If you’re looking for a warm, minimalist, and durable hardwood for your next flooring project, beech is an excellent option. It is often a disregarded wood compared to the more popular red or white oak, but it is very similar in quality and hardness. Visit us at Floor Coverings International Treasure Valley to browse our samples and see if beech hardwood is a good option for your Meridian home.
Characteristics of Beech Flooring
Beech lends a unique coloring and tone to any room. The light, clean finish will open up any small space, and its soft, subtle grain would make a statement in a larger setting. While you see increasingly dark hardwoods in Meridian homes, the very light variations have gained popularity within the last year.
Trends are embracing the vibrant, bright colors on the other side of the color spectrum, rather than just darker tones. The benefit of a lighter wood is that it creates the opportunity to make a statement without overpowering your space. Lighter hardwoods are also better at hiding any blemishes on the surface than their darker counterparts.
Benefits of Beech Flooring
Hiding scratches won’t be a main concern with beech, however. With a Janka rating of 1300, it is incredibly durable and resistant to scratches and dents caused by furniture or heavy foot traffic. That being said, no wood is impervious to damage. You should always be sure to apply a protective seal to your floor.
The beauty of beech is in its profile. The uniform look of the finished wood is perfect for a minimalist home, but its warm pink hues establishes it as a cozy and comfortable floor.
Beech hardwood flooring is a great option for any Meridian home. But we at Floor Coverings International Treasure Valley understand that not every trend is for every home. Call us today for a free in-home consultation and we will bring samples to you in our mobile showroom. See how beech flooring looks with your existing features in the lighting of your own home.
