When To Consider Floor Painting
When it comes to floor coverings, it’s easy for people’s minds to go straight to carpeting, laminate, tiles or hardwood. The idea of painting your floor might never come up in conversation as you dream about your new living room or kitchen design. If the idea of floor painting comes up at all, it is usually in the context of painting in the garage or on cement floors in the basement. But this form of floor covering is a viable option for other rooms in the house as well.
A whole new world of colour
Painting your floor opens up many colour choices for Toronto homeowners. Sure, carpeting is also available in a wide range of colours, but carpeting is quickly going out of style because of its tendency to hold in dust and other allergens.
Hardwood floors can be stained in a variety of natural colours from light honey maple, to rich reds and browns – but floor paint can go far beyond those options. If your inner interior designer is just dying to play with rich blues, teals, aqua marines, pinks, corals or mauves, then floor paint is a relatively easy and inexpensive way to do this.
Keep in mind as well, that you’re under no obligation to paint a single colour from wall to wall. With a little patience and skill, floor paint can be made to look like stone tiles or laminate with alternate or blending colours.
If you entertain guests who keep their shoes on, they might not even be able to tell the difference!
Easy and inexpensive
The range of difficulty in laying down flooring can vary greatly depending on the type of flooring that the home owner is installing. While rolling out a sheet of laminate is one of the simplest methods, it is still not easier than putting down a fresh coat of paint. And it’s certainly easier (and less messy!) than having to cut floorboards.
Paint is also usually your least expensive option. So if you’re a person who likes to redesign your space frequently, it can be a wonder choice which could save you thousands over the length of time you spend living in your home.
Keep in mind
While painting your floor is a fairly simple design method, it is important to remember that it does take a bit of preparation and planning. Furniture will have to be moved out of the room that you are painting and you’ll have to plan your starting and ending point so that you don’t end up painting yourself into a corner.
