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!
