The traditional herringbone-patterned floor has been around for centuries and is certainly growing in popularity again in recent modern times. It’s a style of flooring that simply stems from the variation of designs possible, which can be created by you, offering a truly unique floor pattern to you and your home.

This traditional type of wooden floor is made up of a modern and elegant twist to liven up the area and add sophistication to any room, particularly in large open-plan spaces. The zigzag pattern gives an illusion of movement, which also gives smaller spaces a sense of spaciousness, depth and exceptional character to the interior.

Solid hardwood herringbone floors combine the luxury of solid wood with the beauty of the herringbone design. Solid oak is a lovely addition to a handmade kitchen.

Engineered herringbone floors are practical and can be used in areas such as the bathroom and kitchen. They don’t warp or buckle under extreme conditions, allowing you to have a stunning, stable, strong and safe underfoot floor.

Laminate herringbone floors allow you to enjoy the stunning beauty and the marvellous practicalities that it has to offer. They feature a tough surface making them ideal for heavy foot traffic and they are moisture-resistant. Laminate floors are very affordable and can withstand stains, scratches, dents and hard knocks.

Vinyl herringbone floors are stunning, hard-wearing and easy to clean, perfect for the kitchen and bathroom where water is. The tough wear layer and UV-coated surface protects the floor from wear and tear, stains, scratches and the impact of falling objects.

We couldn’t wait to kick off our shoes and walk along this beautiful solid herringbone floor in our Upminster project to feel the warmth below. Stunning photographs capture the space perfectly and show just how this type of floor warms up the room and adds natural beauty. This new extension takes the ceiling to new heights filling the whole room with plenty of natural light on that Summers day and a great place to relax in with family and friends.

The vast open-plan space sports the popular zigzag pattern with an added touch of an antique tile flowing along with the L-shaped layout. The island acts as a divider and a place where extra storage and worktops can be found. We added a day pantry for our client too to make a great kitchen idea to organise the kitchen essentials and metallics were added such as stainless steel and chrome to complete the look.

Our client opted for a light washed kitchen floor to match the aesthetics of the Scandinavian style, functional, simple and beautiful. Light coloured hues and wooden features make way for the very much loved Nordic design. What an impressive space!

Our project in Cuffley was also installed with a herringbone floor, but this time in a luxury vinyl tile and a darker hue. This kitchen is one of our favourites within our traditional shaker collection.

The dark walnut finish of the wood flooring accentuates the design aesthetics of the space adding character and warmth to those Winter months. The room lends itself to tell a story with the galley kitchen layout and the perfect kitchen triangle.

The deep, warm grey kitchen cabinets consist of a brown undertone that’s popular in the modern home and creates a homely atmosphere. The colour is full of richness bringing to life the beautiful detail of the exquisite traditional shaker we have built in the heart of Cuffley village.

In amongst the zigzag pattern of the herringbone floor lies an industrial style of metallic metals and prominent lighting. The choice of lights offers our client the perfect mood and task lighting, illuminating the Carrara style worktops and the floor below.
