Inlay wood floors: 8 stunning design ideas

The inlay wooden floor can be considered the most exquisite and luxurious flooring. And no wonder. The effort for the creation is considerably greater than with the usual wooden floorboards or parquets. In most cases this has to be done by hand and by very skilled artisans. However, the inlay concept is worth it as it offers the opportunity to offer homeowners an exceptional interior. Today, inlays can be made from wood itself, steel, bronze, natural stone and even cement to achieve modern compositions. Here we have selected the finest and most modern ideas for inlay designs.
