Choosing The Right Colors To Paint Your Garage

Choosing the right colors for the garage is just as important as picking colors for rest of the home. Choose complementary colors over contrasty colors.

Choosing The Right Color

Right now, a lot of us are still social distancing and staying home during this pandemic. Spending an extensive amount of time at home has forced us to relax a little and spend time on our homes and more importantly, on ourselves. In the meantime, we’ve picked up new hobbies like baking banana bread, moving around furniture, buying new patio sets, making tie-dye shirts, gardening and so on. We are sitting at home and looking around the house trying to find projects that will consume our creative minds..

I get it, I can say that I began to clean up around the house and even completed some small home improvement projects because I feel I have more free time at home. Recently I cleaned up the garage all by myself because I never had the time to do it before. Now, I can attest that it makes my home look a million times better… no more cobwebs, leaves and dust. Large areas like the garage are have essential uses for parking our cars, organizing holiday decorations, tools and equipment or maybe your garage is a playroom or a home gym. Whatever it is utilized as, the garage can become a multi use space that you can enjoy with family and friends all while increasing the value of your home.

If you are in the early phases of renovating your garage or are thinking about it, you are probably pondering all of the different things you could do, what to add and maybe even take away. It could be furniture, floor coatings, storage space or wall paint. Whatever it is, you may find yourself with a tough decision when it comes to the design and colors you want to embolden this large space with. This is very important because colors can complement each other and make your garage look aesthetic and beautiful, but sometimes colors can clash. The colors of the walls, storage systems, and floors are really up to you, but here are a few guidelines that can help with choosing the right color combinations for your garage.

Choosing The Right Color Paint For Your Garage

Try to bring together all the colors of your home and its environment to really highlight the improvements and aesthetic of your home. Aim to create a fun and enjoyable environment that you’ll love to spend time in and that will increase your home’s value.

Follow our recommendations and your garage will become your new favorite space in your home. The wall color in your garage is a huge deal as it complements the aesthetic and can set a light tone in the area. Picking the right wall color can be difficult, but instead brainstorm about how bright you want your garage to be. If you plan to use the garage as a workshop, you want good lighting, therefore you should pick lighter colors. Remember, choosing white can be great as it will create lots of light, but it can feel boring and shows dirt quite easily. Light gray, tan, beige, yellow, and light blues are some popular wall colors because it allows light to come in and it isn’t so high maintenance when it comes to dust and scuffs. Contrasting those colors you could make a statement and invoke lots of emotion with dark and bright colors such as a deep and dark red, bright yellow, dark blue, or even black.

Choosing The Right Garage Floor Color

Garage floor coatings can be a great investment in improving the look and function of your garage. They provide a decorative and protective finish to the existing concrete making it easier to clean and providing vibrant color to the space. Floor coatings have become increasingly popular in commercial and residential garage applications because they are high performance and low maintenance. Whether your garage is used as a workshop or an area to hang out, you will want an easy to clean floor that also looks good and complements the aesthetic of your overall garage and home.

There are many types of floor coatings and their physical qualities vary drastically. From acrylic floor coatings to epoxy, polyurethane and polyaspartic chemistry, these coatings vary in adhesion, durability, price and customization. Floor coatings can be as simple as a solid color or use pearlescent metallic pigments and even flooring chips and flakes, the color options you have are truly endless.

Slide-Lok recommends you choose an epoxy or polyaspartic garage floor coating for their relatively good price and high performance qualities. As for colors, when it comes to the garage floor we've seen it all done before, and I mean we've seen it all! From entire glitter floors to all black and gold colors and even glow in the dark floors. Personally I love colors that are complementary to the overall aesthetic of the garage and home, but don't let that shy you away from fun colors such as red, green, blue or even gold. It is your space, make it fun and choose a color option that you will love seeing everytime you step into your garage.

Choosing Garage Storage Systems and Accessories

Garage Storage System

Consider adding additional garage storage such as slatwall, overhead storage racks, wall shelves, or even cabinets. There are a lot of accessories to choose from, but taking the time to measure your area and plan for what your garage would need most is a really good way to get started. As far as color, go for complementary colors that go well with your wall and floor colors. Slatwall for instance comes in 3 colors: graphite, beachwood and silver. Depending on your garage’s aesthetic these items could be the focal point of your garage, really highlighting your tools, gardening equipment or cleaning supplies.

Choosing The Perfect Garage Door Color
Painted Garage Doors

The garage door is the largest entry point of the house that can make or break the aesthetic of your home. For example, a faded garage door can make your house look older, but a newly painted door can make your house look beautiful and can increase the value in your home. When it comes to color, you really want the garage door to pop, to do this repaint the door and surrounding trim so that it complements the exterior paint of the house. If you want to go the traditional route, paint a few shades darker than the exterior paint. You want to make sure that the color you choose is not too contrasting or is not the same color of your house. Doing this can make your home look overwhelming or make the garage door invisible.
