hickory hardwood flooring

At Floor Coverings International Metro East, we help families in the greater O'Fallon, Edwardsville, and Belleville area find their dream hardwood floors. Hardwood has long been the most cherished flooring option because of its strength and beauty. Although oak, maple, and cherry are the most popular hardwoods in Belleville, some homeowners are searching for a distinct hardwood that makes a lasting impression. For those customers, we recommend hickory.

Rustic Beauty

Hickory is prized for its authentic, natural look. This hardwood has colors ranging from almost white to medium brown, much like white oak, however, hickory is unique because of its unique color grading. One piece of hickory might have both the lighter and darker extremes. This makes every piece of hickory hardwood unique and interesting.


Another major advantage of hickory is its durability. With a Janka hardness score of 1,820, hickory is one of the hardest domestic hardwood species that we carry at Floor Coverings International Metro East. This makes it a great option for busy families with young kids, as well as pet owners. You can rest assured that hickory hardwood will stand up to generations of wear and tear.


We carry many varieties of hickory, so you’re sure to find the perfect fit for your home. A hand scraped or distressed hickory feels right at home in a rustic aesthetic. It is available in strip, but many Belleville homeowners prefer hickory in wide plank because its unique color grading can feel busy.
