Bark House

White Birch Bark Laminate Wall Coverings



White Birch Bark is a storied legend of the North American forest. From Native American’s birch bark canoes to adornment of our earliest rustic retreats, its romanticized past seems to make White Birch the most recognizable tree of the north woods. In the United States, White Birch is widely distributed across northern forests bordering Canada. While isolated pockets can be found as far south as North Carolina, the species prefers the colder climate of the northern latitudes. The bark has superior rot resistance as long downed logs can be found rotted out of their still intact bark cylinders. All of our birch bark is sustainably harvested from logs destined for mills to become plywood and OSB.

No other product that we offer seems to have the universal appeal of our White Birch Bark wall coverings. They have found their way as wall paneling in homes and lodges as well as in  institutional and retail spaces.  The chalky color of our White Birch Bark laminate also makes it a inspired choice for ceilings. It provides ample brightness and light reflectivity  while nurturing  the space with an earthy air. The textural appeal of Birch Bark cabinet doors and furniture panels makes them staples in rustic retreats as well as corporate offices. Our exterior laminate substrate options for White Birch make it as easy to apply in an urban commercial setting as a forest residential one.

No two projects are ever the same. That’s why we provide multiple indoor and outdoor solutions for residential and commercial applications. The only critical decisions to be determined are the choices of substrates, adhesives, and whether to use finishes or fire retardants. Our team has years of experience and has worked with a myriad of designers on projects across the globe. We will always direct you to the simplest and most cost effective solution to fit your design.

This white birch bark wall covering and laminate is 100% sourced and made in the US. Bark House® invests over 50% of its income directly back into our local Appalachian economy.  See what makes us Authentically good…
