Hardwood Flooring

Naturally inspired flooring. Timeless, elegant and unique. Nothing gives a space that warm, comfortable feeling quite like a beautiful wood floor. it is something that can remind you of time spent outdoors admiring a woodland scene, or a barefoot walk among the trees with their scent on the air and soft foliage under your feet.

Sustainable, beautiful with an exciting finish. We love inspecting the grain patterns, colour variations and knots as we choose which wood will best suit the different finishes. The natural aspects of timber are what make flooring unique and exciting. Some of our brands carry 25 year warranty.

Wood flooring is a popular type of hardwood flooring made from hardwood timber such as Oak or Walnut. They are also refereed to as real wood flooring. Solid wood flooring has been around for years and are extremely popular in domestic and commercial properties.

Wood is a natural material. Variation in colour shade and texture is a natural and attractive characteristic.

The Carpet Mill in Cambridge works with carefully selected best brands. One of them is Kährs, one of the oldest makers of wood floors in the world. Since the start - more than 150 years ago - Kährs have worked solely with wood. This dedication and long time tradition has provided the company with an invaluable amount of knowledge and experience of wood – the only renewable flooring material. Kährs' deep knowledge of wood and passion for nature has helped them to become pioneers when it comes to producing environmental friendly flooring. Over the years, they have strived to capture the beauty and expression of wood – while at the same time contributing to a better environment.

This is reflected in every aspect of our operations. Kährs only make wood floors. Wood is the only renewable flooring material. Wood grows naturally in the forests and the vast majority of the raw material Kährs uses is produced less than 200 km from the factory in Sweden. Wood floors literally lasts for generations –and when they eventually are replaced, they can easily be used for energy or returned to nature as they are biologically degradable. The multi-layered floor construction means that the raw material is used effectively. Kährs floors are installed using the glueless Woodloc method.

Most of our wood flooring uses environmental friendly stains and lacquers. The surface is easy to clean and maintain without the use of strong chemicals.

Types of flooring - Solid wood, Engineered wood, Bamboo and laminate.

Grading - It is the grading that gives wood its character. Select - This grade looks natural yet consistent with few knots. Up to 10% sapwood can be found in Select boards along with considerable grain and colour variation, but only small knots. Rustic - More of the wood's character shines through in rustic floors including large knots, dark streaks, fill knots and colour variation. Again up to 10% sapwood is likely in the grade. Extra rustic - Very little is graded out in the extra rustic category. Large knots, splits, cracks and any amount of sapwood make this a fun choice and mean that your floor will be all that more distinctive.

A note about knots - Knots occur naturally in wood where a branch grows out of the main trunk. They can go deep into the timber's core. In terms of flooring, there are two types of knot. A dead knots is where the core of the knot has fallen out or been removed, and then filled. With a live knot, the core remains in the board. All grades contain both types of knots. If you do not want large knots in your flooring, ask your fitter to cut them out and fill them. However, it may not always be possible to find an exact colour match when filling a knot.

Colour variation - Some manufacturers' floors feature beautiful colour variations which naturally occur in real wood. Due to this authentic effect, your floor could include a range of lighter and darker shades. More intense colour variations may also be found where sapwood is present in the wood. Sapwood is the younger, outer part of the tree which is lighter in colour than the retired, inner part which makes up the majority of our wood flooring.

Finishes - Enhancing your wood floor's natural look and feel. UV Oiled - The natural beauty of the wood grain is brought to the fore when oil penetrates its surface. Each board is coated between five and seven times, and cured with a UV lamp between coats to produce a protective, muted appearance. UV Lacquered - Extremely smooth, glossy and exciting, a lacquered floor is also hard-wearing, easy to clean and maintain. UV Matt Lacquered - If you love the understated look of an oiled finish but are conserned about its upkeep, a Matt lacquered is the answer. Handscrafted - This finish sees each plank painstakingly scraped by hand, bringing a whole new dimention to your natural floor. the irregulr ridges and grooves that result odd depth and definition to the wood's surface, creating an aged look that is distinctive by eye yet smooth to the touch. Unfinished - Could anything feel more natural and authentic? An unfinished floor also gives you the chance to crete a bespoke finish by painting, oiling or varnishing how you like it. Brushed - A great option if you love the natural feel of timber. These boards are lightly brushed to remove the softer fiber between the harder grains. The finish subtly highlights the wod's texture both to the eye and to the touch, for a wonderful feel that instantly evokes woodland charm in your home. Swan - If you enjoy naure in its rowest, roughest form, then the swan finish celebrate these elements. Kerfs from the saw marks are left on the boards to see and feel, as though the wood has been freshly cut in front of you. The surface captures a wonderfully rough texture and rustic appeal. Distressed Bevels - Each plank is hand distressed on its edges to produce small grooves and undulations that are reminiscent of a naturally aged floor. The subtle yet interesting effect captures the charming timeworn appeal of a floor that has been loved by thousands of feet. Bevelled Edge - A bewelled edge on the boards creates a defined pattern across your floor when it is fitted. The finish gives a traditional and ordered feel to a space and the depth of the slight groove between planks will depend on the type and grade of wood you choose. Planed - Planed boards are finely sanded using up to six careful processes in order to create a delightfully smooth finish across the boards. Small and subtle ribbing marks are still visible from the planer for authentic yet contemporary look. Square Edge - Fitting seamlessly together, square edged planks result in smooth, clean overall finish to your floor, and can help a room to feel bigger than it is. This finish suits modern decor very well, while the wood's clean finish takes you away to a relaxing natural setting.

Engineered Wood

Bringing out the best in the wood - To the naked eye, engneered wood flooring has all the natural beauty of solid wood. intriguing textures, rich and subtle colours, and gorgeous finishes are all present and correct. However, the boards are constructed in a way that makes them more versatile, and more practical, in today's home. With central or underfloor heating, solid wood floors can easily dry out and become worped. They are susceptible to expansion and contraction too. Engineered flooring is designed to overcome such problems.
