6 Ways to Perfectly Painted Floors

Painting your floor might be the quickest and least expensive make-over you can give a space. It’s one of those surfaces in the house that often goes unnoticed – until now that is!

I have found six beautiful and different ways to transform your floor. Enjoy!

  1. Black or white


Paint your floor solid white to open up the space and let the natural light reflect throughout the room to create a tranquil look and feel. What works in this picture is that the room doesn’t feel sterile due to the use of subtle texture with the skin on the floor and the grouping of black and white pictures on the back wall. www.pinterest.com

Alternatively you can paint the floor black for a dramatic effect. It creates depth in this hallway and works beautifully as a monotone color scheme against the white walls and ceilings. Combined with a black and white picture, the gorgeous white wire-framed chair that adds a graphic element and ending off with the black cupboard it makes a powerful statement. www.pinterest.com

  1. Blue vs Pink


Combine three colors of blue with the teal being the strongest and a very pale off-white stripe calming the overall look down into a lovely playful floor. Perfect for a little boy’s room. designismine.blogspot.fr

The subtle tones of pink in the girl’s room is again broken with an off-white stripe. Perfect for your little princess. homes.ninemsn.com.au

  1. Checker board


I love these checker board painted wooden floors and believe they are very ‘hipster’ right now! If like me you love wood and want to reveal as much as possible then opt for the white painted block against the raw wood. cinoh.tumblr.com

If you want to go bold and graphic paint the checker board in its traditional black and white squares. Here it works beautifully with the yellow and green touches. www.thehousethatlarsbuilt.com

  1. Pretty Pastels


Try pastels or the combination of white and grey for a subtle and feminine look. The rhythm of the different length planks painted in different colors works like a charm with the pink chair as a focal point. Note that the pink on the floor is a nude color. This helps keep the color palette calm. le-marche-eclectique.com

This beautiful high gloss floor with its geometrical pattern works perfectly in this modern minimal space. It’s the perfect example that you don’t have to do the full floor surface. www.yummymummyclub.ca

  1. Graphic geo


We usually see this optical illusive geometric pattern on a focus wall but here the clever owner decided to use it on the floor. The retro blue color scheme creates a wonderful masculine feel and the black kitchen cupboards with the blue SMEG is just gorgeous. We should all have a SMEG fridge in the kitchen, don’t you think?! theresewinberg.com

  1. Black & white stripes

If you have a large floor spaces then opt for these broad black and white stripes. It adds a bit of fun to this bathroom. jonesdesigncompany.com
