Characterized by vibrant grain patterns, rustic hickory hardwood floors make a beautiful flooring choice for your home. Rustic grade hickory is visually unique in part because of the original milling marks left behind by the sawmill. Prominent knots and water stains allow for a grain pattern that simply can’t be matched in many other wood species.
While the sapwood of hickory is very pale, the heartwood adds dark reddish-brown tones, which means these wood floors are available in a range of color variations and styles. Hickory hardwood flooring is likely to be straight-grained, but can occasionally be wavy or irregular.
Before hickory was used as a type of wood flooring, it was used to make a variety of sports equipment including tennis rackets, skis and golf club shafts. With a Janka rating of 1820, hickory is an ideal option when you’re ready to make a solid hardwood flooring investment.
