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.
