About Hickory Hardwood Flooring
Add warmth and character to your home with a hickory hardwood floor. Hickory floors are beautiful and durable enough to install in rooms with high traffic. With hickory hardwood floors, you can go rustic or go more formal. The different grades of hickory allow you to create an entirely different look depending on what design style you want to achieve. Country grade hickory floors look best in a rustic-style home or log cabin. Select grade hickory hardwood floors have fewer knots and a more consistent grain, which make them more suitable in a home with modern furnishings.
Hickory is one of the hardest domestic hardwoods – which makes it an ideal flooring choice – but that hardness also makes it a challenge to install if you’re a do-it-yourselfer. Best bet: buy pre-finished hickory flooring and get it professionally installed. It’s worth the additional expense.
