Sensory Activity – Dark Den Sensory Corner in Small Homes

It’s impossible to set up dark dens and spaces in small apartments and flats where all floor space is at a premium.

But it’s not impossible to create something visually stimulating or calming. You do need a dark corner. We set a Sensory Corner up at the end of a corridor where outdoor light could be blocked off by doors.

This simple set up uses a large bean bag with a soft furry throw next to a large colour change stool. Various battery operated fairy lights are draped over to complete the look.

The expensive staple equipment in this set up is the colour change furniture. This stool currently retails at around £65, which is a significant drop in price from the £100 we paid four years ago. It’s definitely worth the investment. It’s a great piece of equipment that can be used in many different ways.
