Hickory floors offer excellent impact resistance and are recommended for high-traffic areas, including kitchens, entryways, and first floor rooms. A truly American hardwood, Hickory is a hard and heavy wood that has been used for ax and hammer handles, wagon wheels, golf club shafts, and drumsticks.
You may be familiar with the Shagbark variety of Hickory, which is easily recognized by its long shaggy strips of bark. Hickory is denser than other hardwoods of the northern forest, including Maple and Oak.
The contrast between Hickory’s cream colored sapwood and warm brown heartwood creates a light and dark striated floor that is equally at home in a traditional or modern setting. With a clear finish, Hickory’s color variation can be played up, or with a darker stain, Hickory’s color variation can be minimized.
