mafi wins prestigious 2019 Home & Garden Award


BUILD, the international trade magazine for architects, designers, and construction, planning, and real estate experts, has named mafi the "best manufacturer of natural wood flooring." mafi's focus on high quality, innovative products that reflect the company's commitment to sustainability and continuous creativity convinced the jury. Making natural wood floors for healthy living spaces for 40 years mafi is considered an international pioneer in sustainable, toxin-free natural wood floors that are 100% great for the environment and healthy living spaces. Without exception, all mafi flooring is made in Austria and exported from there to all over the world. Each plank is given an organic, linseed-oil based natural finish which is given the necessary time to penetrate the surface to ensure a deep and intensive care. This gentle and natural finish preserves the open pores of the wood's surface, allowing the wood to absorb and release moisture into the space, an important feature that contributes to a healthy living environment. Dimensionally stable wooden floorboards with symmetrical 3-layer construction The top layer and the backing on mafi engineered woods are always the same wood species given an identical thermal treatment. Why is this the case? Quite simply because it counters the natural movements of the wood to counteract swelling and shrinkage. The middle layer is made of flexible and soft Austrian spruce, which reduces the tension in the plank. mafi grateful to receive the 2019 Home & Garden Award The sum of all the product features in mafi natural wood floors results in a high quality and durable surface. We are very pleased that the jury has awarded the commitment and unique mafi mission that underlies each product we make. Thank you very much!

The perfect wooden floor for open living and dining areas


Wooden floor in the kitchen or rather tiles. There is a need for these products and we have the perfect solution. Probably not surprisingly, mafi natural wood floors can of course be installed in kitchen areas. An example of how harmoniously the connection between living room and kitchen can be carried out with the help of the same floor is this private apartment from Austria.   Although the transition is additionally indicated by a transversely laid plank, the two rooms fit seamlessly together. The choice of flooring also plays a special role in this context. The coral oak, black brushed and naturally oiled, is particularly eye-catching with its elongated and hand-finished cracks. But it is precisely this appearance that supports the flowing and airy transition between the rooms and creates a holistic concept.   The planks in this object were also planed by hand in order to create recesses on different parts of the planks and to develop a particularly tactile character.   The same rules apply to everyday life in the kitchen with a wooden floor as with any other mafi natural wood floor. Regular treatment with warm water and wood floor soap care for the floor and make it more and more resistant in the long run. If a larger problem should occur, our special Spotstop cleaner and degreaser are available.   PS: Cooking - perhaps barefoot - on a mafi natural wood floor is far warmer and more pleasant than any stone tile could ever be.
