Royal Free Hospital – Aquatic scenes promote sense of wellbeing in children’s hospital ward

It is important in paediatric wards to have a bright and engaging colour scheme to appeal to children and to create a design as pleasant as possible for parents and children in difficult times. However, hygiene must always be top priority and this is where our Trovex Hygienic Wall Cladding products are perfect in hospital settings.

The project

The Royal Free Hospital is a major teaching hospital in Hampstead, London and it combines world-class expertise with leading healthcare that is local, patient-focused and friendly. We worked with Integrated Health Projects and the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust on this project to refurbish their paediatric ward.

A number of our products were specified for this refurbishment which included Trovex Diamond White & Ambience Hygienic Wall Cladding, Essence Woodgrain and Gallery products.

360 protection

Our hygienic wall finishes give all-round protection in the fight to eliminate bacteria as these surfaces have anti-microbial properties, and are easy and quick to clean. This helps to reduce maintenance time while still maintaining high levels of hygiene and cleanliness.

Trovex Diamond White was fitted to the ensuite bathrooms and walls in the patient rooms and Essence Woodgrain in Sand Beech was fitted to the main corridors and nurses station to create a warm colour tone. Ambience Stone was fitted as half height wall protection opposite the Essence Woodgrain to create contrast in the corridor and our design team working with the Trust completed this clean look with ‘Limelight’ edge trim.


Our client specified aquatic and geometric themes which would appeal to patients and this was achieved by installing Trovex Gallery in the ensuite bathrooms and around the parent/child bedrooms. There were design changes made along the way to ensure the exceptional finish required was achieved and our team were quick to adapt to these. Flexible in our approach, we were able to help create this stunning outcome for the ward and the Trust was delighted with the end results.
