WHY KÄHRS?

Kährs have been manufacturing wood flooring since 1857. Based in Nybro, Sweden, 70% of the wood they use is sourced within 160km of the factory and any production waste is converted into biofuel and used to power over 8,000 homes in and around Nybro.

Kahrs floors are made to withstand the extremely diverse conditions of a typical Scandinavian climate, from harsh minus twenty-degree winters to high humidity summers. Combine that with underfloor heating systems that are typically installed in most Swedish homes and large glass windows and walls to promote daylight indoors, and you have some pretty challenging conditions for a natural wood product. With their years of experience and innovation, Kahrs have produced a floor that can not only withstand those conditions, but can thrive in them. Kährs floors typically come with a 30 year guarantee – in Scandinavian conditions! Put those floors in the moderate climate of the UK and they are pretty untouchable.

So for a smart, green choice and for stunningly beautiful floors built to last, we believe Kährs is the only choice when it comes to wood flooring.

Kährs Flooring Guide

Surface Treatment

HIGH GLOSS LACQUER

The high gloss lacquer gives a wood floor a shiny, polished look and provides a reflecting surface. It offers an exciting alternative to more conventional wood floors.

SATIN LACQUER

The satin lacquer complements the character of the wood by accentuating its natural structure. It also makes the floor more durable and easier to clean. In addition, the Kahrs lacquer is one of the thinnest available, so it doesn’t conceal the woods natural lustre.

MATT LACQUER

The matt lacquer finish gives the impression of untreated bare boards. The velvety surface is incredibly tactile and pleasing underfoot, yet matt lacquer is as hardwearing and easy to maintain as satin lacquer.

NATURE OIL

The nature oil finishes reinforces the natural look of the floor. It brings out the texture and grain of the wood, and enhances the tone. Floors treated with nature oil are easy to maintain, but they need a little more care than the lacquered floors and should be refreshed every twelve months or so with Kährs Satin Oil.

ULTRA MATT LACQUER

The new ultra matt lacquer gives the look and feel of untreated, newly sawn timber. This innovative surface treatment is non-reflective, enhancing the colour of the floor while giving it a silky, yet strong shield against wear and tear.

Refining Treatment

Brushed

BRUSHED

Brushing the surface highlights the natural structure of the grain and accentuates the texture. Brushing is usually accompanied by other surface treatments, such as bevelled finish and colour stain or glaze.

Stained

STAINED

Stains are used to further enhance the natural colour tones of the wood – from palest white and whisper greys to shades of rich mocha and charcoal.

Bevelled

BEVELLED EDGES

Bevelled edges add a touch of drama to a floor. Bevelled styles vary from a mico-bevel (a slight accentuation of the edge using sandpaper) to a more dramatic, stronger bevel. In each style, both long and short edges are bevelled.

Board Design

1-STRIP DESIGN

The surface of a 1-strip board is sawn in one piece. This emphasises the natural beauty and accentuates every detail, from variations in colour and grain, to individual knots.

2-STRIP DESIGN

The wear layer of this design is two strips wide. The strips are individually selected and arranged to give the floor its own unique character, which complements all room styles.

3-STRIP DESIGN

With a wear layer that’s 3 strips wide, these floors offer endless decorating opportunities and look particularly stunning in smaller spaces. Creating a linear effect, a 3-strip floor gives the illusion of a larger, more open space.

PATTERNED DESIGNS

Dutch pattern, French Pattern, Chevron and Herringbone. These unique patterned floors combine traditional looks with modern styling and engineering for a professional and original finish.
