I moved into a new art studio a couple of months ago. It has lovely wood floors, but I found them too dark for an art studio. I also worried about damaging them (I’m just renting the space). I found an easy, affordable solution by covering most of the floor with cream-colored carpet tiles from FLOR in my new studio space, plus adding an inexpensive area rug from Home Depot for some color.
Covering the studio’s brown wood floor makes the space so much brighter. Plus, I don’t have to worry about getting paint on the floor. I can easily lift the individual tiles up, rinse them off in the kitchen sink, and then stick them back down when they are dry. Or more likely, I’ll just leave the paint on them and consider it part of the decor! Drop by and visit so you can see for yourself!
