ACHIEVING YOUR DREAM WOOD FLOOR

Whether you are looking to build a new house from scratch or renovate it, you obviously want every inch of it to be as perfect as possible. Needless to say this is one of those things that are easier said than done, but certainly a good thing to target. Naturally, there are so many individual elements that come together for the final result, and the key lies in tending to each of them well. Of these, your floor is an important part of the mix and one that needs just as much attention as everything else.

During our ten years of existence in Dubai, we have catered to various customers from all walks of life. They all have their own tastes, preferences and needs, and as a team, we work to help them achieve what they want. As specialists in wooden flooring, this is our forte, and we have some of the best options in the world right here. Kährs, whose floors we cater to, is the world’s most exclusive provider of wooden floors, and have been around for 160 years. What started out as a humble, small-scale business, is today a global conglomerate, with the same humbling values left intact. This makes them a business that is truly unique. On that note, allow us to guide you through the perfect wooden floor.

ASSESSMENT

This goes two ways: firstly, you have to thoroughly look at all the options on offer to see which of the types of floors appeal to you the most. Secondly, we come to you, to assess your space and understand your requirements. Our team is able to come out to you, and bring samples along as well so you can see how a specific pattern or type of wood would be suitable for that particular area. Some wood species are more resistant than others, and are therefore ideal for high-traffic spaces and vice versa. Of course these are technicalities that people are not always aware of. Additionally, we also offer engineered wood flooring dubai for those who are interested.

IN-DEPTH DISCUSSION

Much as many are under the assumption that all it takes is picking out the floor, paying for it and installing it, that is actually not the case. There is an entire process involved; and though some do try to do it themselves, we often have such clients coming to us for guidance when they realise there is more to it. It is important to discuss things like personal preferences, requirements and of course budgets, the last of which pretty much dominates the rest of the decisions. We walk you through our designs and types of flooring on offer including parquet flooring dubai, so you have all the information you need to make an informed decision.

MAINTENANCE

Your dream wooden floor will look great at the start and seeing as how it is Kährs, certainly you are guaranteed of longevity and the highest level of quality. However, you still need to bear in mind that any and all wooden floors need maintenance. If not, inevitably after a while, they will lose their lustre and begin to look rather depressing and neglected. Which are not qualities these floors are known for. Along with guiding you on the ins and outs of proper wooden flooring, we also make sure we explain how to maintain them, depending on the species of wood in question. For us, it involves the whole package, and we are just as invested as you are in securing the chicest floors around.

THE NORDIC GUIDE TO INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS

Just like you occasionally feel like treating yourself to a makeover because you think a new you is in order, sometime you feel the same about your home or office. The feeling is completely normal. After all, humans have grown to be the species that they are through trying out different things and evolving in the process. If not, we would all most likely still be in the Stone Age.

The process of change can be daunting or exciting or a bit of both depending on how you take it. However, it is always undoubtedly refreshing. Sometimes, surrounding yourself with something new is exactly what you need. And at Nordic Homeworx, we are poised to bring you the best in interior trends by way of solid wooden flooring. Representing Kährs who are the pioneers of the industry and the highest-quality providers of the same, makes our job that much easier.

Over the years, the world has visibly shifted to make way for new trends and ways of living. As such, the humble wood has branched out to offer different perspectives. For someone who is new to it, the subject can be confusing, even overwhelming at times. That is why we want to shed some light on today’s interior trends.

 

LESS IS MORE

A saying that is apt for many situations no doubt, but when it comes to wooden flooring, remember that you want the floor to stand out. Wooden floors offer an instant elegance and are utterly chic. Aside from that, they seem to effortlessly warm up a space, making you feel instantly welcome. Hence, if you are planning to go with wood floors, then we strongly advise you to let it speak for itself. When putting the rest of the space’s elements together such as wall colour, décor and so on, by all means exercise your inner creativity, but do so without smothering the star of it.

GO GREEN

It is no secret that the world is currently battling climate change, which has urged the concept of ‘going green’. Fortunately, Kährs is a brand that has always been conscious about this factor, and have conducted their operations sustainably. Given Sweden’s enviable affection for their spectacular environment, this should not come as much of a surprise seeing as how Kährs is Swedish. This means that they obtain their wood from areas especially designated for production, whilst they have also implemented recycling procedures. Today, greener alternatives are the roots of the future.

