We paint walls, we paint furniture, we paint accessories, we even paint the ceiling ─ but what about the floor? Yes, you can paint the floor! In fact, there are a whole lot of cool things you can do with flooring with a bit of paint. Some people are strictly against painting wood floors, but in the end it is a subjective choice that can produce some very beautiful aesthetics. You can also paint other types of floors from concrete to tile.

It can be a DIY project using stencils or freehand (just make sure you get the right kind of paint by talking to an expert at your local paint shop first) or you can call in a professional. You can paint floors in a solid color or stain, but if you really want something special and unique, consider these 10 ideas.
