Herringbone wood flooring is the conventional style or pattern for laying parquet blocks. The blocks of flooring are much smaller than normal flooring planks and have been designed to create the distinctive 'herringbone' zigzag pattern. You will fit the blocks of flooring together to provide 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 creating a 'V' shape.

The main difference between both styles of flooring is the following:

  • The ends of chevron planks are cut at a 45 degree angle.
  • Herringbone planks are cut at a 90 degree angle.
  • Chevron flooring makes a zigzag design pattern, coming to a point at the top of each zigzag.
  • Herringbone flooring still has a zigzag pattern but you will see it is more of a staggered effect.

Both chevron and herringbone can be found in various species of wood with different surface finishes. They will both offer you a timeless and classic appearance and are becoming increasingly popular again.
