Herringbone, also sometimes known as parquet or chevron flooring, is a timeless and stylish pattern that has recently re-entered the spotlight as a fantastic flooring option that fits a huge range of home decor. Our herringbone laminate flooring offers the famous V-shaped flooring pattern in a wide range of colours, hues, wood styles and materials.
Our laminate flooring herringbone is a great option for your home. Lighter shades, such as our grey herringbone laminate flooring are currently very fashionable and due to their versatility, look fantastic with a wide range of colours of walls, curtains, furniture and rugs. Due to the chevron pattern, herringbone laminate flooring is a great choice for hallways, or to create natural flow between rooms.
While herringbone flooring can be installed as a DIY project, it may be best left to the professionals. It requires precision and involves laminate pieces laid an underlay, then onto the subfloor in the herringbone pattern. To get a perfect finish, the subfloor needs to be in good condition and completely level. Unlike traditional timber herringbone, the Herringbone collection is installed by working from the centre of the room (string line) to find your starting point, then setting a number of templates at the end of the room in a triangle shape, then simply placing the boards together from one side to the other.
If you intend to lay a Herringbone floor and you want a perfect finish, either engage an installer or seek detailed, step-by-step instructions before commencing installation yourself.
The Beautiful Impact of Laminate Flooring Herringbone
Herringbone laminate flooring utilizes traditional planks that are installed at a 90-degree angle. The result is an arrow-like trend that uniquely points in opposing directions. Through this fascinating design, a sense of movement is introduced throughout the floor. More than that, the flooring becomes a focal point in the space rather than a backdrop. The contrasting flow extends the eye so that the room feels larger and airier. Generally, the herringbone pattern should be used in larger rooms.
One of the many benefits associated with laminate flooring is the wide range of styles and colours that it is available. Whether you are interested in blonde tones that complement a contemporary space, grey tones that incorporate a touch of rustic charm to space or rich tones with a glossy finish that speaks to the room’s sophistication, any rectangular laminate planks can be used. You understandably want to maximize the life of your beautiful new herringbone floor, so choose a quality material that has a thick top layer and a waterproof base layer.
Herringbone laminate flooring can bring a dramatic, upscale touch to your space. The pattern has undeniable appeal, but it may not be suitable for use in smaller rooms or for use in rooms with other busy patterns or design elements. If you are still trying to decide if a herringbone pattern is a good idea for your space, consider researching images of finished projects online so that you can get a better feel for the impact that this pattern style could have on your rooms.
