The Nature of Hickory

August 17, 2016
Wood cabinetry, like Cherry, Maple, Hickory and Oak, has once again returned as a top trend in new and remodeled kitchens due to its organic appeal and copious amount of design options. When clients are in search of a dramatic wood appearance, Hickory is one of best options since it naturally showcases various textures and wood grain, along with beautiful coloring especially when stained or painted. According to RICKI Research, 15 percent of the designers poled have seen the trend for Hickory wood move upward in the past year. Wellborn Cabinet, Inc. offers a variety of standard paint options for Hickory. Hickory wood showcases beautiful unique markings when painted and has become a popular option for an accent on an island, hood or hutch due to how it brings an intriguing texture and natural element to contemporary and transitional designs. Wellborn Cabinet, Inc. is continuously looking for ways to meet the market demands and with variety always being one of the primary requests, the company added 20 of their existing door styles to their Hickory lineup, which only hosted 7 door styles in 2015. The species also boasts over 30 finish combinations, giving Hickory the same amount of design options as its rival, Oak. “Wellborn Cabinet decided to make this addition to our lines to round out our door style availability in our species,” said Stephen Wellborn, Director of Product and Research Development for Wellborn Cabinet. “We want our customers to have the ability to select Hickory without having to change their desired door for their cabinetry.” Wellborn Cabinet’s Premier Series, Estate Collection, and Elegant Bath Collection will offer these additional door styles in Hickory. This not only offers a diverse selection for customers to choose from, it also provides various quality and price point options.
