Herringbone (or fishbone) wood flooring as it is sometimes known as is a flexible, interesting and stylish alternative to easy board wood flooring. Designed to have a traditional parquet look to it, the good news about herringbone flooring at the 21st century is that you won’t need a craftsman to spend a month in your home to floor or re-floor the tiniest room in the home.
Parquet flooring dates back to the 17th Century and was traditionally made of small blocks of wood that were trimmed by hand and laid, again by hand at a geometric pattern. While herringbone hardwood floors’blocks’ are far bigger than conventional parquet floors the idea is much the same.
In its first days, any parquet flooring could have been created out of solid wood and solid wood alone. Today, while it is still possible to put money into a hand-made good wood parquet floor, it’s much more common to elect for an engineered timber flooring board that comes pre-constructed in your preferred parquet/herringbone style. Among the most well-known versions of the style of flooring today is herringbone engineered wood flooring.
Getting its name from the fact that the routine created resembles a fish or squishy skeleton, herringbone patterns are often found in the fabric industry. Tweeds, knits as well as wallpaper in this design could be found the world over. The detail of the design reveals effectively what’s a broken zigzag, and that’s what distinguishes this layout from chevron, which will meet at the’v’.
