The interior design of Anya Court has been developed around encouraging active, independent living that creates a specialist dementia community in which residents will feel at ease.

Expona Commercial luxury vinyl tiles in Grey Pine 4063 installed in Anya Court care home’s Juke Box Café.

Galaxy Flooring installed 1300m2 of Polyflor flooring, providing stimulating and safe environments for residents to live and socialise in.

The uplifting environment ensured that the Anya Court facility took home the prize for Best New Care Home at the 2015 Pinders Healthcare Design Awards.

Safe flooring solution

The Expona Commercial PUR range provided a selection of vinyl tiles that were fitted in the home.

Grey Pine was installed in many communal areas including the ground floor and reception area; while Light Oak was fitted in the dining areas, kitchenettes and hair salon on the upper floors. The stone effect Classic Yorkstone tiles were also installed in the residents’ cinema room.

Polyflor’s safety flooring was installed in the bathroom en-suites and toilets to provide sustainable wet slip resistance in these areas.

The Expona Control PUR range of LVT safety flooring in stone effect designs – Warm Grey Concrete and Classic Yorkstone – were installed in toilets on all floors. Polysafe Hydro Evolve flooring was specificed in barefoot areas, such as wetrooms, for its pimple emboss and carborundum-free safety particles for slip resistance.

Safety flooring was also installed in back of house areas for the benefit of the Anya Court staff whilst at work. Polysafe Ultima flooring in Mortar was installed in kitchen and food preparation areas for added slip resistance.

In addition, Polysafe Modena PUR safety flooring was used to complete corridors, circulation zones, staff changing areas and laundry rooms. Modena’s micro-granite decoration incorporates clear aluminium oxide particles in the vinyl which are virtually invisible to the naked eye, offering a high clarity decoration.

Homely environment

Jacqueline Farguson, Design Manager at Hallmark Care Homes, designed the home and specified Polyflor throughout. Jacqueline commented:

“It was vital for us to avoid a clinical look by creating a safe but homely environment for Anya Court residents that would suit their various needs.

We are continually impressed with the range of attractive and fit for purpose flooring options available from Polyflor which meant we could use their products throughout this new care home and others in our portfolio.”

Polyflor has recently become a member of the Dementia Action Alliance, which works with over 800,000 people living with dementia in the UK.
