A perfect combination. Shaker kitchen design and herringbone wood floors.

There is nothing new about shaker style kitchens or parquet flooring, but the two are making a big comeback in home design in the form of modern and versatile shaker kitchen design choices and contemporary herringbone style oak floors.

They make a perfect pairing and create a classic look that still feels contemporary and will stand the test of time.

Thinking about introducing this style trend into your home but not quite sure where to start or how to perfect it?

The combination works wonderfully contrasting a naturally textured real wood floor from our Zigzag herringbone collection, with your perfect Shaker colour finish. Warm up a light paint finish a warm wood finish like Frozen Umber or Tannery Brown, or give darker cabinets a burst of lighter contrast with light oak finishes including Nordic Oak and White Island Sand.

Take inspiration from some of our recent home design case studies which feature stunning shaker style kitchen design and herringbone wood floors from our Zigzag collection. They are bursting with home design inspiration to help you get your dream kitchen renovation underway.
