What is Birch Wood Cabinetry
When it comes to choosing wood for kitchen or bathroom cabinets, birch wood is one of the sought after among cabinet manufacturers as well as interior decorators. Quite a few cabinet manufacturers use birch wood cabinet doors and drawers. At Maplevilles, we use premium quality birch wood to build our inset cabinets.
Characteristics of Birch Wood
One of the popular hardwood varieties, birch wood is easily recognized by its amber to white color with broad figures of brown. In fact, golden brown is the most consistent hue among all birch wood ranges. Primarily used for cabinet manufacturers, birch wood has nine primary species in North America while there are nearly 50 species of birch wood across the world. Moreover, birch wood typically has a thin, white bark which is full of resin. The older the tree, thicker the bark. Birchwood, also known as birch hardwood, offers a final grain and closed pore structure, which essentially means it not only sands or cuts well, but glues easily too.
Are Birch Wood Cabinets Strong?
You bet! Birch hardwood is extremely sturdy and durable, which makes it an ideal choice for building high-quality cabinets. What’s more, the fine-grained surface of birchwood lends an elegant and clean appearance to the cabinets as well. The high density in its lumber makes birch wood harder to scratch or dent, which keeps it looking new even after prolonged use. At Maplevilles, we offer a dark espresso finish to our inset cabinets which is a popular trend in North America.
Why Birch Wood Cabinets are So Popular
#1 – Premium Look: Birch hardwood is a popular choice because of the rich look, thanks to its uniform, straight grain which complements a wide range of hardwood grains such as Maple and Cherry. When birch cabinets are stained a darker color, they present a premium look.
#2 – Moderate Cost: Compared to other hardwood varieties, birch wood is relatively more cost-effective. Due to its popularity and wide availability, it’s more affordable to consumers as well.
#3 – Versatility: Boasting a uniform and straight grain, birchwood can be stained to a variety of shades, meaning birchwood inset cabinets are a great fit for a wide array of kitchen and bathroom styles.
#4 – High-quality Hardwood: In terms of quality, appearance, and sturdiness, birch wood offers great value for money in the kitchen remodel, especially when it’s compared to the alternatives such as laminate or composite material.
#5 – Staining Choices: Birchwood cabinets can be crafted, keeping their natural wood color or stained to a variety of colors while retaining the great aesthetics of the hardwood.
