Looking for a light-colored hardwood that will give your space an open, airy feel? You may not be familiar with beech, but it’s a subtle, pale hardwood that is durable enough for any White Bear Lake home. Since it is fairly neutral, it works particularly well in modern and minimalist-inspired homes. Want to know more? Here is an introduction to beech from our team at Floor Coverings International White Bear Lake:
About Beech Hardwood
- Beech is a great low-profile hardwood, perfect for those who want their hardwood to complement rather than compete with their other décor. It has a straight, even grain, and in its natural state, has yellow and red undertones. As a light hardwood, beech helps to make a space feel more open and bright. However, it can also be stained to darker colors if that’s what you prefer.
- If durability is top on your list of priorities, not to worry. Beech hardwood scores 1300 on the Janka hardness scale – higher than a lot of other domestic hardwood species. Like all hardwoods, beech will last for many years and can even be refinished to extend its life. Beech flooring also happens to be fairly dent and scratch-resistant, so it’s a good choice for active households.
- When compared to other hardwoods, beech is fairly low maintenance. Not only does it resist wear and tear, but it also hides dirt and dust better than darker woods. However, it can be damaged by moisture, so you should not install beech in bathrooms or laundry rooms.
