While design ideas for the painted wood floors are plenty, the hottest trends today are stenciled floors and painted floor rugs. And this can be a fantastic DIY project. You can paint a gorgeous faux rug by hand or with stencils. And there are lots of stencils available. Mix-and-match patterns, geometric shapes, colour or monochrome designs can be accomplished with stencils when painting rugs on decks or decorating your bedroom, and there are many creative ideas available.
If you don’t feel comfortable (yet) painting your porch then start with a doormat. You can always replace it later.
If painting the entire floor with stenciled patterns sounds like a lot of work then maybe a painted rug will do. You don’t have to cover a large area to produce the most unusual and beautiful effect. Just paint a small rug on your wood floor and it will change the look of your room tremendously.
