Painting your floor can make the world of difference to the appearance of your home, and is not costly to do at all. Here are some tips on how you can transform your flooring with paint:
Go For White
Painting your floor white can make your home feel very inviting, and creates a fresh, airy ambience throughout. Not only that, but white can go with almost any other colour, so it gives you the opportunity to mix and match your white flooring with other vibrant colours.
Sometimes white might be a little too bright for your interior, so a great alternative is using a grey tone. Grey tones are effective in most designs as their neutrality allows them to combine with most colours, including bright blues and yellows. In addition to its versatility, grey is also less susceptible to showing dirt than pure white.
Opt For Darkness
If you already have light walls, ceilings or furniture, then you could create a beautiful contrast and paint your flooring a dark shade such as black or brown. Darker shades are particularly useful in areas such as the kitchen or in the hallway, where dirt is known to build up.
Create A Distressed Look
Sometimes giving your flooring a more aged and distressed look can really enhance the overall character of your home. If you want to achieve this sort of look, then you could sandpaper parts of the floor after the paint has dried, in order to reveal the original wood, and then applying a wax or protective lacquer.
