At Kährs, we continue to develop new ways to bring beauty and new design to our wood flooring, increasing possibilities for personal choices. We can further enhance the look and feel of our floors through a variety of techniques.
Brushing the surface highlights the natural structure of the grain and emphasizes the texture of the wood. Brushing effects vary, depending on the wood species. Brushes are made from different materials in varying degrees of hardness, and brushing is often carried out along with other refining treatments such as staining and bevelling of edges.
Staining further enhances the wood’s natural colour tones. It also allows us to apply new colours, thus completely transforming the appearance of the wood. Kährs offers a wide range of stained options – from the palest white, to rich charcoal shades.
A bevelled edge feature on a 1-strip floor gives a very distinct look. Kährs offers a number of floors with a bevelled edge finish in varying degrees, from “microbevelling” – tiny clarification and reinforcement of the edges created using sandpaper – to more prominent bevelling on both the long and the short sides, for a rustic, robust appearance.
By using different tools for manual wood scraping and sanding, we can give a new wood floor a worn appearance. A great amount of handwork goes into each floor to achieve its rustic character.
This special process alters the colour and shade of each plank. There are two grades of smoked finish: light and the darker fully smoked.
This involves the same process as hand scraping. However, the surface marks are created to resemble those made by a chainsaw.
