Two New Care Homes in Bangor, Co. Down & Box, Wiltshire, England
Hughes furniture were offered contracts by two separate construction companies to supply some 130 bedrooms of specialised and bespoke bedroom furniture to two new Care Homes being built for Maria Malliband Homes, one in Northern Ireland and one in England.
Maria Malliband had already got a bedroom furniture specification from previous “new builds” and Hughes Furniture was tasked with introducing some new design features, not previously used in Care Homes.
Half of the bedrooms were furnished with “scooped-out” drawer fronts and “next day’s clothes hanging” wardrobes for Dementia patients. The other 50% of rooms were in a similar design with full fascias.
The wardrobes and desks were fitted to the wall and featured skirting board cut-outs for a clean edge.
The main feature in each bedroom was a very large fully-fitted headboard with a padded centre to match the curtains and with cut-outs for switches and light fittings. Each side of the bed there was a locker with a locking drawer and a fridge unit with vents.
Again, each bedroom was fitted out by Hughes Furniture’s Fitting Team to a very high standard, delivered on time and achieving a fabulous hotel-type bedroom for the residents.
Good co-operation between our Project Manager, the Interior Designer in London and the construction company to deliver the right result for everybody concerned.
