56 Elegant And Eye-Catchy Herringbone Floor Ideas

Elegant And Eye Catchy Herringbone Floor Ideas cover

Beautiful floors, especially hardwood ones, are a crucial part of any home’s design and they are a decision you make once and will live with for years to come. They can change the whole look of the room and even set the tone. Among such floors are herringbone ones: they have a flair and make a statement from the moment you walk in the door which is perhaps what you are looking for! It’s a unique design element that you don’t see every day so it looks custom and high-end while giving your home lots of warmth and character.

What Are Herringbone Floors Pros And Cons?

Herringbone floors are sure to have impact in the space, and they will bring that wow factor and besides, they are timeless. Their amazing look and the vibe they bring are their main advantage.

As for the disadvantage, I can name just one: herringbone floors are expensive, especially when it comes to wood flooring. All wood flooring is a premium price, but when you add herringbone, it complicates the installation process and requires more material because of the pattern, thus making it even more expensive. You can expect to pay about 30% more for herringbone wood floors than traditional wood flooring because it requires more labor cuts and time to install. This is definitely an investment you have to be willing to spend to get the extra wow factor herringbone flooring offers.

Where To Make Herringbone Floors?

Herringbone floors look best when showcased in larger areas or rooms so you can really see the striking pattern. They are beautiful in a large foyer that leads into a great room so you can take in the beauty and design of the whole home as soon as you walk in the front door.

You don’t have to install herringbone wood floors in your entire home. In fact, they look best when used in only certain spaces so they feel special rather than overwhelming. Oftentimes just installing them in an office or a kitchen is enough to give you the statement without feeling the need to keep them going throughout the rest of the house. By installing them in just an office it adds a pop and makes you really notice and appreciate them in the space.

The herringbone inlay in a foyer is a perfect way to include herringbone in a small way. This gives the entrance personality and a design feature that stands out, without the hefty labor costs that can really add up if you went with herringbone floors in the entire great room and kitchen area.

As for herringbone tile floors, they can be installed literally everywhere, and they are more often used in bathrooms and kitchens to make them more eye-catching. The durability of this type of herringbone floors is higher. Get inspired by both wood and tile herringbone tile floors below!
