Herringbone styles can be seen in a vast array of materials, including fabrics and ceramics – here we will discuss our favorite herringbone products (made from Hardwood) that are available through Europlex:

Old Herringbone floors required a lot of labor on site

Traditionally herringbone patterns would require a lot of cutting and intensive labor.  Thanks to modern finishing and manufacturing techniques, our top brands all produce “out of the box” herringbone floors that are ready to be installed.  These style come in engineered format, so they can be installed over both plywood and concrete sub-floors.

parquet-herringbone2DuChateau specializes in creating floors with characteristics of an old-world, antiqued, natural hardwood flooring that has elegantly stood the test of time.   Luckily, you can still create the look of a traditional style herringbone floor, like these customers did in Calgary, Alberta (Supply and installation credit to Smith Bros. Floors)
