Homes in Herringbone

It is a rare occasion that I come across hardwood floors I don’t like, but there is a common trait among those I do love. Herringbone style hardwood floors are a classic choice that can be used in many different types of decor. Personally speaking, I love very dark hardwood stains in a herringbone setting. They provide the perfect contrast and chic backdrop to any color or texture in any home.  As you can see from the images below, herringbone floors add automatic life to a room through subtle pattern, dimension, and design.

Notice how the herringbone is just placed within the hallway and the remainder of the room is traditionally horizontal. This is common in many homes. A little bit of herringbone goes a long way.
