The creative people at Northlight Art Centre in Leeds are are a growing team of passionate artists and art enthusiasts with a vision to provide a platform for artists to promote their work both online through their website and offline through their studio and events.
Seeking to expand the business and generate more opportunities, proprietors Tim and Lisa invested in a new studio which would give them more space for artists to exhibit a well as important community engagement. Their new multi-function unit comprises a cafe style gallery, bar, kitchen and several perfectly formed meeting rooms for local artists to hire when needed. The Northlight Arts Centre has become a hive of creative activity and is going from strength to strength.
Part of ethos at Northlight Arts Centre is to focuses on community engagement and for two mornings a week, the open plan cafe area is transformed into a toddlers play space where parents and carers can meet and mingle. The team considered the existing hard laminate floor a hazard for little ones and wanted to create a ‘softer’ to avoid bumps and bruises. After all it’s much easier to relax knowing your little one’s are protected as much as possible!
It didn’t take long for Lisa and the team to find what they were looking for. Interlocking soft foam play from Soft Floor KIDS are the ultimate multi-purpose floor solution for play areas in almost any location. Available in 30cm and 60cm size and an array of colours, there’s a soft floor play mat to match any theme. They are quick to lay, easy to store/clean and their interlocking edges help create a seamless and steady floor space.
In order not to distract from some of the vibrant and eye-catching art on display, they opted to keep things natural and selected the ‘dove grey’ colour from our pastel range – an excellent choice if we do say so ourselves! Choosing 60cm mats also helps speed up laying time so this was another important choice.
When asked for her feedback, Lisa said:
“We are delighted with the play mats from Soft Floor KIDS and were so glad to find them online. They have transformed our play space and made it extra safe for visiting toddlers. The mats are thick and feel like premium quality so we know they will last a long time. We’ve already had a few spills but these are easily cleaned up with soapy water. An excellent product!”