EXPERIMENTING

Some people are mistakenly under the impression that opting for wooden floors means being drab. Not so. In fact, we have some of the most beautiful options where parquet flooring dubai is concerned. There are plenty of different patterns you can integrate into your space to add extra character and personality. You can even mix-and-match different types of wood for the purpose, achieving something unique as a result. In fact, we have had some clients who have been willing to experiment and try something different. In a world that is as innovative and forward-thinking as ours, it is important to be progressive. So definitely try thinking outside-the-box.

JULY OFFERS FROM US AT NORDIC HOMEWORX TO LIVEN UP YOUR SPACE

As suppliers of the best wooden flooring options in Dubai, we at Nordic are wholly committed to your flooring needs. Representing Kährs who have long since dominated the industry since their inception, we are confident about our products and services. After all, we have been in Dubai for a decade which means that probably, we are doing something right!

Over these ten years, we ourselves have learnt a lot about Dubai’s client base and what their needs are. This has in turn allowed us to cater to this market accordingly, ensuring that each and every customer walks away happy. Whether they want to build a home, renovate one or simply revamp their office space, there have been plenty of projects to keep us busy and in our element. We then decided to introduce a series of offers that you can take advantage of, to ensure you not only get your hands on the best possible wooden floors, but also do so cost-efficiently.

We have divided our offers into two main categories: Floor of the Month and Jubilee Floor, although we also from time-to-time introduce others as we see fit. For the month of July, we have the following for you to consider.

 

FLOOR OF THE MONTH

Our Floor of the Month for July includes the Oak Dew from our Harmony Collection. While the wood itself is light and bright, much like the name of the collection itself, it harmonises your environment. Easy on the eye and particularly great for small spaces as it makes them appear expansive, the Oak Dew is a beautiful, classy option for any setting. Since we also handle engineered wood flooring dubai, you can ask us about the possibility of using this wood in the same. The Oak Dew features a slight colour change for variety, yet is not compromised in its quality or value. We used it on a villa for one of our projects, and the results were simply breath-taking. If you would like to take a look, just let us know.

JUBILEE FLOOR

Just as the name suggests this one is a celebratory option. Featuring the Oak Vista from our Småland Collection, this too is a light-coloured wood. However, it incorporates large knots that add depth and character to the floor as a whole. It is certainly a great choice, and requires maintenance which can be easily done with our Kährs Satin Oil Matte. What is most interesting about this floor, is that the colour develops over time, offering a different shade later on. No need to worry though, your floor will still be as beautiful as ever! Remember, maintenance is essential with all wooden floors, and we have all the products you need to minimise hassle. If you wish, we can do a unique parquet flooring dubai by mixing this with other woods. As the colour evolves, you will find that your floor has, so to speak, a life all of its own.

If you would like to enquire in person about any of our offers, we are just a call away. You are also most welcome to visit us in person.

HOW NORDIC HELPS GUIDE YOUR WOODEN FLOORING CHOICES

Welcome to Nordic Homeworx, your ultimate flooring utopia. Or to be more specific, your wooden flooring utopia! We are the proud representatives of Kährs flooring, a brand that is originally of Swedish origin and therefore stellar in true Swedish fashion. The fact that they have been around since 1857, should offer you some insight into the depth of their knowledge and expertise, and why we so vehemently recommend their products to our clients. Including you.

Despite wood being the preferred material of choice amongst a majority of people in the world, many still go for alternate options. When we conducted a research and asked them why, it turned out that it was because they were unable to make the right decisions or secure the right services to ensure a good job. Which is a shame, seeing as how Nordic has been on-hand to assist countless customers, over the past decade that we have been present in Dubai.

Here is a comprehensive guide into how we tackle our clients’ floor woes, allowing them to envision their space in its entirety.

 

INITIAL DISCUSSION

While we do not spend hours discussing everything about wooden flooring, we do certainly dig a little deep into your requirements and what you hope to achieve. It gives us a sense of direction so we know which way to head. We ask our customers what they want to change, why their current flooring system does not work and how our wood floors can step in to help. Without this initial chat, it would be difficult for us to make any recommendations or offer our expertise. We have an entire team of experienced, qualified and skilled staff so make use of us!

