Care Home Flooring Leeds and Bradford
We are a specialist flooring contractor supplying and fitting flooring to residential care homes, dementia and mental health units, and nursing homes for over 35 years.
Care home flooring supports a very challenging and demanding sector. It is essential that flooring is fit for purpose and specific to the area into which it is fitted. We supply a wide range of care home flooring from our base in Leeds and Bradford.
We carefully select flooring used in the care sector to ensure it strikes the perfect balance between practicality and appearance. It is essential in a care home setting that residents do not feel institutionalised. Therefore, careful selection of appropriate furnishings can provide residents with a true home-from-home feeling whilst still supporting the staff with easy to maintain floorcoverings.
We have an extensive range of care home flooring supplied by leading flooring manufacturers who specialise in materials specific to the care sector. There is a huge variety of designs, colour and materials available, so you are sure to find something that is right for your care space. The colours and designs of carpets and resilient flooring in resident areas may need careful consideration to help reduce stress. This is of particularly importance for residents with dementia, or those who experience adverse reactions to contrasting visual stimuli. We understand and appreciate the effects that the environment and surroundings can have on managing/improving these types of conditions. Most noteworthy, injuries from falls need to be prevented, and careful selection of non-slip flooring or carpets that have a slightly cushioned feel can play a significant part in minimising injury for both residents and carers.
Functional Care Home Flooring
Practical and welcoming flooring is required in reception or communal areas; heavy-duty, non-slip flooring to main kitchens; non-slip, decorative, resilient flooring to cafes/dining rooms; welcoming, homely flooring to residents’ rooms and lounges; and barefoot-rated flooring to provide maximum safety for residents in ensuite/shower and bathrooms.
Flooring must be resilient, hard-wearing and easy to clean. This should not be at the detriment to providing residents with a welcoming, therapeutic and aesthetically pleasing living space.
Carpets and other flooring for care homes
We provide a range of carpets and other flooring for care homes and the healthcare profession. All our carpets benefit from a completely impervious backing which prevents liquids or other spillages from penetrating through the carpet. Anti-microbial treatments reduce the potential for infection, cross contamination, and help to reduce odours. These types of carpet prolong the life of the installation, so it will not need replacing nearly as often as general-purpose flooring. Above all, the safety and well-being of residents is fundamental to the choices we provide in selecting the appropriate flooring for your care needs.
We always have our end-users at the forefront of our minds when designing and installing our care home flooring. Hence, we will arrange installation programmes to minimise disruption.
