If you are thinking of putting in new floors in your home, incorporating herringbone pattern onto your floor or wall is an easy & cost effective way to add instant impact to your interior. The herringbone pattern is a classic and we all know how appreciated herringbone floors are. Although there are variations of this pattern, it’s always easy to identify it. There is some misperception that it’s usually the older, traditional homes that will feature this type of flooring but this doesn’t necessarily mean that modern homes can’t take advantage of this feature as well. Installing the herringbone floor is actually pretty easy.

By laying out the boards in a herringbone pattern, one does not incur any extra expense in materials, however, the labour cost may increase slightly to account for the setup, depending on the type of materials used.

Allow the wooden flooring to stand out. You can do that by keeping the rest of the materials, colours and finishes simple and making sure there’s cohesion throughout, even if there are strong contrasts.
