Epoxy flooring is something most of us take for granted — unless your toddler spills milk all over the floor. Besides the weekly cleaning, epoxy flooring is what it is — a place to walk. However, by adding accent items throughout your home, you’ll highlight your epoxy floors and make it a place to be admired in your home and a place you and your toddler will want to play on together (and not spill!). Painting Plus of Colorado specializes in residential painting and commercial painting projects. But did you know we’ve recently added epoxy floor coating to our repertoire of services?
WHAT IS EPOXY FLOORS?
You can think of epoxy floors as a floor paint on steroids. It’s a superior floor coating made up of polymer resins and hardeners — very similar to epoxy glue. The epoxy resin and hardener, when applied to flooring, creates a strong chemical bond, forming a hard plastic material. Epoxy flooring bonds well to concrete. Prevalent in commercial and industrial uses, epoxy flooring is becoming popular in residences (especially garage floors) for its durability, appearance, longevity, and affordability.
TOP 3 ACCENTS FOR EPOXY FLOORING
- Add color to the epoxy flooring itself. One of the reasons epoxy flooring is booming in popularity is because of the variety of epoxy flooring options and colors you can create. Painting Plus of Colorado uses color chips (also known as flakes or flecks) to create gorgeous patterns, colors, and blends. You can create, unique epoxy flooring with any color combination and size of chips to make your epoxy the focal point of your chosen room.
- Lighting. Light has been shown to affect mood, and the right light can either make a room bright and inviting or dull and dreary. When you have a professionally installed epoxy floor coating applied to your floors by a company such as Painting Plus of Colorado, you can choose lighting to accent your floors. Floor lamps are great for generating mood, such as relaxing and cozy to nostalgic and romantic. Overhead lighting can be a great accent as well, such as a chandelier, to accent your flooring. Consider your flooring during the day and the night, as a cute, dinosaur night light may be just the final touch you need for your new epoxy flooring coating.
- Rugs. Rugs are powerful accents when used correctly. Plus, many people love a warm floor on a cold night in the middle of winter. Depending on the color you chose for your color chips in your epoxy floors, you’ll want to choose a rug that is not too big to overwhelm the room and one whose colors complement your flooring and not clash or overwhelm as well. You may want a solid rug instead of a pattern rug, depending on the intricacy of your color chips. Consulting an interior designer can help or your mother-in-law who loves Pinterest and knows the best complementary colors. Furthermore, consider the room your rug will be placed in. If it’s a room with a lot of foot traffic, odds are you don’t want a shag rug that will collect dirt and pet hair rather easily.
