Awesome floor ideas to spruce up your garage.

A garage can be turned into anything you want these days. Garage floor ideas. Who says it is just for storing your car? A garage can be used as a workshop for any hobby or as a fun place to relax and hang out. When it comes to flooring options, there are tons of ways to cover, protect, and make your garage floor look very cool!

Our garage floors take a beating from the elements and everything that is tracked in by your car and shoes. It is a good idea to add some protection, whether it be a protective coat of paint, shiny epoxy, or mats or tiles. Gone are the days of a dull gray concrete grease-stained garage floor. Depending on the look you are going for, garage flooring can be super cheap or cost a few hundred dollars.

Concrete floor paint is the least expensive option when it comes to changing the look of your garage. It is a great DIY job that only requires a few steps. Touch-ups are a breeze, keep that paint handy whenever the coating chips. If you are looking for a simple, clean, and matte finish, latex is the way to go. For a high gloss look, oil paint is the perfect match.

Epoxy paint is a great way to give your floors a unique personalized look. Choose from any color in the rainbow and even through in some glitter flakes for a dazzling finish. Epoxy is a little more involved than just painting and takes some prep work and a few layers to get in right. The results can be spectacular!

For a more natural earthy look, a concrete stain is the best choice. The dye soaks into the floor, giving it a pigmented marble look. After a few coats of stain, your floor will also need a couple of coats of urethane sealer to help protect it.

If you want to go all out and give your floor a completely new look, garage floor coverings could be your answer. They come in roll out mats and interlocking tiles. The homeowner can do most floor coverings, but it can be expensive depending on the quality of the tiles or mat. The upside is any cracks and stains are instantly hidden, and your garage is transformed into a stunning space.
