At Frank’s, we’re hot on keeping up with the latest and most modern flooring trends. Herringbone flooring has been an extremely popular look that our customers are keen to achieve in their homes and we can help!

Where classic patterns and modern trends meet, herringbone flooring is known for its exceptional ability to bring the look of real wood within reach of homeowners without spending a fortune.

The herringbone pattern can be achieved with laminate flooring or LVT and thanks to the easy click-systems that many of our flooring types have, it is DIY-friendly. However, we always recommend our Frank’s Fitters to deliver a flawless job!

What does herringbone flooring look like?

The herringbone style is a type of parquet flooring and actually goes back centuries. It is recognised by its arrangements of rectangles and shows resemblance to the bones of a fish, such as a herring, which is where the name comes from.

Inspired by nature, the herringbone pattern guarantees to make a statement in any room when laid. 

Does the herringbone pattern make a room look bigger?

Herringbone floors effortlessly make any sized room look bigger, particularly narrow spaces like hallways due to its pattern. The illusion of movement in the flooring is an amazing space enhancer and will help any room feel refreshed.

If you have a particularly dark room or space in your home you wish to enhance, lighter coloured herringbone is ideal/

Where can herringbone flooring be used?

Due to its versatility, herringbone floors are suitable for installation in almost any room in the house. From your open plan dining to the smallest bedroom in your property, feel free to stylise any space with this beautiful, intricate pattern.

If you wish to install the herringbone style in a bathroom, we wouldn’t recommend using laminate to achieve this look. Instead, install LVT in the herringbone pattern because this material is water resistant and puts up a good fight. 

Is herringbone flooring expensive?

At Frank’s The Flooring Store, we have a wide range of budget-friendly floors to choose from to achieve the herringbone pattern. 

After all, it’s impossible to buy flooring for less anywhere! Plus, we’ll beat any sale price, clearance price or ‘must end Sunday’ price.
