Please show me your stained hickory floors
After two years of planning, we are starting our kitchen remodel tomorrow. I've chosen off white cabinets with a chocolate glaze with a dark wood island.
But I'm having stress over choosing the wood floor (which will be sand and finished). I originally wanted walnut and love that floor, but I have small children and a large dog. So I'm looking at hickory. I want to stain it a medium to darker color. Does anyone have pictures of their sand and finish hickory stained floor? Also, did you water pop it? Thank you in advance for your help!
