Indoor Pool Room Floor


I recently built a sunroom onto my house that contains a swimspa. The room gets some moisture but not bad. I'd like to paint the floor but am unsure which product is best. The part of the floor that needs painted is not a super high traffic area but will get some snow on it during the winter from normal traffic. Please advise. Thank you.

What's on the floor now? If it's bare concrete tile would hold up much better then paint.

Yes, the floor is concrete right now. I'd rather not do tile. I'd like to paint it so I can do the work myself. I'm not skilled enough to do tile.

Paints just going to wear off, tile should last a lifetime or more and is not all that hard to do.

You should never paint a floor, indoor, outdoor, ever.

An area like that deserves tile.

If for some reason that's not possible, stain will do. It's much better than paint.

You can do tile yourself. Just do some research and you'll come to realize that it's not all that difficult. Rent a wet saw for your cuts. It's basically spreading an adhesive (thinset) and then laying the tiles. Well, that's an oversimplification but laying tile is definitely a DIY project.

You can do ground yourself. Just do some research and you'll come to know that it's not all that complicated. Rental a wet saw for your decreases. It's usually increasing an difficult and then relaxing the flooring surfaces. Well, that's an oversimplification but relaxing ground is definitely a DIY project.

Hey, that's what I said.
Is that the Aussie version?
