Thanks so much Lettie. I am actually making a photographic studio in my current bedroom. The floors under the carpet are old chipboard so I bought I may just lay plywood and paint it. I was thinking a vivid white on the floor and natural white on the walls and ceilings. This is the before pictures. Front and back. Mind the mess!!

Would you suggest to paint or stain the floor to get that white wood floor that shows some wood grains, but be really white? Any stain I see does not make the floor really white...just white washed. I want white. Should I paint? If I do, how will it hold up with wear and tear?
