Looking for something a bit more? Open living concepts are rather trendy and offer many benefits - especially in family life. A combined living and dining area especially has experienced a massive boost in interior design in recent years. This opens up of course new opportunities and styles - also for the flooring industry.
The right floor for open rooms!
Thanks to the amalgamation of various rooms, imposing surfaces have meanwhile been created which serve as good examples. Typically, you try to structure and keep alive the open and friendly concept through the choice of furnishings. The floor plays an important role in this. Should you decide on a country house plank, the parquet is brought to life by the large lengths and widths of the planks. With the mafi wide-plank, we offer a prestigious, high-quality plank which opens up such open room concepts even further. Lengths of up to 5m and widths of up to 300mm stretch the room in all directions and create a beautiful base to live on.
Long and wide planks require the corresponding construction
Such large-sized boards need the corresponding stability to ensure they function properly over time. That is why mafi manufactures all wide-planks with a symmetrical three-layer construction. Here, the top and back layers are made with the same wood, the same thermo treatment and initial thickness. This creates a symmetry which massively reduces the movement of the wood. In addition, mafi planks have a classic tongue and groove profile to ensure optimum connection of the planks.
Thermo Oak without chemicals
The mafi "Vulcano" thermo treatment completely dispenses with chemical additives, in order to colour the wood from light to dark. On the contrary, we use a gentle baking process that completely colours both the top layer and back layer of the plank right through. Especially with scratches, this procedure offers the great advantage of not just colouring the surface of the Oak, but consistently colouring all the material throughout the plank.
The Oak Vulcano Medium bridges the gap between untreated Oak and the dark brown tints of Oak Vulcano. The soft brown tone of the "Medium" keeps rooms bright and friendly without having to miss out on the noble character of a dark wooden floor. The floor has some knots that support the natural look. Additionally, the haptic is kept alive by finishing the Oak Vulcano Medium wide-plank with mafi natural wood floor oil (Linseed oil based) which retains the natural wood surface.
