    No it is full 3/4" planks, However we have a similar floor in another project that was engineered, so it is available.

    Natural finish across Hickory/Pecan is a great choice. Your installers and finishers did a great job.

    Thanks, but you have made my choice more difficult! I would be using cherry wood, but with a walz (think that is the name) fruitwood stain. It almost looks like what the natural stain, in your picture, darkens to. My thought was if you actually stain the cherry a little (fruitwood is one over from natural), it doesn't darken as much as natural cherry, especially if you use a uv protectant and it would stay closer to original stain. Does that makes sense? Really appreciate your help and your good work.

    Cherry is hard. On the plus side, unless you are extremely attuned to color, I don't think there is going to be a huge color difference between the two. I know that when you are comparing them side by side it seems that the difference is large, but when you only have one of them to look at and it is something you look at everyday, most likely you will forget that there was a difference. I don't really even notice the cabinets are darker, except when an issue like this comes up. In fact, your question spurred me to check. Some places the change was even less than in the picture. Also cherry has natural variation in the wood (part of its charm) so the stain is going to take differently and you will have a range of color.

    It darkens quite a bit. I would be very unhappy.

    I have natural cherry cabinets that have a stain that is only a pinch darker than the natural cherry wood. It has only darkened a tiny bit in 5 years. Very pretty wood.

    What is the brand & color of these floors? Where can I buy them?

    The floors are a actual 3/4" hardwood planks in mix of hickory and pecan (very similar woods). They were finished in situ, so it is a lumber product that the hardwood floor installer provided, not a retail brand. That is not to say you shouldn't be able to find them, it is just that i don't have a specific brand. The finish is natural. I am sure a good local installer or supplier could tell you where you could get the wood.

    I don't know about European distribution, but the hood is made by Electrolux. Model # RH36PC60G S. We have been real happy with it thus far. Keep in mind that if you have a really tight construction envelope, you might want to consider providing make-up air at the unit. We have a fan on a switch that provides outside air to the cabinet below the cooktop so the fan vent does not depressurize the house.

    It is a hickory/pecan mix. Hickory and pecan are very closely related and I think the mix is probably more about what is available to get the color mix. The floors have a natural finish and are the standard 3/4" solid plank. In case anyone else is wondering, the cabinets are a natural finish cherry. The beams (and all of the other beams in the house) are douglas fir.
