Characterized by vibrant grain patterns, rustic hickory hardwood floors are a fantastic 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 is very pale, the heartwood adds dark reddish-brown tones, which means these wood floors are available in a variety of colors and styles. Hickory hardwood flooring is likely to be straight grained, but can occasionally be wavy or irregular. These gorgeous hardwood floors also have a coarse texture, providing them with lasting durability. Hickory is such a strong wood that, with proper maintenance, the floors will last a lifetime with minimal wear, even in high traffic areas of your home.
