I have been doing some CRAZY gathering of home ideas. Mainly because I know we are planning to move sometime before Ella starts school. We have looked at several houses, and one in particular had a collection of FANTASTICALLY UGLY carpets throughout. I started looking up ways to paint the floors (even sub-flooring) because I knew we wouldn’t be able to replace the carpet with wood right away. And let me TELL YOU sister sledge– there is some SWEEET painted floors out there. So when Arcadian Homes asked if they could guest post for me on painted floors, I was like HECK yeah. (also, it gives me a break). Enjoy…
Hey there! I’m Jenn a writer for Arcadian Home, a great resource for home decor items and ideas to curb your enthusiasm. One of the easiest ways to completely transform the look of a room is to paint the floors. What may seem like a daunting home decor project is actually quite simple — when carefully planned, a pattern painted on a wood floor creates instant style impact. Add a few great furniture pieces, a living room, dining room, or bedroom can instantly become magazine-worthy. Need some guidance? Here are eight painted patterned floor designs to get that decorating whistle started.
A classic black-and-white checker pattern looks fantastic in kitchens, casual eating areas and even outdoors, like this covered porch.
Butter Me Up
Don’t shy away from bold colors when exploring painted floor designs — something vibrant, such as a yellow floral motif, really “makes” the room.
Mix it up
Sometimes it’s fun to experiment with the unexpected — this geometric green and white pattern works well with black and white damask wallpaper as well as blue window treatments and a matching table lamp.
Hip to be square
Use a great painted floor design that resembles large square tiles to pull together mismatching furniture. Add a ceiling light like a giant hanging lantern and organic home accessories to complete the room.
A painted floor design in an entryway is always inviting — balance the look with similar throw cushions on a comfy bench.
A white monochromatic space is immediately jazzed up with a purple ceiling and a painted floor in similar colors. Add a modern light fixture and matching table decorations for a finishing touch.
Sweet and simple
A spacious room with high ceilings becomes more quaint with a soft checker pattern painted on the floor — add sweeping drapes and a matching shade on a lamp.
Plenty of pattern
Why stop at one or two patterns when you can outfit an entire vignette and create an instant conversation piece? Here the walls, drapes, wall art, table lamp, furniture, and floor all boast loads of texture and colour. Images ( 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8)Pin It
