Exactly What Colors You Should Be Painting Your House in 2017

White Painted Hardwood Floors

Do You Adore White Painted Floors?

White painted floors are a trend I'm fearful of. First and foremost, it's a semipermanent look that may go out of style in no time. Secondly, while plenty of hardwood floors are trashed after years of wear and tear, that's not to say they can't be repaired with some TLC. Thirdly, dirt and scuff marks are magnified against the white background.

All that said, these floors do look magnificent, don't they? (Admittedly, they've been shined and perfectly well-lit for a shelter magazine shoot.)
How do you feel about the trend? Would you consider painting yours white?

Absolutely, they're just so posh...if my New York City apartment wound't be a rental that is something that i'll do for sure.

i grew up not wearing shoes indoor also, as did my husband. dirt was not an issue when we redid our condo with white 'wood' floors (markland from ikea) and everyone thought it looked great. by the ways not wearing shoes indoors was recently recomended to prevent/reduce exposure to cancer causing pesticides that we walk on outdoors. anyways we wanted to redo because the bedroom carpet was getting yucky and the birch laminate was also nothing great. i really miss them as we had to move out of the too small condo. if i was lucky enough to buy a house with hardwood floors i would probably only paint them white if they were really ugly (i dont care for red/orangey wood)

I love the look of it like I love the look of a good white couch but I would never get it because of the dirt factor.

I love our white floors. They really help brighten our home, particularly during the long dark winters. As for dirt, well it's not an issue since it's considered rude to wear shoes indoors here in Scandinavia. :)
