Custom Floor Design

Custom logo hardwood floor example
Custom floor project "Boston Celtics" received the "Best Extreme Makeover 2014" Award from National Wood Flooring Association.

With Czar Floors’ custom designs, you are not limited to the pattern or species combinations shown on this site. Send a sketch, photograph, or written description of your design, and our master craftsmen will complete it to your specifications.

A computerized manufacturing process allows us to recreate the most complex ideas. Corporate logos and family crests are a few examples of what we can accomplish.

"Boston Celtics" medallion presented several challenges that our craftsman had to overcome:

For one, color. The Celtics’ green isn’t just any green. The customer demanded nothing but the truest of Irish greens for the finished product. This required Czar Floors to seek the help of a custom stain shop to develop the green, which took multiple iterations to get just right. The stain also had to soak into the wood deep enough so that the color stayed on-hue through post-installation sanding. The magic depth was a quarter of an inch, achieved with a long period of stain saturation and heat treatment. 

The second issue was caused by Lucky the Leprechaun. Lucky’s walking stick, shoes, basketball, and part of his bowler hat extend outside the medallion circle.

After a couple of weeks of testing stain chemistry and planning the design, Czar Floors installed the medallion in the Massachusetts home. The final medallion uses maple, wenge, oak impregnated with the custom green stain, walnut, and ash. 

Czar Floors developed a unique on-line application, "Floor Designer" to design and estimate custom floors for the whole room. You can set room dimensions, add parquet, medallion, and borders. The application allows you to estimate the cost of the project and share the floor plan via e-mail.

If you have an idea - we can make it.

Start by sending us a drawing or image. If you are customizing an existing product - print the image from the "Large View" link and mark your changes. Mark the areas where you wish to replace the material. Provide as much detail as you can. You may scan your sketch and send it as an email attachment or by FAX. Please mark any special requirements, including size, thickness, finish, etc. Our professional designers will evaluate your idea and will provide you with a price estimate, lead-time, and other recommendations.
You can familiarize yourself with some of the process and terminology by reading our Guide.

Below are some examples of how this process works:

The Barn - custom inlay based on the picture

Another customer sent a photograph of an iconic barn from his birthplace. He wanted to have a wood inlay of the barn to capture his childhood memories.

After several revisions, the customer and Czar Floors approved the design and faithfully recreated the customer's photograph.

After receiving the product, the customer wrote:

"The Barn medallion arrived Tuesday; It is awesome!! You guys did a great job, and it was worth the wait!!"

Forbes Residence

Steve Forbes, Editor-in-Chief of Forbes, a business magazine - wished to have one of his properties renovated with new floors. He chose Czar Floors to design and produce unique floors matching the style and theme of the property.

A custom project like this involves many steps and iterations. It involves samples and drawings, accurate site measurements, and discussions with the client, architects, general contractor, and floor installers. Our designers developed several floor plan renderings for this project.

Floor plans demonstrate floor pattern, layout for each room and provide a detailed, enlarged view of floor elements. Material maps show which wood is used in each area. This is an example of a typical custom, whole-house design.

Mr. Forbes picked his favorite option, and we proceeded to production. Clients like Mr. Forbes expect the best quality and execution. After the floors were produced and installed, Mr. Forbes was pleased with the result.

"Lady Linda" yacht lounge floor

Some projects are more complex than others. For the 187-foot superyacht "Lady Linda," British designer Evan Marshall envisioned a one-of-a-kind wood floor. He wanted a modern "Wave" motif on the floor that would compliment the rest of the yacht's furnishings.

This project presented many challenges. Our goal was to design a custom floor around built-in furniture that could withstand humidity and vibration. Czar Floors was dispatched to manufacture and install this unique flooring. For the wood combinations, the owner chose rare Karelian Birch wood and Hard Maple woods.
We constructed the entire floor as one giant medallion to fit the shape of the room. A specific thickness had to be used to transition to an adjacent carpeted room. We finished the edges of the medallion with a brass strip to protect against chipping. Finally, we mounted the entire floor over an aluminum platform with rubber insulations and springs to dampen the boat's vibrations - the owner wanted his drinks "stirred, not shaken."

Custom Logos & Crests

Czar Floors has a lot of experience developing corporate logos and family crests in wood and stone inlays. Custom engraving can add the names of donors in a subtle manner if this is a gift.
