For the longest time I’ve adored painted floors, so when I ripped up the carpet in my current home shortly after moving in, I was thrilled to see painted floors underneath. They were white, and while I love white painted floors, it wasn’t practical for kids and pets. I lived with the white floors for several months but was constantly cleaning them because you could see every speck of dirt and every strand of pet hair. So out came the dark chocolate paint to give my floors a more dramatic look. Today I thought it’d be fun to share variations of painted floors with you that I found over at Houzz.
White painted floors paired with white walls make the colors of the bedding stand out.
I love the crisp look of white floors and someday would like to re-incorporate them.
This eclectic style country kitchen has worn, green-painted floors, while the enclosed porch floor wears red.
A cute fluffy kitten adds the finishing, cozy touch!
Here’s a gorgeous example of painting a pattern over a stained floor.
Love the flooring and love the kitchen!!
This darling kitchen also sports a checkerboard floor, this one painted green and white.
Lots of great color and detailing … did you see the light fixtures above the kitchen island?
Would you put the same color on your walls and your floor? This space carries it off beautifully by dividing the space with crisp white and the addition of warm wood.
If you’re not brave enough to paint the floors inside your home, you could opt to paint a porch floor.
This one wears a pretty teal paired with a red, patterned rug. Beautiful!
But if you like to have a little more fun, try a quirky painted pattern on the floor.
All you need is a stencil, then repeat, repeat, repeat the pattern!
What I love so much about painted floors is you can really change the mood of a room depending on what you do. Here, a vintage bathroom acquires a farmhouse feel with it simply painted floors … note the planks are various widths.
And this dining room receives a more elegant look with its gray and white painted floor.
So whether you choose a painted floor with a casual cottage feel …
Or opt for something more elegant, you have a lot of flexibility with painted floors.
Plus it’s more economical than replacing carpet! I hope you enjoyed this round-up of painted floors.
