Kahrs Spirit Collection ReviewWritten by: Yarl Christie
Kahrs Spirit engineered wood flooring is an engineered wood collection in a 1-stripboard format. This means, a single piece of wood is used for every plank board. As a result, the natural texture of wood comes alive on the surface. Natural characteristics like knots, grains and colour variations are beautifully reflected on the floor surface.
Kahrs Spirit Collection In-Depth Review
The history of Kahrs flooring dates back to over 160 years. The globally-acclaimed Swedish flooring company was the first to give the world an engineered wood floor in 1941. Every flooring range from Kahrs carries a stamp of innovation too.
The Spirit range comprises both rugged and soft-shaded floors.
The rugged floors are great for creating a rustic or farmhouse effect. The texture, grain and other natural characteristics of the floor are wonderfully highlighted, giving a solid wood feel underfoot. The rugged effect is highly authentic, thanks to a hand-crafted floor finish.
If you are looking for lighter hues, the Spirit collection offers a wide range of attractive colours. These floors feature a lacquered finish, which makes maintenance a breeze and adds to the durability of the floor.
All surface treatments used on the Spirit range are natural. They are free of toxic elements such as formaldehyde, isocyanate and solvents. These surface treatments do not make the floors bulky at all. They enhance the natural texture of the floor while adding to its wear resistance.
The Kahrs Spirit Collection features a multi-layer construction, which imparts excellent stability to these floors. The floors are dimensionally stable too, which means they do not buckle or warp following changes in humidity and temperature levels.
Adding to the excellent stability of the Kahrs Spirit is the innovative Woodloc joint system. Woodloc is a mechanical joint system that allows you to join planks together with a simple effortless click without the need for glue.
The firm and stable joints ensure there are no gaps between the planks.
Maintaining these floors is a breeze. If you are looking for a low-maintenance floor, a Spirit floor is all you need.
Dry cleaning is the best way to keep dry dust and dirt away. Use a vacuum or broom for the purpose. For a deep cleaning or to remove stubborn stains, damp clean using a well-squeezed cloth or mop.
Kahrs has always been a forerunner in eco-friendly manufacturing practices. The Spirit range continues this tradition. For starters, the wood is sourced through sustainable practices. In fact, the company regularly plants new trees to give back to the environment.
The multi-layer construction ensures optimally use of wood. Any wood debris including wood chips and sawdust is recycled to produce energy.
