Design Trend: Herringbone Wood Floors
It’s no secret that I can spend hours upon hours scrolling through Pinterest or Instagram drooling over gorgeous interiors and exteriors. If it wasn’t for all that darn math, I might’ve been an architect. I truly love everything about a well designed home and I tend to notice the little details that sometimes go overlooked in photos and home design. So I thought it’d be fun to start a new series featuring specific design trends that I notice in my infinite scrolling. And today I’m highlighting one of my favorite flooring design trends that has been popping up all over the design world this year – herringbone wood floors.
Let’s start off with some drop dead gorgeous inspiration photos, shall we?

Herringbone Wood Floor Cost
Emily Henderson recently installed herringbone wood floors in her Southern California home that she is remodeling with her hubby. According to Emily’s contractor you can expect to pay 30% more in labor costs to install the herringbone pattern and around $1.40 to $4.00 per square foot to stain, sand and seal the floors if you purchase unfinished wood.
Where to Buy Herringbone Wood Flooring
What good is showing all these gorgeous inspiration pics if I don’t also give you some info on where to purchase herringbone wood floors, right? Well, I scoured the interwebs for the most affordable, best looking herringbone wood flooring and the winner is definitely these gorgeous floors from the above pic (and also the same floors Emily used in her project!)
They come in 4″x16″ unfinished white oak planks and are surprisingly affordable at $5.79/ sq ft. While not super cheap, I think it’s a great price point for such a stunning work of art that will become a wow factor in your home for years to come!
BuildDirect is also the same company that we purchased our white oak engineered hardwood from for Mouse House and also our current house reno. They ship super fast and have great customer service (and a bonus – you don’t have to pay tax!)
What do you think? Do you love herringbone wood floors as much as I do? Let me know what you think in the comments and have a great week!
PIN THIS FOR LATER:
These are looking beautiful. I liked these herringbone wood floors. Thanks a lot for sharing this post.
We are thinking of doing an inlay “rug” of herringbone wood tiles at just the entrance of our home, and then laying rhe rest of the floor traditionally. Any thoughts on this? Have you seen it before?
Hi Maria, I think that would look great! Joanna Gaines has actually done this before although I forget which house it was, but you could try googling it. Good luck!
Beautiful! Do you know did they leave the hardwood unfinished? I would imagine you need to put some product down after instillation.
I’m not sure, but I would guess that they used a matte poly/sealer.
Could you tell me the color of the dark wood herringbone floor that has the Sea Salt paint color
so sorry, but unfortunately I don’t have that info
but to my eye, it looks a bit like Early American so I would try that 🙂
