Elevate your interior with a herringbone pattern wood floor
A herringbone pattern wood floor can add a great deal of visual interest and warmth to any interior. Herringbone flooring is one of the oldest parquet patterns, originally found in the castles, palaces and homes of 16th-century European aristocrats. Today, herringbone pattern wood flooring is found in beautiful homes all over the world and is one of the most popular choices in wood floor patterns.
At Carlisle Wide Plank Floors, we offer lots of options for herringbone pattern wood floors as well as floors with Chevron, Versailles and other custom parquet patterns – all built in our custom shop and available in pre-assembled sections or individual pieces.
What is a herringbone pattern wood floor?
A herringbone pattern wood floor is made with individual rectangular planks that are equal in width and length, and where each board meets another at a right angle. The result is a broken or staggered “zigzag” pattern that has a great deal of visual appeal.
What is a wide plank herringbone pattern wood floor?
A wide plank floor uses floorboards that are much wider – often 4” to 12” – than standard commercial flooring. A wide herringbone flooring adds even greater visual appeal to a room.
Why choose a herringbone pattern?
A herringbone pattern in a wood floor provides a great sense of movement and visual interest, adding a feeling of luxury and elegance to any room.
It possible to install prefinished herringbone wood flooring?
Yes. Prefinishing a patterned wood floor enables the planks to be cut, sanded, stained and sealed at the manufacturer’s facility under ideal conditions. A prefinished floor can be installed more quickly and easily and enables the homeowner to avoid the mess of finishing a floor on site.
Can engineered floors be installed in a herringbone pattern?
Yes. In fact, Carlisle offers two collections of engineered floors with herringbone patterns – the Studio Herringbone Collection and the Manhattan Herringbone Collection. These selections of engineered white oak herringbone flooring are ideal for installation below grade, over radiant heat, on concrete slab or in locations with higher levels of relative humidity
