Senior Living Furniture Designed with Home Comforts in Mind
Use Senior Living Furniture that is Ergonomically Designed
Believe it or not modern Senior Living design for furniture can be both stylish and serve the needs of older residents. Make sure to select senior living furniture with some of the following features:
• Weight should be balanced correctly to prevent tipping, but not too heavy to move
• Designed to help residents get in and out of chairs independently
• Uses materials and construction that make it easier for staff to clean spills and crumbs
• Uses hand grips to help reposition a resident when at the table
• Built with durable materials to prevent dings and scuffs from wheelchairs and walkers
Senior living interior design that takes into account furniture that follows this plan will both maintain the integrity of the furniture and also give a great first impression when family members of potential residents are touring the community.
Multi-Purpose By Design
The Senior Living Social Bench
When researching Senior Living design, inside or out, there is nothing better than a bench. People can sit together and enjoy the outdoors. Seniors are encouraged to leave their rooms when benches are placed in hallways providing welcome rest stops to dining or other common areas. Kwalu offers stunning bench seating for every taste with and without backs.
Another modern assisted living decorating idea is the stately and contemporary Antillo Bench, with its classic legs and wingback style sides, delivers a touch of modern glamour to any space. Available in four widths, the crisscrossed under frame and piping are standard design features that denote high style.
The Tindari Bench is available with or without a back for maximum versatility. From the double cushions, arms and a high full upholstered back to the attached bolstered pillows, the comfort level of this bench is all encompassing.
Senior Living design ideas such as furniture benches are not confined to inside. The Arezzo Bench with or without a seat cushion is perfectly placed along walking paths for places to pause, on patios, decks, lanais and sunrooms.
