A high-tech coating is the hottest trend in flooring and is giving plain, ugly concrete the wow factor. Metallic Epoxy Flooring is the popular choice for people looking to rev up their plain concrete garage floor with a snazzy makeover.

What is Metallic Epoxy Flooring?

Metallic Epoxy Flooring can make a garage, basement or man cave look stunning. Made of 100% epoxy resin with metallic pigments added, it has a high gloss finish and with a variety of different colours and visual effects to choose from, no two floors will look the same. Once the coating is put on the floor, solvents are added so the metallic pigments can be moved around to create the effect you want. Some people create dazzling three-dimensional effects such as rolling waves, moon craters, ripples or swirling, flowing lava. Or you can add a second colour to create a two-tone effect.

Is Metallic Epoxy Flooring New?

This unique and decorative flooring is relatively new. For years, homeowners have been able to transform their garages with shiny epoxy coatings, but colours like grey or beige have been the only choice with vinyl chips thrown in to add variation. Now metallic epoxy flooring offers a multitude of options allowing them to customise their garage with whatever colour combination or visual effect takes their fancy.

Why Is Metallic Epoxy Flooring So Popular?

A decorative stained concrete floor isn’t going to cut it for those who want to show off their prized possession or invite their pals along to their man cave. Metallic epoxy flooring is versatile; the design possibilities are endless and the finished effect looks sensational. As well as different colour choices, there are eye-catching patterns such as swirls and ripples to make your garage floor look like a professional showroom. The flooring is highly functional; the high-floss finish is hard as nails and can stand a lot of wear and tear from hot tyres, as well as spills from oils and chemicals. Floors are also easy to clean and maintain making them a popular choice not just for garages, but for restaurants, medical facilities, nightclubs, showrooms and many other businesses. They can also last a long time if installed properly.
