Tips for painting floors

A few points to remember when painting floors

Consider the supplies that you use to paint your floors. Do not use regular paint. You are better off using paint that is durable and made for floors by paint manufacturers. There are floor paint products out there that will keep your paint long-lasting and strong and you want to use at least a semi-gloss finish. Remember, you will most likely want to also vacate the space for several days as the coats dry to save yourself from the strong fumes.

If you are painting more than your floors, always save the floors for last. The last thing you want is to paint from the walls or ceiling to drip down onto your freshly painted floors. This will save you extra work from repainting or cleaning up an accidental mess. You also do not want to paint yourself into a corner, so have an escape route in mind like starting from the opposite side of the door and backing your way out.

Painted floors require slightly more maintenance compared to other types of flooring such as porcelain, tile, or concrete. This is because the coats will eventually run down, or scratches may appear. In order to keep your painted floors nice and fresh-looking, our design experts suggest repainting every couple of years. Therefore, it may be easier to go with a solid color versus a more detailed pattern. But if you do choose to go with a pattern-painted floor, we recommend sealing the paint with coats of polyurethane for that extra durable touch.

Cleaning painted floors

How to clean your painted floor

Taking good care of your painted floors will be well worth your time in the long term. By cleaning your painted flooring now, you will save time and money on a large cleaning or upgrade later. Dusting crumbs, dirt, or sand will help prevent your floors from wearing down and scratching. Following up with vacuuming regularly or using a microfiber mop is best in a continuous motion rather than going back and forth to get the best results!

Avoid using water if you have hardwood floors. Avoid using this moisture-based technique as the moisture and heat can cause damage to the floorboards. Avoid using wax or water-based floor cleaners or polish. Some of these products leave a harmful residue with toxins that will also strip your floor. Polyurethane is good for coating the painted floors but refrain from using oil-based products since it can give your newly painted floor a tint of yellow or orange. The options are endless when it comes to painting your floors. Painted floors are budget-friendly, require good upkeeping, and there are so many different styles to choose from from bold and moody, to bright and fun.
