Kahrs Original Capital Collection Review

The Kahrs Original Capital Collection features 1-strip floors. This flooring range is made of the finest oak wood using sustainable manufacturing practices. Featuring long, wide boards, these floors are available in three fascinating colours. An array of practical features makes the Capital collection a popular choice.

Kährs Capital In-Depth Review

The single-strip board reveals the rich texture and characteristics of oak beautifully. Since the top surface is designed from a single piece of wood, details like grains, knots and colour variations are beautifully revealed on the surface.

The planks are wider because of the 1-strip pattern. These floors add depth thereby making a small room look larger. However, these floors are a wonderful choice for large spaces too. They are sure to add a touch of elegance and class to any space.

The natural surface treatments combined and the micro-bevelled edges bring out the authentic look and feel of solid hardwood. The colours exhibit minor variations, which imparts an endearing look to the surface.

Some floors in this collection feature an ultra-matt lacquer-treated surface. The shine does not dominate the natural surface texture though. The lacquered finish offers a beautiful and durable surface. These floors are a great choice for spaces that experience heavy traffic.

If you are looking for ultimate protection against stains and wear and tear, consider investing in floors treated with oil. These floors are greatly resistant to scratches and scuffs. The oil penetrates deep into the wood to protect the floor structure from damages due to moisture and rough use.

An added benefit of the oiled floors is that they are easy to repair. You can easily and quickly repair a specific spot on the floor. That’s right, you don’t have to sand the entire floor to fix small, specific repairs.

Kahrs Original Capital Collection features a multi-layer structure, which offers excellent stability to the floors. These floors are also dimensionally stable, which means that any change in temperature or humidity does not change the shape of these floors.

These floors employ an innovative Woodloc 5S joint system that results in strong joints and stable floors. This joint system facilitates a glue-less installation. What’s more, there’s no need for expansion joints for over 75% of the installation area. These features make installation easy, quick and economical.
