Timeless and Classic Medallions

Medallions have been made for floors and walls for centuries. Medallions tend to make a classic and beautiful focal point in the dinning room, entrance way down a hallway, or in a bathroom. This timeless art we have had the privilege of continuing is truly inspiring.

Occasionally we will hear from people who think medallions are outdated and old-fashion. But we tend to look at it and say the look is not out dated but what people may find is out dated. The 5/8ths by 5/8ths medallions and the medallions with wide spacing for grout we tend to find for our customers is a turn off. We tend to find that tighter joints and bigger pieces used tend to make our customers happier.

With our ability of making the medallions here in Las Vegas and allowing our customers of changing the colors to suit their taste and change the size to fit there needs our customers seem to love our creations and love showing them off to their friends. Even when people have bought the same medallion but choose different colors the medallions have a different look and feel to them.

Such timeless pieces of art I cannot see going out of style. But as this year has progressed I have found that our more unique and captivating colors are being used more than the the traditional neutral colors. And when they are done they tend to look even better than the original designs.

Tile Flooring

We all think about how to improve and what we would like to add or put in our homes constantly. That new couch you saw, or that new appliance that you just have to have. In flooring it seems like there is more to choose from everyday. You have vinyl, laminate, parquet, hardwood, carpet, marble, travertine, porcelain, ceramic, quarry tile, stained concrete, the list seems endless to say the least. And with tile all the difference in colors and designs and patterns it is almost enough to make you crazy. Or at least throw your hands up in despair just walking into another floor covering store. It is enough to make you wonder how many forms of cream, beige, tan and every other color that is possible can be seen or imagined.

 

Calcite noce 12x24One Key piece of advice when you are looking at flooring whether in tile or not start off with a general color or look you want. Once you narrow down the color start adding slowly what you want more of until  you are thinking to yourself you are being too picky. As you slowly add more details in what you want in your floor the selection gets narrower and narrower. Once the selection is down to two or three than the fun begins. Than you can say OK I want a tile I can do a pattern with on the floor, or I want to keep it simple and just go with a basic install. Do you want a decorative piece to go every so often in your house or do you want a medallion? Why not do both and have the same design for both?

Here at Designer Tile Plus we are making these medallions and decorative pieces so what we can do is make it so the colors are the same, and the design is the same. Not only that but what we can also do is make the decorative pieces the same size as the tile so you will have a true custom designer look. Designer Looks and Designs at Outlet Prices.

 

Designer Tile Plus Medallions

At Designer Tile Plus we like to think of ourselves as the medallion masters. We create what we believe are some of the most beautiful designs by hand rather than waterjet. Making our medallions designs are more unique. We are able to change colors and shape on every design that we produce. We strive to make every medallion we sell to the best of our abilities, and we try to make it something we would be proud to have in our own homes. While we do not have the precision of a water jet but  we like to think we are a close second best.  With our years of experience we have come along way from where we started from. Instead of using tumbled stone to make our designs we try to make our designs with more precise and solid pieces. We no longer use little 5/8 by 5/8 material we are using larger pieces to minimize the grout lines. We are constantly pushing ourselves to make more intricate designs and match what people have made by waterjet.

But even if we are not there yet on matching a waterjet medallion we are able to fix and repair our medallions if a installer or homeowner when they are laying them in breaks a piece. The homeowner or contractor brings the piece in and we cut the piece again to make it so the homeowner is not looking at a broken piece in their medallion. A better fix than using epoxy  and crushed stone to make it work. Or at least we think so.
