With children in the house, a painted dining room floor is the perfect alternative to a rug.



Taking a chance with a bold move can create drama in a small space.

Having a rug under a dining table isn’t the easiest thing to keep clean, so I decided to paint our floor instead. By using an epoxy paint (traditionally used on garage floors) tinted to the shade I desired, I was able to accent my dining room floor surface with the most durable paint I know of – it never stains.

I decided to paint a 6'x9' rectangle on the floor of our dining room to serve as a rug alternative.
