Handmade Hickory in light brown with sapwood highlights
Kavala floors are made possible by intensive grading of our select premium grade Hickory. The look that our Kavala floors strive for is to showcase hickory’s beautiful brown heartwood by limiting the white sapwood to accent strips along the sides of some boards. The result is a cleaner, more linear look than other natural Hickory hardwood floors.
The distinctive neutral light brown colour that is unique to Kavala is achieved by a subtle surface treatment that mutes some of the warmth naturally present in Hickory’s heartwood, resulting in a natural organic feel perfect for today’s design trends.

The distinctive, unique look of Kavala is primarily due to the strict selection of its hickory planks. Kavala boards are selected to have a medium colour, heavy heartwood pattern with thin trips of sapwood along the edges for accent.
