Kastamonu Extends Laminate RangeMedia
New laminate decors of the 33rd class of wear resistance have joined the Floorplan Emerald collection.
Laminate of the Floorpan Emerald collection is distinguished by a high class of wear resistance and strength characteristics. 12 mm floorboards have a four-sided chamfer and a unique Uniclic lock system. Floorpan Emerald decors reproduce the palette of real wood. Warm, natural and monochrome tones combined with bleached wood create a pleasant atmosphere and a sense of home comfort.
“Kastamonu designers have created this laminate taking into account modern trends and fashion for shades and textures. We believe that the new decors Larsen Oak, Morgan Oak, Davis Oak and Cartier Oak will rank high in our collection and in interiors of our customers, and we will continue to further expand the range of high-quality products,” said Ali Kiliç, CEO of Kastamonu Russia.
