Fun with your floors!

"creative ideas for painting your floors"

I’m always looking for creative and interesting ways to refresh a room or to give it a new lease of life.   One easy way of doing this is to paint the walls a different colour or wallpaper just one wall in the room.  Or you could simply move the furniture around the room, add a few new cushions and it will look quite different.  Recently I came across some really amazing painted floors and thought it was just the best way to give an old room a new look.  This could work in any room where you don’t have carpet but I like it best for a kids room.  You can be as bold as you dare or as subtle as you want and with a little effort you can keep updating the look as your child grows up.

As the pictures above show, painting stripes works really well – how cool is that rainbow floor?  I also like the idea of going for one solid colour like the pink floor which works so well against the white walls and the (gorgeous) yellow cot or for a bolder look, how striking is that green floor?  For a more vintage feel, those subtle diamond shapes add bags of character to the room and are my favourite of them all.  Alternatively painting polka dots or a few little geometric shapes would look really fun too.  And you don’t even have to paint the whole floor if that seems too much, instead paint around the furniture or pick one area of the room.  I’ve even seen kids rooms where they’ve painted a hopscotch board!  So many ways to get creative with your floors.

Painting your floors is a great way to brighten a room that already has floors down and also a cost-effective way to re-decorate a kids room or to refresh tired carpets.  You can lay down some inexpensive flooring from places like Carpetright and then customsie it so it is totally unique to you.  And it’s such a fun way to add some character to a room, especially a kids room.
