European Beech Wood Floor

European Beech Room Scene Botanical name: Fagus, slyvatica

Description: European Beech is widely used in furniture where its light orangey tan color along with its fine graining and small rays offer a distinct contemporary look.

Color Range: European Beech wood floors offer a medium range of color variability. In the drying process, steamed Beech yields a pink/orangey tan color, while the un-steamed Beech wood yields a blonde tan colored wood. Within each of these selections, Beech ranges in color from a light cream color on through to a medium tan brown and when steamed will have the pinkish/orangey overtones.

Color Change: European Beech wood floors undergo a medium degree of color change with a slight muting of the orangey tan colors and an ambering in color over time.

Hardness: 1300; versus Red oak at 1260 and N maple at 1450
