One of the best things about wooden floors is that no two are the same. Real hardwood means they come in a variety of grain patterns, colours and textures. This makes your floor unique and that’s a beautiful thing. Wooden floors can help you enjoy a lifetime of comfort and elegant style throughout a home, so we’ve provided some super facts about Kährs flooring for you to learn.
Our many wood designs, ranging from light to dark, are perfect examples of the strong Swedish design tradition, characterised by a timeless, yet contemporary elegance. They offer endless possibilities to choose, mix and match for every space of your home.
Taken care of well, wooden floors can quite literally last a lifetime. They won’t look tired either, which is why you get such a good warranty on them. Wood is a perfect material for flooring as it maintains its shape and look for years. All that might be required is a repolish every half a dozen or so years.
Wooden floors are a green choice. They are a renewable material and do not generate methane or nitrous oxide emissions. Originally founded in Sweden in 1857, these iconic wood floors are now available around the world, offering a high-quality and eco-friendly floor that is ethically sourced from sustainable growing environments. A wood floor will last for generations, saving natural resources and this is at the heart of the Kährs philosophy.
The hardness of a wood is measured by the Janka hardness test. The test measures the amount of force needed to embed a steel ball halfway into the wood. Many trees make durable floors; often scratches you see are in the finish, not the wood itself.
Believe it or not, indoor air quality can be improved by adding real wooden floors. The fibres in carpets and rugs attract a lot of dust, pollen and allergens. Even with a thorough vacuum, these cannot be removed. Instead, wooden floors are much easier to clean with a vacuum or a mop.
