White floors

Posted March 04, 2010 by Christina

Yesterday's post made me wonder.. are white floors a good idea?

Lovely to look at, but I sure wouldn’t want to try to keep them clean. In my house, with my perpetually muddy 8 year old and a dog? Ha!

They look stunning, but they don’t seem practical for everyday living.

I love white floors and recently layed them in two rooms… but fact is you see a lot on them but it is the best room I ever had to wake up in or to wander around as it makes you really happy!

A Perfect Gray

I am thinking a flat white, painted board, very rubbed down, worn, kinda thing would be REAL good. In a photo at least. . .Could I live with it. . .?

I don´t like white floors in this apartement, mayby it´s beacause the apartement is high up and Tine´s house is on the ground, I don´t know. Maybe it´s the colors beige and yellow with white is not a good combo.

Yeah…I think they look great in photo’s…but probably a PIA in real life. Real life with dogs and kids and perpetually moving furniture!

Only if no one in your home wears shoes….we have light maple floors, which I love because we get so little natural light in the house….but I spend a lot of time cleaning black heel marks…everyones’ shoes makes marks…sorry.

I’ve always loved the look but have always been afraid to try it! It looks great though!
