Paint The Floors! 4 Interior Design Tips

Posted on Mar 16, 2015 by

Paint experts Mylands recently announced that they’re extending their City of London collection to include paints designed for use on wooden floors. The neutral collection includes shades which take their names from London locations, such as Clerkenwell and Fitzrovia.

And we like the look so much that we went on a bit of a Pinterest hunt to track down examples of perfectly painted floors. A lick of paint could transform your home, whether it’s a bold splash of colour or evokes gritty design with faux ghost sign effects. Matte or gloss, beige or blue, the options really are endless. Here are some of our favourite looks from Pinterest for inspiration!

What a beautiful colour scheme! Soft greys, blues and cream really brighten up this room and complement the exposed brick walls and painted doors. The wide painted panels also create a sense of length and width within the space.

This modern kitchen has a clean white minimalist look, so the gloss pastel turquoise floor is a welcome jolt of colour that’s perfect for Spring!

Hold the tape! The fascination with “ghost signs”* isn’t going away. And the image above has sparked an idea. If you’re looking to make a real statement in your warehouse home, why not take inspiration straight from the factory floor and create a bold typographic statement like this one using matt paint and a template. The faded yellow and rust-brown look striking against a grey concrete floor.

This plywood floor has been given a moody black gloss treatment for an uber chic vinyl effect. We can imagine this monochrome kitchen complimented with exposed chrome bib faucet taps and heavy enamel factory lights. With the black gloss floor and our favourite white subway tiles, this promises to be a smart contemporary kitchen.
