Surface Treatment

Kährs offers three types of surface treatment: silk matte finish, matte finish and Nature 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.

Gloss finish

The gloss finish gives your floor a shiny, polished look that enhances the beauty of the wood species you have chosen. This protective quality ensures that it will stay beautiful despite every day wear and tear.

Silk matt finish

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

Silk Matt Lacquer

Matte finish

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

Matt Lacquer


Kährs oil brings out the fine structure and grain of the wood and enhances its natural color. Floors treated with oil are easy to clean and maintain.
