Decorative painting of wood floors has become quite popular in the past few years. In today's tough economy do it your selfers are cutting back and finding different ways to create a wonderful home for less money. Panting an existing floor is one great way to do this. A painted floor can transform a common space into a unique and beautiful expression of your personality. You can paint entry floors, laundry rooms, dining areas, anywhere you want a unique new look.
Painting offers an inexpensive, fast way to cover up a wood floor that may need work. It offers a number of interesting decorating options for formal and informal rooms. And, while it might be a bit of work to undo and go back to natural wood, it is possible.
The possibilities are endless as far as pattern and color go. From two-tone stripes to checkerboard, or a stenciled border, you are limited by only your imagination.
If painting a floor seems intimidating, it's a good idea to do your first one in an out-of-the-way bedroom or less used room. Try to remember that the same rules apply to painting a floor as to any other project you attemp. Be prepared and don't expect perfection. Have fun!
Different floors require different prep work so be sure to check with your painting professional to help you get started and create a unique floor that reflects your unique style.
