Flooring. It’s such an important part of your home or office’s aesthetic. What does yours look like? Whether you’re looking to refresh old hardwoods or ugly concrete, want to add more color to your spaces or find a floor solution that looks stylish yet doesn’t cost a whole lot, paint might be the answer. The following are 10 reasons to paint your floor!
1. An instant upgrade.
Flooring and countertops are the two design features in a home that are going to give you the biggest return on your investment.
2. Turns shabby into chic.
Do you have old floors that really could use some help, but no budget to totally replace the wood? Painting floors is a cost-friendly alternative to a total overhaul. It’s also less expensive than refinishing and staining old hardwoods.
3. It covers many surfaces.
Painting floors isn’t limited to hardwoods — you can paint other materials, such as linoleum and concrete, to bring it from drabulous to fabulous! Think of what that garage floor would look like in a different hue…
4. It doesn’t discriminate.
No matter if your style is traditional, modern, eclectic or something else, painted floors look great and work within the parameters of your style.
5. Creates interest.
Your flooring just became a focal point in your home or office.
6. Adds texture.
Well, it’s not really texture, but selecting a large-scale pattern, such as stripes, zigzags or plaid, to paint on your floors brings a textural look underfoot and nicely contrasts with other textures in your space.
7. It’s fast.
Just like painting your walls, painting your floors isn’t a remodeling job that’s going to wreak havoc on your home or office for too long. But unlike your walls, you clearly can’t be in the room with wet floors, so you’ll need to plan accordingly.
8. Small space booster.
We’re a fan of painted floors in large rooms as well, but wow, it makes areas, such as bathrooms, the entryway and mudroom really stand out.
9. It’s low maintenance.
Easy to clean. Takes high traffic. Looks better with age. Need we say more?
10. Covers imperfections.
That’s right. Is your floor a tad scratched up from years of wear and tear? Paint your floor and see those imperfections go bye-bye.
