We look at ways traditional patterns can be used in modern homes.

Nobody can dispute the ongoing love of herringbone style floors, and this months blog will focus on how this patterned favourite has been updated to suit the modern home.

Grey Tones

When you think of contemporary, loft living spaces, it's no surprise that cool, slick grey tones spring to mind. Not only do they add uncomplicated, sophisticated style, but grey tones also work with a multitude of colour palettes, along with eclectic and minimalist schemes.

Small Room Remedy

Limited with the amount of space you have in your bathroom or kitchen? The beauty of herringbone-patterned floors is that they can work well at tricking the mind into thinking there is more space. The fishbone pattern helps draw the eye and helps add the illusion of space, making it an excellent solution for the smallest rooms in the home.

Not just for timber

Our floors are inspired by a vast range of materials, and we take time to add in the subtle shades and imitate the feel of natural finishes. Taking inspiration from traditional timber patterns, we updated our range to include some stunning stone effect styles for those wanting a modern adaption of this classic pattern. The result is a range of realistic stone effect floors, including this light chalk grey floor from our new Urbanista collection.

Caring for Herringbone

Traditional herringbone floors not only were expensive and time-consuming to install but also had an element of ongoing maintenance to keep looking fabulous. Our herringbone vinyl floors may look like the real deal, but they are super easy to install, and a quick wipe up of splashes and spills makes them a perfect and practical choice for modern families.
