California 49's Profile
|Display Name:||California 49|
What do people think of painted concrete floors? My husband and I just moved into a California ranch style home with lots of unfinished concrete flooring (living room, dining room, master bedroom). I'm originally a New England girl and am partial to wood floors, so I'm not sure how to react to all this concrete. It kind of makes me feel like we're living in a garage. But I am loving the floor-to-ceiling windows that let in TONS of light and give us sweeping views of vineyards. With this in mind, we are considering painting the floors a deep blue (in between a navy and a midnight blue). There is so much light in the house, that I'm not worried that it would create a darkening effect. But I'm intimidated to start painting, as it would make for a big change that would be hard to reverse if we didn't like it. Maybe we should consider a varnish to shine it up instead of paint? Any thoughts from those with more familiarity with concrete styling would be hugely appreciated!
