The charm of painted wood floors
When it comes to staying on budget in a renovation, one`s mind doesn`t exactly leap to paint. Painted wood floors are shockingly cost-effective, considering how positively luxe and unexpected they can look. All the charm of the original hardwood is maintained, but with a totally fresh, modern spin. Paint quality matters when it comes to painted wood floors. So while a certain investment in paint will be required to turn out a good result, it should still cost less than other quality flooring options. Glossier paint finishes can add flash to a room, but a matte finish can help hide scratches and dings, so something like eggshell is a good compromise.
