OAK SOIL

Sarah

I recently read on Trendenser’s blog that a wood floor is like the shoes of a home, where – as in the world of fashion – your outfit isn’t complete without the right pair. That it doesn’t matter how nice you dress or decorate if you have the wrong pair of shoes – or wrong floor. I find the analogy to be really accurate, because without the right base, your home (our outfit for that matter!) will never really have an edited or composed look.

For example, this apartment in Stockholm, Sweden is a very simple home, with its beautiful crispy white walls, marble countertops, brass details and lots of natural light. But it is the dark wood floor that creates the warm base- a beautiful canvas that boosts the rest of the decor and interiors.

To get the look, we suggest our beautiful Kährs Oak Soil wood floor. This floor has deep brown nature oil patina that breathes history and elegance. Discover the floor here.

DOME

Sarah

Hello 2015! First blog post of the year, and we want to keep it fresh. For us, nothing conveys fresh more than some white wood flooring completed with classic/elegant interiors. And this apartment in Stockholm beautifully combines the two.

Kährs Oak Dome is a 1-strip stained oak floor in a warm white tone. The long length of the board enhances the depth of the floor, and the thin overall thickness (7 mm) combined with its impressive 12 year warranty, makes this floor ideal for renovation projects.

LET THE LIGHT IN

Sarah

This lovely apartment in central Stockholm is not more than a large studio apartment, but with some creative styling, these owners have been able to transform the home into an airy 1 bedroom apartment. We’ve seen an increase in inner walls/partitions made from glass with black trims that creates a divide for privacy while allowing for the space to feel open, airy and bright. The black trim not only has an aesthetically edgy feel, but also serves a safety purpose (I think we’ve all walked into an all too clear glass partition once or twice in our lives, right?). For added privacy, one idea would be to hang a curtain or blind on one side of the glass partition that can easily be drawn closed or open.

As for the colour scheme, this is an extremely important element when working with smaller spaces. Maximising natural light is key, and creating an illusion of added height and depth is something that will certainly make all the difference in enlarging a space- something which is perfectly portrayed in this apartment. The colour palette is muted, the walls and main elements are white, the “fuss” is kept minimal and all the focus is on the 1-strip wood floor (such as Kährs Oak Cornwall), which visually helps to elongate the room by directing the viewer’s eye toward the natural light source. Installing a wood floor in this manner will also enhance the look of the wood grain and maximise the natural wood feeling, as it causes the light to bounce off the floor beautifully. Et voilà, you have a larger space!

JERSEY

Sarah

Kährs Oak Jersey is a 1-strip floor in selected natural oak. The bevelled edges help to create a floor whose look and feel recall bygone days. This apartment in Stockholm by Fantastic Frank is a perfect representation of how beautiful a natural and lively 1-strip oak wood floor is. A classic that will never go out of style!

FEMININA

Sarah

This apartment represented by Fantastic Frank in central Stockholm is a beautiful portrayal of perfect feminine interiors. The home not only looks great, but also makes excellent use of the apartment’s small m2 space. Whenever you have a smaller home, it’s always a great idea to decorate in uniform, suave (e.g. pastel, nature) tones in order to visually de-clutter and enlarge the space.

The white-washed herringbone floor adds a interesting, timeless and classic touch to the base of the interiors. Kährs Oak ABC White wood floor is a white oiled oak floor with colour variations and small knots. Herringbone floors are not old fashioned!

CREAMY MAPLE

Sarah

It’s not everyday that one comes across a home with Hard Maple wood floors. We are especially loving seeing it in this home. The interiors are a perfect balance of what can only be described as a mix of circus-esque quirk and classic elegance that is really refreshing to see. And the clean grade of the floor makes it a subtle, warm and comforting base in the home.

Other wood species such as Oak and Walnut are substantially more popular than Hard Maple for wood flooring. However, Hard Maple is a durable wood species. It has a creamy colour that undergoes a fairly major colour change, where the creamy tone turns golden over time. Hard Maple is an excellent wood species for cabinet making; beautiful tables, cupboards and boxes are also often made from Hard Maple. Hard Maple flooring is light, airy and timeless.

Kährs Hard Maple Toronto is a light floor in North American maple. The strips are selected to provide a subdued, harmonious impression.

BACK TO BASICS

Sarah

Sometimes, you just need to keep it basic. But basic does not have to be boring. Sticking to basics in your home will actually give you more room to be creative- room to change and evolve as your personal preferences naturally do over time. Your space is a representation, a reflection, of you.

Keep your space basic and classic with a natural Swedish 3-strip oak floor such as Kährs Oak Siena. A natural wood floor with strips selected to provide a calm appearance but still with certain degree of variation in the grain. Kährs Oak Siena is readily available in stock in Dubai for immediate installation.

SAND

Sarah

This apartment in central Stockholm has a real tranquil quality that soothes our souls. And we’re especially loving the wood flooring, Ash Sandvig by Kährs Sand Collection.

A light, exclusive 1-strip floor with nature’s own design with knots and a lively structure. A characteristic is its bi-colour pattern with a soft white matt lacquer. The darker core in ash creates fantastic patterns and makes this a very special floor.

URBAN TROPIC

Sarah

The first thought that came to mind when seeing this one-bedroom apartment in central Stockholm was: urban tropic. That’s how I feel is the best way to describe the style of this funky home. What makes this home so interesting is that there is a clear mix of vibrant classic caribbean colours (the wallpaper behind the bed kind of also gives it away) and muted urban vintage/hipster accents. Not necessarily a combination I would have thought possible to achieve in an aesthetic way, but this homeowner has pulled it off marvellously.

This goes to show that dark wood flooring does not necessarily need to be limited to large, open spaces filled with windows and light. A dark floor does not necessarily darken, or make a space feel smaller, if done in the right way. The key lies, as always, in the foundation – the base – of the apartment. All mouldings and major finishes are in pure white, and the contrast of the dark wood floor gives the space depth and warmth, and the space is successfully feeling airy and cozy at the same time.

Kährs Oak Lava is a 3-strip floor with a brushed, black pigmented, matt lacquer finish, and is currently available in stock in Dubai. Visit our showroom today for a consultation with one of our Wood Flooring Specialists and to experience the wonderful world of Kährs wood flooring.

GIVE ME SPACE

Sarah

This minimalistic apartment in Berlin, Germany is a real beauty. We love the high ceiling, neutral interiors and large windows, all adding to the overall airy feel. While the diverse areas are separated by walls, creating depth and intrigue, the neutral colour palette throughout enhances and ties this beautiful home together into one large space.

The “greige” (a cross between grey and beige) colour of the wood floor is very modern and creates a very cool, contemporary feel. The wide and long planks also elongate and enhance the room. Select Kährs Espace Oak, a floor with 2.8 meter long planks, smooth handscraping and a whole lot of grandeur that both looks and feels heavenly underfoot.
