Updated: Jul 8, 2021

Given the nature of wood, there are endless possibilities when it comes to patterned flooring. In the early days, the patterns were limited. This gave designers, homeowners and installers the creative freedom to craft the many unique patterns we see today. You get the best hardwood flooring in Singapore, as there are a number of contractors dealing in this.


Here are the top 6 hardwood patterns that we love!


1.Herringbone

The earliest examples of the herringbone pattern can be seen in the intricate jewellery of the Ancient Egyptian elite and in fabric originating in Ancient Italy. In the Roman Empire, the herringbone pattern was used in road paving systems to ensure durability and stability.


Named after its resemblance to the skeleton of a herring fish, the herringbone pattern consists of an arrangement of rectangles in a repetitive pattern. It is a classic pattern that exudes elegance.

2. Double Herringbone


Just like herringbone but twice the fun. Double herringbone pattern consists of 2 wooden planks placed at the flat side of the adjacent planks. This gives the illusion of wide planks which is a popular size amongst homeowners.

3.Chevron


Not to be confused with the herringbone pattern, the planks of the chevron pattern are cut to ensure that the ends are connected at a 45-degree angle. If you find this pattern familiar, you may have seen it on the uniforms worn by police officers or the army. The "V" shape is a typical characteristic of the pattern.
