There’s a reason hickory has traditionally been the material of choice by cabinetmakers. Touted as a top wood variety for its strength, durability and sheer beauty, hickory flooring by Carlisle has longevity to last from generation to generation. In fact, wood flooring has even made its way into rooms once reserved only for tile – bathrooms and even kitchens, like this elegant Alton, New Hampshire home (see pictures). This high-traffic country kitchen and the hub of the home can now enjoy a rustic-chic style without compromising on practicality. This wide plank hickory collection features a natural, warm Tung oil finish glossing over the charming, characteristic knotty imperfections. From one unique plank to the next, the eye follows the lines through this farmhouse-style kitchen and into the adjoining dining room. In addition to the open-concept design of the house, continuity exists even when it comes to the floors. For details visit Carlisle Wide Plank Flooring.
