Ceramic Tile Floor Medallions > check this out

I would like to install a floor medallion in the center of our large circular foyer. Checking prices on the internet was a real shock! What I found was your average floor medallion is made from stone (usually emperador marble) and the design is "water jet" cut. The prices vary quite a bit, but even for just a 48" medallion, they want more than $1,000. Some of them cost about $2,000. These things are very pricey! Shipping a medallion here to the Philippines would also add a couple of hundred dollars to the price.

Well folks ... I just found what I think is a good deal on floor medallion here in the Philippines. Instead of being made from marble, this medallion is made from ceramic tile.

I just took a photo of a medallion they are selling for 6,000 pesos ($125) at a hardware store here. It measures 39" x 39" and the tile thickness is the same as the 16" ceramic tiles that are now installed in my house. They have 3 different designs to choose from.

This medallion is one-piece, so I don't have to put it together.

Now I need to find out how much my installer will charge me to cut out a section of my original 16" tiles in the foyer and install this medallion.

Hopefully that will cost me no more than about 1,000 pesos ($21)


Sorry, the photo is not super clear, but it was a little dark in the store when I took this photo, and I had to use a flash. In person, this medallion really does look very nice.

Tile Inlay

I got a nice Mosaic medallion that I feel was a little pricey but I feel the quality was worth it it ran me about 800.00 dollars. I hear those ceramic ones are nice but sometimes you get what you pay for. www.medallionsplus.com

make your won medallion with a waterjet machine

Most medallions are made with waterjet cutting machine. This kind of machine usually is CNC controlled so that it can make shapes of any kind. Waterjet cutting machine can cut materials like glass, ceramic tile, metal, marble, granite, plastic, rubber, and much more. For DIY, one can have a design as an image, then provide it tto a waterjet shop for cutting. There are waterjet shop that is more speicalized in
cutting glass or ceramic.

The problem is going to be cutting into your existing tile without chipping it and damaging it severely.
