At Floor Coverings International Waukesha, we work with homeowners in the greater Waukesha, Brookfield, Milwaukee area to find their dream floors. Many Brookfield families choose birch floors for their home. This gorgeous hardwood is a great option for open homes with lots of natural light. Read on for more information about birch.
Simple and Subtle
There are two types of birch: red and yellow. Red birch comes from the center of a birch tree—or the heartwood—and is darker with red undertones. Yellow birch is harvested from the outer layers of the tree and is lighter with yellow undertones. Birch is not a flashy hardwood. It derives its beauty from its light grain lines and bright colors. Sometimes the grain lines of a piece of birch are so subtle that it makes the board appear “flat”. It is often utilized in modern aesthetics for its simplicity
Strong and Long-Lasting
Birch is a durable hardwood with a Janka hardness rating around 1,260. (Red birch is stronger than yellow birch.) This hardy flooring option is great for busy families and pets. With minimal maintenance—sweeping, vacuuming, and the occasion refinish—your birch hardwood floors will provide timeless warmth for many generations to come.
