Domestic hardwoods cost less to ship, giving Cleveland homeowners more bang for their buck—and a smaller carbon footprint. Here at Floor Coverings International Cleveland South, we love recommending hardwood species that are grown right here in the USA. Although it’s hard to go wrong when choosing a US-grown hardwood, beech is truly the unsung hero of the domestic hardwood world. Read on to learn more about this sturdy and affordable material!
Appearance of Beech Hardwood
A naturally alluring material, beech is light and creamy, with a pale pink tint and a sporadic dark grain. As far as staining goes, beech doesn’t accept finishes as readily as other domestic hardwoods like ash or white oak. Finishing a beech floor is best left to a professional, as the wood usually needs to be steamed to achieve the desired effect. After steaming, beech wood takes on a luscious golden quality.
Uses in Cleveland Homes
While some may think that its appearance is ho-hum, here at Floor Coverings International Cleveland South, we think that beech’s stunning simplicity can elevate any room. Even better, with a Janka hardness score of 1,300, you can trust beech to stand up to the day-to-day bustle of your Cleveland home. You can install beech flooring in your dining room, entryway, or other high-traffic areas without fear that daily wear will damage it. Here at Floor Coverings International Cleveland South, we also love to harness beech’s casual elegance for a calming vibe in bedrooms and dens.
