How Can a Sensory Room Help You Prioritize Comfort

A sensory room, often called a sensory space or multi-sensory room, is a specially designed therapeutic space with tools to help regulate sensory input. 

Creating one in a home environment can offer many benefits, especially for individuals with sensory processing disorders, autism, ADHD, anxiety, or other special needs. However, putting a sensory room or space together from scratch can be cumbersome without help from an expert who can help you pick and choose the perfect sensory options within your budget and needs.

Below, we’ll explore the details behind a home sensory room, the key reasons to consider setting one up, and how Stacy’s Sensory Solutions can help you make your living or working space a sensory haven.

What is a Sensory Room? 

Although every home should be pleasing to the senses, the truth is that most environments are far from pleasant to those living with sensory sensitivities. Many homeowners and organizations like foster care have implemented sensory rooms or spaces as calming centers designed to control and regulate sensory stimuli. 

These rooms cater to a sensory diet with various equipment and tools that provide different soothing sensory experiences through sight, sound, touch, smell, and movement. 

Common elements in a designed sensory space include weighted blankets, fiber optic lamps, fidget toys, textured objects, tactile walls, white noise machines, rocking chairs, crash pads, and more!

The goal of designing a personal sensory space is to tailor it to specific individual needs and control the sensory input the target audience receives. This allows for self-regulating and providing physical, mental, and emotional benefits.

Sensory Rooms Provide a Calming Retreat 

A major benefit of a home sensory room is providing a dedicated calming space for sensory regulation and relaxation. The controlled sensory environment helps induce a regulated state for both the mind and body. This makes it effective for relaxation, lowering stress, and managing anxiety or overwhelming sensations. 

Having access to a quiet retreat space, personalized with an individual’s preferred sensory tools, colors, music, and objects, makes the sensory room an optimal environment to retreat to when feeling overwhelmed. It also gives them an important sense of ownership and control over their surroundings, which is something we believe everyone deserves.

Lauren Veatch, Family and Community Services Manager for Resource Center described her success in our sensory room creative services.

“We have absolutely loved our Sensory Space that Stacy and her team helped set up for us. The youth in our space are able to choose different sensory items that make them feel safer and more comfortable in our space. We also worked with Stacy to help make a room space for youth to have a quiet area to go and calm down or get away from things that could be triggering. We always recommend Stacy’s Sensory Solutions to everyone who walks into our space as the go-to spot for sensory items and custom items to make folks feel as safe and comfortable as possible.”

Encourages Sensory Stimulating Activities

A home sensory room allows engaging in stimulating movement and sensory activities, which provide organizing sensory input to the brain and body. Common equipment like trampolines, textured objects, balance boards, or swings encourages beneficial vestibular, proprioceptive, and tactile input.

Facilitates Therapy and Learning

Customized sensory spaces offer an ideal setup for focused sensory therapy, learning activities, or one-on-one caregiver interactions. This is why Stacy’s Sensory Solutions team specializes in helping libraries and schools create sensory zones for students and guests.

Removing distractions makes it easier for occupational therapists and educators to engage individuals in beneficial therapeutic exercises and build cognitive, social, or behavioral skills.

School sensory rooms are often used for individual or small group instruction and learning games to build academic and developmental skills in a calming space. 

The same concept can be applied at home by using the sensory room for focused skill-building.

Promotes Self-Expression & Creativity 

Sensory rooms allow individuals to engage in sensory experiences as creative outlets for self-expression. Tools like musical equipment, tactile art projects, light displays, and audiovisual technologies can help people of all ages express thoughts and emotions.

Sand and water tables, kinetic sand, and other tactile materials allow engaging in sensory play to reduce stress. For artistic children, the sensory space provides an opportunity to incorporate sensory materials into creative projects and hobbies in a constructive, focused manner.

Angela Wilson, a representative from Weatherford Elementary School, described the success their Zen Zone has given their students when they need a place to express themselves.

“Our Zen Zone has been such an asset to our campus. It’s a calming area our students can utilize when they feel those BIG emotions,” Wilson said.

“It’s filled with sensory tools the kids can choose from to help regulate their feelings. We offer a variety of tools that range from touch, smell, and sound. Our students enjoy the peace and tranquility the Zen Zone offers.

How Does Stacy’s Sensory Solutions Help Customize Space to Specific Needs?

Every person may respond to sensory input differently, so creating an environment with their ideal tools and stimuli is beneficial. 

At Stacy’s Sensory Solutions, we offer custom room designs. We currently offer both local and out-of-area sensory room and space design. 

We make getting started easy and simplify finding the tools and products you need for your sensory diet. After reaching out to us, our founder, Stacy, goes on-site to view the actual room for our local clients. If the client is out of the area, they can send a video of the space along with details about their sensory needs.

From there, Stacy will give a free 15-minute consultation where she begins making the best suggestions possible.

