FAQs

Herringbone flooring often falls under the Parquet flooring category and has been a popular choice of flooring design since the 1600s.

Herringbone flooring is the classic rhythmic patterns of herringbone weave that create a nostalgic atmosphere in the home and designed to look and feel just like the real thing.

What is parquet flooring?

Parquet flooring consists of individual identical sized pieces that are organised to make a geometric mosaic pattern. This type of flooring is available in a range of patterns including chevron and herringbone parquet flooring, all of which come in multiple different shades, styles, and finishes.

The name parquet originates from the French word parchet, a term that can be traced back all the way to the 17th century. In the early days, parquet flooring was mostly used to replace marble which demanded constant cleaning and had a tendency to rot the joists underneath the floor. Nowadays however, parquet flooring is a lot easier to mass produce, meaning they no longer come with a big price tag. This has made them a much more affordable and popular option for many homeowners.

How is parquet flooring installed?

There are a couple of different options when it comes to installing LVT parquet flooring. It will depend on whether the fitting system is butt jointed or click lock. If the floor is butt jointed, an adhesive is used to bond the flooring directly to the subfloor. Whereas if the flooring has a click lock system, you won’t need any glue, it simply clicks together and is free-floating over the subfloor.

What rooms is parquet flooring suitable for?

Parquet floors can look beautiful in the majority of rooms in a home. However, the more decorative appearance of herringbone flooring means it is especially well-suited to reception rooms and entrance halls.

Is parquet flooring expensive?

LVT parquet flooring is a highly affordable style of flooring and the luxurious feeling it will bring to your living room, bedroom, or kitchen is sure to add value to your home. The overall cost of fitting your new floor will depend on factors like the type of pattern you choose, what underlay you use, and whether you want underfloor heating. Also, the maintenance costs of this type of floor are much lower than the likes of carpet as these need regular cleaning and attention to stay fresh.

What is parquet flooring made from?

Traditionally parquet flooring comes in either solid or engineered wood, as the names suggest solid wood is made up of one species of wood and engineered is a hybrid of both solid wood (wear layer) and several layers of plywood. Engineered parquet wood flooring works well with underfloor heating as it allows heat to be transferred without warping or shrinkage, which solid wood could suffer from.

What parquet flooring patterns are there?

The most common pattern for parquet is the traditional single herringbone style, or the closely related, double herringbone parquet flooring. However, there are multiple other patterns for you to choose from including brickbond and basketweave. You could also add handcrafted design panels for a more elaborate look.

Another option could be to combine flooring styles in a plank and herringbone mix. This comes with the benefits of adding interest and dividing an open space room into distinct areas. Creating a border will help to hide uneven walls and complement the minimalist style, whilst ladder or bookend patterns rotate the battens to a 90-degree angle to produce a wide border that looks stunning in bigger rooms.
