Wood floor

We are on a very limited budget and have carpeting that will need replacing before long. I would like hardwood flooring or laminate it probably won't fit the budget. Is there a way to just paint old wooden floors that would look acceptable?

Re: Wood floor

Do you have any idea what you have under the carpet.

If it is hardwood you could refinish it or there are several different painted techniques that can be applied.

You might want to take a look here http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/gallery-painted-kitchen-floors-093638 for some examples.

If you are really artistic http://www.southernaccents.com/decorating/style-design/steps-beautifully-painted-floors-00400000025728/
You can even go to a site like http://www.artsparx.com/floor_painting_intro.asp and get the free basic mebership and down load tutorials.
