Distinctive Color Variations
Birch is a medium density hardwood with a smooth surface texture. It has a tight wood grain that is strong and heavy, with a high resistance to abrasion. Birch cabinets enable paints, stains and polishes to be applied with perfection.
The predominant sapwood color of birch cabinets is white to creamy yellow. The heartwood varies in color from medium to dark brown to reddish brown. This range in color, along with the wood’s curly or wavy pattern, creates for a distinctive statement in cabinets.
Rustic Birch cabinets may contain pin holes, open knots, small cracks, bird pecks, mineral streaks and grain variations.
