Herringbone Wood Flooring

Herringbone wood flooring has been used in architecture and design for centuries and is the most popular form of parquet flooring in use today. The herringbone pattern is made up of small, rectangular pieces of wood that are arranged in a zig zag pattern to create a V-shape.

The pattern is created by placing two pieces of wood at a 90-degree angle to each other, with one end of each piece pointing in the opposite direction. The process is repeated to create a classic herringbone wood floor.

We create both solid and engineered oak herringbone blocks ranging in length from 300mm to 600mm and from 70mm to 120mm wide, available in a wide choice of colours and distressed treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Herringbone flooring is a popular choice known for its striking, timeless pattern that adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to any room. The zigzag pattern creates visual interest and adds depth to the space. Herringbone flooring is a beautiful, durable, and versatile choice and is easy to clean and maintain.

  • The cost of herringbone flooring can vary depending on several factors such as the type of wood, overall quality and the final finish. Herringbone flooring may be more expensive than other types of wood flooring but can add significant value to your property and can last for decades with proper maintenance.

  • Herringbone flooring can create the illusion of a larger space. The repeated V-shapes of the herringbone pattern can create a sense of movement, making the area feel more dynamic and open. This makes it an excellent choice for those looking to make a small room feel bigger.

  • Herringbone floors can add value to a home or property. Herringbone floors are often associated with luxury and high-end design, and as such, they can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any space. The timeless design of herringbone flooring can also increase the resale value of a property and make it more attractive to potential buyers.

  • The direction in which herringbone flooring should point is a matter of personal preference and can depend on the overall design and layout of the space. Popular approaches to installing herringbone flooring include the following:
    • Parallel to the longest wall: this can help to elongate the room and make it appear larger
    • Diagonal to the room: Installing herringbone flooring on a diagonal can create a dynamic look and add visual interest to the space.

  • There are many alternative patterns to herringbone for consideration. Chevron pattern is similar, but instead of creating a zig zag pattern, the planks are cut at an angle to create a V-shape. This creates a more modern and contemporary look. Other wood floor patterns include geometric, diamond and random width planks. The final choice will depend on your personal style and the overall design aesthetic of your space.

  • Herringbone and chevron patterns are similar but have some key differences in their design. In a herringbone pattern, the planks are cut into small rectangular pieces and arranged in a zig zag pattern. Each rectangular piece is typically cut at a 90-degree angle to the adjacent piece, resulting in a pattern that resembles the bones of a fish skeleton. In a chevron pattern, the planks are cut at an angle to create a continuous V-shape. Unlike the herringbone pattern, the ends of the planks meet at a 45-degree angle, creating a continuous, uninterrupted line.

  • Herringbone flooring can be installed in a variety of colours and materials, making it a versatile option that can fit with a range of design styles. The installation process for herringbone flooring is time-consuming, and it may take longer to install than other flooring options. Herringbone flooring is a beautiful and elegant option, but can be more expensive than other flooring options due to the complexity of the installation process.
