Dramatic material Colors
Hickory cabinets feature dramatic material colors within a piece due to the heartwood and sapwood of this material. The color may range from blonde or white to reddish-brown and dark brown. This naturally contrasting appearance adds to their appeal in many kitchen designs.
Hickory kitchen cabinets feature a smooth, extremely strong, close-grained material with a heavy, flowing grain pattern. Hickory’s grain is usually straight but can be irregular and wavy at times. The material has a rugged appearance and coarse texture. Characteristics include pinholes, knots, burls and color streaks.
