Chevron and herringbone flooring: intensity from every angle

Chevron flooring: intensity from every angle


Originally patterns found in antique, classic decor, herringbone and chevron wood floor motifs are making a big comeback worldwide. Why? Because they add an original element and sense of dynamism to any space – trendy or traditional. Attractive oblique angles draw the eye and the attention, for interesting counterpoints between the floor and the other aesthetic aspects of a room.

Chevron or herringbone wood floors?

Chevron and herringbone wood floor patterns feature planks arranged in horizontal rows of V-shapes, either meeting on a straight line or with overlapping edges. Hungarian point is a style of herringbone wood floor pattern that usually incorporates a narrow, vertical plank of wood, called a picket, between each column of V-shapes. As beautiful as they are, these patterns do come with some drawbacks:

  • they are typically difficult to install;
  • rectangular planks must be cut at angles to form the pattern;
  • the center point must be determined for every line;
  • there is a high risk of open joints after installation, since the tongue-and-groove system has no bias and cannot be ‘locked’ together.

However, Quick-Step has solved all of these issues with Intenso, an innovative new collection of wood floors that combines the dynamic chevron pattern with easy installation and every benefit of a Quick-Step wood floor.
