When furnishing your care home, it is essential to strike a balance between comfort, style, and durability. Investing in quality furniture will ensure that your residents receive the support they need, both physically and mentally. It is also important to remember that contract furniture must comply to Crib 5 fire regulations, so ensure that you use a trusted supplier.
Choosing the right care home beds is incredibly important to offer your residents the best comfort. Your residents may include vulnerable people, such as those suffering from mental health conditions. Therefore, it is essential that the beds in your care home provide a safe space where residents can relax. Divans and heavy-duty contract beds are perfect for residential care home environments. Divan beds are cost-efficient and are also suitable for use with residents with challenging behaviours. Mesh-based metal beds are strong and robust, allowing plenty of storage room underneath the bed.
A comfortable mattress is an essential companion to your care home bed. A heavy-duty mattress will provide the best comfort for all body types, including heavier individuals. These mattresses offer the best support for the spine, meaning that your residents will have the best night’s sleep possible.

Your care home needs seating options for use both within residents' rooms and in communal areas. You may need to consider purchasing a range of chairs, such as those for users with challenging behaviours, or for bariatric solutions. Leather lounge chairs and sofas offer comfort and are very easy to clean. Wooden seating is a durable option and can be upholstered with fabric to create a more homely feel.

Tables and cabinets are also essential items of furniture for your care home. An over bed table with wheels is an excellent choice, especially for use with residents who may be bed-bound. Bedside cabinets are useful to ensure that your residents have suitable storage space, as well as a surface near their bed. Look for specialist furniture with rounded edges to avoid injury. A cabinet with multiple drawers can allow residents to organise their belongings more efficiently.
