Stockmoor Lodge is a modern, purpose-built nursing home with specialist dementia care provision that can accommodate up to 90 residents. Designed by The Drawing Room Interiors Ltd of Sutton Coldfield and furnished by YTM Furniture of Pontefract, this state of the art care home opened in March 2017.
Three safety flooring collections featuring sustainable wet slip resistance were used throughout communal areas and bathrooms within the care home – Polysafe Wood fx PUR wood effect flooring, Polysafe Hydro Evolve flooring for continually wet areas and Expona Control PUR luxury vinyl tiles.
The Sun Bleached Oak, Rustic Oak and Tropical Pine wood effect designs from the Polysafe Wood fx PUR safety flooring collection were selected by The Drawing Room Interiors Ltd for installation in lounge/ dining areas, activity rooms and the on-site hairdressing salon.
Expona Control PUR luxury vinyl tiles were chosen to create impressive design floors for the care home’s reception area and café. The Warm Grey Concrete design was fitted in a diamond layout and paired with a black grouting strip in reception, whilst the Light Elm design was used to create a herringbone pattern in the café.
Subtle shades from the Polysafe Hydro Evolve safety flooring range (Colorado, Amazon and Blue Nile) were selected to provide sustainable wet slip resistance for both residents and carers in each bedroom’s en-suite bathroom, which feature walk in showers and adapted bathroom facilities.
Diana Cellela, Director of The Drawing Room Interiors Ltd commented, “These Polyflor safety flooring products were ideal for creating a safe yet non-clinical living environment for Stockmoor Lodge’s residents which was in line with the dementia-friendly design principles we work to. We have used a range of Polyflor’s flooring products on various care home projects and are continually impressed with the variety of beautiful designs offered and the performance delivered once installed.”
