painted colorful diy floors interior design decor blue yellow pink

Michelle here, with a design challenge that’s reserved for only the boldest of decorators. If you’ve ever painted a room in your home, you’re familiar with the kind of thought and consideration that goes into choosing a wall color. That said, I tip my hat to any homemaker who’s daring enough to take the same colorful approach, and apply it to their floors. Though I’d be hesitant to experiment with the idea myself, there’s something so striking about wooden paneling in unexpected patterns and hues. Follow the jump to be floored by more mesmerizing spaces, and do tell: do you dare spruce up your home with graphic floor decor?

  1. I’m in love with the green floor! We painted the floor in our mud room red, but I think a patterned painted floor would be stunning.

    I found it difficult enough painting our bedroom floor cream!

  3. I LOOOVED the yellow one when i first saw it, but indeed it is a pro DIY! I wish I had the skills!

    Love it! The first two are my favorites.

    As a stripes fanatic, I’m definitely drawn to the last option – the perfectly regular green and white stripes strike the perfect tone between preppy and funky!

    Now that we have a flooring store I’m exposed to all types of new flooring available. My fav is LVT (luxury vinyl tiles). The best is putting in alternating colors in the same style. Its really easy and great for do-it-yourselfers! I love painted floors, they are so easy to change once you decided to go with something different too!

  11. Never have I been so intrigued by a floor before! The floor is so easily ignored. This is such a great idea. Now I can brainstorm about my new place…

  12. Kristen says:

    Wow, in the last photo, it is especially cool how the floor has its direction and the paint sort of looks like it goes the opposite way. The paint almost helps one see the parquet floor more clearly.

    Love all these floors! Does anyone know where I can find the alphabet print hanging above the bed in the first picture? I love it so much!

  14. [...] (extremely energetic) design dare. By now, you may have picked up on the fact that I tend to go gaga for graphics, and of course, ikat is no exception. Did you know that Ikat means ‘to bind,’ and is [...]
