Deciding to install an epoxy floor in your home or business is a big investment.
You want to be sure you choose the right finish and color, helping to give you a great-looking space that’s also easy to maintain.
To help you select the right epoxy floor for your project, here are 3 things to keep in mind:
Think of Your Needs
If you’re putting a new epoxy flooring finish in your sleek office building, for example, choosing a big, bold color with a shiny metallic finish might not give off the impression you’re going for.
While you may love that muted overall tone with bright chips in it, depending on where you’re putting the floor and the feel of the rest of the space, it may end up being more distracting than attractive.
Before you ever think about a type of epoxy finish or a color, think first about its use and what you’re hoping for the space to feel like once the project’s complete.
A more professional space that will get a lot of clients and customers is going to need a very different epoxy floor than a personal-use garage or man cave. Spend a little time looking at examples of epoxy flooring in a similar space to yours to give you a guide on what to choose.
Choose Your Finish
At Armor Tough Coatings, we offer two types of epoxy floor finishes: Metallic and standard, or matte.
Metallic epoxy floors finish to a lava-like pattern that offers visual interest and can distract the eye from a mess, such as on a shop floor. This finish also is more shiny than a standard epoxy floor, adding extra brightness to the space.
Standard epoxy floors have a matte finish and, depending on the color chosen, aren’t going to be as good at hiding spills.
Both finishes can look gorgeous in almost any space, so choosing your finish really comes down to a matter of personal preference over any actual functional difference.
Choosing a Color
Color can make or break the look of your finished epoxy floor.
If you choose the wrong color for your room, like choosing the wrong carpeting, it could impact the look and feel of the space. However, the right epoxy floor in the right color can elevate a space to give it a sleek, modern feel.
Epoxy floors are available in a variety of colors and many installers can custom-mix colors to give you exactly the look you want.
When choosing the color of your floor, first decide whether you want something bright and bold or a more neutral color.
Different-colored chips also can be added into many epoxy floors, giving it a different look and amping up the style of a more neutral color.
Your epoxy flooring installer can help you select the right finish and color of epoxy floor for your space, finding a way to make it work well with the other fixtures in the room.
