A floor is the bottom surface of a room or vehicle. Floors vary from simple dirt in a cave to many-layered surfaces modern technology. Floors may be stone, wood, bamboo, metal, or any other material that can support the expected load.
The levels of a building are often referred to as floors although a more proper term is story or storey.
Floors typically consist of a subfloor for support and a floor covering used to give a good walking surface. In modern buildings the subfloor often has electrical wiring, plumbing, and other services built in. As floors must meet many needs, some essential to safety, floors are built to strict building codes in some regions.

    Painting my garage

    I’m looking to paint my garage walls and possibly floor as I’m sick of all the concrete dust everywhere. Has anyone got any recommendations regarding paint and possibly floor covering? Do the breeze blocks absorb a lot of the first coat of paint?

    Worth biting on a "2 week floor model" CX?

    There is a local B&M store offering a 48" CX "2 week floor model that's in otherwise brand new shape" for $1k, but I think it's likely I can knock off another hundred or two if I visit in-person. Should I bite? I heard it's not reliable to count on checking the runtime of the TV since it can...
