Garage floor paint is designed to be far more durable than standard paints and they also allow you to add some colour to dull concrete floors. Whether your garage is used as a workshop for all your DIY projects or to store cars, there are plenty of paints to choose from.
Due to the vast size of most garage floors, it’s important that you buy plenty of paint for the job. The majority of our recommendations provide up to 10 square metres of coverage per litre but for peace of mind, it’s always advised to buy more paint than you need.
To assist you in selecting a garage floor paint, our handpicked selection lists top-performing paints, chosen based on our first-hand experience painting garage floors of all sizes. Our testing and up-to-date research further ensure the quality of our recommendations.

How The DIY Works Team Tests & Rates The Garage Floor Paints
As we own a number of properties that have garages attached (Airbnb’s and rentals) as well as a garage at the DIY Works office, we’ve had the pleasure of testing a range of garage floor paints. As you can see from the photos below, grey is our favourite colour to paint garage floors but most brands offer a selection of colours to choose from.
To keep up our commitment to reviewing and testing the latest garage floor paints (for this article), we are continually testing the latest offerings from top brands in the UK.
During our ongoing testing of the garage floor paints, we analyse the paint’s finish, ease of use, coverage and durability.
As you can see from the before and after photo we took of a recent garage floor painting project, a fresh lick of paint really does make a big difference.
If it’s your first time painting a garage floor, we strongly recommend attaching an extension pole to your paint roller. This is because it’ll make painting the floor far easier and less strenuous on your back. It’s worth pointing out that as well as a roller, you’ll also require paint brushes for tight spaces and edging.
As well as testing and our experience painting multiple garage floors, we also based our recommendations on the latest research and several factors. Some of the factors that we considered included the paint’s durability, oil and grease resistance, finish, coverage, ease of application, colour selection, dry time and value for money.
