How to customize floors with design patterns
While hardwood patterns do a lot to create a unique floor, there are even more ways to customize your Carlisle floor.
Selecting the wood
A custom Carlisle floor starts with choosing from our selection of hardwoods, pine or reclaimed wood floorboards. Each species offers a different choice of natural color, grain pattern and density. Red Oak floors, for example, have deep salmon tones in the hardwood and offer a tight, consistent grain, while Walnut floors have rich chocolate hues and more complex grain patterns. Cherry floors come in hues of lustrous deep red with subtle but distinctive flowing patterns in the grain, and Hickory is one of the hardest woods and features lighter blonde and beige to cocoa brown hues.
Choosing a stain
Unlike many flooring companies with limited color selections, Carlisle offers a virtually unlimited assortment of stains. You can choose from our most popular color options or use the Carlisle Custom Color match system to create a unique stain color that’s ideally suited to your interior design.
Texturing or distressing a floor can add an instant sense of character. From Hand-Scraped Edges or Watermill marks to Brushed, Footboard or Timeworn texturing techniques, we offer a range of methods to give your floor the appearance of an antique surface that has been worn by weather, time and foot traffic.
