1. Textured look

You don’t want your garage floors to actually be textured. This would make the surface very hard to clean. But a textured appearance can add visual interest and hide the appearance of dirt.

2. Neutral colors

Natural shades like charcoal and khaki are versatile, ensuring they’ll match any car you buy in the future. Consider a shade of silver or brown for your garage. You can also select a color based on your garage’s cabinetry.
