Kahrs Studio Review
Diverse designs are a highlight of the Kährs Studio Collection of engineered wood flooring. Whether you want floors with grains evenly spread across the surface or floors with rich tones, the Studio collection has a choice that matches every aesthetic need. You’ll find a variety of Oak in this range, each rich in texture and charming in looks.
Kährs has used expert surface treatments and intelligent design techniques to make these floors great for day-to-day use in commercial and residential spaces with heavy traffic.
Kährs Studio Collection In-Depth Review
The Studio collection features a single-strip board pattern, which is one of the primary reasons for the brilliant surface texture of these floors. In a single-strip pattern, the surface of every plank is manufactured from a whole block of wood.
Therefore, what you see on the plank’s surface is the texture derived as it is from the tree. As a result, the raw feel of wood and the presence of grains, knots and other details are exactly the same. This board pattern gives you the look and feel of natural solid hardwood.
Adding to the texture is Kährs’ expert application of surface and refining treatments. There are floors with a matt lacquered surface, which are natural in their appearance. The surface looks like bare wood, which makes walking a pure pleasure.
If you prefer oil-treated floors, then you get a surface that highlights the natural grain and character of the wood. Oil-treated floors are easy to repair too. You don’t have to repair or re-sand the entire floor. You simply need to work on the damaged spot.
Floors with a brushed effect reveal the hard texture of wood underneath the soft grains. The smoked effect brings out the natural and unique colour variations of wood, giving you more reasons to enjoy your wood floor.
Despite these surface treatments, Kährs’ floors are not bulky. They are beautifully slender yet extremely hardwearing. A notable aspect of the surface treatments is that they are completely natural and non-toxic.
These floors follow the traditional tongue & groove system for fixing joints. This method provides firm, gap-free joints. As there is no space between the joints, there is no way for water to seep into the wood. The risk of the floors warping, buckling or cracking is thereby prevented. So, you’ll have a highly stable floor underfoot during all seasons.
If you are looking for a floor that is easy to clean, then the Kahrs Studio floors fit the bill perfectly. These floors mostly need dry cleaning for which a dry mop or a vacuum cleaner is apt. In case you are going for damp cleaning, use a well-wrung-out cloth to wipe the floor.
One of the reasons Kährs Studio makes for an optimal choice for modern eco-responsible buyers is its adherence to strict sustainable practices.
The oak used for the production is obtained locally from Sweden through responsible forestry. The debris from the manufacturing process is recycled into electricity to power the homes in Sweden.
