Endless Stain Color and Finish Options
No Matter the Color, We Have It
At Carlisle, we have always considered color the final step in the floor design process, something to be considered only as an accent to the beautiful wood that we spent endless hours crafting. But to many, color is at the forefront, after all, should the floor color we choose to complement our cabinetry, countertops, paint, appliances or matches the trim or light penetration of the room? The truth is both are correct. Color can be a complicated process when chosen first because many colors may not be achievable on some woods, grades, or textures. In many cases, color may not be the most critical choice in the design process. In most cases, board width, character, and grain pattern uniquely defined by a specific species must be considered before you can set the proper tone. For example, a 12″ wide hickory floor with a brushed texture is a lot different than a 4” wide Cherry floor free of knots…even if both of them are stained the same color.
