We Design Wall-Coverings & Murals for Care Home & Healthcare Projects

Designing wall-coverings and murals for the care home and healthcare environment is an area ATADesigns have been working on for some time.  We provide a bespoke design service that can help you create a wall-covering or mural design to suit your projects.When designing for the care home or healthcare environment, whether it be, for patient care in a hospital, residents in a care home, clinics, hospice, doctors surgeries or the staff that work at these establishments, their needs must come first. There are many different kinds of requirements depending on the type of practice and care involved. It is vital to create a safe and caring environment, including its interiors.  We like to think that our bespoke wall-covering and mural designs play a large part in these kinds of spaces, promoting well-being and positive influence on emotions, leaving patients and residents feeling comfortable, and happy in their environment.

Illustration Design

We have a unique and versatile design style when creating wall-covering and mural designs, depending on the type of project; this could be through a mix of hand-drawings, photographs, or illustrations to finally print digitally.

Murals for corridors, dining rooms etc.

Our clients often asked us to create illustration designs for long corridors.  The illustration could be a street scene with local shops, such as a flower shop, hairdresser or a post office, or simply a pub with a bar for a dining room.

When creating a scene, we like to incorporate places of familiarity in the design to help with memory, especially for people living with dementia.

We have already created illustrations for:  a bus stop, the interior of a flower shop, a post office and street scene.


To give you an idea of what we can do, here are some illustration examples:

About our wallpapers

At Wallsmiths, our designs are printed on contract wall-coverings for the healthcare and care home market. The substrate we mostly use is Fabtex which is a heavyweight fabric with a small amount of PVC on the face for printing, it has a fine smooth cloth texture and is waterproof, comes in 160 cm widths which makes it suitable for printing in one piece, as most care homes corridors have a handrail which splits the wall so that the wallpaper can be installed horizontally in one piece so that there are no seams, we use water-based inks which are cured, by UV light after printing, the inks are remarkably durable and scratch and fade resistant and can be cleaned with commercial cleaning agents without degradation.


Other wallpaper substrates we use are:

Fabric-backed vinyl wallpaper:  This wallpaper is very durable and waterproof. The wallpaper face is bonded, to a non-woven fabric back which helps to keep the wallpaper rigid while installing.


One-piece fabric wallpaper:  Waterproof and hard-wearing, usually polyester-based this can be one large piece of a fabric wallpaper printed to the size of the wall with a bit of bleed the installed in one piece, easy and quick to install by professional decorators, has no seams to pick and come loose, can be up to 5 metres wide and 10 metres long and over! Most wallpapers contain little or no vinyl.


All wallpapers are fire-rated, and a certificate supplied on request after each project.


With the healthcare and care home industry in mind, all wallpapers are suitable for high traffic areas, waterproof and durable/hardwearing, easy to clean and can take the day-to-day knocks and spills. It is better to use large-width wallpaper with a heavyweight giving the wallpaper more residence to impacts.
