The Herringbone Kitchen Floor Trend

In recent times, herringbone patterned floors have become fashionable again. And with modern materials available such as LVT, the herringbone kitchen floor trend has grown and grown.

For good reason too. Herringbone floors offer a striking appearance. In fact, it is so popular a style that it’s found favour in grand old imperial castles and more modest modern homes alike. But did you know that this style of parquet flooring has been around for more than a century? 


The History of Herringbone

The fascinating zig-zag pattern of herringbone underfoot can be traced as far back as 500 BC when the Romans used this unique style to build roads. Its distinctive appeal and inherent durability then became popular in the houses of European nobility. It quickly became symbolic of great wealth and status. This association has made it synonymous with a sense of luxury, refinement and grandeur. Not surprisingly, you will even find it gracing the floors of Buckingham Palace.


Is It Expensive Then?

Traditionally, herringbone planks were made out of hardwood. As well as timber being a high cost material, it is labour-intensive to install and considered high maintenance. All in all, an expensive choice, which is why only the rich used it.

Thankfully, modern flooring innovations have made provided a wider selection of options. For exanple, Pro-Tek™’s Luxury Vinyl Herringbone provides the authentic feel and look of natural wood but without the disadvantages of solid wood.  A combination of all the benefits of wood with the exceptional performance of engineered vinyl.
