My husband and I are building a new home. The main flooring will be hickory....Is a light wood with some very dark mixture in the grain...

I'm wanting a color that will make the wood "pop". Any suggestions?

Thanks!!!

It's my experience that hickory tends to have more muted grayed undertones. It's hard to use brighter and clearer colors without making the wood look dull. Try using misty or cooler colors to keep the wood from looking muddy. Midtone soft greens, muted coral/oranges, periwinkles, there are probably more to choose froom than you think!

You know, I still don't understand people's motivation to delete their accounts. I mean, very rarely I can understand it, but usually it just seems senseless to me.

I haven't been a part of this community for very long, but it is sad to see some people go. Ricster in particular drew my attention here. He was always kind to me and I am sorry his account is deactivated. I do wish he and I could've became friends.
