Engineered Hardwood Colors

Choosing engineered hardwood colors

When choosing engineered floors today, homeowners have options for a wide range of engineered hardwood colors. From finishes that preserve the natural colors of the hardwood to stains that can take engineered wood colors in any direction, the choice in engineered hardwood colors today is virtually limitless.

At Carlisle Wide Plank Floors, we offer the highest quality engineered floors in the industry, with options for wood species, color, pattern and texture that can turn any engineered floor into a stunning design element that will become a central feature of your home. Our engineered floors work equally well with natural colors and with the dark hardwood floor colors and grey color hardwood flooring that are currently on trend. Our design consultants can work closely with you to explore all your options for choosing the perfect engineered hardwood colors for your space.

An unlimited selection of engineered hardwood colors

At Carlisle, engineered hardwood colors essentially fall into two categories: natural colors and color achieved through stain applications.

The only limit to the variety of possible stain colors at Carlisle is your imagination. That’s because our Carlisle Custom Color system allows us to match the color of almost any item you send into us. Simply submit a paint swatch, a piece of fabric or a bit of tile, for example, and we’ll identify the color and match it exactly to create a stain color that is all yours. That means, rather than settling for a color that is in the neighborhood of what you envision, you can create a floor with the exact hue you want.

If you don’t have a specific color in mind, you can find inspiration in our traditional stain colors. This collection of classic stains includes the light Whitewashed Fence, the warm Gingerbread stain, the rich pumpkin pine patina of Copper Mine, the rich roasted color of Vermont Coffee Bean and the dark and smoky feel of Blacksmith.

Many of our customers prefer engineered hardwood colors that preserve the natural look of the wood. We achieve this with a clear or amber finish that enhances the personality of the floorboards and allows the timbers to tell their story over time as each board ages.

Whether you choose a custom color or a natural finish, you can be sure that the hardwood colors in your Carlisle engineered floor will transform your space and set the stage for your life at home.

What are engineered hardwood colors?

Can engineered floors be installed with a pattern?

Yes. At Carlisle, we most frequently install Herringbone and Chevron engineered wood flooring, which both use a zigzag pattern to create great visual appeal and a sense of movement through a room. Versailles engineered flooring is also popular, using a pattern first found in the floors of the famous French palace.

Can engineered floors be treated with texture?

Yes. At Carlisle, our craftsmen can apply texture that recreates the appearance of older floors, adding saw marks and other imperfections or gently wearing down the softer grains to reproduce the look of a floor that has been walked on for generations. Textured engineered wood flooring adds character and warmth to any room.

What are engineered hardwood colors?

Engineered floors are available in a variety of hardwoods that feature a wide range of colors. Engineered hardwood colors include the natural color of the wood species used for the wear layer, as well as the colors that can be achieved by staining the wood.

What are the benefits of engineered floors?

Engineered floors are ideal for installation in places where large changes in temperature, moisture and humidity may occur. Engineered floors can be installed in basements, over radiant heating systems or on concrete slabs. Engineered floors are also appropriate for homes that have higher levels of relative humidity in the summer and average levels of humidity in the winter.

What are engineered hardwood floors?

Engineered hardwood floors are made with a top layer of hardwood, the “wear layer”, that is adhered to multiple layers of a backing material like Baltic Birch. The result is a floorboard with a very strong core that is more resistant to changes in temperature and humidity than solid wood flooring.
