Hardwood flooring borders can provide a truly customized design element.  Defining your home’s rooms or spaces with a border can have the most impact.   Using borders can help you divide rooms and make your floor plan more visually appealing if it feels too open.  It is possible to have big and bold borders or refined and complex ones.  These can be made from a variety of woods to create an eye-catching artistic look.

These flooring elements are crafted by artisans and installed by professionals to provide rooms an exotic look. Although implementation may vary based on the preferences of the individual, there are three categories of wood floor inlays.


One of the most common inlay techniques is wood floor borders. Usually a wood floor’s borders run around its perimeter (6 to 10 inches away from the walls) and can vary in design from a simple high comparison wood tone stripe to a 3D pattern with illusionary effects.

The use of wood floor borders has been a popular choice for homes looking for a luxury wood floor look since the turn of the century. In a room with ornamental decor and a large floor plan, wood floor borders work well.


Have you ever considered upgrading your area rug? A medallion can replace an area rug’s prominence as the center of attention on a hardwood floor.

As a standalone piece of art, wood floor medallions feature designs and patterns. Homeowners often customize them to reflect their interests, decorating themes, or lodge memberships. The most-common patterns are circular and radial, with compass rose coming in first for the most widespread implementation.

A floor border can be added to a medallion, or it can be used by itself. Medallions work better in smaller hallways and landings than floor borders, which are usually best suited for larger rooms.

You have a wide range of options if you are considering medallion installation. You can choose patterns and colors to create a unique look for your room. Regardless of their specific designs, medallions are versatile decor elements that can enhance the mood of any room.
