Painting floors with a checkerboard pattern is a very popular choice. It is classic and fun at the same time. Here the colors, a beautiful combination of blue and caramel, are what make this particular checkerboard floor unique.
Painting wood floors with crisp white paint is also a popular choice. Here the result is just great. The wide white planks add to the fresh modern appeal and create a wonderful sense of movement against the ceiling beams running in an opposing direction.
A beautiful country classic. The worn black and white paint on the floor could not have more character. Painted floors seem to look best when the paint begins to wear off, showing the planks of the flooring.
I would love to see a closer photo of this room and floor. The floor design appears to be painted and if so, what a remarkable design with an outstanding result. The floor most certainly is the star of this room!
The checkerboard pattern on the floor in this kitchen is stained, but please let me include it here! It is a beautiful example of how adding a special treatment to the floor can bring character to a design. The dark color on the floor is repeated in the pendants above the island and the island itself, with deep turquoise cabinetry bringing saturated color to the space.
This room and the following room show the floors which inspired this Ideabook. The first is a blue boys room with floors that seriously needed attention prior to being painted white...
...and the second, a boys room in green. When refinishing the floors was not an option, painting proved to be a solution which brought a fresh bright style to each bedroom.
And speaking of green rooms with painted floors, this kitchen boasts an unusual color palette with deep green walls and dark blue cabinetry. The floor follows the lead of these colors and is painted a deep blue along with a bright white. Add the large white chandelier and vintage style refrigerator and this becomes a space full of unique style.
