Hardwood floors have been all the rage ever since people started getting the idea of ripping up their carpets a couple decades ago. But painting those floors? Madness! However, some designers are rethinking that long-held taboo, saying that it’s a great way to add some color, vibrancy, and depth to any room. And, this “new” style of decorating isn’t that new at all – historians point out that in the 1800’s and even further back, painting wood floors was standard practice.
- Wood floors have been popular again now for decades – but painting them? That’s something we don’t see every day.
- However, more and more designers are taking this step, grasping the opportunity to add another dimension to rooms.
- Plus, there is historical precedent for doing so – in the 1800’s, painted floors were the norm in residential construction.
