Tag Archives: hardwood flooring


We’ve usually had wood floors in our homes over the years. Always in light wood too. The last house we lived in, we painted the floors white. Gloss lacquered white floors throughout the upper level. Really nice but oh so hard to keep clean, especially with a black labrador. Black lacquered floors are also extremely appealing. But I must say that I probably prefer hardwood flooring if there is to be painted surfaces. It’s important that the wood slats are visible through, to avoid a flat & bland expression. Painted & lacquered concrete is not to bad either for that matter. The limit for me, is probably black or white. Although I think it is neat with green, yellow or red floor, I find it hard to see that I could cope with the colors in the long run. Here are some variations of flooring solutions – with not overly strong colour choices.
