Deck Paint, for interior floor?

2 Replies

So my units both have hardwood floors, which are in excellent shape (structurally at least). Both have painted floors on the ground level, with the nicer finish upstairs in the bedrooms. 

Without going into a full blown refinishing the floor, is deck paint a good option for the floor inside?
I figure since it will get a lot of traffic, that stuff would be more durable/more protection. Or do they specifically sell hardwood flooring paint?

You can use floor and deck paint.  Consider if you are renting and the property needs to have a lead inspection how the local lead guidance would consider a painted floor.  Rhode island considers it a friction surface.
