You can give your garage a complete facelift, if you know how to utilize different color combinations and styles. Paying attention to small details—like your garage flooring, cabinets, wall colors, and garage door style—and then coordinating everything into a theme, plays an important role in creating an inviting atmosphere.

When designing any space, think big. Use large accents and big pictures as opposed to lots of tiny, cluttery items. Large focal points catch people’s attention, without overwhelming them with tons of details.

Garages can be decorated to fit a wide range of themes, from the “man cave” look to something with a touch of femininity. Pick a color combination of two to three colors, and then carefully weave them around your garage design by adding colorful cabinets, a colored floor, and creative walls adorned with accents that match your theme. Accent your garage door with at least one of the colors you’ve chosen to pull everything together. Don’t be afraid to be bold. The interior of your garage doesn’t have to be plain, and neither do the colors you choose.

When you’re looking to say goodbye to a dull concrete floor and spruce up your garage with something more colorful, consider a FlexCore Floor Coating system, which gets rid of ugly cracks and pits, is resistant to stains, and repels substances like oil and gas. It’s slip resistant, is three to four times harder than traditional materials, and it won’t peel, chip, or blister.

Rated for commercial use, FlexCore finishes are customizable, with an extensive color palette available for you to choose from.

Redecorating doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. Grab some paint, check out some consignment stores for accents, and then get to work so that your garage can look appealing from floor to ceiling.
