Why Choose Engineered Wood Herringbone Flooring

Herringbone & Engineered Wood Flooring, A Match Made In Heaven. Here's Why...

Herringbone flooring is one of the most distinctive and recognisable floors on the market. If you want the elegance of a patterned floor but aren’t too keen on Solid hardwood floors, then Engineered Herringbone wood flooring is the one for you and your home.

What is Herringbone Flooring?

Herringbone flooring is one of the most distinctive and recognisable wood floors. Parquet flooring is made up of smaller planks of wood that can be laid in a variety of geometric patterns, with the most common pattern being herringbone. However, it’s important to remember that ‘Herringbone’ refers to the pattern and style of flooring, not the colour or finish. Each plank of wood is cut in rectangles and staggered later. It’s placed this way so that one end of the planks meets another, which forms a broken zigzag.

What is Engineered Herringbone Flooring?

Engineered Herringbone flooring is an Engineered floor that has been installed with a Herringbone pattern. It is strong, stable, and versatile which makes this floor perfect for almost all rooms within your home.

What kind of wood is best for Engineered Herringbone flooring?

Virtually any hardwood can be used for parquet and herringbone, regardless of whether it's 100% solid wood flooring or engineered wood flooring. Choosing the type of wood for your Engineered Herringbone floor usually depends on the colour and type of wood, depending entirely upon your style preference.

Does Engineered Herringbone wood flooring need to acclimate?

We recommend that you acclimate your Engineered wood floors so that they can become used to the conditions of your home before it’s installed. Even though it is more stable than Solid wood flooring, Engineered wood floors will still move slightly so it’s best to let them acclimate before installation. We recommend a minimum of two days between receiving your floor and installing it.

Benefits of Engineered Herringbone Flooring


Engineered wood flooring is extremely durable and has a long lifespan. The wood is made up of multiple layers of plywood that are bonded together and then topped off with a Solid wood top layer. Engineered wood being made in this way makes the flooring incredibly tough and long-lasting.
