Hickory wood floors have a distinctive look with high color variation. Its sapwood is white to pale cream, its heartwood is cream to reddish brown, and dark brown streaks are common.
The contrast between light and dark grains in hickory are beautiful and dramatic, allowing it to blend in with just about anything. Hickory is a great choice if you are trying to match other wood finishes in a room. Floors made from hickory wood are also extremely durable—hickory is the hardest wood native to North America.
