Newsflash: there’s been a 70% increase in homeowners searching for herringbone designs online. Adding visual interest as well as character to the home, herringbone flooring creates the illusion of space, particularly in small rooms and hallways.
So why are homeowners going crazy for herringbone flooring? Sarah Escott, Design Manager at Amtico, explains.
“One of the most popular of our Amtico Parquet patterns is herringbone,” she says. “Creating instant impact, this pattern draws the eye with the herringbone flooring taking centre stage. Homes will always vary in their design, and these patterns add elegance, heritage, texture and colour to a floor. Be it modern or traditional, refined or rustic, large or small-scale, we consider our Parquet patterns a classic surface for living spaces. Plus, with the breadth of styles we offer, the choice of Amtico Signature, Spacia or Form will reflect individual style.”
Jon Flannigan, Product Manager at Kersaint Cobb, agrees. “Traditional wool floorings such as herringbone flooring designs give a crisp, classic effect,” he says. “But you can bring them up to date by having a colour running though the design. Herringbone will refresh the appearance of a room, enhancing its space and elegance with its traditional colours. It will perfectly match whatever design is decided on throughout the home.”
