Hello Herringbone

Hello Herringbone

Goodbye plank floors . . . not quite but the love story with Herringbone floors continues!

We have seen a huge increase in requests for pattern floors but mostly the classic Herringbone pattern.

Although Herringbone is having a moment in the sun, this pattern dates back to ancient Greece and Roman times , with the Romans using Herringbone pattern in their roads to provide a durable road surface.

Did you know that the name ‘Herringbone’ references the skeleton of a fish? have a look below and see how the classic pattern mimics the skeleton of a Herring fish!



Herringbone pattern can be very traditional, perhaps with a border and feature strip that is finished on site . . .

Or Herringbone can give a much more contemporary look when you combine large blocks without a border . . .

So, the world is your Oyster to create a very unique look for your project using a Herringbone pattern.  Or why not look at other pattern floors such as Chevron, or a continuous Versaille weave . . .
