Planning a Sensory Room for the Home?
The Expert Team at Sensorykraft can help you to create a safe sensory haven within the comfort of the home environment. We can transform any space into a bespoke sensory room which has been expertly designed to meet the individual needs of the user. Whether you are looking for a sensory solution which can be enjoyed passively or interactively, our team have a wealth of knowledge to help advise you on the right sensory equipment to best meet your project requirements.
Our Sensory Specialists are on-hand to discuss sensory ideas and advise you about key considerations bespoke to your project. We can advise on all aspects, including room configuration, sensory equipment, accessibility, user safety, user controls, and individual user sensory needs.

Sensory music therapy induces release of calming hormones, promoting deescalation
Equipment example: Bluetooth audio system
Sensory tactile stimulation recognised by therapists to have very calming effects - particularly beneficial for sensory seeking users
Effective stimulation of the body’s proprioceptive senses
Enhance sensory experience when syncing tactile vibration and audio equipment
Equipment examples: Vibration plates, fibre optics, starlight carpets
Our Raised Plinth Modular System is a combination of raised plinth platforms and wall padding. Our wipe-clean vinyl is available in a range of colours. The system provides a safe and comfortable place for the user to enjoy. The modular units can be customised with a range of different sensory equipment options. Whether your sensory space is being designed to be enjoyed as a passive or interactive sensory experience, the equipment can be selected to meet your specific project requirements and the sensory needs of the user.
Equipment examples: light tube, bubble tube, Bluetooth vibration sound system, fibre optics, mirrors, starlight carpet.
Your Raised Plinth Modular System can be designed to include an in-built lockable storage cupboard (see image to right).
This is an ideal feature if your project requires:
- Easy access to music amplifier
- Extra storage space for sensory equipment
- Equipment that needs to be kept out of reach of user
Alternatively, an external padded storage cupboard may be more suitable for your project (see image above).
User accessibility is a key consideration when designing your bespoke sensory project. Our expert team will be on-hand throughout the planning process to advise you about key considerations including:
- Room configuration
- Safe wheelchair access
- Mobile or ceiling track hoist use
- Design which promotes safe manual handling practice
Equipment choice is a key consideration when designing your sensory project- we can incorporate equipment protection into the plan.
Our expert team can advise you on equipment adaptations which can maximise protection of equipment within the sensory space, such as robust casing for sensory projectors. The robust design can withstand physical force, wear and tear.
This is an ideal solution where the sensory space is to be used by a user with behavioural problems. Promotes equipment safety and also safeguards the user from harm.
Our Sensory Rooms have been expertly designed to ensure that they provide a sensory space which requires low maintenance:
All equipment is easy to wipe-clean, promoting hygiene. All vinyl padding is water resistant and hard wearing and can withstand physical force, wear and tear.
Sensory equipment features long-life low voltage LEDs- no requirement to stock and replace expensive bulbs.
Light tubes offer a maintenance-free solution compared to bubble tubes which require regular cleaning. If a bubble tube is preferred, cleaning kits can be provided.
Our equipment is configured to be 'ready to use' - no preparation required prior to room use.
Get the most out of your Home Sensory Room
To help you get the most out of your sensory room, and ensure that you maximise all of its sensory benefits, it is important that your project plan doesn't overlook some important considerations:
Sensory goals- what are the sensory needs of the intended user(s) that the sensory room aims to meet?
Design goals- how can you configure the sensory room to make the most out of the space and equipment available?
Project goals- how can you get the most out of your cost budget and project time frames?
Let us provide the sensory solutions to your questions...
