Herringbone wood flooring is the conventional style or pattern for laying parquet blocks. The blocks of flooring are a lot smaller than regular flooring planks and have been designed to create the distinct 'herringbone' zigzag pattern. You will fit the blocks of flooring together to give a staggered zigzag pattern. The ends of the planks are left at a 90-degree angle so you will stagger the pattern as opposed to make a 'V' shape.
Chevron wood flooring will give you a beautiful chevron or 'V' pattern. It has been designed specifically to create this style of flooring when installed. The individual planks of flooring are much shorter and typically narrower than typical planks. The ends have been cut at a 45-degree angle so that the chevron pattern can be created, where the planks come together into a point.
The main difference between the two designs of flooring is the following:
Both chevron and herringbone can be found in different species of wood with different surface finishes. They will both offer you a timeless and classic look and are becoming much more popular once again.
