There was once a time when the garage was thought to be a homeowner’s dirty little secret. Locked behind the garage door, it was a place where cobwebs and pests lurked. Garage flooring was either dirty or lost completely under a mess of clutter. Homeowners would dash from their cars to their side entrances, scurrying out of these dingy and unkempt spaces as though they were running out of a scary basement cellar.
With the help of Global Garage, times have changed. Long gone are the days when a garage was just a dingy storage spot used to keep rain off of your car. Now, garages are looking polished and put-together, and have even become the preferred spot for man caves and hobby rooms. The trick is choosing the right garage flooring. These four garage flooring design trends will help to complete the design of a garage space that is as stylish as it is functional!
A touch of texture
Whether they realize it or not, most homeowners move into homes with a kind of “textured” garage flooring. Barren concrete floors are textured in all the worst ways. Their rough and porous surface is the perfect trap for dirt, spills, and bacteria, and it makes cleaning a total nightmare that will wear down your mop and broom fast.
You don’t want garage floors that are actually textured, but the appearance is very desirable. Global Garage offers a number of polyaspartic designs that create a textured look, and they are available in a wide range of colors. Our chip system is meant to simulate textured granite or terrazzo garage flooring. Available in Coho, German Brown Trout, and more, this simulated texture option gives you all of the stain-hiding benefits without any of the clean-up complication.
Neutral colors are always in. Choosing a neutral polyaspartic stain ensures that your garage flooring matches any car color you decide on in the future. Global Garage’s polyaspartic floor stains come in Black, Decaf, Espresso, French Roast, and Latte, giving you an earthy and natural base that can complement any palette.
The rough look of barren concrete garage flooring is out. Sleek, polished garage flooring is all the rage. Every single polyaspartic coating you choose from our selection is sleek, seamless, and smooth, but our Metallic option packs the kind of sophisticated gleam that showrooms look for.
Green garage flooring
Don’t give up on our tastes just yet – this point does not actually refer to garage flooring colored green. One of the biggest trends in all areas of home design and improvement lately has been the call for eco-friendly options. Landfills are quickly nearing capacity, and global calls for sustainable home improvements are being pushed by social marketing campaigns all over the world.
When it is time for your home improvement project to be undertaken, you can choose to either be part of the problem, or part of the solution. Global Garage is proud to offer green garage flooring. Among our wide range of polyaspartic garage flooring options, we make ultra-lo VOC and zero-VOC emitting coatings available. Additionally, the durability and lifespan of our garage floor coatings have positive implications for the environment. One installation using eco-friendly materials can last for decades, which reduces the gas emissions, landfill waste, and resource harvesting required every time a new floor coating is required.
As you can see, no matter which of the latest trends you wish to follow, Global Garage has you covered. The garage has so much potential, and we make it our mission to stock our franchisees’ trailers with the most stylish and functional polyaspartic floor coatings on the market so that you can fully realize it.
