A well considered sensory room will have any number of specially selected products to illicit reactions, so it’s important to sit down with one of our design experts to understand what’s available and wanted considering the rooms objectives as well as the challenges and supports needed for the rooms users.
It’s also important to consider the location in advance and choose an accessible location, without windows so you can control the lighting artificially, in an area that’s as far away from noise as possible. A well designed Sensory Room can cost anywhere between €10,000 – €30,000 depending on the size of the room, area that’s padded, quantity of products and level of technology.
