the care home refurbishment project to enable greater communications and speedy decision making.
The care home refurbishment project required several bedroom schemes to be designed. These needed to reflect both premium and standard levels of room. The bedroom furniture consisted of a combination of both stock and bespoke options and catered for the varying needs of the residents. These considerations included incorporating elements of dementia furniture best practice such as, high contrasting furniture materials, brightly coloured upholstery and dementia friendly fabric options for the soft furnishings.
Communal areas included several day rooms each offering a unique theme, 2 large dining rooms with bespoke dining chair options and a cinema area.
Dayex provided specialist care home dining chairs for the project. Constructed from solid beech, the chairs had small wheels integrated into the front legs. This is an especially important feature of the dining areas as they increased manoeuvrability for residents and care staff without detracting in style.
Dayex also consulted on the small details that make a care home environment unique and provided specialist artwork throughout the home.
Dayex were able to use their delivery team to deliver the project on time with a room placement and installation service.
“Dayex were involved from day 1 and helped us to choose a range of fine furnishings for this lovely prestigious home. We have had excellent feedback from our new residents, their families and also visiting professionals about the colours, the practicality of the furnishings and the qualities. We will definitely be using them again and would recommend them wholeheartedly.” - IM Consulting.
