Oak herringbone floor

The name 'herringbone floor' may not sound very attractive, but an oak herringbone floor looks really beautiful. The herringbone floorboards are sawn diagonally at the end and laid against each other at an angle of 90 degrees, creating the herringbone pattern.

All herringbone floors from Uipkes are made from sustainable European oak. Oak wood offers several advantages:

  • The wood has a timeless character
  • Oak can take a beating
  • There are many options in terms of finishing
  • Oak wood and underfloor heating go well together

Due to the many possibilities of oak herringbone floors, they match almost every interior style.


It is possible to give a twist to the herringbone pattern, for example by adding a double herringbone or triple herringbone to choose. In addition, you can turn the herringbone pattern a quarter turn so that a elbow pattern arises.

Oak herringbone parquet with underfloor heating

An oak herringbone floor can be laid with solid wooden floorboards or with parquet flooring. At Uipkes we always opt for parquet flooring. Oak parquet is suitable for underfloor heating, solid wooden floorboards are not. This is because solid wood can shrink and expand due to temperature differences.

Parquet flooring is made of a bottom layer of cross-glued waterproof birch plywood, topped with a top layer of solid oak. The underlay ensures that the parquet flooring barely 'works' or shrinks and expands. The operation is so minimal that it is even possible to remove the floorboards without skirting boards tight against the wall.

Install underfloor heating

At Uipkes we have years of experience in laying oak parquet on underfloor heating.

If desired, we can also arrange the installation of underfloor heating for you, so that you have only one point of contact for the entire project.
