Herringbone flooring in London

Herringbone flooring in London is a very popular pattern, and is found not only on flooring but on wallpaper, clothing, and jewellery. It got its name from its resemblance to the pattern of bones in the herring, and is very similar to the chevron pattern.

Many people ask what the difference is between herringbone and chevron, but Herringbone consists of distinct rectangles which chevron boards are cut at an angle.

What is Engineered wood flooring?

Engineered wood flooring is timber which consists of more than one layer. By placing each layer so that the grain runs at 90°, it becomes virtually impossible for the wood to swell or shrink with changes in humidity, so hence why it dramatically increases its stability.

Furthermore the top layer of an engineered board (the lamella) is solid wood, usually hardwood, and may be anything from 2 to 6mm thick; obviously the thicker the surface layer the more times it can be sanded and refinished to remove the ravages of wear; the thickest wear layers are equivalent to those on solid timber boards. The lamella is securely bonded to one or two further layers – this may be a multi-layered plywood or a sandwich with either a softwood or hardwood core.

Why choose Herringbone flooring in London?

Herringbone flooring is more environmentally-friendly than some solid wood flooring. This is because fast-growing wood species like pine are used for the intermediate layer, with a solid hardwood top layer typically:

  • Oak
  • Beech
  • Maple
  • Jatoba
  • Cherry

In addition, this reduces the amount of valuable hardwood that would be needed for a solid wood floor. Although high-quality engineered wood floors can also be sanded three to four times over the lifetime of the floor, just like a solid wood floor.
