The elderly man in family is like a treasure, and it is our blessing that there is an elderly man in family. We need to know that older people are getting older and life is bound to get a little hectic. Therefore, when we decorate homes for elderly, we must take into account their vital needs. Today I will share with you some of details that you should pay attention to when decorating a room for elderly.
One. Anti-slip coating
Given uncomfortable legs and feet of elderly, design of a room for elderly should try to avoid a difference in floor levels in order to avoid falling. Floors with water stains, such as bathrooms and sinks, should be covered with non-slip mats or choose non-slip floor tiles. Grab bars should be installed on both sides of tub, toilet and sink if possible.
To design a nursing room, it is best to use wooden furniture, and try to choose corners with rounded corners or fewer ribs and corners. The height of tables and chairs is about a meter. Drawers, if any, should be located close to countertop. In this way, elderly people can be prevented from being hit, and there is no need to bend over when opening the drawer. Furniture paint must be green and environmentally friendly. After finishing, it must remain free for some time until occupancy.
Elderly people usually like silence, so it is mainly necessary to soundproof doors, windows and walls so that they are not affected by outside world. As elderly get older, quality of their sleep is not good. If environment is too noisy, it will affect ability of elderly to fall asleep. Therefore, it is necessary to prevent noise interference and work well on sound insulation.
Older people will have relatively poor eyesight. The lighting in room should not be too dark, but do not use too many bright spotlights. It is best to use a soft light source. The elderly will wake up more at night. It is recommended that switch in bedroom is not too far from bed, or a small night light can be installed.
The room for elderly is mostly decorated in warm colors. Most seniors rooms choose a neutral color system and don't choose a color system that is too cold. A color system that is too cold is too quiet, which will easily make elderly feel lonely. Older people are weak, more prone to colds and more afraid of cold. Therefore, heating equipment and insulation equipment must be in place. Isn't decoration of old man's room so well thought out?
