A wealth of choice for home adaptation projects
Today’s home adaptation market continues to be a growth area and at the heart of many refurbishment projects is the need to ensure that interiors meet inclusive design requirements. In an era where Government policy promotes closer integration between health and social care, the aim of care providers is to support people with the right care, in the right place at the right time. For disabled homeowners, this support is focused around encouraging independent living at home and to make this experience as comfortable as possible, allowing people to lead active, fulfilled lives in their own homes, thereby reducing hospital stays and care home admissions. As well as the use of suitable equipment to aid navigation and usability by disabled homeowners, the choice of flooring specified within a home is an integral part that can uplift and encourage health and wellbeing.

Traditionally this is achieved by installing one of Polyflor’s market leading luxury vinyl tile ranges such as Colonia or Camaro, which are tried and trusted for their high clarity appearance and warming, homely feel. However, Polyflor has now introduced new products to the market which are eminently suited to the home environment and suit inclusive design requirements. Secura is an innovation to the flooring market and instead of individual planks and tiles; this is a luxury vinyl sheet available in 2, 3 and 4 metre widths that can be loose laid.
