In my dreams I’m renovating a charming cottage complete with gorgeous herringbone floors. Few flooring options spell elegance and European sophistication more than a beautiful herringbone floor. There are a number of ways to customize herringbone floors to fit the style of your home. Here are some beautiful options.
- Tile Bar. For high traffic areas or areas subject to high moisture, a tile is a great way to add in texture and interest with a herringbone pattern. This pattern is applied in a bathroom where the smaller scale fits better into a smaller space.
- Flickr. A polished wooden herringbone pattern is my favorite option as it brings in a warmness and neutrality that helps set the stage for the rest of the room.
- Apartment Therapy. A combination of wooden planks and herringbone tile create a contrasting warmth and coolness in this modern home.
- Style Me Pretty. This painted wood herringbone pattern creates a slick look compared to the historic nature of the space. Painted in a gloss or high gloss, these floors add a visual interest to the space.
- Norm Architects. An unfinished wood herringbone patterned floor is very common in Scandinavian countries. In fact, my downtown Copenhagen studio had one and I loved it! It was versatile and interesting.
- BuildDirect Blog. A brick herringbone pattern is another gorgeous version of this floor style. These days it is used in a more traditional setting, but I’d love to see it mixed in to a more eclectic interior.
- Alessandro Pasinelli. This high glossed wooden herringbone flooring shows how you can add modernity to a traditional pattern with colorful and clean sofas.
- Mannington Commercial. Black and white is another option to create modern and interesting flooring with a simple herringbone pattern.
