How to Pick the Best Garage Floor Paint [Color Guide]


If you’re trying to choose what color to paint your garage floor, it can be really frustrating trying to pick a color, right?

There’s just so many options that you can choose from.

Sure…if you like gray , dark gray or tan, you can find that anywhere.

But I’ve seen some garage floors with really amazing paint jobs. I just had to know where they got it.

I did a few hours of research and came up with a list of every garage floor paint color available for sale in the United States, Canada, UK or Australia.

If you live in one of those areas, you’re probably finding it tough to choose a floor paint color too.

There’s one important detail to mention before we start:

There are no affiliate links in this post. Any external links you see here will go straight to the manufacturer’s websites.

So with that out of the way, let’s see what paint colors are out there for your garage floor.

How The Garage Floor Paint Color Guide Is Set Up

What I did was go to all of the major hardware store’s web sites and see what brands they sold. This included:

  • United States: Lowe’s, Home Depot, Ace Hardware, True Value
  • Canada: Canadian Tire, Home Hardware
  • United Kingdom: Homebase, Wickes
  • Australia: Bunnings

I only listed each store once, even if it has locations in different countries. For example, Home Depot is found in both the US and Canada so I listed it once.

Complete List of Garage Floor Paint Colors

Let’s get to the list. Each company is listed in alphabetic order with a brief description of the company and where they’re located. There’s also details on the paint itself.

After that is what you’re really looking for. There is a color palette showing every available color for each type of paint.

Choose which type of garage floor paint will be best for you based on the look you want to achieve.

Armor Garage Colors

Armor Garage is a it of an oddball. They’re based out of Miami and New Jersey and have the most expensive epoxy floor coat on this list.

That’s because their epoxy “is 100% solids military grade aliphatic epoxy which cannot be compared to water based, hybrid cyclioalipahatic epoxies or high solids epoxies which we only use as primers.”

They have two versions of their epoxy floor coatings. Their Armor Chip epoxy coating is 19 mils thick and retails for $568. Armor Granite is 23 mils thick and retails for $889.

Drylok as two product lines that would work to pant your garage floor.

The Drylok Latex Concrete Floor Paint is a latex-based paint, so it’s not the most durable. However, it’s very affordable and has a drying time of only four hours.

It’s available in several different colors: White, Terra Cotta, Persian Red, Soft Gray, Gull, Dover Gray, Georgetown Gray and Bamboo Beige. There are also four additional tints available: Caramel, Platinum, Spruce and Deep Charcoal.

The Drylok E1 1-Part Epoxy Floor Paint is an epoxy-based paint. That’s going to be different than the epoxy floor coatings than you’ll see elsewhere on this list.

Epoxy paint offers more durability than the latex concrete floor paint, but not as much as a true epoxy coating.

It’s available in two colors, Gray and Platinum. It’s also available in several different tints: Arctic White, Platinum, Gray, Dark Gray, Harvest Brown, Natural Sand, Chestnut, Stone Blue, Sky Blue, Sage and Terra Cotta.

Drylok garage floor paints are available in the US at Home Depot and Ace Hardware. I’ve also featured Drylok paints to help waterproof my garage walls.

It comes in base colors of Clear, Steel Gray, Gray and Tan. But you can use any of the metallic additive colors as well.

ROKREZ DIY isn’t as hardcore as ROKREZ PRO, but that doesn’t mean it’s a lightweight either.

It’s a thick, self-leveling two-part epoxy coating that is up to twenty times stronger than many other DIY epoxy floor coatings. Kits are available for one-car and two-car garages in Gray, Dark Gray and Tan.
