KAHRS WOOD FLOORS USED TO MODERNISE NOTTINGHAM CHURCH
4 December 2012
A church in Nottingham which has been the subject of a major refurbishment has been laid in Kahrs Oak Hampshire wood flooring, which has been chosen to complement the building’s eclectic new interiors.
The project, masterminded by Mark Stewart, involved planning brand new interiors for the 272m² St Nicholas Church, which is in the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham. The seventeenth century church, a Grade II listed building, was badly in need of renovation.
The ultimate aim of the designers was to modernise the church’s interiors with modern furniture and natural materials, whilst still staying true to the original architecture. This is why the Kahrs Oak Hampshire range of one-strip plank wood flooring was ideal for the project, as it is natural, with a rustic-grain. This particular type of Kahrs flooring has warm honey tones, which helps to create the welcoming and friendly environment the designers had in mind.
Another benefit of the Kahrs Oak Hampshire range is its durability. A durable and hard-wearing floor, it is expected to last for years without needing replacement. It is also suitable for use with underfloor heating, which is needed to heat the cavernous interiors of the church.
