A garage can be much more than a place to keep your car away from the elements. It can also be where you store your gardening tools, where you hang up your bicycles, where your kids practice their music or where you fix up broken toys and furniture. It’s a storage unit, a workshop. It might even become a weekend hangout when the weather’s bad and the back patio is out of the question. For a room that can be used for so many things and hold so many memories, a bare, dingy floor simply won’t do. Refinished concrete, on the other hand, is durable enough to stand up to years of car tires and carpentry projects but still be sleek and attractive. Here are four of our favorite garage floor looks…
Transform your basic concrete into something more organic with our natural stone stamps and stains. These are particularly popular for patios, pool decks and driveways but they have their own place in the garage as well. A stone-style border, for example, will give your parking zone some extra polish. If you already have stacked stone on your home’s exterior or a stone patio or walkway, concrete stone in the garage can help create a more unified architectural story.
Real tiled floors in a garage are far less practical than a tiled pattern created with our decorative coatings. Grout and porous ceramics are hard enough to keep looking clean indoors. Just imagine how they’d look in garage. Our resurfacing system can be used to create convincing tile patterns. Stamp in a pattern of perfectly square tiles to create a classic, orderly look or use a combination of rectangular tile shapes to give those garage floors a more abstract appearance.
One of the special finishes we offer at Concrete Resurfacing Products, that’s also quite popular for refinished garages, is the speckle pattern. A finely speckled floor brings texture and visual interest to a room where key design characteristics like these are often ignored. On top of being pretty and textural, these floors disguise stray stains well. They’re similar in appearance to a granite countertop with a small-scale grain. We can create many different speckle colors including all sorts of grays and tans, even off-white.
Make the garage a warm and welcoming place to come home to every evening and walk into every morning with a warm brownstone colored stain. Concrete staining is one of our specialties here and it’s an incredibly easy process to do, indoors or out. Frequently, we recommend combining a color stain with a stamp process to make a look you’ll love!
