Customizing your luxury wood flooring.
At Carlisle, there are lots of ways to customize luxury wood flooring to give your space a distinctive character and one-of-a-kind appearance.
Wood – Customizing luxury wood flooring begins with your choice of wood. Each species of hardwood offers differences in colors, grain patterns and strength. For example, Ash wood flooring has a striking beauty, great density and unique elasticity that makes it easy to work with. Birch flooring has varying grain patterns that range from subtle swirls to highly figured flames, while Cherry floors are prized for their rich red undertones that mature to a burnished auburn color. White and brown maple floors have clear, hard flowing grain and occasional swirls, while Walnut is known for its rich chocolate hues. In addition to 10 hardwood species, Carlisle offers luxury wood flooring in 3 species of Pine as well as 6 types of reclaimed flooring that has been salvaged from centuries-old barns, homes and factories.
Color – Carlisle luxury wood flooring can be finished in virtually any color of stain. The key is matching each piece of wood with the proper stain for a particular species while also accounting for a specific design scheme. Carlisle stains range from the very light Whitewash Fence to the very dark and smoky Blacksmith stain.
Texture – Texturing or distressing floorboards gives luxury wood flooring an instant sense of character and age. Carlisle techniques for texturing include Hand-Scraped Edges, a technique that re-creates the gentle hand-sculpted appearance from a time before floorboards were manufactured by machines. Hit or Miss marks re-create the saw swirls and kerfs from old-time sawmills, while Brushed and Footworn techniques reproduce the look of wood that has been aged by time, weather and wear.
Pattern – Installing luxury wood flooring with a Herringbone, Chevron, Versailles or custom parquet pattern immediately adds a sense of tailored luxury and personality to any room.
Width – Choosing boards of a consistent width produces a uniform feel while mixing widths can add another level of visual interest.
