Creative Painted Flooring ideas for concrete, wood, linoleum, or tile that will give your basement floor a fresh new look on a budget.
When Ken and I first painted our vinyl basement floor, we were floored, pun intended, at the remarkable difference it made. In addition, we were thrilled at how inexpensively we were able to pull off this transformation.
It is possible to update a floor with paint, whether it is wood, tile, concrete, or linoleum. Will it get wear and tear? Yes. Let’s be realistic. Paint is one of the cheapest flooring options you can probably go with, so in that sense, you get what you pay for. But it can always be your “phase one” flooring option, as you update your home.
Meaning it can be upgraded to a more expensive, yet durable flooring choice in the future, as your budget allows. In the meantime, you can enjoy it and easily do paint touch-ups. If required. At any time.
