About Birch Hardwood Flooring

Birch hardwood floors are our most popular entry-level hardwood flooring option. If you like the look of maple, but need a hardwood at more of an entry level price point, you’ll want to take some time to check out birch. Birch has similar hardness to maple and oak, with light and dark color variations to provide visual interest. If you don’t like a lot of knots and visible grain in your flooring, birch could be a good option for you.
