OAK CHEVRON & HERRINGBONE
Handcrafted patterned floors are witnessing a real resurgence and remain very popular. They can add a new dimension to an otherwise plain square space. These bespoke wood floors can be designed for each individual’s requirements using any of our hardwoods or softwoods. We supply this flooring partially prepared or fully prepared, with rolled edges also an option.
Chevrons patterns are achieved by cutting short edges of equal size wood pieces at a precise angle. Placing these angles together point to point creates a continuous zigzag pattern. Herringbone pieces are also equal size wood pieces but kept straight edged on short side making them perfect rectangles. These rectangles are placed short side to one end of the long side and then repeated. Visually this pattern looks like a zigzag but is more complex in design. Placement along the longest visual point in the room typically creates a centred long zigzag, elongating the room.
These designs will require a specialist fitter, which we can recommend, as the patterns require total accuracy in the crown lines when fitting this will prevent patterns lines during fitting. A truly striking floor skilfully crafted where the only boundary is your imagination.
