Stylish and Versatile

Appealing to look at, herringbone flooring is a great timeless design for your home in various rooms. Herringbone-style luxury vinyl flooring gives the appearance of a solid wood floor and can also make your home look bigger. 

It’s perfect for tight areas such as hallways thanks to its pattern. It’s also a great space enhancer for otherwise unnoticeable spaces around the house with the illusion of movement it gives! Here at contract flooring, we provide Karndean herringbone LVT flooring, a fantastic luxury vinyl range full of various styles for your every need.


Herringbone vinyl flooring is well renowned for its durability. It is protected by a well-made scratch-resistant ‘’wear layer’’ meaning less need to replace the flooring if in a high traffic area. If you take care of your herringbone flooring it will take care of you. You may not need new flooring for decades with appropriate routine and minimal upkeep! Because of its resistance and durability, manufacturers offer year-long warranties, such as Karndean Design’s 10-20 year commercial warranty.

Easy to Clean 

Herringbone vinyl floor durability goes hand in hand with its easy maintenance! A simple routine of sweeping and mopping will keep your floors clean for a long time. The smooth surface of your flooring makes it easier to clean as dust and dirt will not get into any crevices! This makes it perfect for high-traffic areas such as the hallway or kitchen.

Adds Value to Your Home

Herringbone vinyl flooring is durable, aesthetically pleasing, and sure to last for years in your home. However, it requires correct installation in the beginning in order to ensure all this after. Taking care to install your flooring properly can add value to your home in the future as it is a reliable flooring choice to serve for years to come! 

Glue Down, Loose Lay and Rigid Core

Karndean offers three fixing styles for you to choose from: gluedown, loose lay and rigid core. All three LVT floor types have the same aesthetic effect as regular herringbone flooring. Their range of luxury vinyl flooring gives a great choice of style, and are easy to upkeep. 

If you want to customise your floor with different laying patterns, design strips and borders, the glue down option is for you. It offers a completely flat, dry subfloor, prepared by a flooring professional.

If you’re looking for a floor that is quick and easy to install with added acoustic benefits, you might want to choose the loose lay option.

Choose the rigid core range if you want to be able to fit over existing hard floors or damp, uneven subfloors quickly and easily with added acoustic benefits.
