Sensory rooms can be any size, area and cater for a variety of needs. The most popular aspect of a sensory area is the bubble tube corner. The bubble tube makes a fantastic centrepiece with its visually engaging bubbles and colour changing lights. They have proven to provide beneficial results for everyone through calming elements, promoting relaxation, reduction in anxiety and stress, provide enjoyment, mood lifting and also offers tactile input from the vibrations. They are especially valuable for people who may have conditions such as Autism, ADHA, Mental Health, Dementia and Cognitive Disabilities. Combined with mirrors in a corner the tubes become a focal point providing a visually engaging feature enhanced by the mirror reflections.

Sensory for Soft Play Centres
We have recognised the importance of integrating sensory areas into soft play centres. The need for families to be able to take all of their children out together is vital for family life. By adding a quieter sensory space/room, siblings with disabilities or additional needs can use interactive and calming equipment while the others make use of the loud soft play.
We pass all of our expertise onto our clients when designing spaces even suggestions of use. Centres can run special sessions to cater for children and adults with additional needs to have fun, explore the soft play with down lights, calming music, less people and to release energy in a safe space.
