Whitby Court provides person-centred care in a tranquil environment using Karndean Design Flooring

The new flooring at Whitby Court care home in North Yorkshire was installed by S&D Flooring using flooring supplied by Karndean Design flooring as specified by the Fisher Partnership. In short, the work consisted of the design and installation of 2000sq metres over two floors with various themed rooms. The care home wanted a floor that will withstand high traffic in areas, be easy to maintain, hygienic and importantly looks warm and inviting for the residents.

For the most part,  the brief was to create a themed room of ‘At the Seaside’. Karndean Designflooring’s Michelangelo MS2 Navarra Chalk was used to create the look of pebbles. Whereas Karndean Van Gogh planks were used to resemble a jetty. In addition, a bespoke design was also required in the corridor outside the lounge. Planks were cut to create a circle at the ‘crossroads’ from the corridors facing towards the corridors.

S&D Flooring installers had a tight deadline to meet the client’s handover date. The conditions during the installation were difficult. Cold temperatures and specialist care and expertise was required during the installation of the Luxury Vinyl Tiles to prevent distortion. Overall an excellent finish was achieved from S&D Flooring, whilst delivering on time and on budget.
