The dining area

During meals, all the senses can be stimulated. Here, aesthetics, smells, tactile materials and adapted acoustic levels come together to enhance meal-time tranquillity and flavours. The feeling of being home in your own kitchen is strong and the dining area is the heart of the facility. Routines and furnishings are adapted to the individual and everyone can feel safe, respected and comfortable. Supportive interior design saves the staff time and energy, helps the residents maintain a feeling of independence and gets relatives involved. Here, there is always room, regardless of size and limited functionality.

"A poorly planned dining area can feel unsafe, anti-social, noisy, exclusive and discriminating as well as be a drain on resources. Well-considered interiors and furnishings can change such a situation and result in an entirely different reality."

Johan Franzén, Kinnarps Next Care® Concept Manager
