Kahrs Original Classic Nouveau Collection Review

Written by: Yarl Christie

The Kahrs Original Classic Nouveau Collection comprises 1-strip and 2-strip floors featuring matt lacquered surfaces and 4-sided bevelled edges. The floors are available in a range of fantastic shades from pale and light to medium, dark and super-dark shades.

The Classic range features oak wood and boasts different design techniques to bring out the exceptional beauty and texture of oak perfectly.

Adding to the richness of the wood texture is the wood grade. The floors sport lively grains, knots, cracks and gnarls. The colour variations are fantastic too. Whether you want a farm, countryside or trendy effect, these floors readily create one for you!

Kahrs Original Classic Nouveau Collection The In-Depth Review

A 1-strip or 2-strip board pattern imparts a special look. The single-strip floors, for example, feature planks made from a single piece of wood. The knots, grains, and colour variations that are unique to oak, come out alive. The full effect of a rich solid hardwood floor is experienced.

In a 2-strip board format, each plank carries the looks of 2 different wood boards, which imparts a distinct look to the entire floor. The strips are handpicked and strategically arranged to deliver a superlative oak effect.

Elevating the looks and performance of the floors further are the different surface treatments. These surface treatments are natural and free of toxic elements.

The matt lacquered effect offers all the advantages of a lacquered surface without any artificial gloss. These floors are super tough and very easy to clean. They are ideal for premises that experience heavy traffic and for families with active kids and pets.

The floors in the Kahrs Original Classic Nouveau Collection are resistant to damage caused by spills and wear and tear thanks to the matt lacquer treatment. As the lacquer sits on the surface without seeping deep into the floor, it keeps spills from penetrating the surface.

A brushed finish enhances the depth of the texture of the floor surface. This depth in the texture can also be felt underfoot. The floors are super tough thanks to the brushed finish, which lends better slip resistance to these floors.

The bevelled design enhances the texture and appeal of oak further. Each individual plank stands out. The end result is a floor that looks nothing short of stunning!

The Classic Nouveau floors employ an innovative Woodloc 5S joint system, which is the strongest joint system in the market. This glue-less system creates joints with a simple and effective lock to create a firm, gap-free and stable floor.
