If you want to add instant cottage style to a room try painted floors. Painted floors are a great way to completely change the look and feel of a room. Floors painted with a light color will lighten and brighten the darkest of rooms.
Painted floors are also a practical and low cost solution for damaged wood floors. Experts recommend using an oil based porch and floor paint. As with any paint job – preparation is key. We recommend a visit to your local paint shop for the proper materials and “how to”. Painted floors are easy to clean with a quick swipe of a mop and soapy water. Although these floors wear well you do need to be comfortable with some scratches and nicks. These imperfections just add to the cottage charm.
Here are a few rooms for inspiration.
