Garage Floor Paint Options

Let’s face it, no matter how clean the garage is, the floor is often less than desirable! Stains, dirt and other unwanted markings can make the garage appear junky. What’s the solution? How about a painted floor?! A high-gloss floor paint is a popular choice, and epoxy paint is increasingly being utilized as a tough yet aesthetically pleasing solution. The photos below will open your eyes to a range of garage paint possibilities. [photo from Garage Decor and Designs]

Keeping It Simple

Have you ever seen a photo of a painted garage floor and assumed that any old high-gloss paint could duplicate the look? Chances are, it was a latex acrylic paint or an epoxy coating. Why go with epoxy? It’s durable, stain resistant and easy to clean! [photo from Home Decorating Ideas and Tips]

Many folks opt for a grey floor, because this neutral hue is close in tone to the garage concrete we’re all used to looking at! Yet a grey acrylic latex or epoxy paint gives a cleaner look and can camouflage a splotchy floor. [photo by: John D Hayes of OpenHomes, from Cardea Building Co.]

Epoxy Solutions

We now zone in on epoxy possibilities, specifically the decorative chips and flakes you can add to the mix. From neutral hues to colorful statements, the result is a smooth yet textured display with many dimensions. Read on for details… [photo from The Closet Doctor via Houzz]

Decorative chips and flakes add texture, which is visually interesting. Plus, they make the floor less slippery than a pure epoxy coating. Not to mention, if there are any irregularities in the underlying floor, the chips and flakes will hide them. Below we see epoxy flooring from Mile High Coatings:

Try adding flakes in a bold color for a special touch. While the light grey speckled epoxy coating below is anything but loud, the blue flakes are a bit unexpected, creating vibrant interest. [photo from Mile High Coatings]

The granite feel of epoxy with flakes is even more striking when an ultra bold color is involved, such as electric blue. For a real showstopper, don’t limit the powerful color to the flakes. Let the whole floor be radiant, as shown below! [photo from Garage Doctors]

Decorative chips come in a variety of colors, and some retailers even let you customize the mix of hues. Below we see white, light grey, black and blue chips in irregular shapes. In fact, the irregularity of these pieces is what makes them so interesting. [photo from Do It Yourself Epoxy Floor Coating Systems]
