Trend Alert: Painted Floors

Although technically not a trend as they’ve been around for ages, lately I’ve started noticing painted floors in many rooms I love.  The upkeep could easily turn into a nightmare (kids, pets, perhaps messy husbands), yet there’s plenty of appeal in designing a space around them. For one, painted floors demand a good deal of attention and are great at creating moods. White floors feel easy-breezy and make us think of island life. Dark or black floors create moody, dramatic, cozy vibes. Stripes and diamond patterns are playful and relaxed.

While I would never ruin perfectly good hardwood flooring, painting could also be a lifesaver for concealing beat-up boards that otherwise would cost a pretty buck replacing. Or perhaps you’d like to change your floors anyway and plan a little experiment beforehand. Whatever the reasons for painting your floors, here are some great instances that worked wonders. I could hardly imagine any of these rooms with a different floor treatment. Could you? 🙂
