Case Study: Glantz Residence


Courtney Glantz worked with the Carlisle team at the Chicago showroom as part of a large kitchen remodeling and addition project to her traditional Cape Cod style home.

The home, while beautiful, was having some growing pains, and the family needed a little more space.  Courtney’s eye for design and detail provided the inspiration for the decor within this new, improved footprint – including Carlisle White Oak Floors.

The wide planks and light color fit the character of our home and family perfectly. My toddler and I still will walk around and pick out our favorite planks. They all have such unique, handcrafted character.

Her primary goal was to create more living space with an addition to the kitchen and family room areas. During this process, they decided to install new wide plank flooring throughout the entire first floor to provide a seamless and elegant look.

When selecting a floor, Courtney wanted something that would stay true to the Cape Cod exterior but also maintain a classic look, with a farmhouse twist.


“When it comes to design, simply stick to the character of your home and the character of your family. Then, you can never go wrong.”
