Why we like it?
- Our Charred Oak floor is for those looking for a distressed, dark Herringbone.
- It’s a rustic floor, so has plenty of colour variations, both dark and brown. Plus it also has a distressed bevel (the groove between the floors).
- A Herringbone floor is statement floor and will transform any space. The shape of the boards help make a room flow.
Why you should look elsewhere?
- Herringbone, whilst not as pricey as Chevron, is expensive both from a product and fitting side. Expect to pay around 60% to 70% more for the supply and fit off this floor compared to a straight board.
- Make sure you allow for wastage. Square or rectangular rooms can be ok, but corridors, as the planks are left and right, can have very high wastage. Our advice is allow 15%, but sometimes even more if the area is just a hallway. Speak to us if you need advice on this. There’s nothing worse than being short on flooring in a project.
- Fitting Herringbone is a real skill as many more wood cuts have to be made. The quality of these cuts will dictate the quality of your final floor.
- We recommend Herringbone is glued down when fitted (as opposed to being fitted floating). Only certain subfloors can be glued too, such a ply or a levelling compound, and this means additional works have to be carried out. These are not required when fitting straight board floated.
