The task for this project was providing sophisticated, elegant interiors for an active care home. Working with the team at Northcare, we are pleased with the balance that was found.

Introduction

Northcare is a family run business that has been established for over 30 years, building and operating care homes in Scotland’s Central Belt. Offering professional, 24 hour care for their residents the have found the balance between the specialist medical care their guests require at times. All while providing an elegant, homely, yet luxurious space for their guests to relax and socialise.

Northcare have been coming to Elite for their furniture, lighting and flooring for several years now, building a close working relationship. Our ability to provide high quality items at a competitive price, professionally delivered, makes them return to us time and time again.

The Challenge for Northcare

Northcare elevates later living, providing the highest quality of interiors with a cinema, hair salon, bars, quiet rooms and multiple dining options for residents. Above providing simple spaces, Northcare collect antique furnishings. These luxurious cabinets and accessories elevate each space, making residents feel at home.

Matching the elegance of antique accessories and cabinetry can be a challenge. Especially when looking for more practical, stain resistant, robust furniture that can withstand the care environment.

This is where Elite excels. Providing high quality, yet tastefully designed schemes with sympathetic material choices.

The Result

Betsy chose the bedroom schemes alongside the Northcare team. A neutral colour scheme is often used in care homes, as this allows guests to add personality to their room. Mementos, artwork and soft furnishings are often added to make a room feel more like home.

More than style, the comfort of residents is also essential. This is why we provided a range of mattresses including regular pocket sprung and specialist healthcare mattresses with stain resistant, wipe clean cases, providing additional orthopedic support.

Moving away from the bedrooms, we were also asked to provide goods for quiet rooms, lounges, and dining rooms. This is where further pattern and colours came into play.

Each floor took on a unique colour scheme featuring pinks, kingfisher blue and neutral ivory.

As shown in the attached photos, lengthening patterns were used for curtains to provide a modern twist while complimenting the vintage furniture in each room.

 

Elite was also selected to supply all flooring, running from reception areas, hallways, bedrooms through to the bar and social spaces. Our wide selection of contract flooring comes with specific underlay and borders to help it last busy, frequent use. John our flooring layer was hard at work for several days completing the build on site.

The Outcome

The installation of the furniture was completed on site by the Elite team and our trusted contractors. Being on site as construction was underway was a great challenge for the team.

The care home is now open with residents in house, making their space their own. We look forward to working with Northcare on future projects.
