Customizing your Chevron floor
One of the greatest pleasures of designing a floor at Carlisle is the ability to customize your Chevron wood floor to make it a truly one-of-a-kind surface.
Choosing your hardwood
Each hardwood species has its own personality, determined by variations in hues, grain patterns and density of the wood. Hickory floors, for example, produce incredibly strong floors and offer hues that range from lighter blonde to darker brown. Ash floors have striking grain patterns and rich nutty brown or light blonde hues, while White Oak features dramatic grain patterns and hues from beige to nutty brown. Cherry hardwood is known for its lustrous red tones, while Walnut is prized for its rich chocolate hues.
Determining a grade
We offer several proprietary grades that allow you to choose floors with more character and variation in color, knots and mineral streaks, or to choose floorboards that have less character and offer more consistency and clarity.
Selecting the width
The floorboards in a Chevron floor pattern are necessarily cut at equal width and length – typically 4” wide and 20” long – but you have the option of selecting different widths and lengths to create a Chevron design that is uniquely your own.
Our craftsman can use a variety of handmade surface treatments that give new wood the appearance of floorboards fashioned a century or more ago and that have been lived on and walked on for generations.
Picking a color
We offer stains in a virtually unlimited assortment of color possibilities and can match the color of almost any item you submit.
