Are Herringbone floors out of style?

No!  They are a classic, timeless design element that will always be in style.

Are Herringbone floors a good idea?

Absolutely they are!  You just need to keep in mind that they are harder to lay and a little more expensive.  You should leave this one to the professionals unless you are an experienced DIY'er.

What direction should I lay my floors?

Always lay your floors in the direction of a focal point.   Another thing to consider is which direction you want your guest to move.  The direction of the floors will help people move through your home.
