Herringbone flooring offers a variety of patterns that can be created by arranging the planks in different ways. These patterns not only add visual interest but also allow for creative customization to suit different interior styles and preferences.
- Traditional Herringbone: The traditional herringbone pattern is the most well-known and classic option. It features a diagonal zigzag design created by placing rectangular planks at a 45-degree angle to the walls. Each plank is then placed adjacent to the previous one, resulting in a continuous “V” or “W” shape throughout the floor.
- Double Herringbone: The double herringbone pattern takes the traditional herringbone design a step further by adding another layer of complexity. In this pattern, two planks are laid together to form a wider “V” shape, resulting in a more intricate and dramatic effect. The double herringbone pattern offers a bolder look and can be particularly striking in larger rooms or areas where you want to create a focal point.
- Brick Bond: The brick bond pattern, also known as the running bond or staggered pattern, is a variation of herringbone that offers a slightly different aesthetic. Instead of aligning the planks diagonally, they are laid horizontally and vertically, creating a grid-like formation. This pattern resembles the way bricks are laid in masonry, hence the name. The brick bond pattern provides a more contemporary and linear look while still retaining the charm of herringbone.
- Basket Weave: The basket weave pattern is another variation of herringbone that creates a woven effect. In this pattern, rectangular planks are laid in pairs, with each pair perpendicular to the adjacent pair. The planks alternate between horizontal and vertical positions, resulting in a crisscross pattern that resembles a woven basket. The basket weave pattern offers a unique and textured look, adding depth and dimension to the flooring.
