There are instances when painting floors can be the best solution to freshen up a space and add character. It could also prove to be a hard decision to make, as flooring is one of the most expensive changes to make in a home, so painting could be a risk. But it's a choice that can make sense if the floors need repair or have been refinished so many times that doing so again is not an option.
I was inspired to write this Ideabook and look for additional rooms with painted floors on Houzz when Rene, from the blog Cottage and Vine, painted the floors in her boy's bedrooms white. This proved to be a smart choice with great results when refinishing the floors were not in the cards.
Here are several rooms in which homeowners and designers also put aside their reservations and pulled out the paint brushes.
The wood floor in this home is very worn and presented the perfect opportunity to paint. There was nothing to lose and everything to gain. The large pattern painted in white could not be more dramatic. This is a wonderful example of what can be accomplished by painting floors!
In this space the mix of the painted turquoise floors and golden yellow walls is a pure delight. Fresh, happy, sweet and modern, all at once.
Painting wood floors with crisp white paint is a popular choice. Here the result is just great. The wide white planks add to the fresh modern appeal and create a wonderful sense of movement against the ceiling beams running in an opposing direction.
