BLOG: Herringbone flooring: Timeless elegance - mFLOR

Herringbone flooring has been a symbol of timeless elegance and sophistication for centuries. This classic flooring style is popular in both historic mansions and modern homes for its unique look and durability. When it comes to herringbone flooring, mFLOR is a brand known for its high-quality and innovative products. In this blog article, we will further explain the beauty and benefits of herringbone flooring from mFLOR.

The authentic look

Herringbone flooring has a unique pattern of strips or planks installed at a 90-degree angle, resembling the bones of a fish; the herringbone pattern. This pattern exudes timeless elegance and gives a room a sense of luxury and class. mFLOR understands this classic design perfectly like no other and has developed herringbone flooring that is both traditional and contemporary, making it suitable for a variety of interior styles.

Herringbone variants

Besides traditional herringbone flooring, there are several alternatives, such as extra-large herringbone flooing, the Hungarian Point and the Viennese Point.

However, there are many other creative possibilities, such as a double herringbone (2 strips installed side by side) or applying a luxurious border of herringbone or regular strips with feature strip) in between.

Durability and easy maintenance

mFLOR herringbone flooring is made of high-quality materials that are resistant to wear and scratches, making them extremely durable.

By using advanced technologies for the floors’ protective top layer, they are resistant to stains and are easy to clean. This makes mFLOR herringbone flooring ideal for busy households and commercial spaces.

Environmentally friendly

Sustainability and environmental friendliness are things that mFLOR values. Our herringbone floors are manufactured with consideration for the environment and use recyclable materials. Moreover, they are free of harmful substances, contain no phthalates and have very low emission levels, making them safe for your family and the environment. Also, they are easily recyclable after use in the home.

Various design options

Every room is unique, which is why mFLOR offers a wide range of colours and finishes for their herringbone flooring. Whether you are looking for a classic oak look, a modern grey shade, or even a herringbone pattern with a twist, mFLOR has an option to suit your personal style and interior.

It is even possible to mix 2 colours from the same collection, creating a truly unique herringbone floor. Each herringbone plank is installed piece by piece, so this is easy to achieve during the installation process.

Herringbone floor with border

Have you found your favourite herringbone floor? Then it’s time to think about whether or not to add a border. For an extra chic and stylish look, you can choose to add a border along the edges of your PVC herringbone floor. This adds extra sophistication to your floor and emphasises the herringbone pattern. Optionally, you can play with colour contrasts and the colour of the feature strips. Adding a feature strip between the herringbone pattern and the border is a matter of taste and style and can be a beautiful addition to both classic and modern interiors.
