Today is all about inspiring your home. More specifically, today is all about inspiring the floors inside your home! Who says you have to pick only from carpet, tiles or some form of hardwood? It’s easier than you think to add your personal style to what you walk on! To inspire you and get your creative juices flowing to your floors, we’ve compiled some of our favorite, most inspirational and creative painted floors. Take a peek!
Patterns and designs can easily be put on the floors. In your home office, kitchen or even in your own bedrooms, stripes and checkerboards could take your room from dull to fab in an instant.
It’s all about how creative you want to be and how bold you want to go. Take it to an entirely different level with polka-dots, plaid or even handwriting for a super creative and indulgent style. There are no rules when it comes to imagination, remember that.
It’s important to use complimentary colors though. Something too contrasting or too harsh on the eyes will only make the room appear smaller. With the right palette and design, you can create depth, style, texture and length all with the swish of your paintbrush. Make sure your blending it right with the style of the room, the walls and what the space is accented in. This way everything flows and seems to create a smooth surface, even if you’ve decided to go with a fun pattern or unique design.
But don’t rule out a solid, sleek color. Forgo the brown, hardwood floors and transform them into a monochromatic silver or pearly white! It’ll create the instant illusion of a never-ending space and much larger, more open space. And it’s so chic! This is also a great option is you just don’t want your floor to stand out at all. It will hide any imperfections and steer the attention away from any scratches or nicks in the wood and/or tile.
So, what will you do? Paint your kitchen floor powder pink? Or start mapping out your fresh design for your attic bedroom? We love the idea of taking your creativity and home decor into your own hands and staying away from what’s “expected” of your house’s style. There’s nothing wrong with breaking the mold and there’s definitely nothing wrong with splattering a bit of paint to some boring, ole’ floors!
