Fixing up my garage.. Help!!

So just looking for opinions... One of the first things I am doing this year, is fixing my garage! I want to paint the interior and do something to the floor. The walls are drywalled, so any paint will work, and I was thinking about doing something a bit bold in color. And the floor is currently cement, and open for suggestion. It is an average sized garage, about 22'x28'... so what do ya think????

An epoxy based floor coating is a good way to go,

Doing the garage will be cool. Do a search here. There was a post a couple of years back about this. Some really nice stuff.

I think epoxy is the way to go for the floor. There are a lot of nice finishes available. Prep of the concrete will be key for a proper job. I would personally shot blast the concrete for good adhesion. If the floor has a sealer the epoxy may not bond and start pealing.

Also you can't have enough lighting. That to me is as important as anything else. I cant stand not having enough light. Other functional things like cabinets and a workbench. Cant have enough storage either.

Good luck. Here is a recent link https://www.600rr.net/vb/showthread.p...ge+epoxy+floor Couldnt find the one i was thinking of.

Def do the epoxy flooring, bold colors for the wall would be cool. Maybe some shlves for tools and such.

Def agree that you can never have to much light. Ah and check out those shelves from Ikea (think thats right) to store your helmets in:icon_lol:.

Check out Griot's Garage. They sell products for detailing your car and bike and also have some nice stuff for your garage. http://www.griotsgarage.com/category/in+your+garage.do
Somewhere on the site they tell you how to install the epoxy floor using an acidic etch compound that helps the epoxy stick to the concrete so that it won't lift when you drive your sticky motorcycle tires over it. Also, if you're not planning on staying at your place long, they sell the tiles for garages that lock together. You can always take them apart later if you move.
At the botom of the webpage, in that link, under "Having Fun" is "Garage Ideas," check that out too. Should give you some ideas... also depends how much you want to spend.

Using Muriatic/ hydrochloric acid to etch the floor works the best... don't want to breath the fumes in tho... that's what I have used on my floors in the past.

Im in the same boat as you bro. I started on mine about a month ago and slowly putting it together. My floor is cracked (I'm a cement contractor) so spring I'm ripping it out and putting in a stamped concrete floor. Drywall was expensive so I put up Chipboard aka ply wood. For my ceiling Im putting in white viynl sofit to make it clean. I put a new insulated garage door up and on the inside I have a 4X1 red HONDA decal. Will post pics later on.
