Is your home feeling a little dull? Or are you simply tired of the same? Maybe you want to add an element of luxury to your renovation. Well, you could do worse than to consider herringbone timber flooring!
Dating as far back as the Roman Empire, herringbone has long been a popular pattern of flooring. Herringbone flooring is characterised by a zig-zag pattern that draws the eye through a room and adds distinctive character to any space.
Where to lay it?
Herringbone flooring is extremely versatile and can serve a variety of stylistic purposes within a home. Herringbone works great in hallways and entranceways, giving a grand first impression of your home and allowing the boards to lead guests through the space.
Introducing patterns can really set a home apart, and even more when herringbone and straight planks are contrasted. This allows for the transition between spaces to be significant and set the tone for different living areas through the colours and patterns of the flooring. Using both herringbone and straight planks in this way can juxtapose more traditional parts of your home with contemporary spaces.
It’s important to acknowledge the identity of different spaces within your home and what they mean to you. This can be done through the selection of furniture and wallpaper, as well as through the flooring. Herringbone is great way to pay homage to a traditional part of your home or signify a space as having a more formal atmosphere, such as a dining room or study.
