Roses, stripes, checkers and compass roses are all good wood inlay patterns. Geometric shapes such as stripes, checkers and squares are good wood inlay patterns as they allow floors to be seamlessly covered. Decorative wood inlay patterns such as roses or compasses are good for floor focal points of interest.
Wood inlays can be used on an entire floor, or just in one spot. Wood inlays are available as floor borders to separate rooms or spaces. They are also available as floor decorations for entryways, dining rooms or living rooms. Wood inlay patterns can also be used on boxes for identification or decoration.
