It’s official. Herringbone floors are my new obsession. And I’ll bet they will be yours too by the time you finish this post. This herringbone pattern is also sometimes referred to as chevron. I prefer it in wood tones, but it’s a beautiful pattern for tile as well.

When installing herringbone floors, precision is key. One small mistake will throw off the entire floor. This installation is probably best left for the pros. The herringbone pattern can vary, as shown in this next photo courtesy of Apartment Therapy.
