Interior Designers recommend painting wooden floors can transform your home
Painting wooden floors has been considered almost a taboo from quite a long time. Modi Builders, one of the top builders in Hyderabad, have broken this taboo. In their Duplex Villas at Gundlapochampally, Modi Builders have provided wooden flooring, painted in different hues to suit the moods and needs of various rooms. The feedback Modi Builders received for painted floors has been great.
On being asked why they chose painted wood floors instead of stained ones, interior designers at Modi Builders said, “Painted floors have many merits over the stained ones. First, painting a floor is a much quicker project — a light, low-dust sanding prior to priming, then one to two coats of paint that dry in mere hours. Second, paint offers superior performance. Old hardwood may have already been refinished multiple times, resulting in a floor too thin to survive another sanding. Painting doesn’t require deep sanding, which increases the floor’s life.”
When it comes to painted floors, the first concern people raise is scratching. However, this is less of a problem than one might think. Using primer and a tough grade of paint will likely prevent scratching or chipping. Porch paint works well in high-traffic settings, and higher sheens will dry harder than matte sheens. “When the floor does get a scratch, it can quickly and seamlessly touched up with a brush — something you definitely can’t do with stained floors. And like stained floors, painted wood floors can be mopped and scrubbed, with no polish required,” said an interior designer at Modi Builders.
The perks of painting wooden floors don’t end here. Paint is a great way to add a distinct style to your home by synchronizing the wooden floors with the color of furniture, drapes and walls. “We pretend that stained wood floors never go out of style, but they’re just as influenced by design trends as the colors on the walls or the drapes in the living room. If your hardwood flooring isn’t compatible with your home’s look, paint is a great way to fix that. Be it a warm or cool hue, you can quickly align your floors with the rest of your décor with paint,” explained interior designers at Modi Builders.
They added, “We got a positive feedback for the Duplex Villas at Gundlapochampally. We are looking forward to carry it (painting the floors) forward while developing the open plots in Aushapur, Hyderabad.”