While there is a fee for further consultation beyond the first 15 minutes, clients can rest assured the money paid all goes back into the product purchased for the sensory station.

Our goal is to help you think about different ways to cover all of the sensory input a child or adult needs. We fulfill the needs of your sensory diet with tools that meet all seven areas of sensory input.

We work hand-in-hand with families, schools, libraries, and community organizations to help guide people on what they need in the short and long term. Our goal is to help you avoid financial pitfalls and only purchase necessary and durable products for a well-designed sensory room.

Maintaining the Calm: The Benefits of Finding the Perfect Weighted Blanket

There really isn’t any sense of calm compared to cuddling up with your favorite blanket after a stressful day of work or school. While the quilt your Granny stitched may bring a twinge of nostalgia, a weighted blanket can give your body a deep pressure touch that produces the serotonin and melatonin you need to promote calm and sleep.

If you’ve never experienced the relief of a weighted blanket, let’s take a look at the benefits of cuddling under a weighted cloth that provides the ultimate physical and mental comfort for sleeping off a long, hard day.

How Do Weighted Blankets Work?

Weighted blankets work based on the principles of deep touch pressure therapy, also known as deep pressure stimulation.

These blankets are designed to provide gentle, evenly distributed pressure across the body, mimicking the sensation of being hugged or held.

The inner layer of your weighted blanket is filled with materials such as glass beads or plastic pellets, which add the desired weight. When an individual wraps themselves in a weighted blanket, the pressure exerted on the body stimulates the release of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, eventually leading to feelings of relaxation, well-being, and the ability to get a good night’s sleep.

What Are The Benefits of Weighted Blankets?

Over the last few years, the popularity of weighted blankets has seemingly gone through the roof. Here are some of the biggest reasons so many people are swapping out the standard for these gentle stress relievers.

Weighted Blankets Can Reduce Anxiety and Stress

Most of us love a great big hug. The deep touch pressure our bodies experience has a direct impact on the parasympathetic nervous system.

This bodily system releases dopamine, encourages relaxation, and decreases the cortisol in our lives that lead to excess stress that can easily damper our mood.

Weighted blankets provide a gentle pressure that can help you self-soothe and gradually refocus the mind into a state that puts anxiety and panic in the rearview mirror.

Sleep Quality Improves

Many people find that sleeping with a weighted blanket helps improve their overall sleep quality and duration.

The gentle, enveloping pressure of the blanket’s weight presses down on the body, creating a calming, cocooning sensation. Not only can the added weight help prevent tossing and turning, which keeps you restless, but it helps lower the heart rate and blood pressure to prepare the body for rest.

The deep-pressure touch from weighted blankets increases serotonin production and gives your body more of the neurotransmitter that helps regulate sleep cycles.

Weighted blankets can help users fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and spend more time in REM and deep sleep cycles. Let us help you and your loved ones wake up feeling well-rested, focused, and ready to take on the day!

They Comfort People With Sensory Processing Disorders

People with sensory processing disorders like ADHD and autism can benefit from deep-pressure touch from weighted blankets.

The pressure from a blanket can create a calming sensation that helps the nervous system regulate, providing a soothing feeling of security.

For people who experience sensory overload, the weighted blanket helps mute the influx of sensory stimuli, allowing them to relax their muscles and mind.

This calming effect helps improve focus while reducing anxious behaviors and restless movement.

How Do You Choose the Right Weighted Blanket

Selecting a weighted blanket for premier comfort goes beyond general visual appeal. After all, too light a blanket won’t produce enough pressure, while a blanket that’s too heavy can feel restrictive and be the antithesis of what weighted blankets are all about.

When buying a weighted blanket, there are three main things to consider: the weight, the size, and the fabric choice.

When deciding on the weight, a good place to start  is to look at blankets around 10 percent of body weight. Many people end up preferring heavier or lighter blankets than this though–it’s strongly based on personal sensory preference.

In order to ensure the most effective size, the best option is to buy one that covers you from shoulders to toes and will drape down on either side of you. You’ll want entire body coverage so that the weight will be focused on you and not the bed, so sticking with these parameters will help you make the right choice for better sleep and relaxation.

Choosing the right fabric will depend on your temperature comfort level. If you want a warmer blanket, then you will want to choose a blanket made of a thicker fabric such as Minky; if you want a cooler blanket then you will need a lighter fabric such as cotton.

Keep Calm With Stacy’s Sensory Solutions

At Stacy’s Sensory Solutions, we’re dedicated to promoting the benefits of weighted blankets for everyone, from young children to seniors.

Our custom weighted blankets let you choose your fabric, weight, and blanket size, as well as give you the option between a blanket with a removable or sewn-in cover. Our custom covers and sewn-in custom blankets are made in-house by our own seamstresses at our shop in Plano, Texas.

We love the fact that our products create a natural sensation of comfort and calming that lets you sleep better, remain focused, and push back anxious or stressful feelings.
