Known as “hardened wood flooring,” the revolutionary engineered product is a favorite among discerning architects and designers.

Kenmark Interiors, a Dallas-based specialty interior finish-out contractor, has exclusively sourced yet another innovative product for Texas’ architecture and design community. Välinge Flooring, a revolutionary wood flooring known as “hardened wood flooring,” is in a category all on its own: it provides the luxurious look and feel of real wood and combines it with unparalleled durability, ease of installation, and water resistance.

Manufactured in Sweden, the innovative product features two patented technologies: Woodura® surface technology is a unique patented process that hardens real wood creating a significantly stronger, water-resistant surface that will look good no matter where it is installed; and 5G® Dry™, a fold-down installation system that gives Välinge Flooring its enhanced water resistance.

“Kenmark Interiors is at the forefront of design innovation, and we know our discerning clients are constantly looking for innovative solutions to incorporate into their designs,” says Kenmark Interiors President Pamela Kisberg. “Välinge Flooring takes engineered flooring to the next level: its installation is smarter and faster, and the flooring is far more durable. It’s also less expensive than traditional wood flooring – without sacrificing aesthetic.”

Välinge Flooring’s impressive dimensions add yet another distinguishing quality. They currently offer two large plank formats (8’ ¼” x 7’-3” and 10’ ¾” x 7’-10”). With wider and longer planks than traditional alternatives, Välinge is a cutting-edge force in the large format category. Suitable for installation on, below, and above grade (apart from humid and wet spaces), Välinge Flooring is ideal for large-scale applications.

Välinge was recently specified for the new headquarters building for Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Network in Waco, Texas. “We were thrilled to work with the Magnolia Network’s design team to specify the flooring for the network’s new headquarters,” explains Kisberg. “Joanna Gaines is a widely acclaimed designer who, like Välinge Flooring, is truly in a league of her own. The use of Välinge Flooring for her own personal project speaks volumes to the quality of this state-of-the-art, sustainable product.”

Sustainable buildings help decrease adverse environmental impacts and can, in some instances, positively impact the environment. As a result, sustainability is top-of-mind for many designers – and it’s top-of-mind for Kenmark Interiors, too.

“Sustainability and product transparency are at the forefront of the flooring solutions we provide,” continues Kisberg. “We are proud to exclusively offer this 100 per cent real-wood, sustainable, Greenguard Gold product that is also FSC certified, and we look forward to continuing to be part of renowned, sustainable projects in Texas and throughout the United States for many years to come.”
