Why you should be inspired by Kährs flooring

There’s no doubt that when we search for new flooring brands, we look for the very best across the world.

One such flooring brand that takes pride of place in our store is Kährs Flooring, so take a look at why you could find your perfect floor from Kährs:

A history of excellence

Kährs has been creating beautiful, versatile flooring since 1857, and is officially the oldest wood floor manufacturer in the world that is still in operation.

With a reputation for innovation, Kährs has also led the way with creativity and is one of the most prominent manufacturers involved in the development of parquet flooring.

Rising from a small Swedish village, Kährs now supplies products to more than 70 countries across the world.

Bruce Ulher, the sustainable and compliance officer at Kährs says:

“The company already had a great green culture and history that dates back several decades, but never really communicated and talked about it.

“Today, we are proud to state that Kährs has been awarded more environment certifications than any other wood flooring producer in the world – and we have a whole range of ongoing projects to ensure that we continue to be the leader in the industry on the path to a sustainable future.”

A head for innovation

There’s no doubt that engineered wood flooring is one of the most popular types of flooring in the world, but did you know where it came from?

Indeed, in 1941 Kährs was granted a patent for a multi-layer wood floor, which as you might have guessed by now, was the world’s very first engineered floor.

After years of research and study, the company was able to ensure that its new type of flooring remained intact throughout seasonal fluctuations in both heat and humidity.

With improvement always on the company’s mind, in 1999 Kährs also became the first floor manufacturer to introduce a mechanical glueless joint system, known as the Woodloc® system.

Revolutionising the flooring market, the company has further perfected the system and has since introduced the Wooddloc® 5s joint.

A wealth of variation and choice

No matter what kind of home you have, or what kind of décor style that your home enjoys, Kährs floors are designed to enhance spaces, which is why the company provides a variety of floors in a wonderment of colours, species, sizes, patterns, and finishes.

Whether you want brushed, hand-scraped, smooth, or ultra matt finishing, each plank is individually treated to ensure its unique character and composition of knots and graining is maintained.
