Patterned hardwood flooring options continue to make a huge impression on the hardwood flooring consumer. The resurgence of these classic, timeless patterns first introduced in the 16th century have now taken on a modern flair and are showing up in homes all across South Florida. Chevron and Herringbone patterns offer versatile, flexible design options that fit both traditional and modern styles. So, what is the difference between Chevron and Herringbone?
A chevron pattern consists of wood planks whose ends are cut on an angle so that they come together to form a straight line. When installed, this zig-zag pattern can make a smaller room look bigger, especially when wider planks are used. It can also add dimension to a square room.
The zig-zag pattern of a herringbone design differs slightly from the chevron in that the ends are staggered, so that the end of one plank meets the side of another and forms a 90-degree angle. Herringbone patterns made with longer planks are emerging as a hot design trend in flooring.
Both of these options work well in both light and dark colors and bring out the beauty in any room. Hardwood is traditionally warm and comfortable, natural and long-lasting, and with the addition of these patterned options – even more stylish than ever!
Traditionally, installing a chevron or herringbone patterned hardwood floor was very labor intensive because it took more time to install and required a high level of precision in the installation. With the introduction of modern technology, many manufacturers can now provide you with ready-made chevron and herringbone flooring boards, making it much easier to install. The possibilities are endless. Of course, Quantum Floors has a variety of products and options to help achieve any look!
