I am a huge fan of white floors. We have just had 9″ white French oak installed throughout entire house and could not be happier. So far, we are finding it kid and dog friendly. 🙂 We live at the beach and there’s an incredible amount of natural light that reflects from the sea. White floors compliment and enhance the lighting making everything feel airy and fresh. Whitewashing, lime finish, pickling, dry brushing, bleaching and simply painting white paint directly onto the wood are different techniques to obtain a lighter wood finish. Traditionally, Scandinavian homes would whitewash their floorboards for the added brightness they gave a room….understandable considering their long, dark winters. Today, whitewashed floors are more and more popular because of their versatility and ability to complement most interiors.
