Renowned for its unmatched combination of strength and hardness, hickory hardwood flooring offers high performance without sacrificing beauty and appeal. In fact, its wide selection of colors and the dramatic variations in shading give hickory floors a distinctive vibrancy and natural charm.

Hickory wood also tolerates staining exceptionally well, which allows detail and graining to stand out and adds depth to the natural colors. Choose from golden creams and ambers, cool grays, rich mochas, and more.

Solid and Engineered Hickory Hardwood Flooring

Hickory solid hardwood flooring delivers the classic look and feel that's made hardwood floors so popular around the world. And, these floors last—they often provide decades of use with the toughness and stability needed for even the busiest homes. Each solid hardwood plank is a solid piece of hickory wood, a domestic species common to temperate forests across North America. Only nature can provide this type of exceptional strength.

Hickory engineered hardwood flooring gives you the same natural look and feel as solid hickory hardwood. However, innovative construction techniques add a composite core beneath the hickory veneer. This improves strength and resistance to heavy foot traffic and protects against moisture. The core also enhances stability, so your floors feel firmer underfoot.

Whatever selection you make, you'll surely enjoy hickory's remarkable luster and beauty for years to come. And you'll find options for any grade in your home, be it an upstairs bedroom, a downstairs family room, or a basement game room. With matching molding and baseboards, your interiors will boast a cohesiveness and appeal you'll love. You can enliven a smaller room with wider and longer boards for a more spacious effect or opt for smaller and narrower boards to make a large room feel more intimate or formal.

Hickory hardwood floors can be installed using simple click-float techniques, nailing or stapling down the boards, or gluing them. Unsure of your do-it-yourself skills? Enlist our professional independent contractors and go easy on yourself. Then, once installed, hickory flooring is simple to maintain.  Just sweep with a soft-bristled broom weekly and use a dry mop periodically to clean away stains and smears. Consult your product's Warranty, Installation, and Care Guide for specifics.
