Monday Inspiration: Herringbone + Chevron Floors
Did you know there was a difference between herringbone and chevron floors?
Neither did I!
I have been thinking about floors lately and have decided what my dream floor for our house is. You guessed it, I’d love to have a classic herringbone or chevron floor.
The difference between the two is a bit of a pot-ay-to/pot-ah-to type of issue, because the overall look is very similar. But if you’re anything like me, you want to know what the difference is anyway, simply because you’re intrigued.
So, I made a little sketch to explain the difference. I promise you will be blown away both by my drawing abilities and the neatness of my handwriting.
See? You are impressed, right? Notice the straight line in the middle.
The planks overlap at the top, so the line in the middle has a zig-zag shape.
Pretty cool, right?
So, now that you know how weirdly excited I get about learning things like this (which, by the way, I learned from this post on the blog Things That Inspire), I’ll show you some examples of how beautiful these floors can look. I think they really add interest and lots of (French) classic style to a room:
I hope your Monday was lovely!