LOOK INTO THE TYPE OF SPACE IN QUESTION

Some clients visit us because they want their entire home renovated with wooden floors, and others just one space. Whichever of these you fall into, it does not matter: what does matter is which spaces you hope to makeover. The reason for this is twofold. For one, the colours you opt for will play a major role in representing the size of the room. And for another, depending on how often the space is being used, there needs to be sustainability through not only maintenance, but the type of wood in question as well. In order for us to deduce which the right choice of wood is for your needs, we need to know where your wooden floors will be installed.

LAY OUT THE OPTIONS

Whether you want parquet flooring dubai or hardwood floors can be a hard choice to decide on right away, which is why we lay out all the options available to you first. You can then either take back small samples or we can bring by bigger ones to see how they work for your requirements. We will discuss the pros and cons of engineered, parquet and hardwood floors and what their significant traits are so you can make an informed choice. Often, a majority of our clients are in the dark about these three categories, or even of the fact that they exist, so we find this to be an incredibly important part of the process.

A CLOSER LOOK AT KÄHRS’ FLOORING BENEFITS

The fact that wood is possibly one of the most versatile, stunning and classic materials when it comes to flooring is a well-known one. If you were to ask 10 people what their preference would be when compared to other materials, probably 8 of them would tell you wood. However, because not everyone is entirely familiar with maintenance procedures and in some cases have financial restrictions, some tend to forego the option. What they do not know, is that if they invest in wooden flooring along with the right aftercare procedures, over the long-term they will be able to enjoy its beauty and benefits for longer than they would with any other flooring material.

At Nordic Homeworx we are of the firm belief that wood is not only one of the most sophisticated, but also one of the most sustainable flooring options. Seeing as how we represent the king of wooden floors Kährs, this has been an easy job. They come with a host of characteristics that make them renowned wood flooring suppliers worldwide. Whether you are after parquet flooring dubai or plain hardwood floors, you will find that these traits suit all choices.

 

SUPERIOR JOINT SYSTEM

Given that the company was established in 1857 and therefore did not have technology to dabble with, it took them some time to come up with new introductions; but in 1999 they made a breakthrough. They came up with what they called a ‘mechanical, glueless joint system.’ As anyone who has had wooden floors or at the least has some exposure to it, will know that joining the planks of wood securely and ensuring it is done seamlessly can be a thankless job. However, Kährs eliminates the mess and stress that is normally associated with this task, because of their revolutionary Woodloc® system. Today, it has been upgraded to Woodloc® 5S joint, even better than its predecessor.

TOUGH SURFACES

One of the biggest problems with wooden flooring which often puts people off, is how fast the surface seems to deteriorate. Loss of shine, strength and expedited wear and tear are just some of the main problems that are faced. With Kährs however, you can look forward to enjoying your wooden floors with a peace of mind. Since they consistently invest in research and development and are specifically focused on locating durable surface treatments, you are in safe hands. What is more, they ensure that these treatments do not conceal the wood’s natural beauty, and are safe from artificial chemicals such as formaldehyde.

A HOST OF VARIATIONS

Now that you know the technicalities are well taken care of, you can explore their mesmerising collection of floors. We have a wide range of options on offer, no matter what the space in question is. Regardless of your taste and style or the size of the room, there is something for everyone. If you are still in doubt, we are more than happy to send out samples along with our staff to the location in question so you can have the samples laid out to get an idea. From different wood species to patterns and finishes, we have you completely covered.

Warm or Cool – the Right Colours to Enrich Your Floor

 

If you have wooden flooring in your house coupled with a wooden staircase, you may be wondering how to style them; what colours to use, which colours would be the best for the walls, the furniture, cushions, carpets and curtains. The colour of your decor, needless to  say, plays a major role in enhancing the final appearance of your beloved home.

Colour palettes, you may know, can basically be categorised into cool and warm. Both can add accents to wooden flooring in order to give the desired effect in each individual case. And then, there are the neutral colours. These may be considered as the ideal colours by some as they can blend in and add depth and elegance to whatever tone of wood may comprise the background.

Colours can enhance the features of any interior. They can provide the ideal balance, drawing the eye to the best features in a room and drawing the eye away from those areas which you may not want to highlight. A greater impact can be created with the right blend of colours. When you have wooden flooring in your house, the right colours can enrich and enliven the house, creating mood and character in a big way. Even a mundane, run-of-the-mill house can be transformed into a warm, cosy and comfortable home with the right use of colours.

