What is Herringbone flooring? We explore and list the benefits

At some point, you might find it necessary to replace the flooring in your home. Perhaps you want to redecorate, and the current floor wouldn’t fit with your new vision. Or you might find out that there is damage that isn’t possible to repair. If you’re looking for a timeless, elegant design, you might want to consider the option of Herringbone flooring.

The Herringbone style is easy to recognise, with the rectangular blocks of hardwood laid in a pattern resembling a fish’s bone structure, more specifically, a herring. This style of flooring has been around for centuries and is suitable for both residential and commercial buildings. Here are the benefits you should know about before you install Herringbone flooring in your home.

Add Aesthetic Flair To The Interior

The zigzag pattern that the Herringbone flooring offers can light up any room. No matter what your interior design preferences are, the flooring might make a significant impact and bring in a breath of timeless elegance. These days, Herringbone flooring is available in many materials and various colours that can help you to reach any design objectives that you might have. Companies like Floors Direct offer a variety of LVT Herringbone flooring and can help you to find the perfect fit for the needs of your project. Regardless of the colour or material that you choose, there is no doubt that this style of flooring can help you to bring any room to new heights and upgrade its overall appearance.

Take Advantage Of The Flooring’s Durability

One of the most significant benefits that Herringbone flooring can bring to your interior is its durability. If you’re looking for flooring that can last for years to come and doesn’t get damaged easily, then this might be an ideal option for you and the needs of your project. With such flooring in your home, you’ll be able to enjoy precious moments with your family without needing to worry about scratches or spillages that might cause damage to other materials. The thickness of the parquets also makes it possible for you to resurface them when needed without damaging the flooring. Thanks to its durability and longevity, the flooring is ideal for busy homes where families want to enjoy life without having to worry about damaging the floor with the smallest accidents.

Create An Illusion Of More Space In Smaller Rooms

When you want to redecorate a small room, there are many tried and tested tricks that can help you to make the space look bigger. For instance, you might want to consider working with light colours that can make the room seem more spacious. You can also decorate the walls with mirrors that can reflect any natural light coming into the room throughout the day. It’s also often recommended that you equip the area with leggy furniture that can allow the light to spread in every nook and cranny of the room. However, you can also make a significant difference with the choice of flooring. The pattern of Herringbone flooring can help you to make the room look wider and more spacious. And if you choose flooring in lighter colours, you might intensify its impact on the interior.

Enjoy The Easy Maintenance

Another reason why Herringbone is so popular and versatile is its easy maintenance. When you have a family with small children, some spillages are bound to happen. However, with this kind of flooring, you don’t need to panic about the impact such accidents could have on the material. Herringbone flooring is exceptionally easy to clean, and you can swipe any spillages with minimum effort. The flooring also has a protective layer that stops stains from soaking in. Due to these characteristics and the ease of maintenance, you’ll be able to keep your home looking beautiful for many years. Being able to get rid of dust and dirt easily will also allow you to keep your family healthy and safe from allergens.

Conclusion: Bring Timeless Elegance Into The Interior

Herringbone flooring is versatile and can bring more character into any home. With its durability, longevity and easy maintenance, it’s also an ideal solution for families with small children. You won’t need to worry about stains or getting stressed over scratches on the floor. There are many colours and finishes available on the market, so you should be able to find a solution that suits your needs and requirements. Herringbone flooring has been popular for centuries, and the trend doesn’t show any signs of stopping. Use the pattern to bring more timeless elegance into the interior and take advantage of a design that will never go out of style. Before you proceed with the purchase of the flooring, remember to measure the room correctly and conduct thorough research so you can avoid unpleasant situations.
