When you are considering the needs of someone with autism, selecting the most suitable furniture can be one of the most important decisions that you make. The best furniture can help people with autism, and other mental health conditions, feel more at ease in their surroundings. And as with any investment in your home, you will want to ensure you receive value.
In this blog, we take a look at the Extreme Opal Sofa and explain why it could be the best option for autistic people.
Sometimes people with mental health conditions can wear down furniture faster. The Extreme Opal Sofa is recognised as one of the sturdiest on the market. Thanks to its tough design, it is safeguarded against the damage which can come with wear and tear, as well as more serious incidents such as collapse. This is a sofa which can offer much-needed resistance to frequent use.
Choice of sizes
You certainly aren't restricted by the Extreme Opal Sofa's size. Properties come in all shapes and sizes, and so does the Extreme Opal Sofa. You can opt for a two-seater, 2.5 seater, 3 seater or if you are looking for an armchair, there is that option too. Not only does this allow you to choose the best design for the autistic person and other members of your household, but it also lets you fit the sofa to the layout of the room.
Staples in sofa design can pose a risk to people with autism, as they might potentially harm themselves. On some sofas, staples can be seen around the back and at the bottom. But with the Extreme Opal Sofa, there are no staples visible, making the sofa safer for use by those with autism.
All the options
In some cases, you might want to make some changes to your sofa, particularly if the person with autism you are caring for may have a habit of physically reacting to things. With the Extreme Opal Sofa, you have the option of adding additional weighting to reinforce your sofa further. This can help to protect the autistic person and those around them.
