Maple Flooring and Hardwood Floors

Floor Medallions

Floor medallions add a great touch of decor to any flooring setup, with marble, wood, granite, and even mosaic designs widely offered.

Floor coverings typically come in a wide variety of plain and patterned styles. If you choose a natural material such as wood or stone for the flooring in your home, it can produce a rather uniform look and typically property owners will use decorative touches to break this up a little. There are a variety of options for this, although if you want to produce a high quality and stylish appearance, floor medallions are an option to think about.

Floor medallions are decorative inlays that are most commonly used on hardwood or stone floors. They are usually circular in shape, although it is possible to get square, oval and octagonal medallions and they can be produced with a wide variety of patterns and looks. They are usually set in the centre of a floor to create a decorative centerpiece, although smaller versions can be set in the four corners of a room or other locations.

In common with the flooring they are most typically used with, floor medallions are typically manufactured in a range of wood and stone materials. Options can include a number of hardwoods such as maple, beech and oak and a variety of stone materials including marble and granite. Most companies that produce them will have a range of stock designs available, although many can also produce a custom design such as a company logo or a family crest.
