Painting Isn’t Just for the Walls Any More

Painted Flooring - Faux TilePainting! Have you thought about it for your floor? Yes, you could go the route of carpeting, tiling, or installing wood, but you could also paint your floor. It doesn’t matter if it is concrete, tile, hardwood, or subfloor; with proper prepping you can create a custom floor finish that reflects your style and complements your home.

Options are limitless for what you can create! Some ideas so draw inspiration from could be: a faux-finished tile floor or an area rug surrounded by a solid color floor, or make it personal by having all your friends write words of wisdom on it. Here is a website with some more how-to information to get you started: http://budgetdecorating.about.com/od/budgetdesignbasics/a/Painting-Floor.htm

This is a great solution for laundry rooms, basements, stairs, or your kitchen floor. There are many products available to add durability, texture, and non-skid.  Check with your local paint store or home improvement store for the right paints and finishes.

Remember, life is too dramatic for white walls – and plain floor!
