More about Herringbone Parquet

What is Herringbone Parquet?

Herringbone parquet refers to a certain design of flooring which recreates a zig zag pattern. This gets its name from the natural pattern found in fish bones, particularly herrings. Herringbone flooring typically features small boards which make up this popular geometric pattern. This is different to regular engineered wood flooring which will be composed of longer planks which are usually laid vertically or horizontally.

The Benefits of Engineered Herringbone Flooring

For decades, Herringbone Parquet has been considered a highly popular flooring choice for its elegant, luxurious design. The pattern allows further style options and adds a little more excitement to a room than traditional floors. Herringbone flooring perfectly suits both traditional and modern designs, so will blend seamlessly in whichever room you decide to lay it in.

As this flooring is created with engineered wood, it requires less maintenance than a standard solid wood floor and comes at a fraction of the price. Therefore you can benefit from a real wood effect with additional outstanding wear and tear benefits.

How to Lay Herringbone Flooring

A Herringbone wood floor may seem complicated to install, however it’s no more complicated than a regular engineered wood floor. Simply carry out the following steps:

  • • First and foremost, prepare your subfloor by making sure it is clean and dry. It’s recommended with this type of flooring to install underlay for extra insulation and sound proofing. Read our guide on how to install underlay.

  • • Once you’ve installed your underlay, separate your herringbone flooring planks into two piles: left hand planks and right hand planks. You can tell these apart by which side of the plank the groove is on.

  • • To create the classic Herringbone pattern, a left hand plank and a right hand plank should be laid at a 90 degree angle to form a joint.

  • • Then, lay your boards next to these boards following the pattern until the floor is covered.

  • • For further information on herringbone wood floor installation, each of our floors come with its very own installation guide.

How to Maintain Herringbone Flooring

Engineered Herringbone flooring is very straightforward when it comes to maintenance. Like solid wood flooring, it’s important to avoid excessive water. So, use a damp mop while cleaning, but ensure the water is properly rung out. After cleaning, remember to dry your flooring thoroughly so avoid any swelling in the wood.

To get rid of any crumbs or dust, use a soft broom or a hoover, as hard bristles might leave scratches. For more information on maintenance read our guide on How to Care for Engineered Wood Flooring.
