My latest DIY project that I want to tackle in the house is my kitchen floor.
I’ve been dreaming of round penny tile, but my dream comes with a rather large price tag so for the time being I’ve been trying to think of an inexpensive fix.
My mind has been wandering to stripes.
In this tiny kitchen it looks like a simple rug was used to get the desired effect. My kitchen is a bit larger so I don’t think this would work for me.
Totally in love with these black and wood stripes and that coat of high gloss on top of it, but in my space black would be too severe.
These stripes were done with linoleum tiles. Now I was okay with this idea, but Jon’s not too happy of having to apply tiles to only remove them in a couple of months when we do tile.
I love the white wash stripes in this kitchen.
Ah the picture that started my obsession! This kitchen belongs to Nora Fleming. Her wood floor was beat up so she decided to cover some of the damage up with white painted stripes.
Now since I know tile floors are in the near future I really don’t want to make a huge mess in my kitchen with sanding, etc. But all of these pictures from above really have me wanting to try it out. Perhaps I’ll love it so much that I won’t want tile!
I think I have thought of a solution to my sanding problem. I’m going to test out a small area and see how it goes and then I’ll report back to you!
What do you have in your kitchen? Is it tile, wood, linoleum? Have you ever painted the floor? Any tips?
