If you’re looking for a unique, vibrant wood that’s known for its supreme durability and its rustic appeal, then look no further.
Hickory flooring can give off the charm of a cozy cabin, provide a foundation for a colonial look, or play well with contemporary decor that incorporates a natural feel. While all hardwood flooring upgrades will increase your home’s resale value, hickory will add extra value because of its durability.
One of the most notable elements of hickory is its unique look. From the dark knots to the eye-catching wood grain, hickory flooring is a great choice if you’re looking for something more distinctive.
When left unstained, hickory has beautiful patterning in its colours, from creamy browns to almost golden hues — so it adds a stronger visual element to your floors.
If you appreciate hickory’s wood grain, but would prefer a different shade or less contrast for an upscale traditional look, then you’re in luck: hickory is easy to stain due to its porous nature.
Durability and hickory flooring go hand in hand. Scoring 1820 on the Janka scale, hickory is the hardest commercially available hardwood in North America. In fact, hickory is 30% stronger than white oak, which is the industry standard for durability.
Hickory flooring is also shock resistant due to its strength and density. This means that you won’t have to worry as much about accidentally dropping a pan, walking around in high-heeled shoes, or your children’s antics.
If you are looking for a hardwood floor that will increase your home’s value, then hickory is an excellent option. In fact, hickory flooring is more valuable than some of the most common, and popular, flooring options like oak.
