Kährs offers several types of surface treatment: high gloss lacquer, silk matt lacquer, matt lacquer and oil. No matter which one you choose, your floor will be ready to walk on as soon as it is installed. All Kährs surface treatments are solvent-free. In 1984, we were the first flooring manufacturer to implement an entirely solvent-free production process.

High gloss lacquer

The high gloss lacquer gives your floor a shiny, polished look that enhances the beauty of the wood species you've chosen. It also protects your floor from everyday wear and tear.

Silk matt lacquer

Lacquered floors are easy to maintain. Our silk matt lacquer complements the wood’s character by accentuating its natural structure. It also makes the floor more hardwearing and easier to clean. Despite its strength, Kährs’ lacquer coating is exceptionally thin and, unlike many other lacquers, does not conceal the structure of the wood. In addition, with Kährs silk matt lacquer there’s no artificial shine.

Matt lacquer

Kährs matt lacquer is as hardwearing and easy to maintain as our silk matt lacquer. The subtle finish produces an untreated, bare wood look.


Oil brings out the fine structure and grain of the wood and enhances its natural colour. Floors treated with oil are easy to clean and maintain, but they need a little more care and should be oiled regularly.
