Hickory flooring looks elegant. In addition, it’s one of the hardest materials available for hardwood flooring, even versus oak flooring. It features color variations, mineral streaks, unique knots, and intricate grains within a single plank. Hickory has light natural tones, ranging from pale golden-brown to creamy brown. Its bold grain patterns also complement the lightness of the wood flooring. American Treasures comes in a range of widths with a medium-gloss finish.
