Can we paint the beams of another color? They are dark brown and this color obscures the interior of our house. In addition, the floor of the 1st floor is leaning: when you walk you feel the floor not right. How to do?

For your beams, the best is to strip them, to possibly take advantage of them to treat them, then to paint them or to stain them in a clear shade.

In the case of the false level of your floor, it would be best to establish a dry screed and to "throw" a particleboard floor or plasterboard over the floor. Refer to our DRY SEAT sheet.
