What is Herringbone Hardwood Flooring?

Herringbone hardwood floors is actually the name given to some pattern made by parquet block flooring. A lot of men and women call parquet block flooring, herringbone flooring since that it the hottest design pattern that is made.

Parquet blocks of floors are much smaller than the normal planks. This allows you to create geometric patterns with your flooring. Herringbone is the most distinctive and recognisable pattern made with parquet blocks.

What does herringbone flooring look like?

The herringbone pattern generates a'V' shape. Each block of floors is laid out in a 45-degree angle to the next.

What you may find particularly relevant is the color and grain pattern of your herringbone flooring will be based on the varieties of wood you choose. The most ordinary and common species of wood floors is Oak. Natural Oak will give you a gold tone. However, you can acquire pre-stained Oak in various different shades, or you might opt for unfinished cubes and add a color stain and oil yourself. There are so many options available. Here are some of our most popular:

  • Organic Oiled Oak Parquet Block
  • White Oak Parquet Block
  • Grey Oak Parquet Block
  • Unfinished Oak Parquet Block
  • Cappuccino Oak Parquet Block

How do I care for Herringbone hardwood flooring?

Looking after any kind of wooden flooring is simple, and herringbone is no different. Once it has been installed you will want to keep it looking its best. Be careful not to damage your herringbone floor. Always remove outdoor footwear before walking around the floor and wipe away spills immediately. We always recommend using felt protector pads on the bottom of furniture to prevent unwanted scratches.

Cleaning is straight forward. First of all, sweep your floor with a soft brush on a regular basis. As a result, this will eliminate dirt and dust from the surface. Lastly, clean your floor with a wooden flooring cleaning solution and microfibre mop. We recommend using Bona Spray Mop.

What is a lacquered finish?

A lacquer is usually a polyurethane coating applied to a wooden flooring. It covers the pores of the wood floor and forms a hard, robust coating which effect like a protective shield for the wood from dirt and moisture. The difference between it and oil is that it sits on the top of the wood, it doesn’t sink in like oil. Lacquers should provide several years of protection for your floor, depending on the foot traffic.

Lacquered floors are really easy to care. You can keep them clean with just a broom, vacuum cleaner or micro-fibre mop and wipe the dust away. As with oil, lacquer also comes with a selection of finishes, such as gloss, matt, silk matt and extra matt. A lacquer finish is great for rooms where you anticipate a high foot traffic and you want a glossy finish. It’s important to remember that it’s water resistant,not a fully waterproof! Nowadays lacquer is available in every sheen level, similarly to oil, making it hard to tell the difference between the two finishes.

Lacquer from other side have the trend to show scratches easier than an oiled surface, and this is making it less ideal for pets, but this is easily fixed with a simple sanding and refinishing. Lacquer is the toughest of the finishes available, used commonly in dance studios, gyms and village halls. It can take a lot more punishment than oil, but due to sitting on the surface rather than seeping in, the floor underneath can become vulnerable to damage again once this has worn away.One of the top benefits about lacquer finished wood flooring is spills, if they’re cleared up reasonably quickly they won’t cause damage to your floor by seeping in!
