If you’ve never thought about how to brighten up your garage, the floor is one of the best ways to start. You’ll be able to notice a significant difference as soon as you lay your eyes on a garage with a treated floor.
Below you’ll find 3 different garage flooring ideas and what to expect out of each. Not all garage floors are the same and each requires their own unique installation and preparation.
If you’re ready to amazify your garage floor, let’s get to it.
Almost all garage floors have one thing in common: concrete floors. The thing that most people overlook is how a garage floor can look when treated with the appropriate concrete sealer.
With the right polish and concrete sealer, your garage floor can get a wet look that is sure to wow anyone who takes a glance over. Your neighbors will be jealous once your concrete looks like that!
The advantage of utilizing concrete sealer is that it’s the easiest option. You only need to treat the concrete once every few years and it doesn’t require special coatings like epoxy or polyurea. It’s our favorite choice of garage flooring!
If you’re willing to shell out some money to invest in your garage flooring, epoxy is the way to go. It can last over 10 years if installed properly and you have a wide variety of options when it comes to customizing the look of your garage.
Epoxy is substantially more money to install if done by a professional. We recommend not going to the big box stores and purchasing an epoxy kit as they’re water-based epoxies that don’t last as long as solids based like the picture. It’ll only end in frustration, so ensure you’re having it professionally done if that’s the route you go down.
3. Porcelain Tile
You may be thinking, tile in your garage? You’d be right to do so, it’s an unconventional garage flooring option that most overlook. The thing about porcelain tile when you install it properly, it’s tough! You’ll be able to take a hammer to it no problem, and parking your car isn’t an issue.
The downside of tile in your garage is that it’s much more expensive than anything else. Getting professionally done tile can be a big cost.. but if you LOVE working your garage then it’s a drop in the bucket when compared to the enjoyment you’ll get out of being in your garage.
You don’t need to spend a ton of money to make your garage look professional. It’s up to you on how much you’d like to spend on treating your garage floor but always keep one thing in mind. You MUST get it professionally done or you’re at risk of wasting a whole lot of money and time.A bad epoxy job can end up costing double when you call another company to come repair the shoddy work.
Always vet your professionals and your garage floor won’t suffer from it.
