Geberit Sigma and Geberit Omega frames and flush plates have added style and functionality to the washrooms at Bentley House, an award winning care home in Hertfordshire. Specified with a white back-plate and chrome buttons, Geberit Sigma and Geberit Omega dual flush plates create a stylish look, save water and are easier to use for those with impaired vision.
The newest development for Signature Senior Lifestyle, Bentley House opened in January 2016, winning the Hertfordshire Building Futures Award for ‘Retrofit of the future’. In May the same year, Bentley House also secured The Hilden Style Award for Most Stylish Care Home.
The bathrooms were a critical part of both award wins and it was important that the products chosen met the needs of residents but at the same time were stylish.
Sue Dee, Interior Designer for Leisure Concepts, who created the scheme at Bentley House, said: “It is an essential factor in our interior design to provide the functionality and ease of use required by the end user, without compromising on the quality or style of the interior presentation.
“We do not believe it is necessary to make this type of interior look institutional and, whilst there are demanding circumstances, we do not want the residents to feel as though they are in a hospital, but a well-thought-out, attractive and homely environment.
“It may seem like a small thing, but the elements that people touch and feel, those that they use every day, such as a flush plate, can reinforce the non-institutional message. The Geberit Sigma and Geberit Omega flush plates and frames tick all the boxes; they are simple and easy to use, the flush plates are clearly visible, robust, well made…. and stylish too!” concluded Sue.
Bentley House is the first of the Signature Care Homes to get the Geberit treatment, its frames and flush plates will also be installed in properties at Ascot, Camberley, Reigate, Ottershaw and Bushey, which are currently under construction.
