The inlay wood flooring can be considered the most exquisite, the most luxury flooring design. And no wonder. The effort to create it is significantly bigger than with the common wood plank floors or parquets. And in most cases, it has to be done by hand and by very experienced craftsmen. But the inlay concept is worth it as it provides an opportunity to create extraordinary interiors for homeowners. Today, inlays can be created from wood itself, steel, bronze, natural stone, and even cement, to achieve modern compositions. Here we’ve picked the most delicate and modern looking inlay designs ideas.
