Floor medallions turn regular hardwood floors into wonderful works of art. If you want to do something special in your home, a floor medallion is a great option. In fact, they elevate the status of any room from boring to beautiful. Let’s take a look at some things you should consider before you inlay a medallion to your floors.
In Which Room Do I Place a Floor Medallion?
The room in which you place the medallions is vital to its overall appeal in your home. It would be foolish to place a medallion in a place that has a lot of furniture. You will just end up covering it up. These decorative designs increase labor and installation costs, so you want to be mindful about where it is placed.
You also want to consider the purpose of the room. Small rooms sometimes feel even smaller when too much decoration is involved. You want a room large enough so that the medallion is the focus point of the room. Think of it as art on the floors instead of the walls. You don’t want to do too much to distract from the beauty of the medallion.
Big Rooms Are Best
Your best bet is to place the medallion in a large room. You often see extravagant floor medallions in hotels, casinos, lobbies, museums, and ballrooms. You may consider placing it in your foyer to add elegance to your home’s entrance. This is a great way to impress guests if you like to entertain.
Where Do I Place a Floor Medallion?
Most often, our clients place the medallion right in the center of the room. This acts as the main piece of art and decoration in the room. However, some people place small medallions in bathrooms and bedrooms as well.
Another popular medallion is a family crest right inside the front door. This is a great way to brand your home and do something special for your family. You may already have a family crest, otherwise, you can design your own together!
Consider Extra Costs and Labor
Inlaying a floor medallion is not easy. It can only be done by a flooring expert. The more complex and intricate the design of the medallion, the longer and more difficult it will be to install. Luckily we have veteran technicians who know the flooring industry inside and out.
