Birch Wide Plank Flooring
Birch’s utilitarian properties have made it one of the most sought-after woods on the market. It is the most widely used wood for the veneers used to make doors, paneling, and furniture. That strong and dimensionally stable veneer is also the primary material for most plywood.
But, its utility should not overshadow its striking beauty. Birch’s golden color and gently woven grain patterns make it a sophisticated and desirable choice for hardwood flooring. Stir birch’s surprising durability into the mix and the result is an alluring option that will brighten and beautify any home.
The birch tree’s smooth white to light grey bark makes it easy to spot in the northern forests that stretch from New England to the Great Lake states. The native inhabitants of that region knew well the usefulness of the tree. They stripped the flexible, papery bark from downed trees and used it to construct waterproof canoes, wigwams, and bowls.
In more recent years, the tree has also provided extracts for flavorings, glues, and oils. And its natural aural resonance makes it sought after for everything from speaker cabinets to drumkits to guitars. As a hardwood flooring material, birch’s sunny yet sturdy disposition has prompted growing popularity and stature.
