Probably the most versatile type of wood - both in function and due to the complex possibilities for surface treatments – smuggles itself into the herringbone segment as a very special highlight.

The robust and popular oak is a real eye-catcher when installed in a herringbone pattern. On the one hand, the grateful wood can be processed and refined in any imaginable form, and on the other hand, the exceptional properties of oak make the wood a true allrounder. If you choose oak parquet in a herringbone pattern, your homes’ major highlight will definitely be your floor.

Finetuning of herringbone parquet

Even if you have already chosen a wood type, there are many more options available to you at Scheucher to enable you to “fine tune” your herringbone floor.  Different, available types of wood naturally open up a spectacular world of colors, that is expanded by various other surface treatments with natural colored oils or sealants. The grading also determines the effect of the floor to a large extent and sets individual accents - usually we prefer calmer gradings for herringbone patterns. The structure of the floor is linked to the haptics of the parquet, i.e. how it feels when you touch it with your hands or walk on it barefoot. In certain lights, it also lends the parquet a subtle “finished” look.
