Walnut Flooring

Your floor began its journey over 100 Years Ago, we bring it home to you.

We know how important natural color is when it comes to Walnut. Whether you’re in search of the ultimate in chocolate hues or want to minimize the contrast of lighter-colored sapwood and darker heartwood, Carlisle’s wide plank Walnut will outperform all others. Magnificence begins with the nutritious, well-drained soils of specific regions of the Midwest, where only the most mature trees are harvested and then steamed to maximize the beauty of the natural tannins. The timber is air- and kiln-dried before our own milling process, where it is carefully evaluated by our craftsmen to bring out the inherent beauty of every plank. The result is exquisite Walnut flooring that is naturally reminiscent of mocha, suitable for any design – a rustic country kitchen, a high-rise city loft, an elegantly formal sitting room and everything in between.

Frequently Asked Questions

How hard is an American Walnut floor?

American Walnut hardwood has a Janka hardness rating of 1010, making it softer than most other varieties of hardwood flooring material. Nevertheless, American Walnut is quite durable and with the right care can easily hold its luster and form for decades.

What are recommendations for how to clean an American Walnut floor?

You may clean an American Walnut floor with the same products as any other hardwood flooring surface. A simple mixture of vinegar and water works well (1 or 2 ounces of vinegar to 2 gallons of water), as vinegar has a natural acidity that helps to loosen and wash away dirt and contaminants.

What is a prefinished American Walnut floor?

Prefinished Walnut flooring is fashioned from the same floorboards as unfinished Walnut flooring, but it is sanded, stained and sealed by the manufacturer before it is delivered for installation. Prefinished flooring not only speeds installation but lets the home or business owner avoid the mess of sawdust and stain and the inconvenience of needing to vacate the property for a day or two while the floor is sealed.

Can an American Walnut floor be stained?

Yes. You may stain an American Walnut floor in a variety of colors, though most people prefer stains that result in dark Walnut floors.

What is a Black Walnut floor and how is it different from an American Walnut floor?

Black Walnut flooring is simply another name for an American Walnut floor. Both are made with floorboards cut from American Black Walnut timbers.
