Floor medallions have long been associated with luxury homes and showcase mansions. But now even such hand crafted art has become a mass-luxury item. Seen in foyers, kitchens, and master baths, these medallions are now available to almost anyone.
If you're handy with a wet saw for tile or stone or routers and saws with wood, you could design and install your own. But for hardwoods especially, I'd save this for the professionals. Conversely, in tile, you could likely install a pre-made medallion yourself.
Search online for floor, stone, or hardwood medallions can you can find many ready-made and custom options available. And it gets better ... apparently the slow down in home building has lead the manufacturers of medallions to start offering them for sale. Check out the huge discounts from the Medallion Outlet here.
Or see these beautiful hand-crafted hardwood medallions at Majestic Medallions. Looks like he may have some for sale too.
Either way, check out your better flooring stores and scour the Internet, you just may find a real bargain that will turn your room into a luxury showplace.
