This year has provided us with many opportunities to renovate our homes in ways we may not have considered before. This year has been about redefining our style and stepping outside of our comfort zone. As a result of this, new trends have arisen and took the interior design industry by storm. This is the first blog in a collection in which we look back over the top trends of 2020, starting with our favourite…herringbone flooring!
History of Herringbone
Herringbone flooring originally featured in big grand houses in the 1700s and quickly was associated with prestige. The name comes from the unique plank design closely resembling the bones of a herring fish and dates back as far as the Ancient Roman Empire (but we won’t bore you with the details). Jumping to the present day where parquet flooring patterns are some of the most sought-after floorings in the interior design industry with herringbone and chevron leading the way.
Beauty of Herringbone
The sheer beauty of herringbone is what makes it one of the most unique floors about. Each plank enhances the colours of the wood beautifully and when they’re places together these colours blend together seamlessly, meaning no two floors are the same. Due to innovation in flooring, these unique designs can now be replicated on Luxury Vinyl Tiles and Laminate so no matter your flooring preference you can have herringbone flooring anywhere!
The possibilities are endless when it comes to herringbone. It is historically known to be used in old fashioned grand mansions so the class it exudes is limitless. The different variations of materials and colours herringbone come in makes it easier than ever to incorporate it into a more modern setting. In our previous blog, we talk a lot about how grey flooring has risen in popularity if we combine the two together, we get something really special.
If you have more of a traditional kind of style, then the warmer toned herringbone floors will be the one for you. These warm shades look beautiful against lighter furniture and really lift the whole interior of a room. This is perfect for a room such as living rooms and kitchens.
