Herringbone Solid Wood Flooring
Herringbone flooring, which can also be known as parquet block flooring, is one of the most characteristic and recognisable hardwood floors around. The word ‘herringbone’ refers to the particular pattern and style that you can make with this flooring. The flooring is self is made from a solid piece of hardwood, which has been manufactured into small blocks of flooring. These blocks of flooring can be laid out in a number of different patterns, but ‘herringbone’ is the most traditional and by far the most popular.
To create your perfect herringbone flooring you can choose a colour (the species of wood) and surface finish to complement your room.
Why should I choose solid herringbone flooring?
Solid herringbone flooring radiates luxury and character and is one of the most popular patterns created with parquet block flooring. It can easily transform any space into a beautiful and elegant room.
If you want a long lasting and durable floor covering that has character and charm, then this could be the floor for you. Herringbone flooring can be found in different species of wood and with different surface finishes. The most popular choice is unfinished Oak herringbone flooring. The surface of the floor will need to be protected with oil or lacquer once it has been installed, but this gives you the opportunity to possibly add a colour stain and then choose your own surface finish, which can help to create a unique and charismatic floor.
