Sensory At Home
Although sensory rooms are often used in public spaces to make them more accessible, it can be just as useful to have sensory equipment for the home. Having a space that’s sensory at home provides a safe place for users to be entirely themselves and engage in sensory play, development and learning.
Creating a Sensory Space at Home
There are many ways to create a sensory space at home. If you have a spare room that you would like to transform into a sensory room, consider the Glinda – this package is designed to fit perfectly into a home setting. Alternatively, you can design your own space for your needs or the needs of its primary user, whether for calming reasons or to work on promoting fine motor skills.
Much of our ‘Sensory at Home’ range is designed to be smaller or more portable than the products used commercially, meaning they can fit into smaller spaces and even be stored if the space requires multipurpose use.
Sensory Equipment for Home
Creating a space for sensory play at home doesn’t necessarily mean dedicating an entire room. You can use individual sensory products to add a sensory element to any room, or have a ‘sensory corner’ that provides a comfortable retreat when needed.
For example, if you’d like to create a dark room experience on a smaller scale, why not try a blackout pop-up tent? They’re designed to keep the light out and are great for getting the most out of sensory products with UV lighting or helping calm a user experiencing sensory overload.
We also offer furniture solutions that double up as sensory equipment for homes. Our sensory waterbed is supportive for those with joint or back pain and has a heated element to promote blood flow to help those with circulatory or muscular disabilities. We also have both the Lydia Soft Sofa and Pinkham Soft Chair to bring an element of soft play to day-to-day life, and the LED Fibre Optic Bedside Cabinet can help create a relaxing atmosphere before bed.
At Experia, we offer a free room design service, ideal for sensory at home fun and development, as well as pre-made room packages and individual sensory equipment. We also have a range of sensory bedroom and bathroom packages for adding a new sensory level to existing rooms.