If your wooden flooring is of a type such as oak, hickory or redwood, it can be made to appear more colourful by accenting the room in cool tones such as blue, green, lavender and purple. The cooler colours of the spectrum can make a room appear larger, calmer and cooler as well as add a dash of light. Thus, these colours are ideal for use in smaller and dingier spaces.

On the other end of the spectrum are the warmer colours which can project the opposite effect in a room. Colours such as reds, oranges and yellows blend in with the wooden flooring, reducing the contrast between the two elements. They can create a cosy and glowing environment and make a room appear warmer, smaller and friendlier.

If  you use basic neutral colours in your decor, it would be very easy for you to coordinate them with the tones of your  wooden flooring. Whether your floor is dark or light, it would look perfect coordinated with neutral shades such as white, grey, beige, ivory and taupe. These colours have the ability to soften the undertones of the wood and match a range of decor in many shades to the floor.

If you have wooden flooring in your home and neutral shades of colours on your walls, that means you can opt for a little more vibrant, daring and bolder accent colours for your furnishing and ornaments. If this is the case in your house, you can add more depth and character to your living space by occasionally changing the curtains to reflect different colours and patterns, throw cushions and pillows and other accessories.

What is most important is to get your wooden flooring right. If you have that laid out properly, everything else will fall into place with a little bit of thought and planning. If you are in Dubai, the best place to get your wood flooring done, whether you want a normal panelled floor or parquet flooring Dubai is  Nordic Homeworx, the Swedish owned and operated wood flooring company. With over a decade of experience in the market, the company will ensure that you have exactly what you want.

Protecting Wooden Floors From Furniture

 

By now, you must have read a lot on protecting your wooden flooring from the elements. You would be aware of the damage that water, dust and dirt, sand and gravel as well as pets and children, not to forget shoes, especially the high-heeled variety can do to your floor. Most of these things come indoors from the great outdoors, but did it ever occur to you that maybe, there are elements within the house itself which can damage and rob the fine look of wood  flooring?

Yes, that’s true, and one of the biggest culprits is furniture. But furniture is just inanimate objects, how can they damage the flooring, you might wonder. In a way, you are right because furniture doesn’t damage wooden flooring on its own. It needs a human hand for that. When we drop, drag and move furniture inside the house, the scrapes, tears and scratches they, especially chair legs, may inflict on the floor could be serious.

It’s very important that we keep our furniture more wooden flooring friendly. One of the easiest and most popular methods we can adopt in this regard is to use chair glides or furniture pads to prevent chair or table legs from scratching the floor. They may be made of different material and have different costs, but they all serve the same purpose. Some of the different types available in the market are tap-on or nail-on pads (advantage – very secure as they are attached to furniture with a nail or screw/disadvantage – if not properly installed, the nail or screw can damage the floor), self-adhesive pads (made of felt or rubber which can be peeled and stuck on the furniture legs. They are cheap, but won’t last that long.) and slip-on pads (made of rubber or soft plastic and can fit over a chair leg. Advantage – They won’t scratch the floor if broken like the first type or fall off like the second). Felt and rubber would be the best option for wooden flooring.

An important point you would need to consider when selecting furniture glides or pads is the amount of movement the furniture would be seeing on that particular wooden flooring. There is more choice when it comes to heavier furniture which wouldn’t be moved much. Thick rubber or felt would be a good option here. In areas such as kitchens and dining rooms where furniture will be moved around constantly, felt would be a better bet. Rubber may leave scuff marks while plastic will wear down over time, so they will need to be inspected regularly. If your living room is going to see a lot of activity, for example if you have small kids, rubber pads would do as they restrict the movement of furniture.

You can also make your own furniture pads by cutting old carpets, thick felt, velcro, leather and old but thick towels into the right size and shape and gluing them to the legs of chairs. Make sure that your furniture is level on the floor as improperly aligned furniture can also damage wooden flooring.

If you want beautiful and elegant wooden flooring for your house, one of the best sources in Dubai is Nordic Homeworx, the Swedish owned and operated company which is one of the top players in the field. They will ensure that you get the most high-quality wooden floor installed in the most professional manner to the most exacting standards. Whether your desire is a normal wood floor or Parquet Flooring Dubai, the company will make sure you get the most durable and top quality product that is on the market.
