We think that few things are more satisfying than looking at before and after photos, don't you agree?
BABY SOFT CORNER
With quite a few babies in the Refuge, we were tasked to create a soft floor area where babies could be put down safely. We added radiator covers as well as a Baby Bouncer so multiple babies could be in the space at one time, plus there is a nap-time opportunity (always a high priority if you ask us!). Finally, we added a Canopy and Bean Bag to create a sensory tent using minimal floor space, whilst creating a cosy snug.
A special thanks to Jake our hands-on help from The Essex Handyman who helped bring our vision to life!
Creative CornerIn the other part of the Playroom, we created a pre-school style set up for toddlers and young children to learn and create. We created designated spaces for toys utilising Ikea Trofast Storage Cabinets as well as our super handy stackable Crates, and softened the look with Rattan Baskets for soft toys and dressing up costumes.
ARTS & CRAFTS CUPBOARD
We did an overhaul of the Cupboard filling it with complementary coloured crates to organise Crafts, Stickers and Paints as well as boxed toys such as Puzzles and Games.
THE BIG REVEAL
Just like an episode of "Changing Rooms" we held out until the end of the day to give the Refuge staff a grand reveal! The pictures speak for themselves, they were quite literally lost for words. The very next day, the families resident at the Refuge played in the Playroom for hours, for the very first time since Lockdown lifted.
