Painted Wooden Floors

Just like your walls, you can also paint your floors with patterns. Consider the pattern show in the photo for a modern touch to your space. Pick out a pattern that you like and blow it up to your preferred size. Once done, you can use the printout as your stencil. Don’t forget to seal the painted floor, so the paint won't fade easily.

Bottle Cap Floor

Now here’s a really cool and quirky floor project that you should try: bottle cap mosaic floor! All you have to do is gather enough bottle caps to cover an entire room’s floor. No need to worry if you weren't able to collect enough caps! You can just choose a part of the floor that you want to cover and it can serve as a focal point in the area.
