Higher Education

First impressions play a huge part in students making their choice of university or college. In the 2016 AUDE student experience survey it reported that ‘Accommodation remains a priority for potential students with over half (57%) agreeing and strongly agreeing that it played a key role in their selection.’

For those who are leaving home for the first time welcoming accommodation can play an important role in transitioning in those early weeks and months. Student accommodation is expected to be ‘residential’ with a home from home feel. Sleep and relaxation impacts academic performance so the right ambience and light reduction is an important consideration in choosing the window treatments for student bedrooms.

Our long-standing experience and knowledge means that we can help you balance function and affordability without compromising design and style. We supply a wide range of non-gender fire retardant curtains, blinds and soft furnishings that are design-led but give contract performance (please see our product and compliance pages for more detailed information).

We support clients who are looking to refresh existing facilities as well as working with architects and developers on new projects. We pride ourselves on delivering a customer focused end-to-end service from site surveys through to installation by our expert team.

If you have any questions, would like to know more, or have an informal chat please call us on 0844 7365319 or email info@furnishltd.co.uk and we’ll be happy to help.

What our customers say

The Berkley Care Group specialises in high end care facilities where its mission is to deliver luxury living and exceptional care. Over the past three years Chrissie and her team have collaborated with us to create beautiful interiors in four new luxury care homes. The most recent, Cumnor Hill House in Oxford resulted in our winning the best for architecture/interior design category of the national Care Home Awards. The Furnish team provides unfailing service levels both in terms of attention to detail and workmanship. They are a pleasure to work with.

Carol Halton Creative Director, Berkley Care Group

Our working relationhip with Furnish is such that we consider them a part of Hallmark. The quality shines through every aspect of their work from the communications and specification through to the installation of finished products. Furnish supply all our soft furnishings including anti-ligature curtains, blinds, cushions, bedspreads and even shower curtains. We find the ease and flexibility of working with Furnish second-to-none; with a unique ability in understanding the brief and working consultatively, introducing fresh ideas and creatively finding solutions when needed.

Hannah Cokeley Design Manager Hallmark Care Group

What I love about Furnish is their supportive and consultative approach, always brimming with ideas and complemented with fabulous technical and product knowledge. The team is more than able to handle any project with care and attention coupled with a professional approach. I am embarking on a 60-bed new care home project and I have every confidence that Furnish will once again provide a first-class make-up and installation service.
