ABOUT CARE DESIGN
- Care Design was founded in 1978 and was one of the
very first companies in the UK to design and supply
kitchens for wheelchair users. Unlike may other companies
in this field Care Design's first area of speciality
was, and still is kitchens for wheelchair users, and
as such our knowledge in this area is vast. A kitchen
for a wheelchair user is very different to that for
an able bodied user and it is for this expertise that
many of our clients select Care Design.
- Originally the kitchens which we supplied were sourced
from abroad where the knowledge of this type of kitchen
construction was ahead of the UK however as our expertise
grew and it became clear that our clients often required
kitchens with much shorter delivery times than we were
able to acquire from abroad we decided to set up a team
in the UK to build these units. This team is part of
our Company and only builds products for us. Due to
this change we were able to improve our products significantly
as we have total control over materials, construction,
finishes, delivery times etc to ensure a quality product.
Also due to this we are able to build "specials" such
as units 850mm wide instead of 800mm or 900mm so that
our clients can have units which are really made to
- Our Production and Sales Departments are based in
the North of England however our clients, many of whom
are major Architects, Housing Associations, Contractors
and end users, are situated throughout the UK and in
recent years we have had the pleasure of supplying projects
as far afield as Jersey, Northern Ireland, Northern
Scotland and all over the UK.
- To enhance our range in recent years we have added
wardrobes and chests of drawers for the bedroom, also
built by our Production Department, with special features
for wheelchair users.
- There are also a wide range of items for the bathroom
such as support rails, raised toilet seats, shower seats
and our newest product which replaces the toilet seat
and provides a bidet facility. These products are supplied
to us by a variety of companies, including Pressalit,
in the UK and abroad.
- For the kitchens we offer a free of charge design
service and working from a plan submitted to ourselves
by our Clients we will provide proposed layouts and
quotations taking into account the special requirements
of each project within one to two working weeks. They
can also be supplied on disc in BMP format so that they
can be built into our clients own presentations.
- Care Design is determined to provide quality products
at reasonable prices in a professional and helpful manner.
