The 5 Most Popular Flooring Installation Patterns You Should Consider

You picked the color and the species you want for your new floors, but we guarantee you that you have not thought about the installation patterns you are going to use, right? Face of Wood Flooring has a quick guide for you to understand what are the 5 most popular flooring installation patterns for you to enhance your flooring installation project. Which pattern is the right choice for your space? Let’s see!

Looking to enhance your floors or walls with a unique installation pattern? But, not exactly sure which pattern is right for your space? Don’t worry! We’re here to break down the 5 most popular installation patterns.


For a classic, clean look in her hallway, chose a straight pattern featuring beautiful solid hardwood floors. A straight pattern is created when each plank lays seamlessly side by side, and is one of the most common flooring patterns.


If you’re looking to bring an unexpected detail to your floors, a random pattern may be the perfect choice for you. This pattern is very similar to a straight pattern in that each plank lays side by side. But, with a random pattern, the width and length of the planks vary throughout the room, providing a very modern-style look for your room.


A diagonal pattern is exactly as it sounds: flooring in a diagonal layout. This style brings a subtle, geometric-like feel to any room, but it’s used more frequently in bathrooms and kitchens, placed in a diagonal pattern. The pattern brings a simple, yet noticeable interest to the floor and also expands the space.


You’ve probably seen herringbone floors all over your favorite Pinterest boards and HGTV shows. In a herringbone pattern, the end of one plank meets the side of another making a slightly staggered look. This style if used constantly in brick pavers installations, but it can be used with smaller wood planks to give the same kind of look that brick does. It looks stunning in wood. Finish it with a border framing the pattern, and the herringbone becomes the sole focus of any wood flooring room. When used in entryways, it’s a great way to welcome guests into your home!


Chevron patterns can often be confused with herringbone, since they are quite similar, but there is one key difference between these two patterns. With a chevron, each plank meets seamlessly at a point creating a distinct V. Although used more in backsplashes and walls, it can also be used successfully on wood floors.

An installation pattern can completely change the shape of your floors or walls, and enhance the look of your room. It’s important to note that some of these patterns are harder to install than others and may cost more depending on time and effort. In general straight wood floors will be a bit more cost-effective, but if you have a budget, you can select an exquisite and unique look.
