Birch flooring is growing in popularity due in part to the attractive and authentic rustic feel that it brings to the home and into your home.
When it comes to choosing a species for your hardwood floor, birch is rapidly becoming viewed as a popular alternative to maple and oak.
Birch is around 25% softer than oak, but is still incredibly durable, with excellent shock-resistant properties.
As long as it is properly looked after, birch wood flooring can easily withstand the everyday wear and tear than flooring is subject to.
One of the reasons that has led to the increased popularity of birch flooring as a hardwood option is its attractive appearance. Birch is a straight-grained hardwood, with a beautiful satin-like sheen and occasional wavy structure. While it is commonly a pale, sandy cream colour, it can be found in a range of different shades.
Over time, it may undergo some amount of colour change, turning from cream to a richer, reddish yellow colour. Another factor that adds to the uniqueness of birch flooring is the natural highlights often found in the wood, adding an eye-catching element.
Because the natural tones and shades of birch wood flooring can vary from light to dark, choosing this can add to the attractiveness of a wide range of different rooms. Birch flooring also perfectly complements both traditional and contemporary interior design and furniture.
