How to Revamp Your Garage With Concrete Flooring

Your garage often serves multiple purposes, including storing your car, providing space for tools and projects, and offering an additional living area. Given how much you use it, you may want to update it. Cement floors with decorative elements make your garage functional and stylish. 

Here are a few ways to revamp concrete flooring for a garage.

1. Stamped Concrete

Concrete stamping allows you to mimic varying patterns and textures, like wood, brick or cobblestone, in your garage. Making stamped concrete involves applying a mix over the existing concrete and then placing stamps on the surface to create the texture. This revamp option creates a striking and beautiful look.

2. Polished Concrete

Polished concrete creates a shiny finish that can brighten your garage and make it appear more spacious. This effect comes from grinding a concrete surface with progressively finer grits to get the desired level of shine. This garage floor option is cost-effective and easy to clean, making it an excellent choice for a garage upgrade.

3. Stained Concrete

Concrete staining uses acid-based or water-based stains that react with the concrete to create a permanent color variation. Acid stains offer rich colors and often make a unique pattern mimicking natural stone. They take more work than water-based stains to neutralize and cure. Water-based stains have a glossy finish and usually look more like paint with less color variation.

4. Coloring

Concrete coloring involves mixing pigments into the concrete during mixing. Concrete colors include dark gray, brown, red, black, yellow, green and blue. This concrete upgrade offers the most options for personalization if you have a particular look you want to achieve with your garage’s concrete floor.
