I’m in love with herringbone wood floors. They bring such a uniquely dynamic, yet subtle, feel to any large room and looks especially chic with crisp white walls. The earliest examples of parquet floors can be dated back as far as the 16th century in Europe, when wood planks were installed at angles in slightly staggered patterns. Despite it’s classic and timeless appearance, you can create a more modern feel by cutting each plank into longer lengths. And with the abundance of affordable and easy to install wood flooring available these days, like engineered hardwood and laminates, experimenting with patterns can be realistically doable! There are some great tutorials out there, especially with when it comes to vinyl flooring. What do you think? Would you ever incorporate herringbone or chevron wood floor patterns in your home?
