International Leader in Wallcoverings

Muraspec has agreed a collection of ‘dementia-friendly’ wallcoverings

Share on:

The Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC) at the University of Stirling has agreed a selection of our wallcoverings as ‘dementia-friendly’, on the basis of existing knowledge and research.

 

According to the DSDC, getting design right can make a fundamental difference to the lives of people with dementia – it improves their life experiences and can increase their life expectancy.

 

When designing an interior environment that is dementia-friendly, it is crucial to create contrasts, and to avoid strong and light-reflective patterns. Using darker and brighter colours on feature walls can provide focal points and help achieve contrasts between areas.

 

 Dementia-friendly wallcoverings

 

Our approved ranges provide a unique combination of choice, durability, quality, and sympathetic yet stylish designs to work with. They include our super tough SSG wallcovering, our highly versatile fabric backed vinyl range, the low-cost Murek collection, and narrow width Chateau.

Muraspec are the only contract wallcoverings company to have agreed a range of dementia-friendly wallcoverings.

 

Visit Muraspec on stand G74 at The Care Show from 4 -5 November 2014 at the NEC Birmingham, where our dementia-friendly wallcoverings can be seen in an appropriate setting.
