Kahrs Olof Oak Engineered Wood Flooring, Brushed, Handscraped, Oiled, 187x3.5x15 mm comes in 1-strip and whitewashed colour and it is from the founder's collection.
As an unexpected benefit to the wire brushed floors, in general, is their ability to mask some extra small damages like dents and scratches as part of the character of the flooring.
Though Kahrs diligent work in cutting their energy consumption and creating waste they have a fully operational plant where the unused wood parts go and create heat which then becomes re-purposed.
A 1-strip plank pattern would mean the top layer of every board is sawn of a single piece of wood.
If you are a lover of the wood's natural grain, texture, or its core essence if you must say, then consider the fact Kahrs offers oiled engineered floors as well as lacquered and the necessity of oiling the flooring additionally on regular intervals.
Engineered floors provide the best protection against the movement as their design gives the correct balance between the layers - top, core and back - and thus ensuring one extremely stable flooring.
Some types of oak display a great feature of a natural design of tongues and waves resembling flames, usually perpendicular to the grain. When it ages changes its colour naturally from freshly sanded cream to reddish-yellow.
Each flooring comes with a detailed installation guide which is also available online, please, make sure you are following it through as deviations in the requirements may void your guarantee.
