Porthaven aims to create care homes where their residents are able to live well, and Falkland Grange is no exception.
Offering a range of care including, respite, nursing, residential and dementia, Falkland Grange had to consider a wide range of design principles that would accommodate all their residents along with their specific care needs.
Enlisting the design inspiration of Kerry Southern, and her team at The Care Home Interiors Company, Porthaven aimed to provide spacious and private, single and double occupancy bedrooms equipped with en-suite wet rooms, communal areas that provide a real sense of community, a private dining room for family celebrations, a café and even a cinema to complete the wide range of facilities on offer within a beautiful care home that promotes resident wellbeing.
The Care Home Interiors Company, in collaboration with Sean Kime Commercial Director at Porthaven, knew that the products specified for Falkland Grange would have to tick many boxes. Firstly, they would have to create a homely yet luxurious environment, providing a stylish finish that all residents could call home, but more importantly the finishings had to be functional and suitable for a dementia inclusive home.
Kerry selected a number of ranges from the Evolution Collection including Glaze colour 387 and Geo Form colour 298, both of which provide a stunning foundation for the interior design schemes and sit fantastically well with the chosen colours and hues. The innovative performance features of the Evolution Collection would ensure the carpets perform even under intense footfall and when subject to commercial cleaning methods.
In addition to the more patterned ranges the plains of the Equinox and Economix Collections were installed to provide a tonal and uncomplicated finish for those living with cognitive impairments and forms of dementia. The colours selected also sit well alongside the Evolution ranges and have helped to create rug affects within the bedrooms.
