What kind of paint should you choose to paint a floor?
Floors are a great place to use paint. It’s unexpected and can add color, style, and energy to your room. My first choice is to use Benjamin Moore’s Latex Floor & Patio Enamel (satin finish). To ensure an extra layer of protection, use a top coat of StaysClear acrylic polyurethane (water borne). (The StaysClear flat will also help to dull the satin gloss of the Floor & Patio Enamel’s satin gloss.)
Our products come with great details about preparation right on the label, and you can always talk to your local Benjamin Moore retailers -- they are truly the experts when it comes to paint processes and techniques that lead to a beautiful project. The Moore’s Latex Floor & Patio Enamel is available in our 1, 2, and 3 base colors, which means the lighter colors in our palette. For a deep black or dark chocolate floor, I recommend moving to an alkyd or epoxy product. With more than 3,500 colors to choose from, I’m sure there’s a color that will reflect each person’s personal style!
