Wood Floor Border Inlay Design Ideas
Inlaid borders, inlay medallions and marquetry designs can really give a floor the wow factor, it’s something that was done in the Grand Palaces of Versailles and Fontainebleau hundreds of years ago, many of the palaces and public buildings of Russia and across Europe are adorned with floors that are an absolute work of art, hand crafted by long gone artisans, unlike many of today’s disposable floors, they will live on forever and never go out of fashion.
Feature strips like simple tram lines around a parquet or plank floor add a whole new look, they can even be added to an existing parquet floor. Contrasting wood species are used to add design elements within the floor, or we can use materials like brass strips, stainless steel, copper, aluminium, marble, granite, Corian®.
