Simple Guidelines for Choosing Garage Paint Colors

May 30, 2022

Garages are one of the most useful – and used – rooms. The colour of your garage makes a huge difference – both inside and out.

Painting garages is like painting any other room – a few preparations, tape and drape, proper paint selection, and a free weekend. But garages have some extra considerations.

Our professional painting experts can give your garage a fresh new look – and help it stand up to whatever you throw it's way.

Garage Painting Can Be Easy and Fun!

Garage painting is a great way to customize your garage and make it look new. Whether it's the walls, floor or exterior, there are many ways to transform your garage through painting.

Whatever reason you want to paint your garage, we're here to help. 

Here Are a Few Tips to Get You Started

  • Set a budget for the project. Be honest with how much you expect to spend on painting your garage. Remember, you'll need equipment (if you don't already have it) besides paint.
  • Decide if you need to use interior or exterior paint. If you have an attached garage, use interior latex-based paint.
  • Calculate how much paint you'll need. Use our handy paint calculator to determine how many gallons of primer and paint you'll need. Plan on a single coat of primer and two coats of paint. Don't forget the ceiling!
  • Gather the painting tools you already have and decide what you'll need to get the job done. We'll provide a checklist in the next section to help you get ready.
  • Find the best paint within your budget after you gather equipment. Look for low-VOC, stain-blocking, mould and mildew resistant, scrub resistant, and a hue you love!
