Designing and creating the coolest garage is a must. Your prized ride deserves the perfect garage. These factors include everything from making sure your garage has the space for your cars to picking the perfect RaceDeck flooring color. There are several questions you need to ask yourself when choosing your RaceDeck flooring layout and this blog post will help you do just that.
Q: Do I want to increase the brightness of my garage?
If your answer to this question is yes, it’s a good idea to choose RaceDeck tile combinations of alloy and graphite. You could also install all alloy tiles for a clean, fresh look if that’s the vibe you’re going for. Lighter colors of garage tiles also help reflect natural light well–this is great if your garage has a lot of windows. Installing light-colored garage flooring will make your garage feel spacious and open, which can feel very inviting.
Q: Do I want alternating colors that complement the colors of my cars I have in my garage?
Complementary colors are two different colors that can cancel each other out when mixed together and when placed next to each other, they create good contrast. Here are a few examples of complementary colors:
- Blue and yellow
- Green and red
- Orange and blue
- Green and purple
- Purple and yellow
The color combinations are simple, yet help create a fun atmosphere in your garage. Color combos like blue and yellow add a bit of a pop and liven up where you show off your cars. Adding a fun bright color can also be a great way to tie in any custom paint jobs done on your vehicles.
Alternatively, you can match pieces or the whole floor to your cars, like these garages have below.
Q: What are the colors of my favorite sports team?
Going with the colors of your favorite sports team is always a great choice. It doesn’t matter if your number one team is professional or amateur. You’ll always be able to customize your RaceDeck flooring so everyone knows what color you bleed on game day!
Many RaceDeck customers create their garage around a theme, be it sports, cars, bikes, or anything they choose. See some examples of themed garages below.
Q: How can I create more contrast in my garage when all of my cars are the same color?
To show more of the color of your cars, one thing you can do is install RaceDeck flooring of contrasting colors to your cars. This works particularly well when your vehicles all have the same color. To create more contrast, here are three color combination ideas you can use in your garage:
- Blue cars with all orange garage tiles
- Yellow cars with all black garage tiles
- Red cars with all alloy garage tiles
You could even have separate color tiles for each spot your park your cars depending on the colors of the car. This works well if not all of your cars have the same paint color, i.e. placing orange tiles only where you park your blue car.
