Herringbone Timber Designs – Choose your style!

Decorative parquet floors are experiencing a renaissance here and in Europe. Once the domain of historic homes and classic apartments, the look of timeless quality workmanship is once again gracing the floors of our high-end interiors.

But don’t despair, man-made alternatives with easy installation are offering the market affordable options to achieve this up-market look. Woodland Lifestyle’s multi-layer waterproof Herringbone floor system provides maximum flexibility for open plan homes.

Decorative Patterns

Traditional or modern interiors lend themselves to timber flooring designs. Add in decorative patterns and herringbone planks and you have the perfect backdrop to create your own unique style. Pair dark moody colours like Kentucky Oak with high contrast whites and creams in wall colours and furniture.  Or go modern and light with Turin Oak Slacked Oyster on the floor for a fresh coastal vibe, adding pops of decorative colour.

Furniture in timber or rattan is also making a comeback and can be seen with fresh new fabrics or classic Hampton’s white linens and navy blues. These are easily complimented with area rugs, large baskets and leafy plants contrasting against the timber flooring tones.  

Herringbone is also perfect for renovators and those seeking to upgrade a traditional villa or new home hungry for a fresh new look. Start with the most desperate rooms and continue your flooring throughout, despite the existing substrate of vinyl, tiles or timber.


The timeless elegance of herringbone designs can be laid throughout your home and is suitable to continue into bathrooms and laundries too. A highly engineered structural core made from closed-cell vinyl offers a patented waterproof core which is rigid, light, strong and dimensionally stable.

ISOCORE Technology has been the domain of quality waterproof flooring solutions in plank form however the herringbone designs have opened a whole opportunity for creative flooring designs and patterns usually reserved for tiles.

Knowing the herringbone floor was destined for wet areas as well, an Ultra-Fresh treatment has been applied to the surface to inhibit the growth of unwanted mildew and odours which can occur in more humid New Zealand climates.

Easy to Install

Choose from five realistic natural wood grains which can be laid in patterns with borders and planks or traditional single, or double herringbone designs. The simple innovative Droplock 400 installation systems ensure fast and easy laying without the need for the expertise of hardwood timber specialists.

The floating floor system also incorporates a 1mm integrated sound mitigating underlay saving more time and money. The underlay reduces both reflected and transmitted sound delivering warmth and comfort underfoot and helps conceal substrate imperfections. A cosy, warm bathroom floor, now you’re talking!

 Durable Against Scuffs and Scratches

Previously, the timeless beauty of traditional timber floors came at a cost due to the likelihood of scratching, denting and laborious resurfacing and polishing.  The LVT Herringbone multilayer floor planks have a durable transparent vinyl wear layer providing significant durability against scuffs and scratches. This commercial grade wear layer is backed by a seven-year* commercial and lifetime* residential warranty.
