Life’s a beach for Whitby Court residents thanks to Karndean Designflooring

Published

The UK’s leading residential and nursing care specialist, The Fisher Partnership, has looked to our flooring to complete its latest purpose built care home at Whitby Court, North Yorkshire.

Inspired by a nautical-beach theme, The Fisher Partnership opted for Karndean because of its modern designs and compatibility with underfloor heating, specifying over 1,570.92m2 throughout their latest new build project.

The stand out features include an indoor beach, using the exotic grain of Da Vinci Kenyan Tigerwood, against the inviting pebble effect of Michelangelo Navarra Chalk, a dedicated Train Room featuring Knight Tile Caribbean Driftwood, as well as a glamorous hair salon displaying Knight Tile White Painted Oak.

Alongside Da Vinci Spirito Limestone in a purpose built kitchen area, Knight Tile Pale Limed Oak in adjoining walkways and Knight Tile White Painted Oak in various bedrooms.

“We were always looking to create an engaging and interesting space for residents,” commented Jenny Fisher, business estate manager, at The Fisher Partnership. 

She said: “As well as being hard wearing and easy to maintain, our flooring choice needed to offer the wow factor. Immediately impressed with the project portfolio, we selected natural wood effect flooring to complete our look against distinctive concrete designs.

“We’ve had some amazing feedback from residents and visitors alike, and we wouldn’t hesitate to specify Karndean in the future. It is by far the best representation of real wood and stone on the market.”

Whitby Court is the town’s first purpose-built ecological care home and aims to provide person-centred care in a tranquil environment.

Paul Barratt, managing director of Karndean Designflooring said: “Our products are highly recognised for their endless design capabilities, so it’s fantastic to see such an inspiring space with sweeping curves and zoning to guide residents throughout the area.

“As well as being practical and durable, it’s important to capture creativity in your floor design. Whitby Court has certainly achieved this and the finished care home is a real credit to The Fisher Partnership.”
