Borders/Medallions/Feature Strips

Ornamental floors, in all their varied forms, have become an increasingly popular choice for many consumers who want to customize their homes. The description “ornamental floors” covers a wide variety of options, some more difficult to execute than others. These include feature strips, patterned floors, hand-cut scroll work, laser-cut premanufactured inlays and borders, and mixed-media installations (involving metal, stone or tile with wood). An ornamental floor may be as simple as a single, 3/4-inch feature strip following the room’s perimeter. Or it may be ornate and elaborate, involving thousands of pieces that combine for a true work of art. The techniques used to create these flooring effects are as varied as the contractors who practice them.
