Paint a Wooden Floor

The big idea: Paint an overscale pattern on the floor for high drama. Whether you choose a bold, geometric design or solid wash of color, a painted floor makes a big impression.

Notice the details: Durable porch paint and a polyurethane topcoat allow a floor to withstand foot traffic. If you prefer a worn look, skip the topcoat and use latex paint that will chip and scratch naturally.
