Our Fasade Diamond Plate panels recently were used for a fun, functional firehouse-themed bedroom update. The Corner Kingdom Project re-designs bedrooms for kids with special needs or illnesses.
“Many of these children rely on medical devices, but this equipment often makes the room feel cold and sterile,” says a Corner Kingdom Project spokesperson.
“Since surrounding environments affect mood and well-being, we creatively integrate medical devices, therapeutic tools, and sensory stations into the room design. Our rooms provide functionality and organization for parents. And children can enjoy being kings and queens of their own castle.”
John, 5, has Stage 4 anaplastic ganglioglioma. This is an aggressive, malignant brain tumor. But, despite his illness, his enthusiasm for firefighting is strong.
The Fasade panels used throughout the room lend that authentic firehouse look and feel.
Corner Kingdom worked with volunteers from the Evesham Fire Rescue, N.J., and BELFOR Restoration. They raised almost $11,000. More than 50 people helped make the project a huge success.
Judging by the smile on John‘s face, he got the room of his dreams.
