Herringbone and Chevron
Distinctly different herringbone and chevron floorboards provide timber-look quality in an affordable price range. Laminate floating flooring is the cost-effective alternative to hardwood, including the full Carpet Court installation service.
Herringbone and Chevron flooring in Australia
Floorboards are an essential interior design consideration. Traditional and contemporary flooring designs for Australian homes include parquetry, chevron and herringbone patterns. Chevron and herringbone designs appear similar, but they are very different on closer inspection, each with unique visual effects.
Chevron Flooring is a design style consisting of alternating straight and diagonal stripes. The term ‘chevron’ refers to chevrons popularised in French military uniforms by Napoleon Bonaparte. Chevron patterns are gaining popularity in Australian homes and businesses.
Herringbone is a parquet floor pattern featuring wood strips laid in alternating directions. The pattern is named after the spine of the herring fish - hence the name herringbone. This style originated in 18th century France, and can be found in many classic residences.
Modern Carpet Court chevron and herringbone flooring is easy to lay, using the innovative click-lock floating floor system. This quality flooring offers the high-end appeal of natural wood flooring for a fraction of the price.
Difference between herringbone and chevron flooring
Carpet Court collections include ‘Masterpieces’, a highly desirable laminate flooring selection. The major difference is that herringbone ends ae cut square at a 90 degree angle, whereas chevron ends are triangular, resulting in a combination of angular planks and straight lines.
These distinctly different floor patterns are in favour with homeowners looking for parquetry flooring with a difference. Whatever type of flooring you are looking for, Carpet Court has the answers.
Installing your new laminate flooring
Chevron and herringbone flooring uses longer and wider planks than those used in traditional parquetry flooring, making them much easier and faster to install. The handy click-lock system is easy to master for DIY flooring experts. However, quality flooring deserves the best possible treatment, and hiring the services of Carpet Court installation professionals is money well spent.
Modern laminate herringbone and chevron flooring products from Carpet Court come with a long warranty, and are an effective way to achieve your design goals on time and on budget.
