Timeless Visual Impact 

The distinctive herringbone pattern creates a sense of elegance and sophistication, making a striking visual statement in any space. It is named after the way the planks are arranged in a zigzag pattern, which resembles the bones of a herring fish. Herringbone flooring is known for its elegant and sophisticated look, and it can be found in homes of all styles, from traditional to modern. The interlocking design adds a touch of visual interest and depth to the floor. Whether used in a traditional or contemporary setting, herringbone flooring elevates the overall ambiance of a room, imparting a sense of charm and character.

It also brings a natural beauty to any room. It is available in various types of wood, allowing the natural grain patterns and characteristics of the material to shine through. Our range includes over 250 floors including Albi Honey Oak Herringbone; a luxurious laminate wood floor or the solid wood White Oak Tumbled Wood Block Double Smoked & Oiled flooring where the tumbling process gives the floor a distressed aged-look and has beautiful light coloured areas within the boards, adding to the overall character of this truly unique floor.

The warmth, texture, and organic appeal of wood flooring create a cosy and inviting atmosphere, enhancing the overall ambiance of your home.

Long-Lasting Benefits

Herringbone wood flooring creates a stable and long-lasting floor and with our expert craftsmanship preventing movement and the possibility of gaps or warping. This durability makes herringbone flooring an ideal option for high-traffic areas such as hallways, living rooms, and commercial spaces. It can withstand the daily wear and tear of foot traffic, as well as the weight of furniture, ensuring its longevity with proper maintenance. 

It is a versatile option too, regardless of whether the space is rustic or modern, herringbone flooring seamlessly integrates into different décor themes, effortlessly complementing different colour schemes and furniture choices making it a long-lasting choice without compromising on design. 

Unique Craftsmanship

The enduring popularity of herringbone flooring is also attributed to its time-tested craftsmanship. This flooring style has been employed for centuries, showcasing a rich history and traditional artistry. The meticulous installation process requires skill and attention to detail, resulting in a floor that is not only visually appealing but also a testament to the craftsmanship behind it. 

In addition to its visual impact and natural beauty, herringbone wooden flooring also has practical benefits. The diagonal arrangement of the planks creates an optical illusion that can visually expand the size of a room. This aspect is particularly beneficial for smaller spaces or areas with limited dimensions, as the pattern can make them appear larger, longer, or wider, depending on the orientation of the planks. This visual enhancement makes herringbone flooring a smart choice for those seeking to maximise the perceived spaciousness of their living areas.
