First, allow me to clear up a little misconception. Chevron and herringbone are very similar, but each has their own differentiation. Chevron floors require the wood planks to be angled and come together to a point, which makes them more costly to manufacture and install. Herringbone accomplishes a similar look by linking two boards at a 90 degree angle as noticed below. Herringbone is quite a bit more accessible compared to chevron, which makes it the popular alternative. Longer herringbone patterns will be super sexy during the following year, particularly among homeowners. Will the herringbone wood fad last in 2020 and beyond? This tendency is not going to last eternally , but it sure seems pretty while it is here.
