|Kahrs has produced products that have a reputation for high quality and durability. Now Kahrs has taken one of their revolutionary product introductions and made it even better. A few years ago Kahrs developed the Linnea line of wood flooring. At first, it went sort of unnoticed in the industry and it was perhaps ahead of it's time. Now, with the strong popularity of the plastic laminate flooring, and the fact that this is a locking No-Glue wood floor, it is beginning to take off like a rocket. The Linnea series has a lot to offer. This product is a floating real wood veneer floor that locks together using no glue. The wear surface is a cross cut, not peeled layer of real wood. This gives the floor a traditional look. The core is constructed of High Density Fiber (HDF). This HDF core gives the Linnea flooring superior dent resistance while adding to the dimensional stability of the boards. The bottom layer is a natural pine which allows this product to perform well in all different climates. Kahrs finish consists of a modified acrylic urethane. They have used this finish for quite some time and it has been highly successful with regard to durability and stain resistance. If you would like to see more about the stain resistant properties of the Kahrs finish, you can visit their web site. They ran tests where they pour certain harsh, normally stain producing materials on the floor and leave it there for eighteen hours, with no changes afterwards. The Linnea series has a gorgeous species and color line, boasting sixteen different picks. Within that selection, you can choose from items that come in the more common three strip look, and also the newer contemporary two strip look. For those of you who I may have just totally lost, allow me to explain. Since the Linnea series is a free floating longstrip type wood floor, it comes as one longstrip, approximately 7.5" x 48". Mounted on each of those longstrip boards are either three or two strips across depending on the item you select. The biggest benefit with the Linnea, is the price and value for the consumer. If you were to choose one of the two strip look items from one of the other Kahrs lines, it would be priced higher than the three strip. With the Linnea, no matter what species you choose, or whether it's a two strip or a three strip floor, they're all one price! That makes this line one of the best values in wood flooring today.|

|We feel that the Linnea series is a good buy for the money. Many consumers are going out and rediscovering real wood flooring, but run into a snag when it comes to the price. At that point, they usually end up going with a more reasonably priced plastic laminate floor. Well good news is here! You don't have to dig so deep into your wallet (or purse) anymore to be able to afford a real wood floor. The Linnea is your answer. Also, considering this floor locks together using no glue, it is definitely a number one pick for the do-it-yourself customer. We have always been a big fan of the Kahrs products, but this one sort of brings them to a new level as far as we're concerned. We think this product is a winner and will really gain in popularity over the next few years. If you are want the look of real wood, but don't want to go broke buying it, then the Kahrs Linnea series is your floor! *NOTE: This product is recommended for light traffic areas only. Please remember that the Kahrs Linnea product is a “veneer” surface type. What this means is that the surface is a thin layer of real wood. While it will hold up well under "light" residential living conditions, the Kahrs WoodLoc series will hold up better and give you a longer overall expected lifespan.
