Did you know that painted wood flooring is a centuries old thing? Well, believe it or not it really is. People use to do this to bring in a little artistic design flair to their rooms because having carpet, or even a rug, was a true luxury and not affordable by the average person. This look is making a come-back in design so today I wanted to just show you a few of these great artistic designs...
I love the simplicity of these blue and white stripes in this kitchen
A bold statement, but quite the "look" with this black and turquoise
How about this lovely design...and color?
Dramatic...don't ya think?
I am loving the painted zig-zag pattern
This pattern and color absolutely makes this bathroom...love it too!
Painted floors can even take on a whole new look in a rustic surrounding...nice! I believe I'd have to say that the floor itself was the focal point of this room.
Ooh, I like this pattern lots! (and PINK chairs too - Yummy!) This was in my painted flooring research so I assume this really is painted to stand out like a rug.
A sleek modern look with a bold geometric black and white painted floor...I like the way it ties in with the crown molding and built-in.
How about just a plain white painted floor? This would certainly open up any space and make it feel larger.
Great use of paint at the bottom of stairs...now that makes a statement!
I will always love a basic blue painted floor, cottage style, as it reminds me of the ocean!
So...here's my question to you. Could you, and would you, PAINT your wood floors? If so, which look appealed to you most? I am just curious since I told you I just don't know if I could really do it myself. I love the looks of these, but just not sure I could go through with it for myself. OK, maybe, just maybe if it were a beach cottage I could. Share your thoughts...please!
And, be sure to make it a "Simply Irresistible" Day!
