While a lot of people use epoxy coatings on garage floors, basements, pool decks, and for other outdoor applications, have you ever been to someone’s house only to notice their surface looks remarkably better than most? The reason is that rather than just having the coating applied, they chose to have it enhanced.
The following are four of the best ways to take the appearance of epoxy coatings to a new level.
- Metallic Flakes – When having a product like SunMetal FX applied, the surface has tiny sparkles throughout that look similar to stars. They are formulated with metallic flakes, and you decide the color and the density you want. For a subtle look, have the installer broadcast minimal flakes, or for something more dramatic, go with a much denser volume.
- Quartz Beads – Another way to enhance epoxy coatings is with quartz beads. Because these come in a variety of colors and sizes, you can change the appearance of any space. With this, you can opt for a single color or go all-out with a rainbow effect.
- Colored Glass – Similar to quartz beads, colored glass gives epoxy surfaces a beautiful and unique look. Just imagine how this would transform your garage or mud room, creating something different from anything your neighbors have. During both daylight and nighttime hours, any reflection of light would make the colored glass sparkle.
- Colors – A lot of people have the misconception that epoxy coatings are clear. Although you could go that route, you will find a tremendous spectrum of available colors. If you want to create a casual living area, you could stick with earthy tones, whereas, for something with tremendous personality, you might consider one of the many shades of reds, blues, greens, yellows, and oranges.
Especially with a product like SunEpoxy 100, not only do you have one of the best epoxy coatings for high-traffic areas, but you also get the chance to make it beautiful using one of the four enhancements mentioned.
