But here's the truth: I'm not brave enough.
The biggest reason that scares me is resell. Even though I am a decorator, I'm also very practical by nature (and I know it's one reason my clients chose me. I give them good looking yet practical spaces) This isn't our forever home, I estimate around 5 more years max. And we don't live in a "hip" part of town where people with nose rings and tattoos will walk in and say COOL! We live in the 'burbs, and I can just imagine potential buyers saying "White floors?! What is this, Target??"
Then there is the cleaning factor. It's white.. and we have a dog, a cat and eventually someday a kid. Who knows how white floors would do with that combo.
I'm sure there are a lot of designers out there that would say "F--- it. I want white floors, and I don't care about the consequences". But I just don't think it's in me.
It's really a shame, though.... it would be an inexpensive and very pretty (see pictures above) update to our floors. I'll have to tuck the idea of white floors into my back pocket and pull it out again someday when we have a sunroom.
