Carlisle Wide Plank Floors


Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are safe and well today. We love being with you now more than ever and hope that these posts add a bright spot to your day. We know they add one to ours! Today, we are showcasing one of our most favorite flooring choices: chevron and herringbone floors!


What is the key difference between chevron and herringbone? 

If you want to spot the difference between chevron and herringbone, chevron planks meet in perfect points like a long string of arrows, whereas herringbone planks appear slightly staggered.





We absolutely adore hardwood floors whatever way they come. They’re low maintenance, easy to clean and great for allergies and households with pets. (And kids… Especially during quarantine! Hello, crumbs, paint spills and pencil shavings.)


A fun chevron or herringbone pattern ups the wow factor and instantly sets a room–and a home–apart from the crowd. And, like a good little black dress, stain color, plank width and amount of finish can dress them up or down.



Pattern brings the grain, texture and integrity of a wood floor to the forefront in the loveliest way.

It instantly adds a feeling of depth, age and history to a home–which isn’t surprising since these floors have been used since the 16th century! (If you were wondering if patterned hardwoods were trendy, you can tuck that thought away!)

A wider plank and a less “finished” look creates a charming, casual feel that lends vacation vibes wherever you are. We love this herringbone from Carlisle for a beach house! (It just moved to the top of our wish list!)
