Painting Wooden Floors
Painting wooden floors can be a “no, no” in the eyes of many in the flooring industry, yet others feel it is by no means the bad idea that some seem to think. Painting any kind of floor can be a fine way to completely refresh the look of a home, and it is certainly considerably cheaper to repaint any kind of flooring, including a somewhat tired looking wooden floor, than it would be to rip it out and install entirely new flooring or even to have to undertake a complete wood floor restoration programme.
Wooden floors that have been painted white are a particular favourite of some. Houses with white floors do tend to have a feeling of brightness and cleanliness upon entering them, and also allow the furniture in the home the opportunity to shine. In addition, painted floors can also be handy for adding personal touches to the home as well as to cover over any flaws in the existing form of flooring, such as cracks or discolouration.
It must be said that some critics are vehemently opposed to the notion of painting wooden floors in particular, believing that it takes away the natural beauty of the wood. However, white painted floors in particular are very good at brightening, lightening and even adding the feeling of enlarged space to an entire home. If considering painting your wooden floors, always ask for advice from an expert before commencing the operation and prepare the floors accordingly.
