Whitewashing wood is a simple technique that can give your wood floors an interesting decorative touch.
- Whitewashing floors is a good technique to brighten a room that is very dark. The addition of white to the wood reflects light and makes the room brighter.
- Another good reason to whitewash floors is because it is a great way to coat an uneven or badly damaged wooden floor that you may not want to sand and refinish in the traditional hardwood manner. A good coat of whitewash followed by a sealer will make your floor a beauty point rather than an eyesore.
