In the quest for a floor that gifts your abode a completely novel and striking appearance? An SPC herringbone floor is the unparalleled selection for this metamorphosis! Delve in here to comprehend why. 

What is SPC Herringbone? 

Herringbone SPC meticulously aligns short planks at right angles to each other, fostering an elegant 'V' pattern. This pattern bears striking resemblance to a herringbone, offering a splendid and timeless design. The herringbone pattern infuses any space with a sophisticated and stylish ambiance, courtesy of its characteristic zigzag motif. 
The Timeless Herringbone Pattern 
The herringbone pattern hails from many years ago, with the ancient Merimde culture incorporating this decorative design in their pottery. Since then, the herringbone pattern has found its way into a vast ocean of artistic shapes and designs. To this day, the pattern continues to dominate as a popular trend across numerous interiors. Installing this SPC herringbone pattern endows your home with an authentic and timeless atmosphere. A significant advantage of this floor is that it is 100% water-resistant, allowing you to install it in any room of your home, including the bathroom. 

Herringbone Flooring: A Classic and Refined Choice

Bask in the pleasant warmth of an SPC herringbone floor during the cold winter months. In addition to its warm appeal and comfortable texture, herringbone flooring offers the benefit of compatibility with underfloor heating systems. If you are keen to learn more about the use of SPC in conjunction with underfloor heating, we recommend consulting our more specific blog: ‘Is SPC Vinyl Flooring or PVC Flooring Suitable for Underfloor Heating?’ Are you interested in installing a herringbone floor in your kitchen or even in the bathroom?

The Enchanting Aesthetic of a Herringbone Pattern

Purchasing a Herringbone Floor 
When determining the cost of your herringbone floor, several factors come into play, including the area of the space and the required labor hours. Because herringbone panels have more cutting loss, it's necessary to order extra panels. Fortunately, the handy click system allows you to easily install the panels yourself, significantly saving on labor costs. An SPC herringbone floor, therefore, doesn't have to cost a fortune and is budget-friendly. By planning carefully and performing the installation yourself, you save significantly on labor hours and keep the costs low.
