Paint the Floor. Painting the floors can open up a world of design possibilities, especially if you choose to paint or stain a concrete floor. For modern simplicity, a bold, solid color or bright white works well. You can also imitate the look of traditional checkerboard tile with two contrasting paint colors. Concrete floors look especially sleek with an ultra-shiny coat of epoxy that reflects light back into the space. Concrete can also be stained for a more subtle finish that imitates the look of quarried stone or marble for a more natural look.
Create Texture. For a more interesting look, customize any of these paint ideas with textured paint treatments. Traditional techniques include rag rolling, stippling, and marbling to create a look with more than one color. Though faux painting techniques can take practice to master, curious DIYers can purchase specialized brushes and rollers to achieve the look in less time. Adding texture to the walls or ceiling can make your living room feel instantly more luxurious, especially if you limit the technique to an accent wall and use a neutral palette with only a fine degree of contrast between shades to keep the treatment subtle.
