It’s true, an authentic, aged and well trafficked herringbone timber floor is a piece of art and can be the centrepiece of even the grandest of rooms. Thankfully many of these traditional floors are being discovered and lovingly restored to their natural beauty within all types of buildings. Shockingly, many of these floors were covered with concrete, screed, underlay or other types of materials, rather being displayed and lived with. Of course, we don’t all have the benefit of living in such a historic property or have the budget for a bespoke new parquet floor, but the herringbone design really is achievable to all, no matter what type of home you have.
As a manufacturer of floorcoverings, we understand the importance for all types of floor designs, from the traditional to the contemporary and from the warmest tones to the coolest hues. It takes all sorts to suit all tastes and no taste is wrong! Here, we showcase a selection of herringbone floor designs, simply created with modern materials. All of these designs are pretty much available off the shelf and can be installed quickly without the need for too much upheaval.
You’ll see that the herringbone design can be used to create very different moods, depending on the floor colour, size of plank or surrounding interior scheme and furniture. We hope you enjoy and find this useful in demystifying the achievability of herringbone.
