Herringbone oak flooring, also called parquet block flooring, is one of the most popular designs today and recognizable hardwood flooring. Herringbone flooring is very similar to chevron flooring – the main difference is that herringbone flooring is rectangular planks, while chevron boards are cut at an angle. Our herringbone oak flooring is made from the highest quality European oak. The construction of engineered oak flooring consists of two layers; the top layer is a thin slice of solid oak wood and the bottom layer is a birch plywood. The layers make this product much more stable than a regular hardwood solid flooring. Parquet oak flooring is suitable for underfloor heating. These floorboards can also be brushed.
The herringbone pattern is actually similar to the layout of a fish bone, but other models of the same wooden board can be laid. A popular method of laying is the diagonal herringbone when the pattern is laid on the diagonal of the room. Another method is double herringbone – two boards laid each way instead of one. Basket weave patterns may also be achieved. In addition to herringbone oak flooring, we also sell chevron oak floors and more traditional 1-strip plank floors in engineered as well as solid wood constructions.
