Matching Your Exterior Home Colors & Garage Floor Coatings
Exterior home colors can vary based on region, climate, and personal preference, but some popular colors in recent years include gray, white, beige, blue, green and red. When selecting a garage floor coating, the decorative chip blend you choose does not have to match the exterior, but it often helps tie everything together. This is especially true if the coatings go beyond the garage door, onto the concrete apron. Floor and exterior color may also matter more if the garage doors are frequently open and entertaining occurs in the garages (think picnics and parties).
