Sometimes people like mosaic medallion which made from small grain for wall for floor decoration or tumbled stone medallion which most made of slate for indoor or outdoor flooring, but the most popular is waterjet marble medallion for indoor living room or bathroom etc.
The mosaic medallion is made from small stones, tiles, or glass pieces assembled together with gout gaps. There is a mesh attached on the back and gaps between pieces have to be filled with grout. More larger the size of medallions, more difficult to handles, and more higher the price, because the medallion is not very solid.
Tumbled stone medallions are made from cutting standard off-the-shelf travertine or slate tiles. You should consider the idea of putting a tumbled stone backsplash up. With tumbled stone tiles you can create any type of look you want to have.
Waterjet stone medallion is made from cutting natural stone tiles with a waterjet, assembled as tight as possible on a solid backer. Stones are polished and sealed and there are no gaps or grout between individual pieces. You don't have to worry about cleaning the grout or matching grouts in color.
The last question is if we wanna to build medallion for our private room, what is the right floor medallion size for our room?

A good rule of thumb is to choose the size to be between 1/3 and 1/2 of the width of the room. For example, if the room is 15' long by 12' wide, the medallion can be 48".
