Amanda Burdge suggests The best floor colors


I have never worked on a home that allowed me the freedom (and creativity) to paint a floor. Primarily because the male counterpart in the relationship appreciates natural wood, stained in all it's glory. Eh, what do men know anyways?
I was surfing the internet this morning and came across an article on painted floors. I really think it gives a room that graphic punch of unexpected color. I also think it can become art, and create a focal attention grabber. See for yourself.

  1. I love painted floors. My favorite is black painted wood.

  2. Great examples of how fantastic painted floors can look! I think I read somewhere that the caviar/silver lining floor was actually in a foyer - what a bold first impression to make, don't you think! Love it!!

  3. I wonder if I can paint laminate wood with that caviar and grey pattern. I have an engineered wood floor in a basement office that I just can't take anymore! And that deep ocean is so tempting. May need a link to that article!

    By the way, I think that caviar color may be my new favorite color...

  4. very nice. i always see floors and ceilings as missed opportunities. (more so with ceilings)
    Who says a floor has to be a brown stained wood, or boring carpet?

  6. I posted that first picture on my blog awhile ago b/c I loved the ceiling the floor - fabulous! My Mom has all painted white floors in her upstairs & it's fabulous. they have been scratched and scuffed up, but it's perfect with her style.
