Hardwood Floor Staining, Borders, Medallions and Designs
With advances in the industry over the past few decades, customizing your wood floor is easier, and more affordable, than ever before. You can create a unique look with simple upgrades such as borders, medallions, hand-distressing, painted floors, mixed media and exotic wood species. Here are some ideas of ways to create a new look for your hardwood floors.Borders create a frame effect in a particular room or area, and usually contrast to the main area of the room. For example, a simple installation of a medium colored wood such as strip white oak might include a border outlining the room in a contrasting darker species of wood such as Brazilian cherry. The possibilities are endless, and are not limited to wood only. Borders can incorporate multiple wood species, stone, marble, brass, stainless steel, nickel and other metals.
Medallions usually are installed in the main field of the floor, typically in areas such as foyers. Medallions can incorporate multiple wood species, and other mixed media, such as stone, metal and leather. Factory finished medallions can be routed into existing floors with minimal disruption. For more customized looks, such as a family crest, a professional wood flooring installer can work with you to select the species and colors that will best meet your needs.

Painted floors transform an ordinary wood floor into something unique. For example, a painted border can transform your floor into a work of art reflecting your personal style – country, formal, or even patterns like free-flowing vines. For more dramatic painted design elements, consider creating an Oriental rug effect, or even marble. Your only limit is your imagination.

Custom Staining can give your existing wood floors an entirely new look very affordably. Light colored stains can give new life to an old wood floor. For a traditional look, consider re-staining your wood floors to a warm, medium-toned color. Dark stains can give your floors a stately new look.
