Summary description:


Hardwood floors are becoming a valuable asset, not only in the real estate market, but also in terms of personal enjoyment. You may have removed some old carpeting to find a neglected hardwood floor, or perhaps you are thinking of installing one. Hickory is one of the most popular choices, although there are some details you should consider before adding or restoring a hickory floor.

Basic Facts About Hickory

Hickory is a common type of wood found across the United States. Boasting a Janka rating of 1820, this wood is considered the second hardest flooring type in the country. Hickory panels boast intricate wood grains, mineral streaks, knots, and color variations within single boards. Wider boards are generally preferred for floors, as it better showcases these patterns.

While harder than many other kinds of wood used for flooring, hickory is more prone to swelling and is less DIY-friendly. This makes hickory floors more expensive to install, but the durability allows this wood to outlast similar floor materials. For these reasons, the wood is prized for a wide variety of home remodeling projects from flooring to cabinets and shelves.

Benefits of a Hickory Floor

Hickory has many benefits that make it more popular than other woods. While these benefits can be summed up in two main categories, those categories are generally considered the most important when planning a long-term home modification.


One of the first things that may have attracted you to hickory is the high aesthetic appeal. Available in a number of options including planks and laminates, this wood has a lighter shade that can brighten a room. With waxing, natural light reflects with a soft, warm glow, adding an element of elegance to your room. The wood grain and knots tend to be much darker than the surrounding wood, making for a very natural look even if you stain or wax the floor.



It can be an overlooked fact that any floor will suffer abuse. Furniture will scrape across the surface, food and drink will spill, foot traffic will add dirt or mud, and natural light may cause fading in time. The hardness of hickory makes it highly resistant to marring. It also holds stain better than many other types of wood, and waxing will increase hickory’s water resistance.
