Chevron and Herringbone Hardwood Floors

Carlisle Wide Plank Floors

 

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are safe and well today. We love being with you now more than ever and hope that these posts add a bright spot to your day. We know they add one to ours! Today, we are showcasing one of our most favorite flooring choices: chevron and herringbone floors!

What is the key difference between chevron and herringbone? 

If you want to spot the difference between chevron and herringbone, chevron planks meet in perfect points like a long string of arrows, whereas herringbone planks appear slightly staggered.

We absolutely adore hardwood floors whatever way they come. They’re low maintenance, easy to clean and great for allergies and households with pets. (And kids… Especially during quarantine! Hello, crumbs, paint spills and pencil shavings.)

A fun chevron or herringbone pattern ups the wow factor and instantly sets a room–and a home–apart from the crowd. And, like a good little black dress, stain color, plank width and amount of finish can dress them up or down.

Pattern brings the grain, texture and integrity of a wood floor to the forefront in the loveliest way.

It instantly adds a feeling of depth, age and history to a home–which isn’t surprising since these floors have been used since the 16th century! (If you were wondering if patterned hardwoods were trendy, you can tuck that thought away!)

Chevron floors from Carlisle’s Traditional Collection are perfection in a floor and have us rethinking the flooring choices for our addition.

A wider plank and a less “finished” look creates a charming, casual feel that lends vacation vibes wherever you are. We love this herringbone from Carlisle for a beach house! (It just moved to the top of our wish list!)

From a statement rug to a chic slate, seagrass carpet to sumptuous wool, flooring can instantly affect the feel of a space. I think we can agree this one is luxurious to say the least!

We love all sorts of flooring to bring pizazz to a room, but, right now, we are really into herringbone floors.

A fun twist on an old favorite, herringbone adds interest to the floor without being too busy. By themselves or with a rug over top, they are so chic!

In a single color, they are beautiful, but different stains lend a totally different look.

This washed look in the bathroom contributes to the overall spa-like feel of this stunning bathroom. It is so streamlined and lovely, exactly the kind of place we’d like to start and end our day.

When it comes to flooring, we think that nothing can make a huge statement quite like a fabulous rug. And, when it comes to rugs, a beautiful Oriental or Persian rug, like those from Fine Rug Collection are the perfect foundation.

The color palette of this beautiful study is calm, soothing and very restful. The bleached rug is a wonderful complement to the tones of the wood and furniture.
