1. What are the key things to consider when selecting a wood floor for the home?

Choosing a wood flooring for the home can be an overwhelming process. Therefore, we spend a lot of time with our clients to learn what floor would suit their specific needs, and are able to tailor the selection of floors based on their preference of personal/interior/cultural style and concept.

Often first thing clients seem to be certain of is the colour of the flooring they want to have in their home- though they are usually uncertain about the design, wood species and surface finish they want. After meeting with our specialists and browsing through our wide range of wood floors in our showroom, it is common that our clients decide on an entirely different colour than they originally had in mind.

Other important factors to consider are budget, natural light exposure, room shape and joinery works, such as cabinets and doors.

2. Are there any particularly popular current trends in what the consumers are buying/looking for at the moment?

We find that there is not one wood floor that is most popular or fits all. We cannot predict as easily what colour or style will work best for the masses- this keeps it interesting and exciting to work on projects as each one is so unique and unpredictable.

Although patterned floors are currently in demand, design trends are constantly changing and choosing material can be difficult when thinking long term, but one thing is for sure: the use of sustainable and healthy products is here to stay. As a result, home owners not only want a product that is beautiful but also environmentally responsible. Wood floors offer both. Your interior design schemes can change many times over the years while your floor remains timeless, only adding value to your home. Wood floors conform to their environment and add value with age.

3. How does an engineered floor differ from solid wood?

Engineered wood flooring has been designed to be more climatically stable than solid wood flooring. Engineered wood floors from Kährs are constructed on a multi-layer principle that reduces the drain on nature’s resources, while increasing the lifespan of the wood floor.

A solid wood floor, on the other hand, warps and cracks easily. Since wood is a natural material that is affected by climatic changes, a wood floor moves with the seasons, meaning it swells in high humidity and shrinks in low humidity. Kährs’ multi-layered construction minimises this movement. It provides the correct balance between the layers – top, core, and back – and ensures the floor remains stable in all weather conditions. A Kährs multi-layered floor is up to 75% more stable than a solid wood floor.

Kährs engineered wood floors sand as if they were solid. The multi-layer construction uses hardwood down to the joint only, with fast-growing wood below, which means it can be refurbished in exactly the same way as a solid floor.

4. What are the eco-friendly benefits of Kährs wood flooring?

Solid wood floors are an unnecessary drain on natural resources. Kährs engineered flooring is definitely more eco-friendly than solid wood flooring as they use fast-growing wood species such as pine for the core material, thereby using less of the valuable hardwood surface layer when compared to solid wood flooring. Kährs patented its parquet technology in 1941, and have since been using it in all their flooring.

Kährs only uses reliable suppliers that share their vision and commitment to quality and the environment, and the wood used comes almost entirely from Scandinavia and Europe, where new growth exceeds that which is harvested. More than 70% of the raw material grows less than 160 km from Kährs factory in Sweden.

5. What’s the best type of flooring for a family kitchen?

We have seen an increase in demand for installing natural wood flooring in kitchens, which works perfectly. Installing a natural wood floor in a kitchen will add to the overall homey feeling, is beautiful to look at, comfortable to walk on, creates an ambience that lasts a long time and is non-allergenic. Wood is also renewable, unlike plastics and many other modern materials. Seeing as the kitchen is often thought of as the heart of the home – a room that family members generally tend to gravitate to – it definitely makes sense to install a natural wood floor there.
