Studio floor painted in progress! (Also, three options for my floor checked)

I’ve lastly reached the purpose in my painted studio flooring mission the place I really feel like I am making good progress. I am having to work in sections, and the part I am engaged on proper now could be about 19.5 toes by 14 toes. As soon as this space is painted, and I give it about 24 hours to dry, I’ll cowl it up, transfer every thing to this aspect of the room, after which work on the again of this room, which is nineteen.5 toes by 7, 5ft, plus again entrance, powder room and storage room.

This weekend, I lastly obtained round to portray. After all of the prep work (sanding, sanding, and extra sanding, extra wooden filler, sanding once more, prepping, and extra sanding), I used to be prepared for the enjoyable half. The portray! I did a coat of primer and two coats of porch and flooring paint. I made a decision to do the grey colour as the bottom colour, after which I am going to return and do the white checkerboard design on the grey.

So that is the darker colour of the 2. That is about as darkish as the ground goes to get. And I used to be impressed with how clear and glossy this gentle grey regarded in opposition to the unique flooring. I knew the white would look actually clear and brilliant in opposition to it, however I did not count on the sunshine grey to be such an incredible distinction.

Right now, I will be prepared to start out gluing the design and portray the checkerboard sample white on the ground. This would be the enjoyable a part of watching the flooring go from a plain, strong colour to a enjoyable design.

However there’s a small drawback. I will be prepared to start out etching and portray this afternoon, and but I have never determined precisely how I need to do the flooring. I do know I need a checkerboard flooring. That a part of the plan is solidified in my thoughts and I can’t doubt or change my thoughts. However what I have never determined but is whether or not or not I need a border across the wall (I feel so), and if I make a border, does the border simply comply with the wall? Or does the sting comply with the wall and cupboards?

This is what the ground would appear to be if I simply did a easy checkerboard design throughout all the space. It appears to be like a little bit heavy on me, though in actuality it in all probability would not be, because the white and grey I am utilizing are far more refined than the colours I’ve used on this photograph. And clearly the pink areas are the place my cupboards might be. That is in all probability not precisely to scale.

I actually like the concept of ​​a border, although. And I like the concept of ​​utilizing the 2 colours to distinguish the completely different areas. And since I made a decision on the checkered flooring, I had it in my head that an edge would accompany the partitions and cupboards, like this…

However now I am doubting. Maybe the sting mustn’t comply with the cupboards, however simply the wall. The issue with that is that throughout all the entrance wall of the room (the wall with the 2 home windows and the wallpaper) the border can be misplaced fully if the border adopted the wall.

Then I might make the border comply with the cupboards on that wall, as the cupboards are going to go wall to wall with no gaps, after which in the remainder of the room, the border would comply with the wall. This implies I might lose among the edge underneath the cupboards on the aspect wall, however it will make all the flooring design look extra symmetrical.

*sigh* I simply do not know. The nice factor is I can go forward and begin with the checkerboard design as I’ll begin within the middle of the room after which see if I get readability as I’m going alongside. However be happy to let me know your ideas on these flooring design choices.


Within the photograph displaying the sting following the partitions and cupboards, the world across the aspect door on the proper regarded very small and dented. So I went into the studio and measured and marked how that space would truly look with a border following the entrance cupboards, the wall across the door and the aspect cupboards. Within the precise room, there’s far more area on this space for the design to “breathe”.
