Kahrs Habitat Collection Review

The Kährs Habitat Collection of engineered wood introduces you to some captivating floors that pack in multiple features. This collection features single-strip planks that boast rich and deep textures.

Kährs has used several surface treatments to highlight the distinct luxury of oak and walnut. As a result, these floors set your space apart effortlessly!

Kährs Habitat Collection In-Depth Review

The incredible surface texture of the Habitat floors captures your attention immediately! There are a number of reasons for the unmatched looks of these floors.

The 1-strip board format, for one, imparts rich unadulterated natural texture to the floors. This is because each individual board is derived from a single solid block of wood. As a result, the original texture inclusive of grains, knots and colour, reaches directly to the floor surface from the tree.

The looks and feel of Habitat floors are truly rich as a result!

Enhancing the wood feel and appearance are the high quality surface treatments. The matte finish, for example, imparts an authentic raw feel of wood to the floors. These floors feature only a little shine, which helps hide flaws such as scratches and stains perfectly.

The refining treatments deepen the texture further. The brushing treatment, for example, brings out the hidden natural details of oak and walnut, adding to the beauty of the texture. Staining blends and improves the natural colour tones of the wood, which imparts a really unique feel and look to these floors.

The smoking process involves exposing the wood to ammonia in a closed environment. As a result, you’ll witness incredible colour variations that’s simply matchless!

Micro-bevelling brings the classic plank design to life. In fact, you need not worry about the grooves collecting dirt and debris.

The surface and refining treatments also add to the performance and longevity of the floors.

The unique 3-ply engineered construction is the backbone of the Kährs Habitat Collection. This design imparts exceptional durability, stability and strength to these floors.

Easy installation is another feature of these floors. The exclusive Woodloc joint system makes installation a breeze.

Woodloc is a mechanical glue-free system that creates strong joints without leaving any gaps. With Woodloc, installation is easy and quick. What’s more, the floors are ready for use immediately after installation.

The floors are intact and exceptionally stable underfoot after installation. They are also dimensionally stable, meaning they do not shrink or expand as a result of changes in the humidity and temperature levels in the surroundings.

A major highlight of the Habitat floors is the eco-friendly manufacturing practices. All the wood is derived in the most sustainable manner. The waste is recycled to produce energy.
