You should keep in mind that a chevron floor inside is made of oak parquet and a chevron solid wood floor for outside is made of Ipé, Teak or Padouk.

When installing a Chevron wood floor, a part of the floor parts is lost, this is also called cutting or sawing waste. With a chevron floor, every floorboard has to be sawn to form the angles of 45 or 60 degrees. In addition, the saw waste also depends on whether the floor is installed with or without a border. A chevron wood floor without a border has about 15% saw waste; a chevron floor with border has about 10% sawing waste on the pattern and 5% on the border.
You can install a chevron wood floor at an angle of 45 or 60 degrees and both variants create a continuous V-shape. At an angle of 60 degrees, the 'sergeant stripe' version, the wave effect of the Hungarian point pattern is wider, more quiet and less sharp, giving the floor a more modern look. The 45 degree version looks more like herringbone and looks a bit more busy. This is in line with the classic image of a chevron oak floor.
Which angle you choose depends on the effect you want to create and the size of the room. In addition, you can accentuate the wave movement more or less with large or small plank sizes. By bringing chevron pattern wood samples to your home, you can get a good impression of which shape and color best suits your room.
The price of a chevron wood floor is made up of the costs for material, costs for labor and costs for finishing. If you opt for high-end oak floors that will last more than 20 years, the total costs in 2022 will be between 210 and 240 EUR per m2. This includes inspections, subfloor, glue, installation and VAT. It is recommended to have a chevron wood floor installed by a good parquet installer to get the best possible result. Installing it yourself is a difficult task. Therefore it is recommended you choose a company with its own installation service for the best results.
This is a matter of personal taste and the interior design. A herringbone floor looks more busy and demands more attention in a room, especially when you also use a bevel to make the lines of individual floorboards more visible. This pattern can be combined well with modern, minimalistic interiors. The chevron floor is calmer, demands less attention in an interior due to the symmetry of the pattern and is often used in a more classical design of a room. View examples to get an impression of the impact an installation pattern has on a room.
You can make a floor look more busy or quiet by playing with the plank sizes. Large floorboards look more modern, more quiet and sturdy, while smaller floorboards match the image of classic herringbone parquet or chevron parquet from the last century.
Finally, you can create contrast in a room with the choice of color of a herringbone or chevron floor. White furniture with a black floor or vice versa creates a lot of contrast, with the floor requiring more attention compared to a room where furniture and floor have similar colors.
In general, chevron wood floors are more expensive than herringbone wood floors. The big difference in costs is in the amount of labor time (and sawing waste) to make chevron floorboards.
With the chevron floor, the floor parts are installed at an angle of 45 or 60 degrees and connect at the top. In order to realize this, every floor part must be sawn in these corners in order to be able to connect neatly at the top. Herringbone floorboards do not need to be sawn. The planks are placed at an angle of 90 degrees to each other, which means that no sawing is necessary, except near walls or border.
The costs also depend the type of wood, plank thickness and width and the (color) finish of the floor. The choices herein determine whether a floor becomes more expensive or not.
An elegant installation pattern like the chevron floor deserves the best material for the best result. Wood is usually the material used for a classic chevron floor. A chevron floor wooden floor is durable and environmentally friendly, feels warm and natural and can be combined well with underfloor heating. Wooden floors last more than 20 years and can be sanded and stained again if desired, so that the floor looks like new again. Maintenance is also simple: vacuum and mop, just like any other type of floor.
The chevron floor is also available in other materials:
Laminate chevron floor
The laminate chevron floor is made of layers of plastic and printed paper that often consists of a wood grain print. Other materials can also be imitated on the paper layer, such as natural stone or cork. Advantages of laminate chevron floors are the low cost of the material and that the installation of the floor is less labour-intensive compared to a wooden chevron floor. The disadvantages are that wood grain print laminate does not feel, smell or sound like wood. In addition, repetitions of the same wood drawing occur on the planks (see image), while each wooden plank has a unique wood drawing. Finally, laminate is a lot less environmentally friendly because of the plastic layer and these floors last less long than a wooden floor.
PVC chevron floor
PVC or PolyVinylChloride is produced from the raw materials ethylene and chlorine, whereby ethylene is extracted from natural gas or oil and chloride from rock salt. PVC is manufactured by polymerization of vinyl chloride. PVC chevron floorboards are available as click PVC floors and glue PVC floors and are generally easier to install than traditional chevron floor parquet, provided the subfloor is completely level. The main disadvantage of PVC is that it is an environmentally unfriendly option at every stage of its life cycle (production, application, destruction). PVC is plastic and cheap PVC floors often contain harmful substances such as vinyl chloride, DEHP (diethylhexyl phthalate) and dioxins. When heated, such as in combination with underfloor heating, these harmful substances can be released and cause health problems. Although PVC floors with the German DIBt quality mark do not contain harmful plasticizers, there are as yet no standards for maximum permissible emissions from PVC floors in all areas in Europe. The total m2 price of a high quality chevron floor made of PVC is close to the total m2 price of a wooden floor.
The chevron floor wooden floor is by far the most environmentally friendly and most sustainable material. Wood also stands head and shoulders above the other materials in terms of experience. The most beautiful wood grain print is and remains: natural wood.
