Painted Floors

After reading a recent post in House Beautiful, I decided to do a little research on painted floors. At first, the idea of painted floors seemed cheesy and cheap to me and conjured up ideas of a painted garage floor. However, it seemed interesting to me how many well respected designers were using this technique. I must admit, my initial reaction was completely wrong and unfounded as there are some beautiful floors in chevron patterns, faux stone, and stencil – just to name a few. Check out these impressive floors. What are your thoughts?
