Multiple theories have been developed as to why the “birds’ eye” forms in the maple, but none have been scientifically confirmed.  This makes this flooring type rare and sought after by many.  Wouldn’t it be stunning to have something that has been auctioned off for thousands of dollars right beneath your feet?  Artists, craftsmen, and woodworkers use Birdseye Maple for pool cues, exquisite jewelry boxes, musical instruments, and furniture.  Installing this hardwood in your space will not be a mistake.

Of course when looking at floor choices you will come across options other than hardwood.  A versatile “look a like” you may see is linoleum.  Linoleum comes in a variety of colors, is relatively inexpensive to buy, and requires little maintenance.  So if you can get something that looks similar to wood at a cheaper value, why wouldn’t you?  You do not want to forgo a luxurious look for one that has been considered tacky.  Linoleum has been found to have a yellowish discoloration after cleaning and emits an odor similar to a fresh coat of paint.  Make sure you take a close look at anything you are considering; you do not want to overlook important features.

Flooring in any space will be a lifetime investment.  By looking at all  your choices and divulging deeper into their positive and negative qualities, you will be able to find the best fit for you.  Enjoy the intriguing look of Birdseye Maple in your home.  Beauty and mystery, you can have it all with this hardwood in your space.
